Texas Shoppers Pay No Taxes on Many ENERGY STAR® Products

TXU Energy Reminds Consumers Memorial Day Weekend Is Good Time for Online Shopping


Texas shoppers pay no state or local sales taxes on the purchase of certain ENERGY STAR® products this weekend and TXU Energy is encouraging customers to visit its Online Energy Store (txu.com/energysolutions) for energy-efficient home products.

Consumers can quickly save a lot of money by using energy-efficient products and now, consumers can keep more money in their wallet when they shop May 29-31, 2010 on products with the ENERGY STAR® logo.

As energy- and budget-conscious Texans look for ways to use electricity more efficiently and save money, the TXU Energy Online Store provides a one-stop shop for hard-to-find products that can make your home more energy efficient.

"We are committed to helping our customers save energy and save money while doing something good for the environment," said Jennifer Pulliam, director of innovation for TXU Energy.  "Our Online Energy Store has a number of ENERGY STAR® products for purchase."

The TXU Energy Online Store lets consumers shop from home over the internet for items ranging from caulk to chimney balloons, to hard-to-find bug-deterring and odor-eliminating CFLs, to motion-sensing smart power strips that automatically turn on and off.

ENERGY STAR® qualified products help consumers conserve precious energy resources.  The TXU Energy Online Store provides energy-efficient solutions to help consumers manage energy consumption. 

This year marks the third ENERGY STAR sales tax holiday weekend and it begins at 12:01 a.m. (after midnight) on Saturday, May 29, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, May 31 (Memorial Day).
