If you use 2,000 kWh of electricity each month, switching to solar energy means you'll have avoided 3,125 pounds of CO₂. That's the same as...
The CO₂ emissions from 159 gallons of gasoline consumed, enough for 5 trips from Houston to El Paso.
The CO₂ absorbed by 1.8 acres of trees. That’s the same size as 28 tennis courts.
It only takes 60 seconds to make an impact. Enter in your zip code and energy usage and pick an electricity plan that's best for you.
Your 100% solar plan requires no visits from technicians or installation of equipment or panels.
Sit back and relax, because we'll handle it all, and we'll even pay up to $150 in bill credits to put toward your current provider's early termination fee.
From the deserts and bayous to football and BBQs, there’s no place like Texas. And there’s no better feeling than doing your part to sustain it.
With the Texas Shine Plan, you’re ensuring a cleaner tomorrow. You're helping preserve the beauty of Texas for generations to come. And we're all about it.
Solar energy (or solar power) refers to the set of technologies that convert the light and heat of the sun into electricity. There are two kinds of solar technologies:
Solar Photovoltaic (or PV) is the technology you are probably most familiar with because it is used in solar panels, like the ones you might see on a neighbor’s home. When the sun hits the solar panels, semiconductors are used to convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. This electricity flows to an inverter, which coverts that DC energy into alternating current (AC), the most used form of electricity.
Concentrating Solar-Thermal Power (or CSP) systems use mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto receivers. These receivers collect that solar energy and convert it into heat. This heat can be used to create electricity, or it can be stored. CSP systems are primarily in very large power plants.
Solar energy does not emit greenhouse gases, helps reduce the cost of electricity, contributes to a resilient electrical grid, creates jobs and spurs economic growth. And solar can also generate back-up power for nighttime and outages when paired with storage.
With Rhythm’s TX Shine Plan, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in Texas’ solar boom – no panels required. It is an easy way to go solar, reduce your carbon footprint, and support a brighter Texas.
