Direct Energy Buzz: July 8 Edition

Hello and welcome to Direct Energy Buzz: July 8 Edition, where we give you a quick run down of what we’ve talked about this week on the blog, our Facebook page and on Twitter.

Before we begin, we want to know how did you spend your Fourth of July weekend? Did you grill outside? Did you watch a firework show? Leave us a comment and let us know!

We posted some fun Fourth of July facts on our Facebook and Twitter but in case you missed it, here they are.

Pre-Paid Customers in Texas: This week we started out with a blog post about our pre-paid customers in Texas. They love the the control they have over their electric usage with the Power-To-Go electricity payment plan.

Hurricane Preparedness: We’ve been helping you get ready for hurricane season by helping you create a Disaster Supply Kit. This week we took it a step further so you can include your furriest family members in your Disaster Preparedness Plan. Check it out here.

We also let our volunteer-inclined Cleveland, Ohio friends in on a cool opportunity. Direct Energy and the Sun News are looking to award the second-annual Volunteer of the Year. Be sure to get in your nomination before the July 21st deadline!

Earlier today we shared some pretty cool lamps with you. We especially like the Globe Lamp.

And now for the Direct Energy Job of the Week! This week we are featuring an opening in Houston, Tex. for a Marketing Research Analyst.  Search DER00000023 at for more details.
