El Paso Electric customers living in Texas could soon spend a little less on their monthly bills.

According to a news release, the company filed a request to issue a temporary fuel refund over a four-month period.

Officials say the average residential customer will see a monthly savings ranging from $4.57 to $5.43 per month from June through September if both the refund and refund period are approved.

“As the temperatures continue to rise and energy usage typically increases, the proposed temporary fuel refund is timely for our Texas customers,” said Eddie Gutierrez, Vice President of Strategic Communications, Customer and Community Engagement. 

El Paso Electric reminds the community that although bills are expected to be lower, they should still try to conserve as much energy as possible.

“While this refund can help manage monthly summer electric bills, customers should continue to be mindful of their energy usage during the summer season,” he said.
