Where does our energy come from?

Although energy is something that we cannot fathom living without, many of us take it for granted (unless there is power outage or you run out of gas).  As much as we depend on energy, you would be surprised to know that many of us do not realize where our energy comes from.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Texas plays a critical role in America’s domestic energy production.  While Texas is the largest petroleum refiner in the U.S, it also produces more than three times the natural gas than any other state.  Surprisingly, given its history with the oil and gasoline industries, Texas also boasts the second largest number of alternative fuel vehicles on the road today.

Solar and WindRenewable Energy in Texas

Texas excels at producing renewable energy, as well.  According to the 2014 Texas Renewable Energy Report, Texas ranks #1 in the country in both wind capacity and biodiesel production.  Texas also has the largest wind potential and solar energy potential in the country.

Electricity Options

In Texas you have the power to choose your retail electricity provider (REP), and do not need to feel obligated to keep the same REP year after year.  Power To Choose allows you to compare all retail electricity offers in order for you to make a decision that is right for you.  You can compare plans, rates, contract terms, and find out who offers renewable energy options.
