Cool Roofs

Improve Comfort. Save Energy.

El Paso Electric’s New Mexico commercial customers have the opportunity to participate in the EPESaver Commercial Cool Roof Rebate Program. The installation of a Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) rated product will decrease heat transfer and reduces the solar heat transmitted into the building space resulting in less cooling energy use.

The Knowledge You Need.

Available only to commercial customers in El Paso Electric’s New Mexico service area.

CRRC cool roofs offer enhanced durability and reduced cooling loads. Rebates will be paid per square foot of installed cool roof materials.

Rebate Amounts
Building Type Incentive Rate
Office-RTU & Retail $0.180
Hotel, Warehouse, & Other Space Types $0.125

Note: Small commercial chiller applications are currently excluded. Please reach out to program representatives to estimate rebates for chiller cooled facilities.
