Impacted by Hurricane Harvey: Direct Energy reaches out to support customers and employees as relief efforts begin

Headquartered in Houston, Direct Energy was in the direct path of Hurricane Harvey. In a four day period, rainfall of over 40 inches drenched Houston as the wettest tropical cyclone on record for the US.

As the floodwaters subside and Houston residents begin to return to their homes, Direct Energy has reached out to all of its Texas customers to support the relief efforts. From not charging late fees to working to restore power, Direct Energy has made a promise to care for its customers in this time of tragedy. You can find a list of all of the commitments Direct Energy has made on their website (click here).

Additionally, many employees of the Centrica-owned company are facing their own challenges. A relief fund has been started to support the employees who have been directly impacted. The North American Leadership Team is matching every donation given through the donation page. You can join in supporting Centrica and Direct Energy employees at this link.

Direct Energy has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 2015. Multiple brands, including Mister Sparky, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning, Bounce Energy, and Home Warranty of America, host annual campaigns to raise money for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2016, Direct Energy has also made a one million dollar annual gift to Texas Children’s Hospital, located just a few miles south of their headquarters. They were first inducted into the Miracle Million Club in August 2016 and have remained a valued member.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals gives funds un-restricted to local member hospitals to use on the most immediate need. You can support kids being treated at Texas Children’s Hospital by donating on their website (click here).
