During the month of April, customers can visit and fill out a thank you card to the crews who work in their neighborhoods. The website will be live through April 30. Customers can also insert their own faces over lineman photos and view other cards that people have submitted.

The energy company gave a shout-out to the crews working in Ruidoso after the major fire and weather conditions. PNM says over 60 linemen were deployed each day from Tuesday, April 12 through Sunday, April 17 working long hours to make repairs to ensure that all customers got their power back on safely.
