Is Local Sun a retail electricity provider (REP)?

No. Local Sun is a clean power producer that offers customers renewable energy direct from our local solar projects at low prices. To deliver the power we generate to our customers at affordable rates, we've partnered with MP2 Energy, a Shell Energy North America subsidiary. MP2 Energy is a licensed retail electricity provider (REP) and provides functions such as electricity billing and customer service.

Where do my dollars go?

We aim to provide our customers with the cleanest power at the lowest possible cost, so we maintain a lean operation that prioritizes projects over promotion. 100% of our profits are reinvested in local clean energy projects that reduce the cost of electricity, add value to communities, and support the environment. 

What is aggregation?

Electricity aggregation is the process in which people come together to buy energy at scale for savings. Local Sun customers benefit from this process to get better rates on electricity service from MP2 Energy and accelerate demand for renewable energy in Texas. The more people that join, the more local solar projects we can build to serve you. 

Can I see where my power is generated?

Yes. We love giving tours of our solar project in Sealy, TX and welcome you to visit. Once you arrive, a member of our team will walk you through the 15,000 solar panels and provide a detailed description of how we get your power from the farm to the market to your home or business. Tours are by appointment and free of charge. Contact us to schedule a visit.

Once on MP2 Energy's enrollment site, you will enter your zip code to view plan offers specific to your location, as rates vary slightly by location based on your transmission and delivery provider.

How am I billed?

MP2 Energy charges you for the electricity you consume at your home with autopay paperless billing. You will receive monthly statements from MP2 Energy which itemize the amount of energy you used each month, the price you paid, and the delivery charges associated from your TDU provider.

Are there hidden fees?
