TXU Energy Launches Beat the Heat Sweepstakes, Engages Texas Electricity Customers with Up to $10,000 Grand Prize

Texans are proud of all things Texas – even when it comes to Texas-sized

temperatures. TXU

Energy is giving Texas residents a chance to turn those hot days

into cool cash. The TXU Energy Beat the Heat Sweepstakes has a jackpot

that will grow each day by the amount of the state’s hottest

temperature. That means a 99-degree day will put $99 in the prize. The

pot will keep growing until Sept. 29, not to exceed $10,000, with each

daily high temperature determined by the temperatures reported by the National

Weather Service.

One winner will be selected in a random drawing in early October for a

minimum prize of $7,500.

TXU Energy’s Beat the Heat Sweepstakes offers a fun way to track the

weather and share beat-the-heat tips, but hot temperatures do pose


Texans generally face sustained high temperatures and humidity through

the day and night. That can drive heavy air conditioning use and

contributes to Texans consuming more electricity than residents of any

other state.

While TXU Energy wants to reward one lucky Texan for beating the heat

this summer, the company is always committed to helping Texans save

electricity and save money.

Leveraging smart-meter technology, TXU Energy has invested in numerous

tools and programs to give customers the control they need to save

energy and money while they keep cool. Customers can take advantage of simple

tips such as running dishwashers at night, the TXU

Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM

and the Brighten®

iThermostat that allows them to control their electricity usage from

anywhere they have Internet access.

Texans who are 18 or older can enter the Beat the Heat


once each day of the sweepstakes through one of six avenues:
