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 29% of all electricity generated in Texas in 2020. Good job!
