Make an Impact, the GreenChoice Wind Fan Way

Austin Energy GreenChoice customers who support 100% Texas wind energy may be the most dedicated wind fans around, and they are making a huge impact. 

In 2016, GreenChoice customers invested in more than 719 million kWh of Texas wind as an alternative to fossil fuels. This translates into: 

  • Removing the same amount of carbon from the air as more than 11 million trees. 
  • Removing carbon emissions equal to more than 82,000 cars. 
  • Powering 60,000 homes a year with wind energy instead of fossil fuels (based on 1000 kWh/month). 
  • Avoiding more than 430,000 metric tons of carbon emissions. 

GreenChoice customers help Austin Energy: 

  • Rely less on fossil fuels.
  • Reduce air pollution.
  • Decrease water usage.
  • Grow green Texas jobs.
