ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - In what's expected to be a long, contentious process, a few dozen people gathered recently in Albuquerque for the first public meeting hosted by Public Service Co. of New Mexico on the planned shutdown of its coal-fired power plant.
    
The utility says it wants feedback on four proposed options for replacing the power that will be lost when the San Juan Generating Station closes in 2022.
    
The proposals are outlined in a filing made earlier this month with the Public Regulation Commission.
    
Regulators will review the options in public hearings over the next nine to 15 months.
    
The Albuquerque Journal reports PNM also will hold meetings in August with organizations that want to test potential changes in the different scenarios using modeling tools to determine costs and feasibility.
