Take notice that on March 2, 2012, pursuant to section 206 of the Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 824e, Rules 206, 207, and 212 of the Rules of Practice and Procedure of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission); 18 CFR 385.206 (2012), 18 CFR 385.207 (a)(2), and 385.212 (2012), TGP Granada, LLC (Complainant) filed (1) a formal complaint against the Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) and Tortoise Capital Resources Corp. (Respondents), requesting the Commission to direct the Respondents to identify the party that will immediately assume the obligation for making transmission capacity on the Eastern Interconnection Project (EIP) available to customers now for use after the April 1, 2015 expiration of the EIP Lease Agreement and (2) a petition for declaratory order requesting that the Commission confirm that section 23.2 of the PNM tariff allows the permitted assignee of a Transmission Service Agreement (TSA) to change the point of receipt (POR) associated with the TSA without losing its transmission service priority, provided the change will not impair the operation and reliability of PNM's generation, transmission, or distribution systems. If the Commission denies the Complainant's petition for declaratory order, the Complainant requests that the Commission waives sections 22.2 and 23.2 of the PNM tariff, to allow TGP to change the POR without losing its current transmission service priority.

The Complainant certifies that copies of the complaint were served on the contacts for the Respondents as listed on the Commission's list of Corporate Officials.
