Why the $29 Service Charge?
MPE strives to provide you with affordable and equitable electric
rates and charges. Approximately two-thirds of MPE's operating
costs come from purchasing wholesale power. MPE has
approximately 11 customers per mile of service to pay for its
infrastructure, not 35 or more like other for-profit utilities and
municipalities. As such, the cost for MPE to provide you with
electric service is higher here in the mountains than in
Colorado's urban areas.

What does Mountain Parks Electric look for in a letter of credit?
To waive your deposit, we look for a 12 month history with no more
than 2 late fees. Anything more than that we will require a 3 month deposit.
What is the Operation Roundup Program?
Operation Roundup is a Charitable Trust that accumulates and disburses funds for charitable purposes in the service area of Mountain Parks Electric. We automatically round up every customer’s electric bill to the next highest dollar unless the customer elects not to participate in the program. Just a few pennies a month added to your electric bill can make a huge difference in helping someone get through a difficult time in their life, or help a non-profit organization achieve their dream.
What is the Green Power Program?
Funds go towards the construction of new renewable generation throughout MPEI’s service territory. If you choose to participate in the Green Power program, you will be charged your regular monthly electric bill plus an additional $0.50 for every 100 kWh block purchased. A one year commitment is required.
I’m not comfortable giving my social security number, do I have to give Mountain Parks Electric that?
No. You are not obligated to provide your social security number but if you would like to use our website to view or pay your bill, we will require at least the last 4 of your social.
