2021 All Source RFP for Electric Power Supply and Load Management Resources for Texas

El Paso Electric (EPE) issues an All Source Request for Proposal (RFP) to obtain short-term and/or long-term generating resources including renewable energy for Texas customers by 2025. The objective of this RFP is to meet the growing customer demand EPE is experiencing, specifically for its Texas service territory, and to meet the anticipated 2025 summer peak.

EPE’s initial resource planning studies project a capacity need of approximately 175 to 225 megawatts (MW) before May 1, 2025. New generation is also necessary to offset EPE’s planned retirements of older, less-efficient generating units.
