Whether youre a night owl or an early bird, theres 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 summers 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 Services three-month outlook, above-normal temperatures are
anticipated for summer 2012 though not as extreme as last summers.
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
In addition to the nighttime savings, TXU Energy Free Nights 24 also
provides a simple rate for energy during the day that wont 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
companys 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,
SM Personal Energy Advisor and the companys app
for iPhone®, TXU Energy also offers tips on energy
efficiency at txu.com/energytips.
