Direct Energy Cares

Through the Direct Energy Neighbor to Neighbor Bill Assistance Program, you can donate any amount to help those in need pay their electric bills.

Donate Now

Nearly one in six Texans are affected by energy poverty. With the Public Utility Commission's Lite-Up electricity bill assistance program no longer available, the need for help is greater than ever. This year, Direct Energy has donated over $700,000 to the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program.

How to Donate

Donate on Your Monthly Bill:

Online: Check the Neighbor-to-Neighbor donation checkbox when you pay your bill.
By Mail: Check the "bill assistance" box on your payment slip.

Direct Energy also has a new online donation experience that you can share with your friends and family.

Need Assistance?

Through a local community action agency, those who qualify for the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program may receive up to $700 in assistance during a calendar year. Each agency screens applicants and determines who will receive assistance.
