Green Mountain Energy plans

Green Mountain Energy offers multiple different energy plans to ensure that each customer can pick the right energy plan for their needs. Remember that not all plans will be available in all locations, so you should enter your ZIP code above to check which ones are offered in your area. Below are a few of Green Mountain Energy’s most popular plans.

Pollution Free e-Plus 12 Preferred

The Pollution Free e-Plus 12 Preferred is a 12-month fixed-rate energy plan, meaning customers can lock in a low rate for an entire year. The electricity in the plan is sourced by wind energy, more than half of which comes from Texas wind farms. The plan enforces a termination fee of $150 if you end your contract early.

Pollution Free e-Plus 24 Preferred

If you like the Pollution Free e-Plus 12 Preferred plan but want to lock in your rate for more than one year, we recommend the Pollution Free e-Plus 24 Preferred. This plan has the same features as the 12-month plan but allows you to secure your rate for two years. The plan requires an early termination fee of $200 if you end your contract before it expires.

Go Local Solar 12 Preferred

The Go Local Solar 12 Preferred plan is a 100 percent renewable energy plan powered entirely by solar energy generated in Texas. Every month, the company sets aside money on the customers’ behalf for the Green Mountain Solar Fund to help pay for solar-related technology, programs, and projects. The plan charges an early termination fee of $150 if you end your contract early.

SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.

How to move or transfer service with Green Mountain Energy

If you’re moving to another location within Green Mountain Energy’s service area, then you can move your electric plan with you. All you have to do is call the provider within two weeks of your move to let them know. The company will take care of all the setup on their end so you can focus on your move. If your current provider does not offer service in your new location, you can switch to another energy provider without paying an early termination fee as long as you submit proof of your changing address.
