You’re pretty hip, right? You tried out a new taco spot before any of your friends. You saw that hilarious tweet before it went viral. You listened to Chance the Rapper back in his mixtape days – way before he was winning Grammys.

Still, as you age gracefully into your mid-20’s (or late 20’s… or if you just turned 29 again), staying ahead of trends gets even harder. Your life is busy now! You’re not as plugged in, you don’t really *get* this whole Soundcloud Rap thing and while you definitely won’t tell anyone, you got a bit hungry after seeing an Applebee’s commercial last week.

Listen, we’re not saying that you peaked a few years back or anything, but maaaaaaybe you’ve lost your fastball. Your recommendation used to really mean something, right? Well, we can help you recover some of that hipster cred, and save you plenty of taco money in the process.

Here’s the secret – and stick with us here, because it sounds pretty wild: pay as you go power.  More commonly called ‘prepaid energy’ (which we scoff at), it actually rocks, as long as it’s done the right way. Paying as you go means no hidden fees, no BS (bill shock) and full transparency. You know, the way we expect things to work.

Discovering prepaid energy is like when you dealt with crummy lunch options near your office until one day, you stumbled upon an great pho place tucked away in an alley. What do you mean, this has been here the whole time while I’ve been suffering? Making a discovery like that is great on its own – but when it replaces something you’re sick of anyways, that makes it even better, right?

Odds are, you (and your friends) are getting ripped off by one of the big guys – and getting shocked by sky-high bills at the end of each month. That ‘free nights and weekends’ plan you signed up for? Buddy, it’s a scam.

Once you try pay-as-you-go power, you’ll kick yourself for not knowing about this sooner, and you’ll be the first to tell all your friends about it. More money in your pockets means more margaritas for you and your crew, right?

Not sold on prepaid electricity just yet? Hey, we get it; most other prepaid companies trick and scam you just like the big guys. That’s why Pogo Energy exists: to do something right, and do it the right way. Here are some more reasons why you should give it a chance (not the rapper).

Wait why is this here? We said *not* the rapper. Does anyone proof these things?

Pogo Puts You In Charge
Raise your hand if you’ve ever had to adjust your budget after getting an energy bill, and missed out on a great night out with your friends. Unless your parents are oil barons, it’s probably something you’ve experienced. Well, with prepaid electricity, you know – and control – how much energy you’re using every day.

Worried about spending too much on energy? Our daily alerts let you know how much energy you’re using as you’re using it – not a month later, when it’s too late to make adjustments to your energy consumption – so you can make some adjustments to your usage.

Hate it when all of your bills hit at once? Never worry about that again. Our pay-as-you-go model means you make payments at your own pace, depending on your financial ability and budget. No more wondering how you’ll get to pay day!  

No Deposit, No B.S.
There’s no sugar-coating it: signing up for a new energy company usually suuuuuuuuuuucks. You pay a huge deposit and fees way before getting that wildly unpredictable (and likely way-too-high) bill after the first month.

Why pay twice (and too much!) for that first month of energy? Want no deposit electricity? With Pogo, there’s no deposit and no invasive credit checks. You just enroll on our site, charge up your account with as little as $20 and boom, your power will be on later that day.

Connection fees? Nope.

Disconnection fees? Nah, son.

Reconnection fees? See above.

Low balance fees? Never. Why are these even a thing?

Spiders? Don’t have those, either.

Snakes? We’re afraid of ‘em, don’t judge.

In summary:

The only thing that we can’t help with is the crushing weight of your parents’ expectations, but if it helps, we’re not gonna judge you for anything.

No Contract
Have a fear of commitment? Hey, no judgment here.

Here at Pogo Energy, we don’t require you to sign your life away with a long-term contract. We’re pretty darn confident that you’ll be satisfied with your service (after all, our customers love us), but if you don’t, it sure doesn’t help anyone to lock you into a long-term deal. That’s how the big guys make money, and it’s not fair.

Save Money
Again, a dollar saved is a dollar you can put towards tacos. With Pogo, your rate will be 20% cheaper than conventional billing power companies – plus we break down your usage and, as mentioned above, send you daily updates.

So, in addition to our lower rates, we’ll help you keep your usage low, which doubles up your savings! Go ahead, add that guac, champ.

100% Clean
Can’t shake the feeling of existential dread that comes with knowing that your money is going towards a company that is making everything worse for everyone? You know, like flying on Delta?

Well, those big energy companies are among the worst offenders when it comes to carbon pollution. Here at Pogo, we use only 100% renewable energy, which is just as reliable and effective as the energy you’re getting from the big guys, but without harming the environment.

We sure hope that’s something that matters to you – we’re trying to save the world, after all – but even if it’s not, it’s a cool bonus on top of all the savings!

Respect!
I
n addition to everything above – the fair pricing, the transparency, the ethical practices – we also won’t ever, for any reason, turn off your power at night, on weekends, holidays or during extreme weather. Even if your balance goes negative, we won’t disconnect you.

Need a deferred payment plan? We offer one – and don’t have any fees, interest or credit checks associated. The only condition – and our nerdy lawyers made us put this in – is that you have to repay prior to terminating or switching service. But hey, we know you’re good for it.

On the fence about trying us? Have your first five days of energy on the house.

Go ahead, try us out. You’ll want to tell your friends about it. And hey, if everyone starts talking about how great Pogo Energy is next year, you’ll get to say you liked us before we were cool.

Just like that, you’ll have your fastball back.  

Ugh, prepaid electricity, right?

Why would anyone want to know how much energy they’re actually using before they have to pay for it? It’s so much more fun to sit back, crank up the heat in your home and roll the dice to see just how much bill shock you can absorb this month.

That mindset is crazy, right? Well, odds are it’s exactly what you’ve been doing. Yeah, yeah, we know, prepaid electricity isn’t for you because prepaid energy companies suck. We’ve all heard about their their sky-high prices, hidden fees and dishonest rates. You’re wise to distrust them. They’ve earned it!

However, when done right, pay as you go power (aka prepaid electricity) can really rock! Despite what you’ve been conditioned to think, you can have cheap electricity, that’s 100% clean with no deposit, long-term contracts or hidden fees.

At Pogo Energy, we think it’s high time to kill an antiquated industry, and we believe there’s only one group we can call to help – or, in this case, send an Instagram DM to – millennials.

Millennials Love Prepaid Electricity

Millennials killed [blank] is the new Florida Man – you’re in charge of a fill-in-the-blank, choose-your-own adventure where the outcomes are equally unpredictable and hilarious. Napkins? See ya, we’re just using paper towels now. Applebee’s? Let’s find a local hole-in-the-wall instead. Extravagant diamond engagement rings? No thank you, we have student loans to pay off.

Headlines about millennials’ impact on now-antiquated industries read like obituaries, and each one leaves an impression that they’re acting as some sort of economic Thanos, stopping at nothing to destroy ridiculous and antiquated marketplaces.

Well, millennials, we’re here to help you find the rest of the Infinity Stones – so long as you put those greedy energy companies at the top of your list for the next ones to go.  

Those “Millennials kill traditional power companies” headlines are long overdue, but we’ve been brainwashed into thinking there’s only one way to get electricity: their way. It’s time to fight back, and the best battleground is the great state of Texas where deregulated energy has given you the ability to take control. Novel concepts like affordable energy, no BS (bill shock), treating customers right and transparency are finally within reach here in Texas.

When’s the last time you heard of an energy company treating someone right? (Pogo Energy notwithstanding, with our 4.9+ star reviews!) And at Pogo we’re committed to doing more than just treating our customers right, we treat our planet right, too, with 100% clean energy at no additional cost to you. According to Rice university researchers, Texas is one of the few places in the entire world(!) with enough wind and sun to sustainably power its entire grid. We want to be at the forefront of that, whereas the traditional energy giants (and the dishonest prepaid power companies, too) don’t – or if they do offer clean energy, they charge you a premium for helping to save the world.

That’s not right – and it shouldn’t be the norm. Millennials haven’t just been killing antiquated industries – they’ve been sending a message that confusing, unfair or exploitative business models aren’t going to be around much longer. Energy in Texas should be the next thing on the millennial hit list.

When done right, pay-as-you-go electricity (please don’t call us prepaid) is perfect for taking control away from the giant energy companies and giving it back to the people. For example, we send daily alerts and don’t have any hidden fees, so you always know what your bill is going to look like, and you have the power to come in under your budget by adjusting your energy habits before it’s too late.

Millennials’ spending power has become a threat to companies that don’t wish to adapt and treat their customers with respect – and our goal is to provide that in an industry that’s long been devoid of fairness.

Snap Out of It and Get Prepaid Electricity

It’s time to snap out of it! Ditch that preconceived notion of prepaid electricity and try Pogo. You’ll get transparency, a fair deal, excellent service and the satisfaction of knowing that your money isn’t propping up long-time CEOs of an antiquated and exploitative industry. If you, your friends, and your friends’ friends all snap out of it, well, those exploitative energy giants will feel a different kind of snap.

Thanos Snapping Fingers

Added bonus: if you enroll now, we’ll throw in your first three days of electricity free, so there’s absolutely zero risk.

Long-term? On a bigger scale, with your help, we plan to reshape Texas and ensure that all energy companies – prepaid electricity or not – start acting ethically and sustainably. We could even blaze a trail to a sustainable grid – using Texas’s ample wind and solar potential.

But even if we don’t quite get there this year, we’re at least down to meet our millennial friends for lunch at some place that isn’t a soulless corporate chain with microwaved appetizers. Who’s up for some street tacos?
