Commitment is a funny thing. A bad breakup can leave you wanting to give the finger to your ex. Especially if that ex happens to be your energy company.

Sure, some people want commitment more than anything (looking at you, Luke P. from The Bachelorette…) but for most people nowadays, it’s something that’s a bit scary. We get that! Still, whether you’re terrified of commitment or a Stage 5 clinger, we’ve got something for you.

That’s more than other Texas energy companies can say – between long-term contracts, cancellation fees and misleading marketing, they do everything they can to force commitment. If we had to draw a parallel to The Bachelorette – and, to be clear, we definitely don’t have to – they’d be up there with Luke P and Cam.

Pro tip: Never be Cam. Cam is the worst.

Sure, Cam and Luke P. both look fine on the surface, but if you had to commit to them long-term before even seeing all those red flags, how miserable would you be after even just a month? Once you get past the looks (which can be misleading!), you’ll discover hidden fees and shady business practices. Talk about baggage!

That’s why we’re more than happy to start things out casual. Load up your account with just $20 – no startup fees, no strings attached! – and you’re off and running with prepaid energy. Just take 60 seconds to sign up online, make your first charge up and boom, we’re hooking up…

…your electricity on the same day. Get your mind out of the gutter!

Either way, we’re fine starting this thing off real casual. Don’t like us? No hard feelings – we’ll never charge a cancellation fee. Good luck finding a better energy company – spoiler: you won’t – we’re not going to try to force a connection that’s not there. You’re more than welcome to come back, though!

We’ve had plenty of customers go from casual fling to a soulmate-level relationship, too. We have hundreds of customer reviews and our *average* is five stars. Do you think anyone’s giving Cam five stars?

Nope. Again, Cam is the worst.

Why do we have all of those five star ratings? Simple: because we do everything we can to be the best energy company out there. Between our pledge to only provide 100% clean energy, our lack of hidden fees (which other prepaid energy companies make a ton of money on), our daily text alerts, Pogo Rewards, amazing customer support and nonstop Whataburger references on social media, we’d basically get every rose on an all-energy company version of The Bachelorette.

Still on the fence? Again, that’s fine! But we want to give this thing a go, so let us be your summer fling – and if things don’t go well, we won’t guilt you into staying around.

Hello Texans, welcome back to moving season: the busiest (and most stressful) time of the year. It’s estimated that 80% of all renters move between April and September, with June and July being the most popular months.

In Texas, that means sweat-drenched afternoons under the sun, trying to carry your old couch up a set of stairs into your new apartment. Here at Pogo Energy, we think you deserve some kind of reward for all of that effort, but we know that just getting all of your stuff into your new place is just the beginning.

Don’t forget to pivot!

You’ve probably heard all kinds of moving tips over the years – making a checklist, lifting with your knees, etc. – but here’s one you probably haven’t heard just yet: you should make the switch to prepaid energy once you get to your new place

Think about it, how much time did you actually spend in your new apartment before signing the rental agreement? Do you know how much energy you’re going to end up using in those first few months? Are the windows leaky? What temperature is your new fridge set to? Does your unit have energy efficient lights or plugs?

What it feels like to estimate your energy bill before even moving.

Not knowing those answers could cost you hundreds of dollars if you sign yourself into a long-term contract with one of the big guys. Between misleading offers, high rates and hidden fees, you’ll have no clue why your energy bill ends up being way higher than expected – or if you’re using more energy than you should be.

If you end up wanting to give your old energy company the finger on the way out, well, we wouldn’t blame you. In fact, we’ll help you do it.

No, not *that* finger.

With prepaid energy – when it’s done right, at least – you’ll know exactly how much you’re spending on your electricity as you’re spending it, and you’ll be able to adjust your usage on the fly. That extra money in your pocket can help you recoup whatever moving fees you racked up – or, if you guilted all of your friends into helping you move (looking at you, Steve), you can treat them to some Whataburger and know you’re not breaking the bank. Our customers save about $387 per year, and that’ll buy you quite a few honey butter chicken biscuits! And making the switch only requires about a minute of your time.

If David Schwimmer can do it, you can do it too.

It’s that easy: you sign up, you load up $20 or more and you get the power turned on the same day. And your first three days are free!

It literally takes less time than unpacking a box or setting up your Playstation or figuring out how to start your #MovingDay Instagram Story. Plus you get the peace of mind knowing that you’re dealing with a company that *averages* five star reviews. Our customers love us, how many other Texas energy companies can say that?

The other guys make you pay a deposit and/or a setup fee, and would charge you a crazy cancellation fee if you decided to switch after signing up. Why do that when you just paid to move all of your stuff plus paid your first month’s rent AND a new security deposit? Instead, just load up $20 into your account, and that $20 goes right to work for you – after those three free days, of course. Sure, prepaid means paying as you go, but it ends up saving you a bundle in the long run.

Not only do you get the satisfaction of knowing you’re not paying too much, but you’ll get to feel good about not giving any money at all to a company that couldn’t care less about you. The other guys *want* you to not find out about the leaky windows or inefficient lights that drive up your energy costs. Not us! We send you daily text alerts so you know exactly how much energy you’re using every day – and our blog has plenty of great tips for cutting that number down to save even more money. And then we reward you for saving money by giving you Pogo Rewards each and every month – which you can use to get things like discounts, food and more. So really, you’re doubling up on savings. Savings-ception!

That extra cash sure comes in handy when you’re moving, right? And you can also feel good about the money you *are* paying with us, since you’re also getting 100% clean energy. And you’re getting some of that money back through Pogo Rewards, too! Saving money and saving the world at the same time sure feels good, right?

You’re about to upgrade your living space, why not upgrade your energy provider as well? And when moving day finally comes, and you’ll feel just a little bit better when you carry that old dresser up six flights of stairs.

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 a 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 three 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.
