About Direct Energy

Based in Houston, Direct Energy was purchased earlier this year by NRG. Direct Energy also is one of the largest retail power suppliers in North America, giving nearly 4 million customers in deregulated markets across 12 states and the District of Columbia the power to choose from a variety of rate plans.

Direct Energy electric rates may offer options such as free nights or weekends, depending on your location. The energy company’s reviews are strong across multiple categories. Of course, there are also competing suppliers in every region, so you will need to examine your options to decide what’s right for your family. The company offers a satisfaction guarantee, allowing customers to switch to another Direct Energy plan within 30 days of their service start date without a fee.
