Texas-New Mexico Power's (TNMP) Residential Standard Offer Program promotes energy efficiency among residential electricity customers in its Texas service area. The program provides incentives for the installation of a wide range of measures that reduce customer energy costs, reduce peak demand and save energy. Note that incentives are not paid to customers; Incentives are paid to "Project Sponsors", which may be energy service companies, HVAC and other energy conservation firms customers.

Incentives for "Hard-to-reach" customers, defined as those customers with a total household income of less than 200% of current federal poverty guidelines, are kept on a different payment schedule than standard customers. Potential Project Sponsors must complete an on-line application to participate in the program.

TNMP also offers incentives to builders and raters of Energy Star Certified homes in the TNMP electric distribution area. Incentives are provided to builders and raters who are already participating in the TXU Energy and CenterPoint Energy ENERGY STAR New Home programs. This offer is only valid for builders and raters that have applied to, and are accepted into, Oncor's or CenterPoint's programs. See web site above for details.
