2017-18 Public Advisory Group Meetings

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

With public participation, 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 2018, 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.

Prior to each meeting, the presentation for that meeting, along with a link and call-in number to the online meeting, will be posted on this page.

There are many ways to participate:

  1. Attend in person. Register in advance by emailing your name and contact information to NMIRP@epelectric.com or register in person at the meeting.
  2. Join the web-meeting. Click the link below each meeting date. Instructions to downloading the temporary Skype app here.
  3. Call in. Phone number and conference ID are shown below each meeting date.

If you would like any additional information, please contact Maritza Perez at Maritza.Perez@epelectric.com or at (915) 543-2057.
