Green Energy plans with 100% renewable energy are easily accessible and surprisingly affordable as well as very beneficial to the environment.
It’s Easy Being Green with Renewable Energy
It used to be that the only game in town was Green Mountain Energy. And while they are the best known brand of green energy, they are not the only one. Far from it!
Most Texas electricity providers offer 100% Renewable Energy electricity plans, also known as Green Electricity or Green Energy.
In 2019, Gexa Energy took the bold move to make all of their plans 100% renewable energy, at no additional cost to the consumer. TXU Energy offers Free Nights & Solar Days, with 100% solar electricity during the day, and a combination of wind and solar RECs at night.
TXU Energy also offers affordable plans with 25% solar energy, called Solar Saver and Solar Value (with $30 bill credits at 1200 kWh and 800 kWh, respectively.) While these 25% renewable energy plans do not appear below they offer a great value to anyone looking to go green.

How Does Renewable Energy Get to My Home?
Renewable energy does not actually flow to your home. But purchase of 100% renewable energy plans support investment in this infrasctructure for Texas.
Providers purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) from renewable energy generation facilities. One REC represents 1000 kWh of power generated from that facility. When a customer enrolls in a green electricity plan, the provider retires the RECs for the corresponding amount of power that the customer uses.
It must be working — because renewable energy resources like solar and wind will account for 25% of all electricity generated in Texas in 2019. Good job!
