The El Paso Electric (EPE) Commercial Efficiency Program pays incentives to commercial and industrial customers who install energy efficiency measures in facilities located within EPE's New Mexico service territory. Eligible equipment includes central air conditioners, chillers, heat pumps, variable frequency drives, window treatments, lighting equipment and custom measures. Large facilities may also develop and implement energy efficiency plans separate from these rebate offerings. Customers should contact the utility for details on this option.

Equipment must meet minimum eligibility criteria and comply with all program rules and procedures. Depending on the technology, customers may need to contact a participating contractor who can recommend specific measures and provide cost estimates. After the installation of the equipment, customers must submit applications along with a copy of a receipt or invoice for the project. Applications may also require information about the capacity, efficiency, and type of equipment installed. Rebate checks will typically be mailed 4 - 6 weeks after final approval. Contact utility or view the program web site for other information and guidelines.
