El Paso Electric Co. Announces Expansion Plans

El Paso Electric Co. will be adding four new renewable generation resources to cater to its growing service territory.

And as El Paso Electric delves into more renewable energy investments, it has plans underway to exit its minority interest in the coal-fired Four Corners power plant by selling its stake in units 4 and 5.

Decreased miscellaneous income due to the gain on the sale of land in first quarter of 2014 with no comparable activity in the current quarter. Decreased deregulated Palo Verde Unit 3 revenues, primarily due to a 35% decrease in proxy market power prices reflecting a decline in the price of natural gas. Increased depreciation and amortization due to an increase in depreciable plant. Total sales were 2,343,406,000 kWh for the quarter against 2,315,935 kWh a year ago. The company is affirming earnings guidance range for 2015 of $1.75 to $2.15 per share. Capital expenditures for 2015 are expected to be $259.5 million.
