Direct Energy Buzz May 24 Edition

Happy Friday! Are you excited for the long weekend? We certainly are. It’s been a busy week here at Direct Energy! As you make your plans for BBQs and picnics, try to keep the environment in mind. Remember to recycle any empty cans and bottles, and look into featuring local produce and meat on your menu.

On Monday, we explored a few ways to clean up your clothes AND your lifestyle by providing five laundry tips. Hanging clothes on a line is an easy way to save big, but have you ever thought of washing in cold water instead of hot?

Recent events struck a chord with us this week, and on Tuesday, we shared some natural disaster safety tips. If you’d like to help the victims of the tornado in Moore, Okla., consider making a donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting, dialing 1-800-REDCROSS, or texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

We’re also getting ready to Brighten Your Day! Click here for more details about our new #DirectBrightens campaign. The good news continued on Thursday as we officially announced the opening of our Phoenix Area Call Center in Tempe, Arizona.

Today’s Hot Job features a position at the new call center!  If you’re a workforce planning pro, this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Click here to apply!

Now that summer’s about to be in full swing, here’s an energy tip for your A/C.  Get a preseason checkup.  Checking certain components will tell a professional a lot about the working “health” of the unit and ensure that it will make it through the hot, steamy summer.
