New Mexico Grid Modernization

New Mexico Office of the Attorney General
Project completed.

Synapse provided technical assistance and expert testimony on behalf of the New Mexico Attorney General regarding the grid modernization plans of El Paso Electric Company, Southwestern Public Service Company, and Public Service Company of New Mexico.

Synapse reviewed the methodologies, assumptions, and benefit-cost tests included in the plans. Synapse also assessed the extent to which the proposed plans meet the grid modernization goals of the state, support incorporation of distributed energy resources, and provide new programs and innovative rate design to customers.

Synapse also supported the New Mexico Attorney General with developing a response to the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission's Second Bench Request related to the potential promulgation of a comprehensive grid modernization rule.
