Electricity customers living in deregulated states have more choices than ever when it comes to the type of electricity plan they choose for their home or business. Renewable energy plans 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. Some also offer customers the ability to convert any available plan into a green plan for a small monthly fee. Electricity providers in Texas that allow customers to convert any traditional electricity plan into a green plan for an additional fee include Just Energy, Amigo, Tara, and Spark Energy.
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!
