Wind Power Included in Mesa City Contract

December 31, 2003 [] PNM Resources utility subsidiary, Albuquerque, New Mexico-based holding company PNM, will supply up to 35 MW of power to Mesa, Arizona’s municipal utility. Under an agreement approved by the Mesa City Council, PNM is replacing Ohio-based American Electric Power (AEP) as supplier under a contract that runs through 2013. PNM expects the Mesa contract will produce about US$12 million in additional revenues for the company in 2004. PNM will meet the obligation from its own generation resources and purchased power contracts. The company has a total of 2,461 MW of owned or leased generation and long-term purchase agreements, which includes 200 MW of wind generated power from wind turbines in New Mexico. PNM also has a 390 MW share in the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Wintersburg, Arizona; 957 MW of coal-fired capacity at the San Juan and Four Corners power plants in northwestern New Mexico; and 395 MW of natural gas-fired generation. The City of Mesa Electric Utility serves nearly 16,000 residential and commercial customers located in a 5.5 square mile area of the city.
