El Paso Electric’s Renewable Energy Tariff Program enables EPE customers to partner with EPE in promoting the use of electric energy that is generated from renewable energy technologies.

How does it work?

The program, which is offered on a voluntary basis, allows customers to contribute to the development of renewable energy by purchasing blocks of 100 kilowatt hours (kWh).

As an example, a 100-kWh block would be enough energy to operate a typical residential refrigerator for one month. The average household in our area uses approximately
500 kWh of electricity per month.

Participants in the EPE Renewable Energy Tariff Program will not notice any difference in their electric service. The energy generated from renewable energy will be combined with energy generated from conventional fuels. The difference is in the reduction of the future use of conventional fuels used to generate electricity.

What are the costs?

Customers who choose to participate in the EPE Renewable Energy Tariff Program are charged an additional fee as part of their regular monthly electric bill. The monthly fee is based on the number of 100 kWh blocks purchased.

El Paso Electric customers in New Mexico can purchase one or more 100 kWh blocks of clean, renewable energy. The cost of each 100-kWh block, which will be added to your normal bill, is as follows:

  • Residential customers - $5.84 per month
  • Small Commercial customers - $4.26 per month
  • Commercial (General Service-Secondary Voltage) customers - $5.61 per month
  • Commercial (General Service-Primary Voltage) customers - $5.48 per month
