The North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) has chosen to extend and renew its relationship with Direct Energy Business (DEB) by executing an agreement to purchase both power and Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from DEB.
The purchase of RECs and equivalent quantities of power will be used to partially offset NTMWD's non-renewable power usage. The RECs will support a new solar energy generation facility being developed in Laredo, Texas, Direct Energy Business said
"This is a simplified and cost-effective approach to purchasing a certain portion of our overall electricity needs as renewable energy without the costs and challenges associated with building and operating a solar power facility," said Scott Puckett, Energy Manager for NTMWD.
