Green Mountain Energy Company in Texas has launched Pollution FreeSM EV – the first widely available 100 percent emissions-free Texas wind-powered product designed for drivers of plug-in electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV).
“We believe that electric vehicles are an excellent choice for drivers who want to make a difference for the environment. And the key to making EVs emissions-free is to charge them with 100 percent renewable energy,” said Helen Brauner, senior vice president of Marketing, Green Mountain Energy.
George Cook, a Katy, Texas homeowner, will become one of the state’s first drivers of a 100 percent emissions-free Texas-wind powered vehicle. eVgo recently installed a Smart Home Charging Dock in Cook’s garage. The clean energy to power Cook’s home charging station as well as the rest of his house will be provided by Green Mountain.
Wind-powered LEAF “totally cool” “It is totally cool to be one of the first people in Texas to drive a 100 percent wind-powered electric vehicle and to be able to charge it from home,” said Cook, who has been a Green Mountain customer for four years. “Now, not only will my house be powered by wind, but my car will be too. Plus, I will save money on gas for my commute to work and continue to support the development of more wind energy in Texas.”
Pollution Free EV, Green Mountain’s newest 100% pollution-free product generated solely from Texas wind, was created to encourage the use of EVs. It is a Reliable Rate product that guarantees customers who drive an EV a special rate for 12 months.
Pollution Free EV is now available to any residential customer in Texas’ competitive electric market, including any existing Green Mountain customer, whose primary vehicle is a plug-in electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. To demonstrate eligibility customers must provide a valid copy of their auto insurance showing that they currently drive an EV.
