New Mexico Integrated Resource Plan Public Advisory Process Meetings

El Paso Electric Company ("EPE") invites members of the public to participate in the Integrated Resource Plan (“IRP”) public advisory process through a series of public meetings.  With public participation, EPE will develop its IRP pursuant to the New Mexico Efficient Use of Energy Act and the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission's ("Commission") IRP Rule, 17.7.3 NMAC.  EPE's IRP is developed to identify cost-effective demand-side and supply-side electricity resources to serve EPE's customers over the next 20-year planning period.

The IRP will be submitted to the Commission no later than July 2021.  Public participation is an important component of the development and implementation of EPE's integrated resource planning in New Mexico.  EPE encourages interested members of the public to attend these public meetings to provide public input and commentary, whether as a residential or business customer, or as a representative of a trade, non-profit, neighborhood, shareholder, civic or other group.

Given the currently effective limitations on public gatherings in New Mexico and Texas, the first scheduled meeting will be held electronically and telephonically on July 10, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. MDT.  The IRP process will be explained, and additional meeting dates and locations will be set at that time.  Prior to each meeting, the presentation for that meeting will be posted here.

The links on this page contain the meeting invitations for the online meetings, the meeting presentations, SKYPE recordings, written questions and answers, and other materials relevant to each meeting.
