Every time energy is used, the natural environment can be affected. The more carefully energy is developed and used, the more the earth is protected. One way to protect the natural environment is to promote the use of energy from renewable resources.
El Paso Electric is committed to supporting the development of renewable energy projects in its west Texas and southern New Mexico service territory.
