The utility company is seeking permission to give customers and businesses a small refund during the peak summer usage months.

The El Paso Electric Company is hoping to give its Texas and Southern New Mexico customers back a few bucks this summer during the months when people tend to use the most electricity. If approved by the  Public Utility Commission of Texas, customers would see small refunds over a 2 month period. According to the El Paso Herald-Post:

“If both the refund and refund period are approved, the average residential customer may see a monthly savings of about $5.94 in July and about $6.58 in August for a total savings of $12.52 over the two-month period. Large commercial customers will receive a one-time credit in July 2020.” - El Paso Herald Post
