Councilor Bushee Councilor hope to see you tomorrow night! We understand no one likes paying more for anything, and electricity is no different. Because we value our relationship, we want to inform you about a proposed change that impacts you. PNM has filed a request with the N.M. Public Regulation Commission to increase electricity rates beginning Jan.1, 2016. This request is about ensuring you continue to receive reliable service ‘and move towards a cleaner electric supply. Approximately 92 percent of the requests to recover$585 million in system improvements incurred to serve our customers from 2010 through 2016. To recover those investments we are proposing an overall retail rate increase of 12 percent. The net impact, however, will be 7.7 percent as some offsetting changes will occur at the same time. The average homeowner will see a price increase of about $9.75 per month, or 32 cents per day. We take price increases seriously and have kept expenses down. PNM's operating and maintenance costs have only increased 0.2 percent a year since 2010, well below the inflation rate. These investments have improved and maintained the electric system ~ provided strong relabilty, and increased the use of cleaner resources, including natural gas, solar and wind. These investments include © Four new solar centers online by 2016 ($79 million) capable of powering 16,200 average homes: © La Luz Natural Gas Plant online 2016 ($56 milion), to serve customers when demand is. highest, to support renewable energy growth and ensure reliable power under a variety Of grid conditions; ‘* Emission contro! equipment at San Juan Generating Station to comply with federal haze regulations (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction equipment to reduce NOx emissions, $81 milion); + Critical resources for the future: purchasing Rio Bravo Generating Station Natural Gas Plant ($38 million) and purchasing some of the leased assets at Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station Unit 2 ($163 million); and Investments to keep our electric system reliable, including a $30 milion investment at PNM''s Rio Puerco Switching Station, a critical hub in our transmission system, $8 milion for substation hardening to increase security, and modemizing our distribution system operations center. {As part of this request the company is also proposing changes to our electric rate pricing structure to better align rates with how customers use our system. Proposed changes to the electric rate pricing structure are: ‘+ ARevenue Balancing Account pilot program, also known as decoupling, designed to ‘support recovery of fixed costs that are critical to service reliability, similar to fuel adjustments that are regularly recovered; «The proposed changes to rate structure include an economic development tariff to ‘support state and local efforts to retain and attract companies that provide economic based jobs, ‘+ Acistributed generation interconnection fee, applied only to new rooftop solar customers after Jan. 1, 2016, ensure that these customers pay their use of the system. ‘We remain committed to providing you with affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible electricity.

The letter (see attached) urges Governor Susanna Martinez to commit to a concrete goal to support solar energy that would make a huge difference for the future of our environment and our communities. Our organization's new report shows that New Mexico could meet 25% of our energy needs from solar by 2025. The average growth rate of solar installations in our state over the past three years is 81%. Even if the average rate slowed to a third of that, the 25% by 2025 solar goal remains feasible. Yet to ensure that we meet our solar capacity, we must keep moving forward and prioritize solar in our state's energy future. Will you sign our letter urging Governor Martinez. t0 commit to the 25% by 2025 solar goal? ‘Thank you for your time. Let me know if you have any questions or comments. Best, Breanna Ryan Environment New Mexico P.O. Box 40173 Albuquerque, NM 87196 cell: 928-814-9450 work: 505-254-2090 Dear Governor Martinez, ‘As local and state civic leaders, we encourage you to make solar energy a key element of New Mexico's energy future. By using solar energy to power our homes, businesses, schools, farms and government buildings, we can reduce pollution, lower energy bills and boost local economies. Yet, currently only a small fraction of ‘New Mexico's power comes from the sun Solar is growing, in our state and across the country. Over the past three years solar capacity in New Mexico grew an average of 81 percent per year. In the first half of 2014, more than half of the new electric power capacity installed in the U.S. was solar. Recent progress shows we can take it to the next level Solar helps the environment, but it also boosts local economies. The solar industry jobs grew ten times faster than the rest of the economy in 2013. New Mexico Is home to over 1,900 jobs and counting. The price of solar drops each year, making ita sound investment that will be competitive with oll in @ few short years, Using more solar energy here in New Mexico will help to protect our environment while creating additional local jobs that cannot be outsourced. By committing New Mexico to expanding solar, we are investing in a virtually limitless energy source ‘with no fuel costs. For the sake of our environment, our health, and the economy, we ask that you join Us in committing the state to getting 25 percent of our power from the sun by 2025. The cost of air and water pollution from fossil fuels is growing, along with the threats posed by climate change. Please help to set strong goals for solar in New Mexico, to put us on a path to clean energy leadership, Sincerely, Minneapolis City of Lakes Office of the City Attorney Suant Sep a October 21, 2014 0 Suh het Roo 210 Nesape wees otis 12 32019 Cratisen Fox 812 6732 Cine Oison Fx 612 673218 (GADFAL 612 673512 Ty 612 6792151 Jennifer Thulien Smith Xcel Energy Assistant General Counsel 414 Nicollet Mall, 5" Floor Minneapolis, MN 55401 Re: Memorandum of Understanding Clean Energy Partnership Dear Jennifer, Please find enclosed an original of the executed Memorandum of Understanding/Clean Energy Partnership between the City and Xcel Energy.
