This agreement means that PNM will own zero coal generation by the end of 2024 - 7 years ahead of schedule. 

PNM's Escalante coal plant closed in October and its San Juan coal plant is sceduled to close in 2022.

All coal should/could be gone from Western US by 2030.

That's a rapid jump up in the end of coal, good for PNM. Are they investing in any sort of programs that help the affected coal communities or the workers at their coal plants to be re-skilled and supported amid that transition?
