Announcing the Direct Energy Comfort & Control Plans – Complete with a Nest Learning Thermostat!

Direct Energy is excited to present the Comfort & Control 24 and 36 for New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois! Residents of those 5 wonderful states can now choose either a 2- or 3-year fixed-rate electricity plan that includes the Nest Learning Thermostat at no additional cost (a $249 value).

When you lock in your energy rate with Direct Energy, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing the price you pay per kWh of electricity used won’t change for your entire contract term. And with Nest technology – including features like Auto-Away, Airwave, Leaf, and Energy Reports – you can save up to 20% off your energy usage.

Back in February 2014, we announced the launch of our inaugural Comfort & Control Plan, a 5-year dual fuel offering that included the Nest Learning Thermostat to aid our customers in Alberta, Canada with reducing their energy usage. That program proved to be such a rousing success that Direct Energy and Nest decided to deepen its partnership in May of this year to include states in the Northeast and Midwestern United States.

Visit to learn about available rates in your area and how you can benefit from one of our Comfort & Control Plans. You can also call us toll-free at 1-855-461-1926 to speak with a friendly Customer Service Representative for more information.

We’re proud to bring the energy saving potential and sleek design aesthetics of the Nest Learning Thermostat to our customers!
