Why a Prepaid Electricity Plan is Perfect For Texas Millennials
Do you experience dread every time you receive your electric bill? Avoid opening it? Push it to the back of the bill pile? It’s always a surprise as to what the amount due will be, and it’s not the good kind of surprise. We call it Bill Shock, BS, for short.
At Pogo, we have nightmares about Bill Shock. Ironically, if you are with a post-paid electric company, odds are it’s exactly what you’ve been experiencing. You may think prepaid companies aren’t for you. You may have heard about their sky-high prices, hidden fees, and dishonest rates. But Pogo is a different kind of company.
How can a pay-as-you-go electricity plan be so perfect?
Do you want to know (and control) how much you’re spending on electricity at any moment?
Do you want the flexibility of no contract?
Do you want a no-deposit provider?
Do you want 100% clean energy?
Do you want low rates with no markups or hidden fees?
Do you want a hassle-free experience that you can manage via an app?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, Pogo is the right provider for you.
At Pogo Energy, we think it’s time to kill an antiquated industry, and we believe millennials are just the group to do it.
Millennials want a technology-enabled experience that makes managing their power as easy as managing their coffee order. They want transparency and honesty – a fair price, no gimmicks. Many want the freedom and flexibility to choose and not be locked into a long-term contract. As a whole, they value clean energy and the positive impact it has on the environment. They don’t want old-school deposits or credit checks. Millennials aren’t high-maintenance, they just want a fair deal at a fair price, a hassle-free experience, and control over how much they spend and when they spend it. Pogo sees you, Millennials. And we get you.
Most energy companies are bad for customers & the planet
When was the last time you heard of an energy company treating someone right? (Pogo Energy notwithstanding, with our 4.9+ star reviews!) At Pogo, we’re committed to doing better and doing more than treating customers right – transparent pricing and no hidden fees. We also treat our planet right with 100% green energy at no additional cost. According to Rice University researchers, Texas is one of the few places in the world(!) with enough wind and sun to power the entire electric grid. We want to be at the forefront of the green energy movement. Whereas many traditional electric companies (and dishonest prepaid power companies, too) don’t pay mind to the planet. 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.
Pay-as-you-go electricity plan – done right
When done right, a pay-as-you-go electricity plan is perfect for taking control away from energy companies and giving it back to the people. We send daily alerts and don’t have any hidden fees. You always know how much electricity you are using and the money you are spending. 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 treat customers with respect. At Pogo, our goal is to provide that respect and fairness.
Ditch your preconceived notion of a prepaid electricity plan and ditch those providers that exploit you with their contracts, hidden fees, and high deposits. We at Pogo strive to be transparent and fair. You’ll get excellent service and the satisfaction of knowing that your money isn’t supporting an antiquated and exploitative industry. Pogo stands for doing right by the customer and the planet.
While we work towards this dream of making electric companies act ethically and sustainably, we hope you give Pogo a chance to show you how you can save on your electricity.
