Farmington, N.M. • Citing the impact in their own state, some New Mexico officials are urging Arizona utility deregulators to shelve their consideration of deregulating retail electricity sales.

San Juan County commissioners and Farmington Mayor Tommy Roberts have written separate but similar letters to the Arizona Corporation Commission.

They say deregulation by Arizona could disrupt plans for the Four Corners Power Plant and damage the economies of the county and the Navajo Nation.

Arizona Public Service Co. operates Four Corners and owns parts of the coal-fired plant located near Farmington.

Corporation Commission Executive Secretary Jodi Jerich told The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1ffuz9O) that the commission is aware of the concerns and will not drag its feet.

She said the commission likely will hold a public meeting on the topic by early October.
