The first-ever J.D. Power and Associates Study of the Texas residential electricity market measured Customer Satisfaction among Texas REPs by examining four key categories: Customer Service, Price, Billing & Payment and Communications.

Green Mountain scored the highest in Overall Residential Customer Satisfaction and was rated 78 points higher than the study average for Texas REPs.

“Receiving this J.D. Power and Associates award reinforces what our customers have told us over and over again: Green Mountain Energy Company has the greatest brand and most satisfied customers in Texas,” said Paul Markovich, senior vice president of Residential Sales for Green Mountain Energy Company. “This award is a demonstration of just how much Green Mountain values our community of customers – it’s something that clearly sets us apart from other retail electric providers in Texas.”

The company has been serving Texas residential and business customers for seven years with electricity products that are significantly cleaner than typical system power in Texas.
