The Direct Energy Buzz: July 15th Edition

Welcome back to another edition of The Direct Energy Buzz!

Before we begin, what are you doing to keep cool this summer? Go ahead and leave us a comment!

Here’s a run down of what you might have missed on our Blog and Facebook and Twitter this week.

This has been one hot summer for much of the U.S. We posted a CNN article discussing the heat wave across the U.S. and the record high temperatures 23 states have seen this summer.

And, speaking of hot temperatures, you’re not the only one feeling it. Our pets are also subject to the scorching sun, and they need special attention to cope with it. We posted an article from The Humane Society of the United States about how to keep your pets cool despite the heat wave. Check it out!

Maybe you’re using this heat wave as an excuse to get out of town on the weekend and get somewhere cooler. Check out this article from our Blog for tips to keep your energy consumption as low as possible while you’re away.

And, if that vacation you’re taking is a road trip, you’ll definitely want to read this post from the U.S. Department of Energy on how to save on gas this summer.

This week we also took the opportunity to highlight an organization in New York that is helping to bring organic food to a low-income community. Check it out here.

Lastly, we like to announce a way for you to join the Direct Energy team. The Direct Energy Job of the Week is a Process Improvements Manager in Toronto, On. To apply, use Requisition ID FIN000000I2 at
