Renewable energy plans are sourced with electricity from utility-scale renewable energy generation facilities. In Texas, wind and solar power are the dominant sources of renewable “green” energy.
Increased generation of renewable energy will bring about a reduction of CO2 pollution that enters the Earth’s atmosphere every second of every day. Enrolling in a 100% renewable energy plan will help rid the grid of the pollutants causing climate disruption, and “green” plans can cost you less than the fossil-sourced plan you may be currently enrolled in. Why pay more to pollute?
Wind power is generated using wind turbines. Huge propellers are turned by wind, and the blade’s rotor connects to a mechanical shaft which spins a generator, creating electricity. The electricity enters the Texas electricity grid and is transmitted through the utility lines, which are managed by TDUs, and delivered to your residential and business customers.
Solar panels, located at large solar farms in Texas, absorb sunlight with photovoltaic cells and inverters are used to convert the energy to a usable alternating current, which is delivered to the electric grid and then to homes and businesses. Due to the economies of scale realized by utility-scale solar farms, green energy can be produced much more efficiently than with solar rooftop panels (less than 1% of Texas homes use rooftop panels), and green energy from the grid is now competitive with fossil-sourced energy.
