The affordable "Blue Electricity":
How True Blue works for you:
When you buy electricity through the True Blue Texas Plan, you're asking us to supply electricity from 100% Texas Natural Gas into the Texas Power Grid for every kilowatt–hour you use. As a True Blue customer, you'll continue using electricity from the Texas Power Grid as always. However, Direct Energy will replenish each Kilowatt–hour you use with an equal amount of electricity that's created by a combined–cycle turbine plant using Texas–sourced natural gas.
Direct Energy has purchase and transport agreements with Texas natural–gas suppliers to ensure the corresponding amounts of Texas natural gas are used to offset each Kilowatt–hour of electricity consumed by True Blue Texas Plan customers.

Additionally, natural gas has contributed more than $100 billion to the Texas economy through product sales, royalties and taxes. (IHS Global Insight, 2009)
