Our Texas Breeze Plans are backed by 100% Texas wind. These electricity plans utilize wind farms across the Lone Star State to feed clean energy into the grid.
Wind energy (or wind power) describes the process of using wind to generate electricity. Wind turbines work on a simple principle: instead of using electricity to make wind—like a fan—wind turbines use wind to make electricity. Wind turns the propeller-like blades of a turbine around a rotor, which spins a generator, which creates electricity.
Wind is a renewable and clean energy source, with lots of perks. Using wind to produce energy means fewer effects on the environment, a reduction in the amount of electricity generation from fossil fuels, lower total air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. Plus, wind is a big job creator in Texas. Roughly 120,000 people nationwide are employed in the industry.
The possibility of a blackout is an electricity grid capacity issue, affecting everyone—no matter the energy source. The electricity grid is comprised of many sources of power generation (coal, natural gas, nuclear, wind, solar), so if any of those resources do not deliver the forecasted power needed for everyone, then the grid supply could be less than customer demand (the power you need to keep your lights on).
This could result in potential blackouts. Most of the time, the shortfall in supply is driven by traditional power plants being offline (whether scheduled or unscheduled) during critical times. However, there are some ways to protect yourself from risk through renewable means. For example, if you were to install rooftop solar panels, and were able to store that power through batteries, you could actually use that stored power in times of blackouts (kind of like having gas powered generator backup, but this would be the cleaner way).
Switching to renewable energy has a lot of benefits.
When you go green, you’re helping reduce CO2 emissions and combat climate change with your choice, contributing to a cleaner planet.
With solar, wind, or hydro, you are also choosing an energy source that won’t run out. That means you are reducing our reliance on dirty fossil fuels.
There is economic benefit too. The growth in renewable-energy sources means more new jobs will be created for people to build facilities.
No, Rhythm Energy will not buy excess solar electricity on this plan, but we are proud to offer best-in-class plans specifically built for solar buyback. In 2021, we were the fastest growing retailer for rooftop solar home owners, and are happy to serve our solar customers with plans that are unrivaled in the industry.
