Direct Energy Buzz – January 6 edition

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great time ringing in 2012. What did you do to celebrate this year? Direct Energy celebrated by drawing the winners in our ‘Tis the Season sweepstakes… We’ll tell you who won right after our weekly recap.

On Monday, we brought you the science behind your New Year’s resolution. We certainly never thought there might be rules to help you achieve your goals, but it turns out there are. Interested? Check it out here.

On Tuesday, we were glad to break some very important news. Direct Energy is happy to announce that we recently acquired Vectren Source for $39 million. We’re excited to expand our coverage through Ohio, Indiana and New York!

On Wednesday we offered you some advice if you’re still trying to pick a resolution. Consider something small and manageable… Your laundry room is a great place to start going green! Here are some tips to get you on the right path.

We were also happy to share some more weird news with you on Wednesday. Have you heard about Fibonacci numbers presence in nature? Read this article and then go out and study a pine cone or a rose. Pretty neat stuff!

If all these science postings have peaked your interest, be sure to check out our Thursday link. The Huffington Post highlighted some awesome science and news blogs to read (but only after you finished reading ours!).

Oh! And lest we forget… Congratulations to the winners in the ‘Tis the Season Sweepstakes that we held on our Facebook page.
