NextEra Energy Services follows the simple statement it makes on its website. “Payless for electricity” NextEra is a subsidiary of parent company, NextEra Resources. The company began in 2010 and operates in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., New Jersey and Delaware. NextEra Energy Services offers fixed rate contracts to protect the customer from future price raises.

The main appeal of this provider is for those in search of green energy for their electricity needs. The retail companies association with its parent company, NextEra Resources, gives its customers access to the largest generator of wind and sun renewable energy in North America. NextEra Resources has 85 wind facilities within 17 different states that produce enough electrical energy to power 2 million average households. And when it comes to solar power, they cannot get any better than co-owning the largest solar field which is located in the Mojave Desert in California.

Keep in mind that a green electricity plan is often times a virtual plan as you will likely not be using wind power in certain parts of the electric grid. In this situation NextEra likely uses renewable energy credits from their wind resources in other parts of the grid to visualize your green plan. In this situation some part of the state is cleaner for the energy produced there but if all you have in your area of the grid is coal power then you will still be getting coal power delivered over the electric lines to your house.
