Choose Energy, Inc., the leading online energy platform dedicated to assisting Texas residents minimize, understand and compare their energy supply options, is pleased to announce the “Greenest Texas City of 2012”. Using the company’s proprietary data analytics platform, Choose Energy can see real-time consumer electricity choice trends. With this data, the company has aggregated select enrollment statistics from 2012 and has some rewarding insights into which Texas city has the “greenest” population.

And the winner is… Houston! Those Houston residents that used ChoosEnergy.com to select a green supplier are expected to consume 44.0M KWH of green electricity, saving almost 275,000 tons of CO2 emissions.

The residents of Houston can choose from many retail energy providers, but an overwhelming number of these residents have visited ChooseEnergy.com to simplify the search process and select an environmentally-friendly energy supply option. The ChooseEnergy.com Energy Comparison Platform lets consumers quickly and effectively search through competing offers for the most competitive electricity rate in Texas. By simply entering a valid zip code, ChooseEnergy.com will automatically generate up-to-date, comprehensive information regarding the different Texas electricity providers and their lowest rates. Customers enter their information directly on the site, making the process of switching providers faster.

The Choose Energy platform offers a variety of plan selection options for the Texas consumer, allowing the resident to choose variable or fixed length contracts, traditional or green generation supply, or prepay options. Despite these many options, the people of Houston have overwhelmingly chosen the green electricity plans available to them, utilizing the ChooseEnergy.com site to select renewable electricity plans from one of the four prominent REPs that provide green electricity in their area. The four green electricity REPs currently serving the Houston area are:

a)    Green Mountain Energy: “Pollution e+ Smart” plans
b)    Amigo Energy: “Green Energy Program”
c)    TXU “Texas Choice 100% Wind”
d)    Cirro Energy “Smart Lock 100% Wind”

The Green Mountain electricity plans are especially popular but customers must be willing to sign up for the earth friendly and tree-saving e-bill option.

Choose Energy is defining a “green” consumer as a residential consumer that has used the Choose Energy shopping platform to select a renewable electricity supply plan offered by a retail electricity provider, or REP. The company has performed an analysis on a per capita basis to determine which city has the highest per capita renewable energy-supplied population.

According to Jerry Dyess, CEO of Choose Energy, Inc.: “I am pleased to announce that Houston consumers are using their power to choose an electricity supplier as both a statement to improve the environment and reduce their electricity bill!”

ChooseEnergy.com is not an energy company, but instead a site that allows consumers to shop and compare Texas electricity rates from some of the top energy companies in the State. Through extensive research and testing, the company has established itself as a vital tool in giving Texas consumers the power to choose their energy provider by offering innovative options through its Energy Comparison Platform.
