(For New Mexico El Paso Electric Customers Only)

YellowBird fought to save You Money!


Thanks to Yellow Bird Services, Dona Ana County, and the City of Las Cruces, together, we have stopped over 10 million dollars per year in unfair El Paso Electric Rate increases. Plus we have stopped the latest attempt by El Paso Electric to increase New Mexico Rates once again. The good news is we won a massive rate decrease for the community with an 8 million dollar decrease as compared to EPE’s latest request.

Yes, you read that right, we got a special rate decrease for those who want it.

What’s the catch?

There really isn’t one.


The bottom line is thanks to New Mexico’s PRC (Public Regulatory Commission), a new “Time of Day Rate” is available only to New Mexico El Paso Electric customers. All you have to do is sign up. It is that easy. The average homeowner will save about 15% just for doing so. If you want to save more, all you have to do is follow the suggested Time of Day guidelines, and you can save even more, maybe even up to 49%. After a year EPE will compare your bills to the standard rate and if you paid more, EPE will credit you the difference. So you can only save money – you can’t pay more.

but we will do it for you!

The problem is El Paso Electric doesn’t tell you about this new rate. (Read the Time of Day Filing here), Even though the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC) ordered EPE to make new rates available, but the sign up process can be confusing. However, Yellow Bird will help you get the best rate for free.

Notes on the Time of Day Rate:

To get the best deal, you must request the best rate.


The Time of Day rate is the best deal, but you must request the rate to get on it.

The benefits are:

  1. You are guaranteed not to pay more than the other rate, so there is no risk to try this rate; you can only pay less. If you don’t wind up saving money, you are guaranteed to have your bills analyzed, and if you would have paid less under the standard rate, EPE will credit you the difference. You can’t lose by trying this rate.
  2. Based on the time of day, the prices change, and so you can save up to 49% for times the other rate is higher.
  3. For a tiny percentage of the time (4% of the year), the time of day price will be double the other rate. So our analysis is that most people will save about 15% overall with a slight effort to use less during the high price time. EPE will not control your home; it is totally up to you. We will provide you a free sticker or a refrigerator magnet that says:


“Avoid high electric prices 3:00 – 7:00 Monday – Friday, June 1 to September 30.”


  1. If you avoid running the dryer or dishwasher and turn up the A/C thermostat a degree or two in these short times (4% of the year), you will save more money. Homes with evaporative cooling and homes that use energy storage thermostats will save even more.
  2. EPE’s largest customers unfairly pay less than half of what residential customers and small commercial customers pay per kilowatt. By participating in this rate, you will be part of a group for whom, we will request further rate reductions (in the next rate case). We expect those who do not participate in this rate will have their electric prices go up in the next rate case. 



Remember: There is no charge and no fee for this rate reduction. You sign up, and you are guaranteed lower prices. It’s that simple.
