Reduce Your Use
Nonprofits, you know it: small changes can make a big difference. At Direct Energy, we’re committed to using our energy expertise to make a difference in people’s lives — so we’re donating up to $100,000 to nonprofits like you to help reduce energy use.

Step 1: make a video

Lights, camera, action—it’s all you. And it’s all so easy. Just make a short video of two minutes or less showing us the good work you do in your community. Acceptable submission formats include Windows Media, Quick Time and MPEG (files ending in .wmv, .avi, .mov, .mpg or .mp4). Be passionate. Be creative. Be concise.

Tell us about your organization and its vision, how the small things you do make a big difference and why it’s so important that you continue your mission.

Step 2: Submit Online
Once your masterpiece is complete, upload it at We’ll also show you how to link the video over on your Facebook page!
Step 3: Like it and Share it.

Spread the word. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances to watch your video on Facebook and “LIKE” Direct Energy! For every 2,500 LIKES that Direct Energy receives, we’ll select a nonprofit participating in Reduce Your Use For Good to receive $2,500 to help them reduce their energy use and continue their good work. As the LIKES roll in, we’ll keep donating until we’ve donated up to $100,000!

What are you waiting for? Roll camera!
