In 1997, Green Mountain was founded with the mission to change the way power is made. Over a decade later, we remain 100% committed to this mission. From electricity products made using clean, renewable sources, such as wind, to carbon offset products that help neutralize carbon emissions, every single product offered by our company has an environmental benefit. This makes Green Mountain the leading competitive retail electricity provider in the nation that's dedicated to cleaner energy – a distinction we're quite proud of!
When we look at the numbers, they tell a pretty powerful story: Green Mountain customers are having an impact.
Since our inception, our customers have helped to prevent as much CO2 pollution as the equivalent of:
- Taking more than 1.3 million cars off the road for a year
- Over 624 million households turning off their lights for a week
- Over 688 million trees would absorb in one year
All of our customers together have helped spur the development of over 50 new wind and solar facilities across the nation.
In addition, our customers' demand for clean, renewable energy supports the Green Mountain Energy® Wind Farms–Langford and Elbow Creek. These two West Texas wind farms are jointly capable of producing up to 270 megawatts (MW) – enough to power 220,000 homes.
