PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY OF NEW MEXICO,
Case No. 12-00007-UT
William H Payne, author of the PNM Alternate Report: Electric Integrated Resource Plan for the Period ..., and intervenor in CASE NO. 11-00369-UT in compliance with NMAC 184.108.40.206A hereby requests to intervene.
220.127.116.11 INTERVENORS AND COMMENTERS: A. Intervention: Any person other than staff and the original parties to a proceeding who desires to become a party to the proceeding may move in writing for leave to intervene in the proceeding.
(1) The motion for leave to intervene shall indicate the nature of the movant’s interest in the proceeding.
(2) The motion shall also comply with the provisions of this rule governing pleadings except that the motion shall indicate the facts relied upon as grounds for intervention.
(3) Motions for leave to intervene shall be served on all existing parties and other proposed intervenors of record.
1 Nature of interests in the proceeding are:
A Ensure that decision for rate increase is based on facts provided by engineers and scientists as opposed to liberal arts verbal and essay analysis.
B Determine if the New Mexico Renewable Energy Act NMSA 1978, §§ 62-16-1 et seq. ("REA") is merely an alternergy business ploy.
C Determine if large-scale solar and wind generation of electricity equipment purchase, installation and maintence costs are greater than electruc sales revenue derived from them.
D Determine if Energy Returned on Energy Invested is greater than one for Schott solar panels.
E Determine if proper disposal of toxic solar panels is considered.
F Compel PNM and Schott Solar to respond through Discovery to requests for information for which responses to past requests were promised but never fulfilled.
G Expose unintelligence and incompetence at the PRC and New Mexico state government.
2 Facts relied upon include:

From actual experience, wind farms produce 1.2 watts per square meter. Solar Thermal and Photovoltaic methods capture 5 to 6 watts per square meter. There is no economy of size in either technology. Dividing the watts you need by those values gives the land area in square meters needed to produce the juice. The numbers are astronomical
of possible science/engineering problems with wind and solar generation of electricity,
B MorganStanley VP informs prospective intervenor that large-scale solar generation of electricity is a fraud.
MorganStanley is reported to have lost about $24.1 million in the bankruptcy of Eclipse Aviation.
C Renewables, like solar and wind, may not be the best way to go?Efficiency winning the day
The second big trend—which is driven in part by the first—is that VCs are focusing on less-capital-intensive, “demand side” investments of modest size in the smart grid, energy efficiency and energy storage markets. For instance, there’s a slew of software companies offering applications that let utilities manage energy distribution more effectively and that enable the utilities’ customers to reduce energy consumption and costs.
“Renewable energy has been a big theme for many years,” said Lux’s Holman. “I think energy efficiency is going to take center stage.”

can provide data as to costs of solar arrays, installation, and maintence and revenue from sale of electricity to determine whether large-scale solar generation makes sense from a financial standpoint. PNM must be forced furnish this information under Discovery.
F PNM load forecaster Mr Steve Martin identified sources of demand for electricity on August 21, 2007, PNM Alvarado Square, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Growing number of customers, increased construction surely contributes to increase of natural gas consumption.
Hearing examination should include analysis of whether limiting new construction is more effective than energy efficiency if there is a problem with future natural gas supply?
