NMPP Energy COVID-19 Update
September 30, 2020
As we move into the cooler temperatures of fall, the NMPP Energy team continues to remain available to serve our member communities while adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NMPP’s Pandemic Response Team has been meeting regularly to proactively respond to the fluid situation. More of our staff is traveling to member communities to ensure we're meeting our members' needs. In July, the team implemented the NMPP Energy Return to Work Plan, which remains fluid and provides for staff to return to the office or to continue teleworking. Currently about 30 percent of staff is working in the field or the office while the remainder are teleworking and most will do so through the end of 2020 at which time we'll reassess our plan.
Our highest priorities remain to assure the safety and well-being of our staff while still being available to serve our member communities. Please contact staff as you normally would via phone and email for any assistance.
Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns and please stay healthy during this challenging time.
