Direct Energy Business is thrilled to bring the Small Business Community Heroes award program to the Philadelphia region for the first time. Direct Energy is committed to serving its many residential and business customers in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania. We are also dedicated to investing in the communities in which we live and work. 

The Small Business Community Heroes award program will recognize a small business owner who exemplifies the volunteer spirit. Do you know a small business owner who makes his or her community a better place to live?  Please take a few minutes to nominate that individual by Monday, September 15, 2014 by 11:59 p.m. at

Here is some additional information about the program:

  • A small business is defined as having less than 100 employees.
  • The award is open to all small business owners in the following counties: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.
  • Nominations should be no longer than ~750 words and must detail the specific contributions the small business owner has made to improve the community through volunteerism.
  • Nominations should also include ~250 words about the nominee’s small business.
  • The winner of the award will receive a $500 cash prize and a $2,000 donation to the winner’s community charity of choice (must be a 501(c)(3)).
  • The winner will be announced on CBS 3’s Talk Philly.

A selection committee from Direct Energy will review all submissions, and the winner will be announced at the end of September/beginning of October. We applaud all of the wonderful volunteers and look forward to recognizing those small business owners who devote their time for the greater good of the community.

The Small Business Community Heroes award program also launched in Columbus, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore this year.
