TXU Energy Brightens Holiday-Weary Lives with New Sweepstakes

Company invites Texas electricity customers to share why they deserve a break in 2013


Have you ever longed for a holiday from the holidays? If so, TXU Energy has one lucky Texan covered for 2013: Now through Jan. 5, the company’s new Brighten Up Your Holiday with TXU Energy sweepstakes is offering Texas electricity customers chances to win a spring/summer vacation package to the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay (near San Francisco), including airfare, hotel and spending money for a rejuvenating 3-day spa stay for the winner and three friends.

Entering to win the spa trip is easy. New residential customers who sign up for any of the TXU Energy Free Nights plans, including those with a free Brighten® iThermostat, are automatically entered. So are existing customers who add the company’s programmable thermostat to any existing TXU Energy service plan or who use the TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM, a free energy savings solution the company offers via txu.com/myaccount.

Social media also offers easy ways to play. Participants can tell TXU Energy why they deserve a post-holiday break on the dedicated sweepstakes tab on the company’s Facebook page or by following @TXUEnergy on Twitter and including #TXUEholiday in a tweet on why they deserve the break.

The new sweepstakes is open to Texas residents who are 18 or older. Alternative entry methods, full sweepstakes rules and details are available on the TXU Energy Facebook page. No purchase is necessary to enter or win. The company will announce the grand-prize winner in early 2013.  

About TXU Energy’s Free Nights Plans
Earlier this year, TXU Energy launched TXU Energy Free Nights* plans, a suite of plans that offers customers free nighttime Energy Charges between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., every night for the life of their contracts. In addition to the nighttime savings, the plans also provide a simple rate for energy during the day that won’t increase any time of the year.

About the Brighten iThermostat
The Brighten® iThermostat, an energy savings solution from TXU Energy, is a programmable thermostat that makes it easy to access, change or set indoor temperatures while you’re at home or away via a Web-enabled PC, tablet or smartphone. Key features of the tool are available via the company’s free iPhone® and Android™ apps.

About the TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard
All TXU Energy customers can use the free TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard via any Web-enabled PC or tablet device. They can also access key features of the tool via free TXU Energy iPhone® and AndroidTM apps. The dashboard shows users their whole home’s electricity usage and costs with local weather data and personalized charts and graphs that make it easy to understand electricity consumption and costs. Customers with smart meters can see their usage and costs down to the hour and a forecast of their next bill before it arrives.


*Free nighttime Energy Charges applies only to the amount billed for the Energy Charges between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. every day during the plan term. Base Charge, TDU Delivery Charges, state and local taxes, and all other billed charges apply normally to all hours of usage.
