PNM, New Mexico's largest electric utility, has tapped First Solar Inc. to construct three solar power plants totaling 23 MW.

The utility filed for approval of the agreement with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission last month. These new projects are in addition to five plants completed in 2011 and an additional 21.5 MW of solar PV to be completed this year - all totaling 67 MW that First Solar has contracted or is expected to construct with PNM by the end of 2014.

The three projects, once approved, are expected to begin construction and be completed in 2014.
