Through its Community Partner Program, EPE provides assistance and support to organizations which:

“El Paso Electric is proud to support those organizations that offer assistance to many people in our community,” said Tom Shockley, Chief Executive Officer at EPE. “It is through the relationship between these organizations and El Paso Electric that together we can make a difference in many people’s lives.”
