El Paso Electric’s proposed decrease to its fixed fuel charge has been approved. The average winter electric bill will fall $12.90 per month, according to the utility. Texas regulations allow utilities to pass the cost of fuel used to generate electricity directly to their customers. So when fuel costs fall, so does the fuel charge. El Paso Electric filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to reduce the charge by 62.5%.
