Green energy rates

Texas generates the most renewable energy of any state. That means green energy rates are available in every part of the state’s deregulated market.

Texas produces nearly a quarter of the nation’s electricity generation using wind, by far the largest amount of any state. It regularly ranks among the top five states for solar generation as well.

All this means that providers in Texas offer some of the best greet energy rates for customers.

Green energy plans

Every electricity plan in deregulated Texas includes some renewable energy. Plans tell you how much in their Electricity Facts Label. The EFL also includes information about the supply and transmission rates from your utility, term lengths, early termination fees, and more.

Most providers offer additional green energy plans as well, some with 100 percent renewable energy. These plans are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

One thing to remember about Texas is that rates can differ a bit depending on your location. That’s at least in part because of different transmission and delivery utility fees.

FAQs about renewable energy

How much renewable energy does Texas produce?

The amount can vary from month-to-month. But in November 2020, about 27 percent of the electricity generated in the state came from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar.

When I buy a renewable energy plan, does that mean all the electricity that comes to my house is green?

No. The renewable energy produced in the state goes to the electricity grid, along with electricity generated by fossil fuels and nuclear power. However, your provider buys renewable energy credits to offset your actual electricity use. Those credits are used to expand green energy production.

What do I do if there’s a power outage?

Your local utility company delivers power to your home, regardless of your provider. It also repairs and maintains the equipment used in transmission. Contact it in case of an outage.
