Sources of Electricity – Does It Affect My Alamo Electricity Rate?
Electricity in Alamo comes from all over Texas. The Texas electric grid is the largest independent grid in the U.S. Texas is the only state in the country with its own electric grid with little connection with the other main power grids in North America.
As a result of this all electricity used in Alamo is produced within the state.
Due to a large investment in infrastructure over last decade, the abundant wind energy generated in west Texas can be transmitted all over the state to meet demand. No other state has the amount of wind energy capacity Texas has.
A small percentage of the power consumed in Texas comes from nuclear power. This percentage is very unlikely to increase any time in the foreseeable future. The economics just don’t favor nuclear power in Texas.
Despite the impressive growth of renewable energy Texas, coal and natural gas still provide most electricity in Alamo and elsewhere in Texas. It is cheap natural gas that has helped maintain cheap electricity rates in Alamo for several years.
