Direct Energy is excited to introduce two new products to its customers: Free Power Saturday and Free Power Sunday! These innovative energy plans are available to residential customers with a smart meter in the Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) territory of Illinois and are designed to help eligible customers tailor electricity consumption around their busy schedules to potentially save on energy costs.
These plans do exactly what they say: you won’t be charged for the electricity supply you use on the day you choose (Saturday or Sunday). Traditionally, weekends are periods when electricity rates, consumption, and demand are low. With Direct Energy’s Free Power Saturday and Free Power Sunday plans, customers who are willing and able to move some of their high electricity consumption activities to Saturday or Sunday have the greatest potential to see real savings, compared to what it would cost to do those activities during the rest of the week.
We understand that no two households use energy in the same way, so by offering a product you can customize, we enable you to have the ability to manage your electricity costs in a way that is most beneficial for you.
Free Power Saturday and Free Power Sunday are both 15-month fixed-rate plans, which means the rate you pay for your electricity won’t change over the course of your contract term. You must have a smart meter at your home and reside within the ComEd utility territory to participate.
At the moment, enrollment in Free Power Saturday or Free Power Sunday is available for up to 15,000 customers and on a first-come, first-served basis. We also encourage you to contact your utility or check your utility bill to make sure you have a smart meter before enrolling. Further, Direct Energy also recommends that, if you are under contract with another supplier, you should review your current contracts for potential obligations prior to enrolling.
