The lives of the Stansberry family were changed today as they drove away in a brand new 2009 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid. TXU Energy announced that the Dallas family is the grand prize winner of the company's Good For Texas Sweepstakes.
The 12-week campaign focused on how consumers can use less energy to save on their bills and help the environment at the same time. Nearly 200,000 Texans entered the Good for Texas Sweepstakes.
"My car is 13 years old, has 167,000 miles, has hail damage and the rear bumper is bent down from where someone hit me and drove off," said financial consultant Brad Stansberry. "It is a blessing and a gift to be receiving this prize."
The Tahoe Hybrid has an approximate retail value of $47,018. It combines hybrid technology with a full-sized SUV to get an estimated 21 miles per gallon for city driving.
"It's exciting for us to help this growing family by providing them with a new Chevy Tahoe Hybrid," said Dan Valentine, TXU Energy's Chief Marketing Officer. "But, more important, is raising awareness of the things customers can do to use less electricity, save money and help the environment. That's what is really good for Texas."
The first prize winner, Annette Tolle, Carrollton, won a 2-kW Solar PV Panel System with an approximate retail value of $18,000 and free installation. This solar panel system, once placed on the house, could save an average Texas household approximately two months worth of service per year.
There were also weekly and daily winners. Weekly prize winners received either a $500 bill credit from TXU Energy or a $575 Lowe's Gift Card. Daily prize winners received a 10-pack of compact fluorescent light bulbs. All winners were selected by random drawings.
