PNM Resources college journalism major CEO proposes to burn natural gas for electricity generation. Along with large-scale solar and wind too.

New Mexico Gas Company must study ways to save gas.

Must? Yup, the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission mandates this.

Steve Casey explained PRC process at Monday June 16, 2014 meeting.

Mr Casey and Mr Fernald both stated that the amount of natural gas consumed by New Mexico Gas Company was increasing because of more customers but the amount per customer was decreasing. ...

Mr Fernald's revelation that NMGCO efficiency program only accounts for 3/10% of gas saved by customer's efficiency measures may suggest that the energy efficiency rate increase application and subsequent hearing is a waste of NMGCO customers' money?

Public Service Company of New Mexico plans to build four more solar power plants at a cost of $79 million to help it meet the state standard for renewable energy in 2016. The additional 10-megawatt solar power plants will raise the company's solar capacity to 107 megawatts, which could provide the power used by 40,000 average homes in a year.

"We believe our proposal will help us provide dependable power cost-effectively while reducing water use and carbon emissions at power plants," said PNM Planning and Resource Director Pat O'Connell said in a statement. 

[Solar installations in the West are currently being backed up by coal plants, but these must be kept running all the time. Estimates are that the solar element will reduce carbon emissions only by 3 to 5 percent - and could increase them as much as 10 percent.]

Large-scale solar and wind generation of electricity a Scam/fraud?
