Go Local Solar plan — Tap into 100% Texas solar energy. No installation required.
We’re bringing you a plan that lets you protect the planet in big ways — all while staying local. With the Go Local Solar plan, you can tap into 100% solar electricity from solar parks right here in Texas. Whether you own your home or rent, you can use the sun for good with no roof required and zero up-front costs.
As a bonus, we’ll set aside money each month on your behalf for the Green Mountain solar fund, created to help pay for a variety of projects, programs and solar-related technologies. Because growing solar power in Texas means a brighter planet.
How the Go Local Solar plan works.
When you sign up for the Go Local Solar plan, we purchase renewable energy certificates from solar parks in Texas. At times when the sun isn’t shining, like during cloudy days and at night, we continue to power your home using electricity from the grid. We then purchase additional renewable energy certificates from solar parks in Texas to match your energy usage on this plan.
If the solar parks produce less energy than expected, we’ll purchase additional Texas solar renewable energy certificates to match your usage. This guarantees that there will be solar energy produced locally to match the electricity usage of your home.
A solar park is a location that hosts a network of solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity that is fed into the grid. Green Mountain purchases renewable energy certificates from solar parks operated by third-parties to meet the energy needs of our customers enrolled in this plan.
See where two of the solar parks are located:
These solar parks are registered with ERCOT and the PUCT as Bovine Solar, LLC and Yellow Jacket Solar, LLC. For our use, Bovine Solar, LLC is branded as Green Mountain Energy Gable Solar Park and Yellow Jacket Solar, LLC is branded as Green Mountain Energy Dakota Solar Park.
