Direct Energy is not your average electricity supplier.

Our commitment as an energy provider is to help you Live Brighter™. That means offering our customers in the AEP Central area the resources and tools to do just that. Energy can be a mysterious commodity. We all use it, yet it's not often clear as to how our usage converts into what we pay. Direct Your Energy can clarify this relationship. The Predictive Weather Overlay is a unique planning tool. It not only predicts weather in the forecast, but estimates your future bill based on your historical usage measured against the predicted weather. Based on upcoming conditions and predictions, you can proactively adjust your usage to potentially lower costs.

Our Learning Center and blog also contain extensive resources for you to learn more about your energy use. Direct Energy is dedicated to helping you care for your home and understand and manage your energy use. A pressure cooker can help you save time and energy. We have information on that and more!

Don't settle for any typical electricity company when you can have one that goes above-and-beyond and is dedicated to you and your home's needs. Take control of your Texas electricity bills every month by making Direct Energy your energy provider today.
