Texas-based retail electricity provider TXU Energy has announced several solutions and initiatives to help educate consumers and allow them to better manage their electricity consumption.

"We take very deliberate steps to encourage and empower both our residential and business customers to save money and avoid wasteful consumption," says Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer for TXU Energy. "While some customers see the individual benefits of saving money, others clearly recognize the impact that their personal efforts to conserve have on Texas and the reliability of the state’s main electricity grid.”

TXU Energy’s product and services offerings include the following:

Brighten iThermostat:
Residential and business customers who use this solution can control the intelligent thermostat at home or remotely - via the Web or free smartphone apps. Residential customers with iThermostats can also participate in statewide peak demand response events.

TXU Energy MyEnergy Dashboard: The company says the dashboard allows customers to track details of their usage and find opportunities to reduce consumption. For customers with smart meters, it also provides a forecast based on current usage patterns of what their usage and cost at home could be by the end of the month, giving them insights that can lead to reduced overall consumption. MyEnergy Dashboard is also available to some business customers.

SolarLease Service Package: In cooperation with solar project developer SolarCity, TXU Energy’s Solar Lease service gives north Texas homeowners solar power systems that can power their homes with immediate cost savings, TXU says.

TXU Energy Electricity Usage Report:
The company says it delivers a free weekly email that contains easy-to-read charts and graphs that give customers insights into and projections for their electricity usage so they can better control and manage their consumption.

Energy Management Alerts:
These free, automatic alerts allow customers to know when their consumption is on track to exceed their individually set thresholds in time to curtail their consumption and stay within their spending preferences.
