Direct Energy Unveils Most Free Hours of Electricity in Texas with Twelve-Hour Power Free Nights

Direct Energy today announced a new plan offering Texans the most free hours of electricity in the state. With the new Twelve Hour Power Free Nights electricity plan, customers get free power for 50% of the day, every day during the times when they’re at home the most. From maintaining a comfortable home to charging an electric vehicle, customers can rest easy from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. In addition, Twelve-Hour Power features a competitive, fixed rate for the other half of the day. Direct Energy is proud to extend their suite of time-of-use products that fit all consumer lifestyles from free weekends to free nights.

“We wanted to give our customers a free nights plan that went above any other plan on the market. Knowing that half of their daily energy usage is on us gives our customers peace of mind to go about their daily activities,” said William Sweeney, Chief Marketing Officer, Direct Energy Home, North America. “Customers have more time to do the tasks that require the most energy during those free hours and are able to track their energy usage online. Direct Energy wants to empower consumers to be educated and proactive about their electricity usage, so we’re doing what we can to make it easy.”

Direct Energy’s Twelve-Hour Power 12’s most free hours electricity claim is as of January 21, 2019, when compared to other retail electricity providers’ offers listed on the website. Offer valid for new residential customers in Texas only, with a provisioned smart meter required. Terms and conditions apply. For more information, go to
