Re: Green Mountain Energy

A "delivery charge" (officially "Transmission and Distribution fee", or "T&D"), is exempt from being credited by the retail electric provider as part of a renewable buy-back plan. T&D costs are imposed by Oncor or other T&D utility (depending on your location), and are passed through from the T&D to your retail provider, who then sends them on to you. Oncor isn't allowed to generate or sell electricity. Consequently, they can't offer credit for something they don't provide.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
On the brighter side, when electrical energy consumption decreases as a result of solar energy equipment and/or conservation measures, the T&D charge also goes down, so there is at least some indirect savings on the T&D fee in that respect.

Called Rhythm..their 1:1 plan has electricity price that is sadly around 6 cents more per kWh than their normal plans, which I think is in ballpark of GM or even more. They do offer buyback in their regular plans but of only the energy charge, not the delivery charge. I don’t know if Green Mountain even offers that.
