Rates in Texas
EPE offers a special EV charging rate and a whole-house Time-of-Use (TOU) rate that can save customers money by using energy during specific hours.
A) Electric Vehicle (EV) Rate
Both residential and commercial customers qualify for this rate with charging activity operating at 120V or 240V. This rate requires an installation of a separate meter solely for recording energy usage of an electric vehicle.
Here's how to apply for the EV rate.
B) TOU Rate Option
This option is available to residential customers. The rate will apply to the entire house consumption, not specific to EV charging, but that provides the incentive to charge EVs during off-peak hours. This rate does not require installation of a separate meter but requires a meter change.
Here's how to apply for the TOU rate:

However, EPE has filed for approval of special EV charging rates with New Mexico Public Regulation Commission and expects a decision in 2021. To receive updates about when special EV rates become available, please submit your contact information on the EV Community page.
Until special EV-specific charging rates become available, customers may consider enrolling in a whole-house Time-of-Use (TOU) rate. The rate will apply to the entire house consumption, not specific to EV charging, but that provides the incentive to charge EVs during off-peak hours.
