The Public Service Company of New Mexico for the most part secured a win Friday in the Four Corners Power Plant case and aimed for another in its proposed merger with two companies.

PNM and Avangrid of Connecticut agreed in a news release to go along with numerous modifications laid out by a Public Regulation Commission official for the proposed merger, which also would involve Avangrid parent company Iberdrola of Spain.

About the same time Friday afternoon, a hearing examiner, or quasi-judge for the PRC, recommended to the five-member regulation commission that PNM’s proposed departure from Four Corners Power Plant should generally receive the commission’s approval.
