Texas-based Green Mountain Energy has applied to enter Arizona’s electricity market, promising to offer residents the option to choose 100% renewable energy for their homes and businesses.
Green Mountain Energy (GME) submitted its application to the Arizona Corporation Commission on Aug. 4 to provide regulated electric services. If approved, GME would become the first and only electricity provider to exclusively offer clean, renewable energy to customers in Arizona, according to the company.
“Arizona customers want to live sustainably across all parts of their lives, including the energy they use at home,” said Mark Parsons, vice president and general manager of Green Mountain. “As more consumers choose to switch to clean energy, they will help increase the supply of renewable energy by growing demand and reducing their carbon footprint.”
GME currently offers commercial products in Oregon, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Residential products are offered in each of those states, in addition to Massachusetts and Maryland.
The company conducted a survey of Arizonans, finding that 84% want the option to purchase green power and energy.
