TXU Energy Free Nights & Solar Days Brings Together Two Great Things in One Great Plan

Just in time for summer, company’s latest time-of-use plan is 100 percent renewable


TXU Energy today announces that it is combining its most popular Right Time Pricing PlanSM with renewable power with the launch of its newest plan. TXU Energy Free Nights & Solar DaysSM makes it easy for customers to go 100 percent renewable. 

“This is the best of both worlds – our customers get the free electricity they love along with the added benefits of renewable energy,” said Sydney Seiger, chief marketing officer for TXU Energy. “Because this plan doesn’t require rooftop solar panels, it’s an easy way to take advantage of the sun regardless of whether you live in a house or an apartment.”  

Free Nights & Solar Days is 100 percent renewable as TXU Energy purchases solar power, along with solar and wind renewable energy credits, offsetting customers’ actual usage. Customers get free electricity all night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., and solar electricity all day from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.  

“This is a one-of-a-kind plan that gives customers a new, easy, and affordable way to go 100 percent renewable with both solar and wind,” Seiger said. “They can even track their solar and free hours online or through our mobile app, and watch their savings add up.”

With innovative tools like TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard, customers can monitor their personal consumption information from advanced meters, and then make changes to how and when they use electricity to save even more money.

The TXU Energy Free Nights® suite of plans gives consumers the ability to save money by making simple changes to their daily routines and shifting their electricity usage to the free nighttime hours. In 2016, customers on these plans received nearly 40 percent of their energy usage for free.

Simple changes to help maximize the benefits of Free Nights & Solar Days include:

  • Using large appliances like washing machines and dishwashers during free hours; many have timers to delay start times.
  • Charging portable electronics during the free hours.
  • Adjusting programmable thermostat settings.
