Energy Assistance in Texas

Pogo Energy has agreements with these agencies
to provide energy assistance to Pogo customers

We're here to help
and so are local assistance agencies

Texas Utility Help Program

The program provides eligible households with financial payments made directly to Pogo Energy on your behalf. This program is funded by the federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and federal Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). Eligibility criteria and program applications are available on the Texas Utility Help Program website.

Local Energy Assistance Agencies

Local assistance agencies are available to help you in partnership with the Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), a federal program designed to aid eligible low-income customers with paying their electricity bills in Texas.

Here’s how you can check your eligibility

  • Find the local energy assistance agency in your county from the list below

    Call 2-1-1 on your mobile phone, and ask to connect to an energy assistance agency in your community

    Call 877.541.7905 (8am – 5pm, M-F) to connect to the CEAP service provider in your county

Deferred Payment Plan (DPP)

We’re committed to helping you out. We pre-approve all our customers for a Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) without any fees. DPP as energy assistance is interest or credit checks (up to $10 initially). This way, if your account balance ever goes negative and you need a little help paying that balance, we have you covered. Learn More >
