Champion Energy Supports Kids’ Meals

Champion Energy
On December 7th, Champion Energy employees volunteered at Kids’ Meals holiday party presenting families with gifts just in time for Christmas. Prior to the event, Champion Energy raised over $1,000 to purchase Toys R Us and Walmart gift cards with a bake sale and cookie contest.

Kids’ Meals Houston offers meals on wheels for pre-schoolers in Houston’s lower income neighborhoods. Each year, Kids’ Meals hosts a holiday party for the families they serve.  There’s a DJ, a visit from Santa, food from Chick-fil-A and Shipley Donuts, free books from the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation, and gift cards for each family (donated by companies like Champion).

This further extends Champion’s company policy of allowing employees to take up to 2 paid hours monthly to volunteer at a non-profit organization. We believe that encouraging community involvement not only helps the community, it helps to build a spirit of camaraderie among employees.

You too can help the fight against hunger for as little as $10 to feed 5 children. Donate at

Customers Appreciate Champion Energy Customer Service

Here are a few testimonials from our customers who recently interacted with a few of our customer service agents.

Customer Service Agent: Cheryl Hood

Customer Care agent Cheryl Hood at Champion Energy

Cheryl Hood –  “I joined Champion Energy because they are honest and transparent with their customers. I can be totally honest with customers. The vast majority of people I talk to are longtime customers and are very happy with our service.”

Words from customer: “I am new to Texas (just arriving from Colorado) and have researched new electric service for the last 3 days. Finally after reviewing the Consumer Affairs and BBB websites I decided on Champion since it was listed with Consumer Affairs as one of the top electric providers.  I first was going to complete my application online, but thought it best to see for myself if Champion really does offer top-notched customer service.  I must say your associate Cheryl Hood provided “stellar” customer service, my stay in Dallas is supposed to be 6 months, (my stay may be extended) so my length of service I requested is 6 months.  Believe me, at the end of my 6 months I will be providing a review either good or bad, but thought it necessary to let you know today that Cheryl is the essence of what the best customer service agent should look like, I hope she embodies your business model and all of your associates provide the same service.”  – Nicole T.

Customer Service Agent: Ashton General

Customer Care agent Ashton General at Champion Energy

Ashton General – “I get a deep sense of satisfaction helping customers.”

Words from customer: I wanted to let management know that I really appreciated the help I received from the agent named Ashton. I was undecided about the dates I was transferring my service but he never made me feel rushed or like he did not want to assist me. He was very patient and knowledgeable and I really appreciate that. You guys really have a quality person working for you. Too often people will make a point to complain when they receive bad service but will not make a point to compliment when they receive great service. I wanted to make it a point to let you all know how awesome he was and how in today’s times quality, friendly helpful people are rare. I hope you recognize him and tell him thank you for making you all look so darn good. – Shunta S.

Words from Customer: Just wanted to give Rachel some Kudos. I recently was on the phone with Rachel regarding my renewal. She helped me make up my mind to stay with Champion Energy. She was not only very pleasant on the phone, but very helpful. Rachel was nice enough to go over all the costs of another provider with me and compare it to Champion. Rachel is definitely an asset to your company! – Louis S.

Customer Service Agent: Mayra Majano

Customer Care agent Mayra Majano at Champion Energy

Mayra Majano – “It’s nice to work for a company that truly values their customers.”

Champion Energy Services, a subsidiary of Calpine Corporation (NYSE: CPN), the electricity supplier to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, announced on August 1, 2016 that it will be donating Green-e Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match the electricity used during the 2016 US Open, the highest-attended annual sporting event in the world.

Green-e Certified 100% Renewable Energy Certificates will be donated to cover the energy use of the 2016 US OpenWhat is a Renewable Energy Certificate, and how does the 2016 US Open benefit from having them?

RECs play an important role in ensuring the viability of renewable energy sources in the United States. RECs help support the generation of renewable power sources and provide more opportunities for facilities and homes to participate in the “green” movement without the need for installing renewable electricity infrastructure onsite.

“As a responsible member of the community, the National Tennis Center strives to not only reduce our own impact on the environment, but to promote environmentally friendly behavior to the thousands of tennis players and fans who visit us every year. The donation of renewable energy certificates will go a long way toward doing that.” – Daniel Zausner, COO, USTA BJK National Tennis Center.

Why is Champion Energy donating Green-e certified RECs to the 2016 US Open?

“We are excited to support the USTA’s commitment to environmentally responsible operations,” said Jason Fox, Vice President of Supply. “As a world-class sporting event, the 2016 US Open represents an opportunity to encourage and promote the use of renewable energy. We are glad to serve the USTA, and all of our clients, in a way that supports their operational goals.”
