(AUSTIN – January 8, 2016) TXU Energy announced a new electricity plan this week, giving its customers the option to power their homes with 100 percent local solar. The innovative offering is the market’s first electricity plan entirely comprised of Texas solar power.

“The cost of solar has dropped a whopping 82% over the past five years, and with this program TXU is allowing its customers to reap the benefits. This innovative, new solar plan will not only spur our state’s clean energy economy and create local jobs, but also move Texas toward a less costly, safer, and healthier energy future.”
