TXU Energy Announces the Good For Texas Sweepstakes - Program Designed to Help Customers Use Less and Save More


To help Texans use less electricity, lower their bills and help the environment, TXU Energy has launched the Good for Texas Sweepstakes. Individuals can win products that will help them save and conserve energy every day.

"We want to help our customers use less electricity, lower their bills and help the environment," said Dan Valentine, TXU Energy's Chief Marketing Officer. "The Good For Texas Sweepstakes is an example of how we are providing them with the tools and information they need to do those things."

Texas residents 18 years old and older can register for a chance to win the Good for Texas Sweepstakes by going to http://www.txu.com/goodfortexas.htm. Participants can enter daily, but only once per day. Registration ends November 5.

Participants may also enter at the State Fair of Texas by stopping by the TXU Energy booths located in the Grand Place Building and in the Chevy Main Stage area. Computers will be available for people to enter the sweepstakes during the Fair.

The Grand Prize winner will win a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid with an approximate retail value of $47,018. The car combines hybrid technology with a full-sized SUV.

The First Prize winner will receive a 2 kW Solar PV Panel System with an approximate retail value of $18,000 and free installation. Once installed, this solar panel system can save an average Texas household approximately two months worth of electric service each year. If the winner lives in multi-family housing or a location that restricts this type of installation, then an alternative prize will be awarded.

There are also weekly and daily winners in the sweepstakes. Six weekly prizewinners will each receive a $575 Lowe's Gift Card.  An additional five weekly prizewinners will receive a $500 Bill Credit from TXU Energy. The daily prize is a 10-pack of compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Winners will be selected by random drawings. Grand, first and weekly prizewinners will be notified by phone or email within approximately five business days of the conclusion, around December 8, of the sweepstakes drawing. Daily winners will have their prize shipped to them automatically.
