Renewable Energy Interconnection

Customers installing and interconnecting a renewable energy generator reduce the energy requirements that would be normally taken from El Paso Electric. At the end of the billing month, El Paso Electric would read the meter and bill or credit the net kiloWatt hours (kWhs) flowing from or to the EPE system. In the event that a renewable energy generator produces more energy than is used by the customer within a billing month, the "negative" kWh are credited at avoided cost to the customer.

There are established guidelines that customers installing and interconnecting a renewable energy generator can follow.
