Green Mountain Energy began in 1997 with a simple goal: to change the way power is made. We remain committed to that mission today.
It’s a milestone moment as we announce SolarSPARC™ (Smart People Accelerating Renewable Change), a breakthrough product that will make it easier than ever before for Texas residents to use and benefit from solar energy.
SolarSPARC is the first 100% solar product offered in Texas. If that were the only news, it would be a big deal. But wait, there’s more: Customers who sign up for SolarSPARC will also be supporting the development of new solar in Texas AND receive annual bill credits for the solar facilities they help fund.
This innovative concept will allow SolarSPARC customers to truly pioneer the growth of solar energy projects in Texas.
“The more customers that sign up for the product, the more solar we’ll be able to build,” Shay Ohrel, product innovation manager at Green Mountain Energy Company, said. “We think Texas can be just as well known for solar as it is for wind, and with this product we’re giving customers a new way to drive local development and tap into Texas’s potential to be a solar power house.”
