Direct Energy teams up with Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation

Direct Energy today unveiled a partnership with Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation that aims to give back to the students, teachers and schools in FBISD by increasing its presence among residents. As an added incentive for residents to switch to Direct Energy, a donation from part of the proceeds of that new customer’s everyday energy usage will be made to the Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation

The Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation touches every school in FBISD through its grants to teachers and schools programs.  “We are proud to partner with Direct Energy and are grateful for their dedication to Education in FBISD,” said Brenna Smelley, Executive Director.

“We hope Fort Bend residents know that if they all switch to Direct Energy, there could be up to $2M in donations to Fort Bend Education Foundation, based on average household use, and that is money that will help empower bright young minds,” said Mike Beck, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Direct Energy“With the upcoming high cost of electricity during summer months, our Free Power Saturdays offer will have a competitive price the rest of the week while letting consumers do major everyday activities when they have the time, which is often during the weekend.”

Free Power Saturdays is Direct Energy’s first postpaid product that allows consumers to alter their electricity consumption patterns so they can save more during a free day. It simultaneously aims to increase power grid reliability during high-power days when many energy users are impacting the grid most. As part of the plan, Direct Energy provides its customers with email communications to remind them to take advantage of their Free Power Saturday.
