Announcing Support Green from Direct Energy: a New Way to Choose Renewable Energy

SupportGreenLargeIt’s good to be green in Texas these days. The Lone Star State continues to be a national leader in renewable energy generation; in fact, it’s the nation’s biggest producer of wind energy and biodiesel production, while the state continues expansion of its solar capacity. Also, when given the option, more and more Texans are choosing to use green energy to power their homes in greater numbers. Thus, with this increased interest in renewable energy, Direct Energy is excited to bring expanded energy choice to its Texas customers with Support Green!

Support Green gives you the option to encourage the continued growth of renewable energy on the Texas electricity grid while keeping your regular (non-renewable) electricity plan. For only $5.00 a bill, Direct Energy will purchase 1 Renewable Energy Credit (REC) on your behalf, which is equivalent to offsetting of 1,000 kWh of non-renewable energy usage.

When you choose Support Green, you are shrinking your carbon footprint while helping Direct Energy promote clean, renewable energy from green sources. With your $5.00 purchase on each bill, you’re helping grow how much green energy Texas produces, and since this increases the readiness of green energy, it benefits both future generations and the environment.

If you’re already a Direct Energy customer, you can choose to Support Green by logging into your Online Account Manager and clicking the “Support Green” link in the top navigation bar. If you’re not a Direct Energy customer but want to make a difference in your world, you can opt to Support Green when placing your online order.

Thanks for helping Direct Energy support the development of renewable energy in Texas!
