Chillin' with Pogo

Holy Jamoly – that’s definitely some Texas heat out there! We know, you’re likely feeling this heat in usage spikes from the temperature increases – Pogo did NOT raise your rates. Since it’s a heat wave, Pogo’s got your back and won’t be asking the TDU to disconnect any customers (just like we don’t request disconnects on nights, weekends or holidays).

When the temperatures dip down to a ‘normal’ level of heat, we will go back to normal so please remember to recharge your account before then and maintain a positive account balance to avoid disconnect. You can rechargeyour account at any time but please do make sure your balance stays above $0.00.

Recharge your account anytime.

By the way and did you know – your air conditioner can drive a 2 times (or more!) jump in your daily energy usage without you ever doing anything. Thanks so much mother nature…

Thanks for being a Pogo customer – maybe you can redeem Pogo Rewards dollars for some movie tickets or other indoor activities (borrow someone else’s A/C for a bit) to keep you chill for the summer…

Here are some other Pogo energy savings tips to help minimize the impact of this heat on your usage.

Energy Savings Tips


NO STANDING BY – kill the energy vampires and save up to $100 a year. Use a power strip for electronics so you can turn them all off.


STAY BRIGHT: use LED lightbulbs and save $10+ a year per bulb (20 bulbs, save $200 each year) – whoo hoo, that’s some easy savings!


STOP THE DRIP – fix the leaky faucet and save money + the world! Hot water leaks can cost you $9+ / year extra in energy usage.


TO THE BRIM – wash a full load of clothes when possible and save at least $18 a year


FILL’ER UP – keep your refrigerator and freezer full so they work more efficiently (but don’t overdo it)


AIR DRY – turn off the heated dry setting on your dishwasher and you can save $27+ a year

For more information on how to save energy, the US Department of Energy also has great tips on how to use your air conditioner more efficiently.

Please keep in mind following these tips it doesn’t guarantee your usage will be lower. While Pogo Energy does not increase rates due to the weather, the TDUs still have their energy rates that are out of Pogo’s control and included in your usage from Pogo Energy.
