Covid-19 Electricity Relief Program
Great news, we’ve worked with the Public Utilities Commission and other energy industry leaders to provide financial assistance for those customers who have lost their job and need help keeping the lights on. If you have already filed for unemployment benefits, you also qualify for this energy assistance program. There’s a little work on your part…some paperwork (attestation from TWC, TWC approval letter, Pogo account number, ESI ID, etc.). Once you’ve successfully completed it, and you have qualified for the program, Pogo will receive notification that your service is protected from disconnect. Please call 866-454-8387, option 1, for more details (keep trying…they’re overwhelmed with an influx of calls).
The Public Utility Commission of Texas has published several FAQs regarding their response to the COVID-19 outbreak. These FAQs may be found on this official document. If you have additional questions, Pogo Care is here to help…Pogo does have your back.
