El Paso Electric Issues an All Source Request For Proposal to Reliably Meet Growing Demand for Texas Customers by 2025

EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--El Paso Electric (EPE) issues an All Source Request for Proposal (RFP) to obtain 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.


“Unlike many other electric utilities around the country who have leveled out when it comes to their customer base, we continue to experience a two percent customer base growth rate year-over-year, which inevitably leads to an increase in energy usage and customer demand,” shares President and CEO Kelly A. Tomblin. “It is our responsibility to continue to meet this growing demand cost effectively and with the service and reliability that our customers and community have come to expect and deserve.”

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.

Prospective bidders for EPE’s All Source RFP have until December 23, 2021, to submit an intent to bid. The full RFP can be found at epelectric.com, here.
