HOUSTON, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Direct Energy stands by the residents of Texas during this devastating time. We extend our deepest sympathies to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and our gratitude to the emergency response workers from across the U.S. who have come to help.
To support the immediate relief effort across the Greater Houston area and Gulf Coast of Texas, Direct Energy is matching donations up to $25,000 to the American Red Cross, and will continue working with our customers and the community in the months to come.
As Texans, we are here for each other. We believe in building and maintaining strong connections with the people and communities we serve. Through September 12, all disconnection activity has been suspended for Texas customers impacted by the recent weather events to allow them to focus on what matters most – their families and communities.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding in Texas," said John Schultz, President, Centrica North America and Direct Energy Business. "It is wonderful to see so many people working together to help those in need."
