Direct Energy Buzz: September 2 edition

Hello September! We’re so glad you’re here! September brings the promise of cooler weather being just around the corner and we think that it can’t get here soon enough.

If you’re just tuning in, welcome to the Direct Energy Buzz where we give you a recap of all the things we’ve been up to during the last week on our Facebook, Twitter and Blog. We’ve been busy bees posting links and updates this past week!

Many of our posts this week were related to Hurricane Irene, which made landfall on the east coast over the weekend. To see the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, check out this compilation of reports from CNN.

We also posted ERCOT‘s request for Texan’s to lower their energy consumption during peak hours, 3-7 p.m. What do you do to lower your energy consumption while at work? Here’s an article for any business owners about cost savings through energy management.

Speaking of work, we have a new Direct Energy Job of the Week! Our Linkedin page has several careers you may be interested in. This week we are featuring an opening for a Midwest Forward Book Manager in Houston, Texas. For more career openings, stop by our career website:
