Update: PNM says power outages are plaguing the city

Residents along the North Valley's Fourth Street corridor aren't in the dark any more. But Albuquerque customers are still without power at about 50 other outage sites.
From a PNM news blast:

Crews are working to restore power to those customers. The other outages affect less than 300 people, mostly single homes at this point. An additional 100 +/- customers are affected by 9 outages in the Valencia area.

The utility says extra workers are responding to the outages, and that they'll work through the night if necessary. PNM says that it could take "several hours" for some customers to get their power back.

Earlier this evening, PNM says about 5,300 customers, the largest group affected in the city, lost power because of an equipment failure at their Montano substation. The failure was caused by strong winds.

PNM advises people to avoid downed power lines.

Call (888) DIAL-PNM (888-342-5766) and say "Outage" to report an outage or downed line. To stay current on outage updates, follow "PNMtalk" on Twitter or find them on Facebook. There's also an outage map with estimated restoration times at PNM.com/outage.

PNM: Don't worry about blackouts tomorrow

NPR reported earlier today that the fire in Arizona is nearing a power grid that could cause rolling blackouts for hundreds of thousands of people in New Mexico and Texas. The article said officials thought the fire could reach the grid tomorrow.

Now NPR is reporting that the grid is no longer in danger.

Either way, PNM spokesperson Kevin Fuller said in an interview this afternoon that the electric company has it under control. "With the situation as it is, we are confident, given the information we have right now and the tools we have at hand." Electricity will stay on for PNM customers, he says. The Afton and Lordsburg generating stations in southern New Mexico will be able to fill the gap, should the Arizona fire reach the grid.

If the fire were to move North and East, "that would force us to change our plan a little bit," he speculates. PNM does get electricity from the Farmington area, as well as a plant in Palo Verde.

Fuller says PNM has been in contact with other utilities in the state because if anything happens, PNM should be able to share its excess load. "They would do the same for us if we needed it."
