TXU Energy's Energy Fit Club and Get Energy Fit Now! Sweepstakes Announced

Members can conserve and save while competing for a chance to win $5,000.


TXU Energy has launched TXU Energy's Energy Fit Club, an easy-to-use and informative online resource to help customers use less energy and save more money. TXU Energy is also launching the TXU Energy Get Energy Fit Now! Sweepstakes, which includes a $5,000 grand prize.

TXU Energy's Energy Fit Club features a helpful, downloadable widget, an interactive Web-based application that helps members identify areas where they can improve energy efficiency and set specific goals while tracking their progress.  The club is free and open to everyone. However, Energy Fit Club members who are also TXU Energy customers may be eligible to receive exclusive offers, rewards and additional benefits.

"Our focus is helping customers use less so they can reduce their bills," said Dave Hennekes, Vice President of Residential Markets for TXU Energy. "TXU Energy's Energy Fit Club is a unique interactive program designed to help members do that by setting and tracking their energy fitness goals.  It empowers members through a personal energy planner while providing a variety of basic energy-saving tools and tips."

Consumers can join the club at www.txu.com/getfit. Once they are enrolled, members can choose their favorite medium - Facebook, MySpace, Friendster, MyYearbook, Blogger, email, iGoogle, Live, Hi5 or all - to download and use the widget. The widget guides the members through a simple quiz that rates their current energy efficiency levels and energy fitness goals.  Based on the results, it helps members set up reminders on their calendar to reach their goals. The widget also provides links to energy-saving resources.

Visitors to the site can enjoy special features such as the TXU Energy Power Saver Challenge Simulator, Earth-friendly electricity plans and several other helpful tools to guide members through energy efficiency.

The club is being co-launched with the TXU Energy Get Energy Fit Now! Sweepstakes. New TXU Energy residential customers and anyone who joins the Energy Fit Club before April 30, 2009 are automatically entered in the sweepstakes. Qualifying customers will also be automatically entered in the sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes is designed to encourage Texans to discover new ways to manage energy consumption and costs and empower them to save electricity and money. Winners will be selected by random drawing conducted around May 30, 2009. The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes will win $5,000.  In addition, one hundred first prize winners will receive an Electric EcoKit comprised of energy efficiency items including a refrigerator thermometer, CFL bulbs, air filter whistle, draft stoppers, night light and a brochure on energy efficiency tips.

No purchase is necessary to enter sweepstakes.  For more information, including odds of winning and prize and eligibility details, please visit www.txu.com/getfit.
