PNM Resources (NYSE: PNM) reported Q2 EPS of $0.55, $0.06 better than the analyst estimate of $0.49.

"Warmer temperatures during the second quarter outweighed the reduced load impacts related to COVID-19 and has strengthened our ability to manage within our ongoing earnings guidance range," said Pat Vincent-Collawn, PNM Resources' chairman, president and CEO. "Our top priority continues to be on the safety of our team and caring for our customers and communities. Our response is guided by our vision and values as we manage the current environment while keeping focused on our strategic objectives and goals designed to integrate and deliver the clean energy resources of the future to PNM and TNMP customers."

During today's earnings conference call, PNM Resources will highlight its commitment to ESG principles and share recent achievements in these areas, including additional environmental goals that frame the company's path to emissions-free energy by 2040 and significant reductions in the usage of freshwater. Management will also highlight investment programs that are aligned with these principles, including the recently announced Wired for the Future program to enhance transmission and distribution infrastructure to provide a reliable, resilient and secure energy grid to deliver clean energy.

"PNM is taking a broad view with investments that focus on strengthening our infrastructure to support the transformation to a 100% clean energy portfolio," Vincent-Collawn continued. "Our future investment plans will not reflect new generation additions and will emphasize grid investments to enhance capabilities to adapt and integrate new resources. If regulators determine that PNM should develop new generation resources, however, these projects would need to be balanced with grid investments to maintain the affordability of customer rates. We remain committed to our earnings growth target of 5 to 6 percent through 2023."
