What is green energy?
Green energy, also known as renewable energy, is power that is generated from eco-friendly resources such as solar, wind and water. Customers can select electric plans that contain a mix of green and non-green sources or plans that are up to 100-percent green. These plans often come with a "green premium." To understand what green premium is currently being charged on electric plans, please refer to the CenterPoint Energy Electric Price Index.
