Direct Energy Buzz – July 13th edition

Ignore the date – good things are happening! For those of you worried about Friday the 13th – relax. A little superstition should never interfere with plans for a good weekend!  We’ve been busy with great ideas for helping you avoid the real summer curse – high utility bills.

Upcoming vacation?  You can save money on energy even when you’re not home, and we had an awesome post here at the blog that gave you lots of ideas.  You can even leverage these tips on a daily basis for anytime you leave the house.

For our Texas customers struggling to beat the heat, make sure you’re following us on Twitter.  Then you won’t ever miss useful information from and about ERCOT, the nice folks responsible for keeping the lights (and air conditioning) on.

And since we’re also about having fun, you need to check out photos from our recent Corn Hole tourney in Pittsburgh.  If you are not yet familiar with the powerful sport that is corn hole, make sure you check out!  And we’ll also remind you of the continued awesomeness of DE Jams.

And finally: we know social media is about more than just talking: we listen too!  We’d love your input on a survey about energy apps – your ideas are important.

Make sure you check in next week – we have an awesome announcement in the works, especially for our non-profit partners!
