The state Public Regulation Commission during an online meeting Wednesday unanimously approved Public Service Company of New Mexico’s request to abandon the coal-fired San Juan Generating Station near Farmington in 2022, and to recover its lost investments in the plant with low-cost bonds paid for by ratepayers.
The meeting, however, was initially derailed by a group of people listening in who interrupted proceedings by playing rap music laden with racial epithets and posting derogatory messages.
