NM Public Advisory Group Meetings

El Paso Electric (EPE) invites members of the public to attend a series of public advisory group meetings.

With the public’s help, EPE will develop its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), pursuant to the New Mexico Efficient Use of Energy Act and the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission’s IRP Rule. EPE’s IRP will identify cost-effective demand-side and supply-side electricity resources to serve EPE’s customers over the next 20 years. The IRP will be submitted to state regulators no later than July 2015, and EPE will update the IRP every three years.

Public participation in the development of EPE’s future resources is critical. EPE encourages all members of the public to attend these public meetings, whether as a residential or business customer or a representative of a trade, non-profit, neighborhood, shareholder, civic or other group.

If you would like any information on EPE's 2015 NM IRP, please contact Curtis Hutcheson at (915) 543-4354 or Mariah Medley at 915-521-4662, or Toll free at 1-800-592-1634, press 7, then the extension.
