Through the partnership, Green Mountain also provides additional energy solutions to TPWD, including 100 percent renewable energy to all of TPWD’s facilities in deregulated service areas and energy management software for facilities across the state.
The solar array on top of Sea Center’s aquarium building is supported by Green Mountain’s SolarSPARC program, a plan sourced from 100% solar power and which directs a portion of customer payments to build new solar generation not sited at the customer's premises (and which provides customers with rebates from such installations)
The partnership between Green Mountain Energy and TPWD were completed in collaboration with Texas Energy Aggregators.
Under the partnership with Green Mountain, Texas Parks and Wildlife is also implementing a Lucid BuildingOS Energy Management System Pilot test, which is expected to be complete in early 2017. The system will evaluate the energy use of 100 TPWD electric utility meters from Smart Meter Texas and provide advanced usage data so TPWD can optimize the performance and efficiency of their buildings.
