Re: Green energy
In short, you can keep your penny per kWh and subscribe to Green
Mountain's Pollution-Free plan.
I too have been frustrated by GME's small, grass roots campaign
lack of mass marketing.
GME offers two plans: 1) Pollution-Free (10% Wind, 90% Hydro) and 2)
100% Wind. The Pollution-Free plan is the same price as Reliant's
regular price (the price-to-beat). Or you can choose the 100% Wind
plan. It is one penny more per kWh over Reliant's price-to-beat. That
amounts to $10 more per month based on 1,000 kWh consumption for the
100% Wind plan ($.01 * 1,000 kWh = $10).
CenterPoint (separate from Reliant) reads your meter and maintains
the grid regardless of which electric utility retailer you choose. So
reliability is the same and is guaranteed by the Public Utility
Commission of Texas.

GME Pollution-Free price is the exact same as Reli
based plan (price-to-beat) and one penny less per kHw than
Prices as of 5/4/05:
Reliant Energy Price to beat $.1220/kWh
Green Mountain Pollution-Free $.1219/kWh
Green Mountain 100% Wind $.1319/kWh
Reliant Energy Renewable Plan $.1320/kWh
Like I said earlier, if you decide to switch please help a brother
out and go through me. I get a modest commission for each person that
switches. You can either call me, email me or use this link to switch:
