Energy Savings & Tips
Posted On: March 2, 2011 | By: Samantha Davis
An option for every electric customer in the states that Stream Energy sells electricity is to self-generate. This is generally done by having a wind generator (windmill) or solar photovoltaic panels installed on the residential premise.
In the State of Texas, the law allows for self-generation. The homeowner who wants to install self-generation must contact his or her transmission/distribution service provider (TDSP) and request a distributed renewable generation (DRG) meter. This meter is actually two directional meters built into a single device.
