We're Bringing You New, Innovative Products to Fit Your Needs

Direct Energy has recently launched a partnership with Nest Labs (a company purchased by Google in recent months) to offer our consumers a competitive energy price, PLUS a Nest learning thermostat (value of $249) at no cost.  The combined offer will allow consumers to take full ownership of their energy usage. Having a fixed-rate product, plus full control over your heating and cooling usage can potentially save you up to 20% on your energy consumption, especially since the thermostat learns your behavioral patterns.
