Inspire Energy Service Area
Inspire Energy supplies electricity from 100% renewable sources to the following states:

Inspire Energy Plans
At this time, Inspire Energy only offers variable rate plans. Variable rate plans are generally not a good idea with alternative suppliers, because prices are not regulated and are subject to increase more than your local utility's rates.

Customer Reviews for Inspire Energy
As a fairly new company, not much customer feedback is available yet. However, consumers do report that they appreciate the availability of green energy options with Inspire Energy. The Better Business Bureau gave Inspire Energy an A rating (as of February, 2016) for responding well to customer complaints.
However, as Inspire Energy only offers variable rate plans, consumers report that rates are subject to change drastically from one month to the next in comparison to their local utility.

Green Energy Sources
Inspire Energy purchases Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for electricity generated from 100% renewable wind energy. Though customers may not consume green energy directly in their homes, purchasing RECs ensures that renewable energy is generated in the United States. For customers on 100% renewable energy plans, your energy consumption is matched 100% by RECs purchased on your behalf.
RECs sold by Inspire Energy support wind energy projects and generation in states across the east coast and midwest, including Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
