TXU Energy Launches Free Nighttime Energy Charges

Whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, there’s something new that

can save you money this summer – and all year long. TXU

Energy has launched TXU

Energy Free Nights 24SM, a new electricity plan that

offers customers free nighttime Energy Charges between the hours of 10

p.m. and 6 a.m. every night for two years.

The new plan offers customers a great chance to save by shifting

activities like running the dishwasher, washer and dryer or heavy TV

watching, PC use or interactive gaming to after 10 p.m. Changing

electricity usage patterns like these can bring customers who use the

new plan distinct savings on their electricity bills. By shifting just

10 percent of their electricity use from daytime to nighttime, when

Energy Charges are free, they can save over $200 a year or over $400 by

the end of their two-year contract term.

“We all learned a lot from last summer’s record heat, when the daytime

temperatures were scorching,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing

officer, TXU Energy. “Our customers who shift and save with TXU Energy

Free Nights 24 can generate cost savings for themselves and support the

greater good by removing demand from the Texas power grid during peak

consumption hours. Since the summer ahead is likely to be hotter than

usual, the new plan is a great option to consider as we all watch and

wait for the Texas heat to take hold for the season.”

According to the National

Weather Service’s three-month outlook, above-normal temperatures are

anticipated for summer 2012 – though not as extreme as last summer’s.

Even the most diligent conservationists can see higher bills, since as

much as half

of the energy used in homes goes to powering cooling and heating

systems, which tend to run frequently to constantly during extreme

outdoor temperatures.

In addition to the nighttime savings, TXU Energy Free Nights 24 also

provides a simple rate for energy during the day that won’t increase in

summer or any time of the year and two full years of price protection

against rising power generation costs. Pairing the new plan with the

company’s energy savings

solutions further strengthens customers’ opportunities for cutting

electricity costs as outdoor temperatures rise.

In addition to online and smartphone-enabled solutions like the Brighten

SM iThermostat, energy saving solutions like the TXU

Energy MyEnergy Dashboard SM,

the Brighten

SM Personal Energy Advisor and the company’s app

for iPhone®, TXU Energy also offers tips on energy

efficiency at txu.com/energytips.
