RANDOM DRAWING AND WINNER NOTIFICATION:  Administrator is an independent organization who will randomly select the potential winners. On or about each of the dates in the chart above, Administrator will select one (1) potential Prize winner in a random drawing of all eligible entries received. The potential winners will be notified by email or phone as applicable. Sweepstakes Parties shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion and time permitting, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.  If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected.  Odds of winning the Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received. All non-winning entries will automatically roll over and be eligible for the subsequent drawing.



Four (4) Prizes are available.  Each prize consists of one (1) year of free electricity awarded in the form of a check and/or gift card(s) to the confirmed winner in the amount of $3,000.  Value of free electricity is determined by TXU Energy price data and customers’ average annual electricity costs in the CenterPoint Transmission and Distribution Utility region, rounded up with an added amount to help offset any tax liability. Price of electricity may vary based on market conditions, however the total value of the prize will not exceed $3,000.

The Approximate Retail Value ("ARV") of any prize is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed.  If the actual purchase price of a prize is less than the ARV stated herein, the prize winner will NOT be entitled to a check, cash or other form of payment for the price difference.

PRIZE LIMITATIONS: Prizes will be awarded only upon winner redemption, confirmation, verification and final approval by Sponsor. No substitution or transfer of any prize (or prize component) or cash alternative permitted, except by Sponsor who reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute a prize (or prize component) of equal or greater value, if prize, or portion of prize, becomes unavailable. Prize winners shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize.  The Prize winners must sign and have notarized an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). The Prize winners will also be issued a 1099 form by Sponsor for the actual retail value of the Prize received. If a winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days of prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.  If it is discovered during prize verification you have entered, attempted to enter, or used multiple accounts to enter more than the stated limit, you will be disqualified at the discretion of the administrator, and your entries will be void. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means, which subvert the entry process, are void. All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Sweepstakes Parties are not responsible for late, lost, stolen, damaged, delayed, or undelivered prizes.

MISCELLANEOUS: Sweepstakes Parties are not responsible for late, lost, incomplete, corrupted, stolen, garbled, damaged, delayed, undelivered, or misdirected entries, all of which are void.
