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.
