Reliant Energy customers! Want to help BikeTexas and offset your carbon footprint at the same time? Reliant and EarthShare of Texas have launched The Reliant EcoShare (SM), a program that allows Reliant customers to support EarthShare of Texas and its participating organizations and help reduce the customers’ carbon footprints through the purchase of carbon offsets.
Here’s how it works: The Reliant EcoShare (SM) program gives customers the option of two pricing levels:
- For a flat monthly cost of $3.95, a $1 donation is made each month to EarthShare of Texas, and 500 pounds of carbon offsets are purchased.
- Or for a flat monthly cost of $5.95, a $2 donation is made each month to EarthShare of Texas, and 1,000 pounds of carbon offsets are purchased.
BikeTexas benefits, because as one of EarthShare of Texas’ participating organizations, a portion of the Reliant donation is shared with us.
Carbon offsets for the Reliant EcoShare (SM) program meet approved standards to ensure that they represent real, verifiable reductions in greenhouse gases.
