Tipping Point episode 244: Impact of Avangrid’s Purchase of PNM – Larry Behrens and Dax Contreras

In this unique and timely episode, Paul sits down with two experts on utilities to discuss the purchase of PNM by Avangrid and the impact the push for “renewables” is having on electricity prices and grid stability in New Mexico.

Larry Behrens runs Power the Future NM which advocates for pro-energy policies. Larry’s group has been critical of the Energy Transition Act.

Dax Contreras was an energy trader for five years working for PNM. Dax’s job was to keep the lights on for PNM customers across New Mexico by purchasing (and selling) power to customers across the Western United States.
