Questions & Answers
Utilities Complaint Form
We recommend that you try to resolve your dispute with the utility company before you contact us. Many disputes can be resolved by asking for a company supervisor. If you cannot resolve the problem, contact us as soon as possible. You can file your complaint by mail, fax, phone, or by email by using our on-line complaint form. You may send a letter detailing the nature of the complaint in lieu of, or in addition to, the complaint form. Depending on the nature and complexity of the complaint, you may be required to submit a written inquiry to expedite investigation.
When the Consumer Relations Division receives your complaint, it will be assigned to a Compliance Officer for investigation and response. Once we have completed the investigation, the Compliance Officer will contact you to discuss the results. We may also contact you during the investigation with questions or requests for more information.
If you are submitting a letter by regular mail, fax, or email, make sure the following information is included:
•Name of the utility company involved
•Full name of the customer of record (NOTE: only the customer of record, or a party authorized with the utility company to discuss the account, can submit complaints. If you are writing on behalf of the customer of record, please indicate this in your letter, and enclose a short statement, signed by the account holder, that authorizes your involvement).
•Mailing address (if different from service address)
•Telephone number(s) involved or gas/electric/water/sewer account number
•Home telephone number
•Telephone number where the Compliance Officer can reach you during the day
•Details of the dispute, to include the company’s response to the complaint and the company representatives spoken to
If you are concerned that your utility service will be disconnected
before your complaint is received, please call the Consumer Relations
Division at (888) 427-5772 to file your complaint by phone. You may be
required to follow up with supporting documentation and/or a letter.
NMPRC regulations prohibit your utility service from being disconnected
while a complaint is being investigated—provided you continue to
pay the undisputed portion of your bill. If you do not pay anything,
the utility can disconnect your service, regardless of the time of year.
If you are not satisfied with the Compliance Officer’s decision, NMPRC regulations permit you to request a further review of the dispute. To do this you must file a formal complaint with the Commission within five (5) days of your receipt of the investigation results. A formal complaint is a legal action, which requires a $25 filing fee to cover the original filing and the production of ten (10) copies.
