Energy Efficiency Program
Otero County Electric Cooperative, Inc. (OCEC) has determined that it is in the best interest of our Members to place into effect an Energy Efficiency Program Fund. The fund will be financed by a one percent adder to members’ bills and by retaining the inspection and supervision fees that were previously paid to the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC). The OCEC Board of Trustees (Board) will approve the basics of the fund and determine those programs that continue to provide services to our Members. The Board will cause a report to be generated each year concerning the expenditures of the fund and forward an approved report to the PRC.
The OCEC Energy Efficiency Program will offer rebates to OCEC customers who have additional insulation or weatherization installed in their existing home or business. In addition to weatherization, OCEC is offering rebates for certain Energy Star electric appliances and high efficiency water heaters, as well as some commercial rebates.
All requests for rebates must be submitted with completed form and receipt of purchase, as well as any documents supporting the ENERGY STAR certification. Rebate forms may be obtained at each OCEC office or can be downloaded from this website. See link below.
