To further support its mission to change the way power is made, Green Mountain Energy Company today launched Pollution FreeSM EV – the first widely available 100 percent emissions-free Texas wind-powered product designed for drivers of plug-in electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV). The company also announced that Green Mountain is the first Texas Retail Electric Provider (REP) to formally partner with eVgo, the nation’s first privately funded, comprehensive electric vehicle infrastructure to provide complete EV home charging and fueling solutions to its subscribers. Green Mountain is the nation’s leading competitive retail provider of cleaner energy.

“We believe that electric vehicles are an excellent choice for drivers who want to make a difference for the environment. And the key to making EVs emissions-free is to charge them with 100 percent renewable energy. Green Mountain created Pollution Free EV, to enable our Texas residential customers to power both their EVs and homes with wind, minimize their emissions, and further the development of renewable energy statewide,” said Helen Brauner, senior vice president of Marketing, Green Mountain Energy Company. “By becoming the first electricity provider in Texas to develop a pollution-free electricity product specifically for EV drivers, we are encouraging and facilitating the early adoption of plug-in electric vehicles, while continuing to change the way power is made.”

As an eVgo customer and Green Mountain’s first Pollution Free EV customer, George Cook, a Katy, Texas homeowner, will become one of the state’s first drivers of a 100 percent emissions-free Texas-wind powered vehicle. eVgo recently installed a Smart Home Charging Dock in the Cook garage. The clean energy to power Cook’s home charging station as well as the rest of his house will be provided by Green Mountain. Additionally, through the network of extremely fast public charging stations eVgo is installing throughout Houston, Mr. Cook will be able to travel with complete range confidence for a single low monthly cost.

“It is totally cool to be one of the first people in Texas to drive a 100 percent wind-powered electric vehicle and to be able to charge it from home through my eVgo charging station,” said Mr. Cook, who has been a Green Mountain customer for over four years. “Now, not only will my house be powered by wind, but my car will be too. Plus, I will save money on gas for my commute to work and continuing to support the development of more wind energy in Texas.”

Pollution FreeSM EV
Pollution Free EV, Green Mountain’s newest 100% pollution-free product generated solely from Texas wind, was created to encourage the use of EVs. It is a Reliable Rate product that guarantees customers who drive an EV a special rate for 12 months. Pollution Free EV is now available to any residential customer in Texas’ competitive electric market, including any existing Green Mountain customer, whose primary vehicle is a plug-in electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. To demonstrate eligibility the customer must provide a valid copy of their auto insurance showing that they currently drive an EV.

eVgo
By becoming the first Texas REP to partner with eVgo, Green Mountain is offering Texas EV drivers the first complete home charging and fueling solution in Texas. When a customer signs up for eVgo’s Complete Solution, they will receive a Smart Home Charging Dock, which enables customers to charge their EV or plug-in hybrid at home:

• It communicates with the grid and turns drivers’ homes into grid-connected smart charging hubs.
• It is covered by a three-year service agreement.
• Its 240 volt AC power provides up to 24 miles of range for every hour it is plugged in. Typical drivers can easily charge their cars overnight at home.
• It is a doorway to a network of charging stations conveniently located across Houston and, in time, the entire Texas Triangle.

“eVgo is focused on building an electric vehicle infrastructure that provides the range confidence needed to enable widespread electric vehicle adoption, help clean the air we breathe and give us greater independence from foreign oil,” said Arun Banskota, President of NRG Energy’s Electric Vehicle Services group that is building the eVgo ecosystem. “We are excited to have Green Mountain be the first REP to officially join eVgo in promoting the adoption of EVs.”

“We are excited to be the first electricity provider in Texas to partner with eVgo and to offer customers a variety of options to fit their needs including a complete home charging and fueling solution for their electric vehicles,” added Brauner. “We want to make driving and charging an EV as easy as possible for customers, while enabling EV drivers to power both their homes and EVs with Texas wind.”
