Looking for cheap electricity? Hey, good for you, more people should! Unfortunately, it’s hard to get past all of the gimmicks that promise low rates but actually end up costing you more.
We offer cheap electricity, but we are not cheap
At Pogo, we provide energy that costs less than many of our competitors. But it’s the same energy—your lights won’t flicker and you’ll get first rate customer service. So how can we charge less for the same product?
Is less expensive electricity different in any way? Nope!
We all get our power from the same Transmission and Distribution Utilities (TDUs) across Texas. You have the power to choose how much you pay for it. “Cheap lights” doesn’t mean lower quality.
So, if it’s the same product, why do the big guys charge more?
The difference isn’t the electrons themselves – it’s the companies peddling it. They pretend that their plans are the cheapest, then lock you into a long-term contract and make their profits off of all the hidden fees they didn’t tell you about. You shouldn’t need a law degree to save money on your energy bills (electricity is a necessity!) but with some of these contracts, that’s the only way.
Contracts and fees aren’t the only shady practices these companies engage in. That “free nights and weekends” plan you signed up for is probably a scam, too. NIghts and weekends are when you use the least energy, so they charge you more in peak times to make up for the “discount.”
Even if a company claims that they have the lowest rate, you can bet they’ll make up for it with fees. And, if a company has a high rate, you’re not really getting anything extra for that money.
Want actual cheap electricity? Here’s how: find a better energy company. Like Pogo!
You won’t find any hidden fees here, not because they’re hidden *really* well, it’s because we don’t have any to begin with. Same goes for things like deposits, credit checks, annual contracts, snakes, etc.
What we do have, though, is a ton of extremely satisfied customers, transparency, excellent customer service, 100% clean energy, and a burning desire to change the electricity game in Texas. In other words, you could pick us on price alone, but there are so many other reasons to switch.
Speaking of paying less, you know the best way to do that? Actually being aware of your usage in real-time! Our pay-as-you-go model (also known as prepaid electricity, but without all the dirty tricks that many prepaid providers pull) includes daily text alerts telling you how much energy you’re using. Putting you in control helps you reduce your usage, which means reducing your bill no matter what your rate is.
Between helping you cut your usage, not charging you hidden fees and not locking you into a long contract, we think we’ve got the perfect recipe for *actual* cheap prepaid electricity.
