Kudos to New Energy Economy (seriously)

We have MASSIVE policy disagreements with New Energy Economy (NEE) which self-describes as a “radical” environmental group.

But, they deserve praise for filing a complaint with New Mexico’s Public Regulation Commission over PNM’s sudden move to start co-branding with Avangrid which began a few months back and was noticed and discussed by RGF in early August. While RGF fully expects the merger (denied by the PRC) to be approved once Gov. Lujan Grisham gets to nominate her own PRC members under New Mexico’s new constitutional amendment, we (like NEE) question how the utility has been co-branding with a purchaser that has thus far been denied.

How will this play out? We have no idea? Does this mean RGF and NEE have some kind of “meeting of the minds?” Hardly. These folks (like us) opposed Lujan Grisham’s 2019 Energy Transition Act as well, but we HARDLY see eye-to-eye.
