TXU Energy Encourages Conservation with MyEnergy Makeover Sweepstakes

Understanding how you’re using electricity at home can be easy and can

save you money. It can also mean chances to win cash for electricity

bills and new energy-efficient appliances and a shot at a home energy

makeover, thanks to TXU

Energy. Now through Sept. 4, the company’s new MyEnergy

Makeover Sweepstakes is offering daily entries to people across

Texas and to its customers who use the TXU

Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM, the free energy savings

solution provided automatically to them online via TXU

Energy MyAccount.

Through the end of the promotion, TXU Energy is providing its dashboard

users and other Texas

electricity customers daily chances to win $150 and weekly chances

to win $1,000 for ENERGY STAR® appliances. And the grand

prize is up to $8,000 for a home energy makeover. Each daily entry

counts as a chance toward winning the daily and weekly prizes as well as

the grand prize, which will be announced in the fall.

Since having consumption details in advance can inspire consumers to use

less electricity, tools like the TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard can help

customers reduce their electricity bills. All TXU Energy customers can

access the tool online through the same

place they can check and pay their bills, see their plan details and

more. The dashboard shows them their whole home’s electricity usage and

costs with local weather data and personalized charts and graphs that

make it easy to understand their energy habits – and how those habits

relate to their monthly consumption and costs.

The TXU Energy sweepstakes is open to Texas residents who are 18 or

older. A multiple choice question will be posted each day on txu.com/myenergymakeover,

and participants can answer it by checking their dashboard. The

sweepstakes also offers alternative entry methods for Texans served by

other providers. Alternative entry methods, full sweepstakes rules and

details are available on the sweepstakes

home page. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.

Thanks to the broad deployment

of smart meters across Texas, more than 1.2 million of the company’s

customers can use the dashboard to see how much electricity they’re

using and what it’s costing them, down to the hour. And, whether they

have smart meters or not, TXU Energy customers can enter the sweepstakes

and access the dashboard through any Web-enabled PC or tablet device,

and key features are also available through the free TXU

Energy iPhone® and AndroidTM apps.

“When you see your electricity usage through the TXU Energy MyEnergy

Dashboard,” said Jennifer Pulliam, director of innovation, TXU Energy,

“you understand how the weather and your habits at home are affecting

your consumption and what that costs you. And, since you can access it

through the devices you already use day to day, you can experience that

on your terms. Our new sweepstakes is our way of rewarding our customers

for taking an interest in energy efficiency and simply clicking a link

that’s always there for them, regardless. While you can’t control the

weather, you can control your consumption, and that’s just what the

dashboard helps you understand.”

Thanks to the energy efficiency gains the dashboard offers, Texas

electricity customers can also leverage the tool to compete in

promotions like the Biggest

Energy Saver. Sponsored by Grid21, the promotions are a nationwide

initiative to increase energy awareness and encourage smarter, more

efficient usage by Americans. This year, the promotions’ prizes include

gift checks and household appliances with a combined total value of more

than $55,000.

About the TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard

The TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard is one of a number of energy savings

solutions the company provides to encourage energy efficiency. It helps

customers understand their electricity consumption and costs by

providing a forecast of their usage and costs at any point of a billing

cycle, with graphs that show how the outdoor temperature relates to the

whole home’s electricity usage and cost by month, day and even hour if

they have a smart meter. It compares the home’s electricity usage to

similar homes in the same ZIP code and includes a pie chart that breaks

down usage between cooling, appliances, electronics and more. It’s

available through any Web-enabled PC or tablet device, and key features

are also available through the free TXU Energy free


and AndroidTM apps.

In addition to the company’s energy

savings solutions, like the dashboard, TXU Energy also offers tips

on energy efficiency at txu.com/energytips.
