Direct Energy Introduces the Meridian Savings Plan and Meridian Smart Thermostat for Texas

Direct Energy Introduces the Meridian Smart Thermostat and Meridian Savings Plan for TexasOur world is increasingly interconnected, as we’re able to communicate and conduct our affairs from any place on the globe and at any time of day or night. We also expect this technology to be at our disposal and working to our benefit at all time. It takes a special electricity company to rise to that challenge by meeting the needs of its customers in new and creative ways. At Direct Energy, we strive to be that company in all that we do – and that’s why we are proud to announce the Meridian Savings Plan and Smart Thermostat.

The Meridian Savings Plan provides you with unique features designed to help reduce your monthly electricity usage by up to 10%:

  • A fixed energy charge that won’t change for the life of your 24-month contract term
  • Up to 3 FREE Meridian Smart Thermostats for your home
  • The Meridian Smartphone App to control the temperature settings on your thermostats from anywhere and at any time

Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Let us sweeten the deal for you with a bit of pricing information*:

  • Oncor customers currently can sign up as low as 10.4 cents per kWh
  • Centerpoint customers currently can sign up as low as 11.1 cents per kWh

Not only are you able to program your thermostat with settings that best match your lifestyle and schedule, you can change those settings when you need to from the convenience of your smartphone app.

And thanks to the way the thermostat and app share information about your energy usage patterns, you’re sent regular updates, alerts, tips, and recommendations through your e-mail and app to help you optimize your temperature settings to maximize energy efficiency and electricity savings.

We are really excited to share this amazing product with our wonderful customers. Currently, only customers living in the Oncor (Dallas / Fort Worth / Waco/ etc) and CenterPoint (greater Houston) service area can sign up for a Meridian Savings Plan. Customers in the rest of our US service area will have access to this plan and technology as it becomes available.
