Direct Energy launches first free weekend energy plan

New Live Brighter Weekends plan provides free energy usage Friday evening to Sunday midnight for smart meter-enabled customers.

In North America, Direct Energy has launched the Live Brighter Weekends plan that allows customers to enjoy free power all weekend long.

The Live Brighter Weekends plan is the first in the US market that enables customers to enjoy free energy usage from Friday evening until Sunday night.

David Draper, general manager for Direct Energy in Texas where the plan is available, said: “At Direct Energy, we empower our customers to choose a plan that best fits their lifestyle. We are excited to offer innovative products like Live Brighter Weekends that are not available anywhere else in the market.”

This offer is available in certain Texas competitive electricity markets in which smart meters are enabled.
