Reliant Energy is buying Texas renewable energy certificates (RECs) in order to meet the estimated electricity needs of all of its residential and small-business customers across the state for Earth Day, which is April 22.
The RECs purchased for Reliant customers come from NRG Energy's 150 MW Langford Wind Power Project, located near Abilene, Texas. Reliant is part of NRG Energy.
As an added incentive for customers who want to do more for the environment, Reliant Energy will make a $25 donation to EarthShare of Texas for each customer who signs up for a new 100% wind plan from Reliant Energy from April 18 to April 24.
