TXU Energy has launched the Mobile App for the iPhone. With this release, TXU Energy becomes the first and only electricity retailer in Texas to offer its customers mobile access to their accounts through an app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It’s also the latest innovation in the company’s ongoing efforts to connect customers across the state with online and mobile solutions to support the ways they use and manage electricity.

The new app connects TXU Energy’s residential customers with some of the most popular features available through txu.com. Using it, they can pay bills and choose payment options, and future enhancements coming throughout the summer will provide added features.

The new app can be downloaded for free through the Apple App Store. TXU Energy customers can use it to connect with their accounts using their TXU Energy MyAccount log in details. The app also provides instant auto-sync between customers’ iPhones and their online TXU Energy accounts, so that any changes they make via the app are automatically reflected in their online accounts and vice versa. Access to the App Store requires an iTunes account. In addition to offering the free download via the App Store, TXU Energy charges no fees to use the app for paying bills and other services.

The TXU Energy iPhone app follows the launch of TXU Energy’s mobile Web site in late May and the introduction of the mobile Web-enabled Brighten iThermostat, an energy savings solution that TXU Energy launched an app for in 2010.

The initial launches of TXU Energy’s new app and its new mobile Web site provide customers with the most frequently used and requested content and features available through txu.com.
