El Paso Electric Issues a Request For Proposals for an Energy Efficiency and Load Management Market Potential Study
EL PASO, Texas – El Paso Electric (EPE) issues a Request for competitive Proposals (RFP) for an Energy Efficiency (“EE”) and Load Management (“LM”) Market Potential Study (“MPS”) to select a proposal(s) from qualified consultants. The selected consultant(s) will work with EPE directly to complete the MPS that defines EE and LM programs for residential, commercial, and industrial customers for a 20-year period in EPE’s service area.
The potential study will assess the technical, economic, and achievable potential for reducing energy, demand, and shifting on-peak electricity usage through EE and LM programs. EPE is looking towards identifying traditional and behavioral EE and LM program potential in New Mexico and Texas service territories. A key application of the MPS will be to determine appropriate levels of EE and LM to be modelled in EPE’s 2024 Integrated Resource Plan.
Prospective bidders for EPE’s RFP have until September 16, 2022, to submit a proposal. The full RFP can be found here.
