EPE customers can now enroll in first-ever solar program

El Paso Electric

El Paso Electric is now accepting subscriptions for its first-ever community solar program.

The new program is an alternative to the customer-owned rooftop solar option.

It is the first program in the state that provides customers with the opportunity to subscribe to solar generation from a new 3-megawatt solar facility, El Paso Electric officials said.

The program is available to all Texas customers, homeowners, renters and business owners. The subscription is portable anywhere within EPE’s Texas service territory. Customers can subscribe to solar generation in 1-kilowatt blocks and will pay a fixed rate of $20.96 per kilowatt.

Customers can calculate the right amount of solar energy for their home by using the energy calculator.

Construction of the community solar facility began last year at the Montana Power Station in east El Paso.

El Paso Electric said it will be completed this spring. Once the facility is complete, subscribers will begin to see solar credits from the program reflected on their electric bill, according to the solar output for the month.
