One of the things I dislike the most about monthly budgeting are costs that are never the same from month to month. I always know what the car payment and mortgage will be every month but I’m never sure about the electric bill. With summer on the horizon my electric bill goes nowhere but up making it difficult to know exactly what I’m working with month to month. I’m not big on financial surprises, so its nice to know that some electric companies offer fixed rate electricity plans

With Direct Energy, customers aren’t left in the dark about their energy usage or costs! All Texas customers have access to usage insights tools that break down your usage by day and appliance, and it can help you save! Visit directenergy.com/trackmyusage for more info

Direct Energy has a 12 month fixed rate plan available that also helps to give light to those in need! It’s called the Give Brighter 12 plan and it’s competitively priced for all. Direct Energy has teamed up with   MPOWERD to help light up the developing world when the sun goes down. We don’t always stop and realize how lucky we are because there are 1.5 billion  people who don’t have electricity in the developing world. How are they doing this? Meet the Luci light – an inflatable solar powered light that’s pure genius.

It’s basically like a small blow up toy with a solar panel on the bottom to absorb the sunlight. It is powered by an led light bulb inside with a power button to turn the device on and off. After I took mine out of the packaging, I immediately put it in direct sunlight on our window sill.

So for every person who signs up for Direct Energy’s Give Brighter 12 plan they will donate 1 light to a family in a developing world that can use this. Through Direct Energy’s efforts, over 10,000 lights have been distributed to date! from the philanthropy part, these lights are great to have around the house in case of power outages and camping! Here’s a video clip explaining more of what the Luci light does and how you can help bring light to someone who really needs it.
