Oncor in Texas focuses on the environment
This utility is committed to helping Texas become more energy efficient. Oncor’s electric delivery and transmission service operates with the help of distributed generation, or the interconnection of electrical generating facilities located at points of delivery. To put it simply, Oncor employs electricity that comes from a variety of customer-owned sources that are then distributed around the electrical grid. Each facility has a capacity of 10 megawatts or less, and connects with voltage less than 60 kilovolts.
With distributed generation, renewable energy generation such as wind and solar is incentivized, creating less carbon-creating generation facilities throughout Texas. Specifically, the Oncor 2016 Solar Photovoltaic Program offsets initial barriers to entry and allows customers to sell back energy generated at points of delivery.
