ACC Houston Energy Practice Group CLE
Innovative Green Energy Options for Large Electricity Customers in Texas

Companies are increasingly focused upon reducing their carbon footprint while cost-effectively managing their electricity costs. As the energy prices for wind and solar energy have dropped over the last few years, an increasing number of corporations have begun procuring significant renewable resources, both to decarbonize their energy use and to reduce their electricity costs. While many of these contracts have been directly with wind and solar developers, Texas retail energy suppliers are also beginning to respond to this customer demand and create innovative products to provide customers access to the renewable markets while minimizing regulatory and commercial risk. Some companies are also considering large on-site solar installations. This panel discussion will focus upon the options, products and contracting structures available to large electricity customers, especially within ERCOT, and the pros and cons of each structure, including regulatory considerations, ease of contracting and commercial risk.
