Green Choice

With Veteran Energy Green Choice, we’ll purchase renewable energy credits for the electricity you use, so you can make any rate plan 100 percent green.

You don’t have to choose a special rate or commit to a particular term. Green Choice is a monthly service, so you can keep it for however long you like, regardless of the rate plan you choose.

When you help support alternative energy such as wind and solar, you get energy you can feel good about at a price you can feel good about.

What is a renewable energy credit?

A renewable energy credit, or REC, represents one megawatt-hour of electricity that was generated from a renewable energy source.

Purchasing RECs offsets your usage with renewable energy, and it also promotes the continued use of alternative energy sources. RECs generate an income that helps keep renewable energy affordable to compete with traditional fuels.

Is my home using 100 percent green electricity?

All of your power comes from the electric grid, which moves electricity from where it is produced to where it is used, and it isn’t possible to track the different sources once electricity enters the grid.

However, when you choose green energy, you ensure that renewable energy is put into the grid on your behalf for the electricity you use. Your usage will be offset by 100 percent green energy.

Choosing green energy also helps support increased renewable energy production. And the more people choose green energy, the more clean electricity is in the grid for you to draw from.

Do I have to commit to a certain time period for my green energy plan?

No. Green Choice is a month-to-month service, so it’s not tied to the term of your rate plan. You can keep it for as long or as short a time as you like.

If I cancel Green Choice, can I add it back at any time?

Yes. Green Choice is a monthly service, so you can add it back to your account whenever you like.

The Talk Around Texas

Thank you for your service, I have enjoyed it from the first moment I signed up and I regret your service is not available in the new city I am moving to. But if you are ever available in Willis Texas I will come back in a heartbeat.
