FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas is not a fan of a plan to keep an aging coal-fired plant going with a mix of coal, natural gas, nuclear and solar generation.

The Daily Times in Farmington reported (https://bit.ly/1FHxtAp) Saturday that Balderas says Public Service Co. of New Mexico’s proposal regarding the San Juan Generating Station “isn’t good enough.”

Balderas, who was a supporter in the past, said during a news conference Wednesday that the current proposal doesn’t utilize enough renewable energy resources.

Balderas says he wants to see a revised plan by Aug. 1.

Supporters say if the plan isn’t approved by the Public Regulation Commission, the plant and the san Juan Mine could close.

They say Balderas’ comments are disappointing since the plan already offers solar power.
