Green wind energy is available for free now, but only to residents living in New York and Texas. The rest of us have to wait until our state deregulates energy. Until then we have to pretend to be happy with energy monopolies.

Because these two states deregulated, consumers living there now have the power to choose where to buy their electricity and what kind of power to buy.. and that includes electricity made from 100% wind power.

 When you're looking for an environmentally friendly green energy/electricity provider, look for the Green-e logo. Some companies don't have it.

Look for it when you compare energy providers in deregulated states such as Texas, Illinois and New York, where you can choose your own green energy provider.  Lucky you, everyone else is stuck with their monopolistic utility provider.. but hopefully not for long.

Deregulation of electricity and natural gas is coming, and a tidal wave of change is coming with it. There is only one deregulation of energy, just like there was only one deregulation of telecom years ago. Many millionaires were made back then. The same will be true with this huge market change and paradigm changing event.

Great Rates On Electricity!


Consumers should benefit all the way around with more choices. When you switch your regular electricity service to an alternative provider, nothing will change except that the size of your regular energy bill should go down, with savings between 4% to 28%. There is no cost to switch. No contracts are required. You can switch back at no cost if you are not satisfied.


Go Green!

I would recommend looking for a Certified Green Energy Plan that provides clean, green renewable electricity service that's Green-e certified to reduce the environmental impact of the energy you use.

Bottom line, your green energy will come from green, clean 100% renewable power source, produced by a major, very reliable energy supplier, using wind, solar or water power.

I would also recommend looking for the Green-e logo. It is the nationally recognized symbol for certified renewable energy. Green-e is the nation's leading independent certification and verification program for renewable energy and companies that use renewable energy.

Incredible Rewards!


Alternative energy customers who choose the right energy provider can earn rewards points each month that can be redeemed for incredible travel packages, including a cruise to the Bahamas or an all-inclusive Mexican getaway. Customers receive 1 Reward Point for every kWh of electricity they use each month.

Free Gift!


Some energy providers offer a free gift just for signing up.

There is a Certified Green Energy Plan available to
New York and Texas
customers at a highly competitive variable monthly rate.

Satisfaction Guaranteed!


If you are not happy with the lower price, excellent service and quality of customer care you receive, just ask to switch back and it will be done.




There is no complicated paperwork to start saving money. Simply complete a short online order form and an energy company will take care of the rest.

Security & Reliability

Nothing will change in the way your service is delivered. You will not notice any difference in how your energy arrives at your residence.


Your regular utility company will still send your energy bills to your home. They will also be responsible for getting power to your home. They will restore power in the case of any outage. That part will not change.


The new addition is that wholesale green energy producers such as Shell Energy, (it has invested over 1 Billion in renewable energy) are now working with new energy selling retailers to provide choices for residential energy consumers.

Retail energy providers have been separated out from the utility companies that provide basic services such as power transmission wires, energy billing, and emergency power restoration services. 

Just like the deregulated Internet, a new freedom and power is coming.. This freedom of choice for energy allows consumers to pick and choose who provides their power, just as easily as they choose who provides their Internet service.

The company that sells a residence their energy can be located anywhere in the US, just like Internet service can be sold from anywhere in the US. Today, the energy delivered to a typical home can be generated anywhere in the US, and then delivered to a residence anywhere in the US, right? After all, the US is connected in a huge electric grid, just like the Internet, right?

This basic deregulation movement started a few years ago, and is now spreading across the country. As each state deregulates their energy and frees consumers to choose, energy retailers are growing fast.  

In this new deregulated environment, some businesses thrive, and others fade away. The new model of how things will be are evident in deregulated states such as Illinois, New York and Texas.

Would you like to see what happens in real life when a state deregulates? Especially if you are located in a state that is deregulated, you owe it to yourself to check out the options.

In summary, retail energy providers in deregulated states offer more choices, such as;

1. a 100% green, ZERO CARBON energy source.

2. lower prices on the same power, averaging savings of 4-28%. 

3. more incentives, such as travel rewards for using power.

4. gifts for signing up, such as a free vacation to exotic destinations

5. referral rewards

6. dedicated customer service consultants (much like the good old days, when you had a gas station attendant servicing your oil and washing your windshield)

7. Satisfaction guaranteed, or you get to switch back
