Share Local Favorites with TXU Energy and Make Your Move Toward $5,000

New Sweepstakes Connects Texas Electricity Customers with Their Local Communities,Offers Chances to Win Either $50 Each Week or a $5,000 Grand Prize, Now Through June 16


Be a good neighbor, and you can win big. Thanks to TXU Energy, Texans now have a new social space to share tips on their local favorites with others who may be moving into new homes or communities across the state. The TXU Energy Make Your Move $5,000 Sweepstakes offers Texas electricity customers a chance to win a $5,000 grand prize just for sharing their local must-haves — everything from favorite grocery stores, restaurants and movie theaters to favorite outdoor destinations and the best handymen. A new weekly sweepstakes also offers chances to win $50 per week for sharing the same information.

“Our new sweepstakes are fun activities that reflect our sincere commitment to the people and communities we serve,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer, TXU Energy. “We have a long history of helping Texans. You can see it through programs like TXU Energy Energy AidSM and our support for the TXU Energy Urban Tree Farm, as well as our partnerships with a number of family entertainment destinations across the state. And we’re building community online, too, by sharing tips and ideas through social media initiatives like this one. It’s one more way we’re working to connect with our customers to help add value to their daily lives.”

The sweepstakes are open through June 16 to people who are 18 years or older and living in a competitive electricity market in Texas. They’re available via and on the TXU Energy Facebook page. The company will pose one question per week in both locations. Electricity customers can enter the $5,000 sweepstakes in three ways: They can share their responses via Facebook. New TXU Energy customers are automatically entered. And, the company will accept entries by mail. To enter the weekly $50 sweepstakes, electricity customers simply share their responses via Facebook. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.

“Whether you’re new to Texas, moving to a new neighborhood or staying right where you live, our new social media initiative gives you two distinct benefits,” said Grasso. “It offers you a way to pick up or share great local insights —and chances to win some extra cash just for connecting. If you’re new to the area or have been there for years, our mission here is to support Texans who are looking to get to know their neighborhoods or local communities better and those who already know them well.”

In addition to the chance to win cash prizes, Texas electricity customers can also receive extra cash just for making the switch to TXU Energy. They can save half off their Energy Charges for the first two months if they switch to the company’s new plan, TXU Energy Simple Rate 24SM. Or, they can earn a $200 move-in bonus when they sign on with TXU Energy SecureSaver 24SM.

Adding to the opportunity to help support summer electricity savings, TXU Energy also offers smartphone-enabled solutions like the BrightenSM iThermostat, energy saving solutions like the TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM, the BrightenSM Personal Energy Advisor and the company’s exclusive app for iPhone® and iPad®, TXU Energy also offers tips on energy efficiency at
