    Half of Houston's energy to come from renewables wind solar Department of Energy Reliant Energy

    The city of Houston signed an agreement with Reliant Energy to purchase more than 140 MW of wind energy output over the next two years.

    The purchase of renewable credits will account for half of the city’s annual electricity demand and will run from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2015. The city was also designated by the U.S. Department of Energy as one of its Solar America Cities.

    “Houston is already known as the energy capital of the world, but we are committed to becoming the alternative energy capital of the world as well,” said Mayor Annise Parker. “Purchasing green power reduces the environmental impacts of electricity use, decreases the cost of renewable power over time and supports the development of new renewable generation. A triple win for Houstonians.”
