Natural Gas

Did you know that roughly 27% of our nation's electricity comes from natural gas? 

Producing power with clean-burning natural gas is an important part of our energy mix, supplying the power needs of thousands of PNM customers, businesses and institutions.

In addition to being clearner burning than coal, natural gas produces only half of the carbon emissions that coal does. Further, New Mexico has abundant supplies of natural gas located in the northwest and southeast corners of the state. 

Natural gas is extremely reliable and helps maintain the state's overall low cost of energy. It is an essential part of the puzzle for ensuring our customers have power when they need it the most, such as hot summer afternoons. Currently, PNM operates seven natural gas facilities in New Mexico, which support hundreds of jobs throughout our state.
