Renewable Energy Pays with TXU Energy

TXU Energy Distributed Renewable Generation (DRG) supports your efforts to use more renewable energy. We appreciate your commitment to the environment by installing a DRG system such as a solar panel or wind turbine at your residence, and we will buy surplus electricity, known as "outflow", generated by your renewable energy equipment.

Getting Started
Below are a few steps to take in order to start receiving your surplus payment. Payment will start once ALL steps are completed.

  • Submit an Interconnection Agreement to your TDU (Transmission and Distribution Utility) before installation of your DRG system. The Interconnection Agreement is available to download at your TDU's Web site.
  • Request that your TDU change out your current meter to a meter that records the "inflow" and "outflow" of electricity.
  • Request that your TDU change your "Load profile" at ERCOT to a "DRG profile".
