DID YOU KNOW?
In Texas, state regulations allow millions of people to select their electricity provider.
Although costs of solar and wind power are at record lows and continue to decline, Texans with less disposable income often pay more for electricity and have limited access to green energy and emergency back up power.
The goal of Powered For Good is to design and help deliver clean, affordable, 100% renewable electricity offerings for low income households in Texas's Competitive Retail Areas, where households can choose their electricity provider.
We are also exploring options to provide energy storage at a household or community level and how to best to monetize Opportunity Zone tax benefits in a way that maximizes community benefit.
