Green Mountain Energy Company and the Home Builders Association of Greater Dallas (HBA Dallas) have again joined forces for the 16th annual Parade of Homes™, which will showcase upscale, high performance and environmentally-friendly custom homes at Shaddock Creek Estates in Frisco, Texas. This year’s event will take place Saturday, May 19, through Sunday, June 10.

This marks the third year for Green Mountain Energy Company to serve as the title partner for the Parade of Homes event. As part of its partnership with the event, Green Mountain is offsetting the Parade of Homes’ electricity-related carbon dioxide (C02) emissions to make the event carbon neutral. Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, has been identified as a major cause of global climate change.

The Parade of Homes is an open house event, where area builders get to present the very latest innovations and building technologies directly to the public. Each home will feature state-of-the-art amenities and luxurious decor. Discount tickets will be available at Tom Thumb stores throughout the metroplex.

"The Home Builders Association of Greater Dallas is very proud and excited to continue its working relationship with Green Mountain, promoting clean electricity for this year's Parade," said Bob Morris, executive vice president of HBA Dallas. "Since there is an ever-growing interest and demand from homebuyers for environmentally-preferable products and services, Green Mountain, and the pollution-free electricity products it offers to residential customers in Texas, is a great addition to the Parade of Homes."

Green Mountain Energy Company and the HBA are offering attendees some new attractions during this year’s Parade of Homes. (Editor’s Note: A list and schedule of the events is at the end of the release.) First, the participating homes will be either meeting or exceeding the rigorous green building standards in advance of Frisco’s full city-wide enforcement in the summer of 2007. Second, Green Mountain will make a presentation about the environmental benefits of clean electricity on the demonstration stage. Green Mountain representatives will also be available at the Parade site to answer questions about, and sign up people for, competitively-priced Pollution Freesm electricity.

"Green Mountain is sponsoring the Parade of Homes and offsetting the carbon emissions associated with the event’s electricity usage to educate homebuyers and event attendees about the benefits of pollution-free electricity,” said Paul Markovich, senior vice president, Residential Sales, Green Mountain Energy Company. “We are pleased to partner with a great organization like the Home Builders Association of Greater Dallas, especially since these homes are built to green building standards.”

This year's Parade will feature homes from George Fuller Custom Homes; Hensley Premier Builders LLC; K.C. Custom Homes, LTD.; Pruitt - Balthazar Custom Homes; Quantum’s Elite Homes; Riviera Custom Homes LLC; Sotherby Homes; Sterling Homes by Jim Johnson.

About Green Mountain Energy Company
Austin, Texas-based Green Mountain (greenmountain.com) is the nation’s leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offset solutions. The company began in 1997 with a simple idea: “to change the way power is made”. The company entered the renewable electricity market with the belief that if given a choice, consumers will choose cleaner electricity products using renewable sources such as wind, solar, water, geothermal, and biomass, over electricity made from polluting fossil fuels. These cleaner energy sources help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted into the air. Since 1999, Green Mountain customers have collectively helped avoid over 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions and have been responsible for helping to deliver more than six billion kilowatt-hours of renewable energy into the market. Additionally, Green Mountain’s customers have helped spur the development of 13 new wind and solar facilities across the nation, which are producing pollution-free power.
