Green electricity in Houston

Texas generates the most electricity from wind than any other state in the country, and that capacity continues to grow. The Lone Star State is also a leader in solar energy, consistently ranking in the top five states each month. This means that if you are a Houston resident, there are plenty of green energy options in your area.

Every Texas energy plan contains some percentage of renewable energy. You can check for the exact amount on your plan’s Electricity Facts Label.

But you can also take your desire to go green further. Some providers sell only 100 percent green energy plans, including Gexa Energy, Iberdrola Texas, Chariot Energy, and Green Mountain Energy.
