{1} This is a direct appeal of utility rate Case number 2762, involving PNM Gas Services (PNMGS) and the Attorney General acting on behalf of the citizens of the State of New Mexico. This Court has appellate jurisdiction by virtue of NMSA 1978, 62-11-1 (1993). In this case, the New Mexico Attorney General, Public Regulatory Commission staff, and a number of other interested parties negotiated a stipulation with PNMGS that among other things established a new rate plan for PNMGSs customers. The agreement reached by the parties included a $9.00 customer access fee and a standard distribution rate of $0.1044 per therm. Once the parties had agreed to the stipulation, they sought review by the Public Regulatory Commission (PRC or Commission) pursuant to NMSA 1978, 62-6-4 (1993) ("The Commission shall have general and exclusive power and jurisdiction to regulate and supervise every public utility in respect to its rates and service regulations . . . "). The hearing testimony before the PRC only concerned the stipulation and all parties involved urged the PRCs approval of the stipulation. Despite this, the PRC did not adopt the stipulation, but instead established a two-tiered rate plan that was not suggested in the proposed stipulation. The PRCs plan allowed residential customers to elect between a higher customer access fee of $14.56 combined with a lower distribution charge of $0.0393, or choose a lower customer access fee of $9.00 combined with a higher distribution charge of $0.1198 per therm.
