One Lucky Texan Will Take Home Up to 12 Months of Free Electricity as the Winner of TXU Energy’s Second Annual Beat the Heat Sweepstakes

Participants can earn prizes by monitoring summertime electricity usage and spending


TXU Energy launched its second annual Beat the Heat Sweepstakes to give consumers a chance to win a grand prize of free electricity for up to 12 months.

“Even though consumers can’t control unpredictable outside temperatures in Texas, they can still beat the heat by monitoring electricity usage and expenses using tools and programs like the TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSMBrighten® iThermostat or any of the free notifications and alerts we make available in our new Online Preference Center,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer for TXU Energy. “We’re committed to helping consumers save electricity and money, and the 2013 Beat the Heat Sweepstakes is just one more way we create engagement and make it fun.”

Texans who are 18 or older can enter up to six times between July 22-Sept. 30 for a chance to win the sweepstakes. Participants have six ways to enter:

  • Sign up for a TXU Energy residential electric plan – or take your existing plan with you if you move.

  • Create a TXU Energy MyAccount.

  • Sign up for Paperless Billing (and opt out of delivery by mail).
