Learn about green energy in Texas
In 2015, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) named Texas the largest electricity producer in the country. The state has introduced sustainable energy solutions such as wind power and solar power. Texas is mostly known for its wind energy, which produces about 10 percent of the state's electricity.
Residents and business owners can join in on Texas' eco-friendly initiatives through a green supply plan. With this type of plan, Mont Belvieu REPs purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) on the energy user's behalf. The RECs offset home or business daily usage by adding the same amount of clean electricity to the grid.
In addition, REPs might be involved in renewable energy initiatives throughout Texas communities! If green energy support is important to you, take a look at REP websites to learn details. Not only do these eco-friendly efforts impact your community, but they also support the greater good of Texas' environment.
Understand when to contact your utility
Although most Texans choose a REP, they'll still contact their utility company for certain power issues. A REP supplies your business or home with electricity and generates your monthly bill, but a utility distributes your electricity supply to the proper location.
Also, it's important to remember that Texas utility companies are known as transmission and distribution service providers (TDSPs). Residents and business owners can't choose their TDSP – it's determined by service area location. Not sure what service area your home or business falls under? The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) lists seven TDSPs as well as a service area map for consumers. Energy consumers may contact their TDSP when they experience an outage or request wire and pole maintenance.
