El Paso Electric is proposing to raise rates in El Paso, Texas, consequently dis-incentivizing solar power in The Sun City. El Paso Electric's proposal will motion to inequitably increment the average residential electric bill in El Paso by $8.41 per month, that translates to an increase of nearly 12 percent; and the average residential solar bill by a substantial $12 per month, translating to nearly 24 percent. This petition appeals to corroborate efforts in equalizing solar with respect to traditional electrical increase rates to re-incentivize, maintaining nonpartisan treatment of solar and non-solar grid applications. The prevention of this potential obstacle to the implementation of solar technology could instead result in a potential increase in number of households installing solar power and ultimately ecological mindfulness.
