19:09 EDTPNMPNM Resources files for transmission formula rate increase
PNM Resources' New Mexico utility, PNM, filed a request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, for a $3.2M transmission rate increase and permission to adjust transmission rates annually based on an approved formula. The request will not impact retail rates for New Mexico customers, only wholesale customers who use PNM transmission lines to deliver power. PNM has asked for FERC approval by March 2013. The filing proposes a return on equity of 10.81%, based on a rate base of $317.5M and a revenue requirement of $82.1M. Once approved, an annual adjustment will be made each June to update for the prior year's costs reflected in the latest FERC Form 1 filing.

11:00 EDTPNMSan Juan would be ideal dropdown candidate for Westmoreland, says Brean Capital
After PNM Resources (PNM) announced Westmoreland Coal (WLB) will take over coal operations servicing the San Juan Generating Station in New Mexico from BHP Billiton (BHP) in early 2016, Brean Capital said it thinks these assets would be an "ideal" candidate for further dropdown to Westmoreland LP (WMLP), which the firm would expect to be an accretive transaction for Westmoreland. Brean, which views Westmoreland's track record of executing attractive acquisitions as "solid" in recent year, reiterates its Buy rating and $46 price target on the shares.
09:02 EDTPNMPNM Resources to file two agreements with New Mexico regulators
PNM Resources' (PNM) New Mexico electric utility, Public Service Co. of New Mexico, will file with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission substantially final coal supply and participant restructuring agreements for San Juan Generating Station. The agreements will be filed as part of PNM’s ongoing regulatory proceedings seeking NMPRC approval of the SJGS Plan settlement agreement filed in October 2014. Approval of the settlement agreement is an important step in implementing a revised state plan that benefits customers and complies with federal visibility regulations under the Clean Air Act. The new coal supply agreement states that the intended new coal mine owner, Westmoreland Coal Company (WLB), will take over operations at the beginning of 2016. The current agreement with the existing coal mine owner, BHP Billiton (BHP), would have terminated at the end of 2017. The earlier transaction date allows PNM customers to more quickly benefit from fuel savings of approximately 15-20 percent in 2016 and 2017. The savings will be passed along to customers through the company’s fuel clause. The new coal supply agreement expires in 2022, but SJGS owners can extend the agreement beyond 2022, to coincide with the SJGS owners’ plans for operation of the plant after 2022. The new coal supply agreement and the agreement in principle for Westmoreland to purchase San Juan Mine will not be final or binding until all parties have secured internal approvals. PNM and the other owners of the plant will now work to secure all final approvals from their respective governing bodies. A SJGS participant restructuring agreement will also be filed today with the NMPRC, identifying the ongoing ownership of the plant effective January 1, 2018. The agreement identifies PNMR Development and Management Company, an unregulated subsidiary of PNM Resources, as the owner of 65 MWs of SJGS Unit 4. SJGS is currently jointly owned by PNM and eight other entities. This agreement allows for the exit of certain participants while, combined with the shutdown of SJGS Units 2 and 3 under the revised state plan, defines the terms of ownership of the remaining capacity among the remaining participants.
