According to EPE's CEO, Mary Kipp, “El Paso Electric has already been recognized as a national leader in large-scale solar production, and through the community solar program, we are bringing our customers more options for renewable energy,” says Mary Kipp, the utility’s CEO. “Customers can now subscribe to receive a portion of their energy from this renewable power facility without the need to maintain individual or private solar systems.”
Customers can sign up for updates on the voluntary program at epelectric.com, and they will be notified when enrollment begins in February. Customers can subscribe to solar generation in 1-kilowatt blocks for at least a year. They will pay a fixed rate of $20.96 per kW. It’s available to homeowners, renters and business owners.
