Being duly apprised in the premises, THE COMMISSION FINDS AND CONCLUDES: 1. This case was initiated by the Commission on its own motion by the issuance, on Apd128, 2010, of its Order Establishing Mediation. As set forth in that Order, under the terms of a Stipulation aplbroved by the Commission in Case No. 04-00315-UT, none of the Signatories to the Stipulation, which in- cludes Public Service Company of New Mexico ("PNM), could seek or sup- port any change in PNM's cost of service rates to the PNM customers that were previously served by Texas-New Mexico Power Company (the "PNM South customers") that would go into effect prior to January 1,2011. The Stipulation further provides that the Signatories could not support combining the cost of service rates PNM charges to its PNM South Customers and its other customers (hereinafter referred to as the PNM North customers) after December 31,2010 that would require a shift in annual revenue requirements from the PNM South Customers to the PNM-North Customers of greater than $1.5 million per year. See Case No. 04-00315=UT, StipulatiOn, 11. Thus, under the Stipulation, PNM could file an application to change the rates for its PNM South customers on a stand-alone basis, assuming the Commission imposes a nine-month suspension period, at anytime on or after April 1,2010. 2. In anticipation of that rate filing, the Commission initiated this pro- ceeding to explore whether there are any measures that can and should be taken to mitigate the rate increases that were anticipated to proposed by PNM for the PNM South Customers. On June 1,2010, PNM submitted that rate filing in Case No. 10-00086-UT, which proposed an increase of approximately 22% for the PNM North Customers and an approximately 20% increase for the PNM South Customers. 3. Although the Commission initially attempted to have this matter re- solved through mediation among all interested parties, those efforts proved unsuccessful. Thus, the Commission, on March 4, 2010, issued its Order Initiating Investigation By Requiring Informational Filing ("March 4 Order"), which formally commenced an investigation into whether and how the antici- pated rate increases to the PNM South Customers could be mitigated. In response to the information that was filed pursuant tc the March 4 Order, the Commission, on May 26, 2010, issueo its Order Setting Hearing, Establishing Procedural Deadlines and Designating Hearing Examiner ("March 26 Or- der"). In that Order, the Commission determined to proceed to hold a hearing in this case, focused on the issues of whether the allocation of 50% of a certain generating facility, the Affon facilities, and 50% of the fuel costs and related transmission costs of that facility, and the allocation of none of PNM's baseload units (the Four Corners, San Juan and Pale Verde Units 1 and 2) to the PNM South Customers, and is and continues to the just and reasonable and in the public interest. 4. Although the March 26 Order set a hearing date of July 14, 2010, the Commission subsequently changed that hearing date to July 21,2010, and then vacated that hearing date until further Order of the Commission due to the press of other matters at the Commission. 5. The Commission has determined that the hearing in this case should now be scheduled for December 16, 2010. 6. Although the Commission has previously required PNM to cause notice of this proceeding to be published in a number of newspapers, in order to encourage the greatest number of potentially interested parties to partici- pate in this proceeding, the Commission should extend the deadline for the filing of motions to intervene to December 13. 2010, and require PNM to cause a copy of thid Order to published in the Albuquerque Journal, the Silver City Daily Press and Independent, the Alamogordo News, the Ruidoso News, and the Hidalgo County Herald, by ne later than December 3,2010. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED: A. A public hearing in this case will be held beginning at 2:30 p.m. on December 16, 2010, at the Commission's offices, PERA Building, 1120 Paseo de Peralta, 4th Floor Hearing Room, Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the purpose of receiving evidence, arguments and any other appropriate matters related to this proceeding. The proceeding may be conducted during evenings and the intervening weekend of this period, consistent with the scheduling impera- tives of this case. B. Any person who desires to intervene to become a party to this case, other than the parties in Case No. 04-00315-UT, must file a motion to intervene pursuant to and NMAC, by no later than De- cember 13, 2010.
