In Texas, we have the option to choose our electricity provider. When I found out about the initiative from Direct Energy’s Give Brighter 12 plan, I couldn’t wait to share the news! A way to help light the way for those in need? Let me tell you what I found out.
When you ask me to imagine a world without power, it’s hard to do. We rely on power for cooking, television, air conditioning and our everyday electronic devices. But when you stop and read statistics, 1.5 billion people around the world in developing communities don’t have access to reliable, safe, and affordable sources of energy. Sadly, when the sun goes down in these communities, students, families, businesses and health clinics are without electricity all night long, meaning they don’t have light to study to improve their futures, make money to support their families, or heal sick or injured people. It makes my heart ache.
Enter the Luci light. This solar powered light is inflatable and durable, and can brighten a room for up to 12 hours after charging in the sun! And when customers sign up for Direct Energy’s 12-month fixed-rate electricity plan, MPOWERD will deliver a Luci light to someone without access to regular electricity so they have the light they need. (And you’ll get one, too!) MPOWERD’s non-profit community partners distribute Luci lights to people in need in countries including Kenya, Haiti, Philippines and Nepal.
I can personally say my children each enjoy the Luci light, and I appreciate that it’s perfect for every room in the house! We keep it near the window, so it’s always charged and ready to go. We are ready when a storm takes away power and when my 7 year old wants to read in a darker corner of his room. It would be perfect to keep in a boat, car or gift to teachers! With the Give Brighter 12 plan from Direct Energy, you have the chance to #GiveBrighter and make a difference in the world. (You can watch this video to learn more about the program!) If you are in the market for a competitive energy plan, take a look at the Give Brighter 12 plan from Direct Energy. You can potentially lower your energy bill, save a little money and give back to the developing communities in need.
Keep in mind, Direct Energy helps you use less energy with unparalleled usage insights called Direct Your Energy, which allows you to tracking your usage by appliance. They are the only energy provider to partner with Plenti®, and the official retail electricity sponsor of Texas Athletics.
