Cheap Electricity: The Difference in Electricity Pricing
Sick of opening your electric bill at the end of the month and nearly fainting when you see how much money you owe? Tired of feeling like your energy company is ripping you off? We can’t blame you for wanting cheap electricity. We all want to spend less money paying our bills.
But hold on a second. Cheap electricity isn’t a very straightforward concept. Suppose you’re paying a lot on your energy bills. In that case, it’s not nessisarily because of the electricity you’re getting – it’s because of the company you’re giving your money to.
Is cheap electricity worse than expensive electricity?
Absolutely not! It all comes from the same place and the same grid. Cheap energy is the same electricity you would get if you were to pay five times more. Your lights don’t flicker if you opt for “cheap electricity.” Cheap electricity usually has more to do with your provider and what they decide to charge. Keep your eyes open for some fees that are costing you more than you would pay with a different energy company.
Why is some electricity expensive?
Ever notice how many hidden fees are on your monthly bill? Things added to the bottom line that has nothing to do with your energy usage or the rates? The term hidden fees means extra money for big business electric companies.
You will pay more because the companies care far more about their profit margins than they do about you.
The cheapest rate doesn’t actually mean the cheapest electric service?
In an ideal world, you’d pick the cheapest rate. That would rock, right? But that’s not how it works.
Unfortunately, advertised rates are rarely what you end up paying. Between the hidden fees, astronomical deposits and rates that fluctuate depending on the time of day, (see: ‘free nights and weekends’ plans), your electricity won’t be cheap.

What you’re saying is, cheap electricity doesn’t exist?
Don’t call us cheap, but if you go with Pogo, odds are you’ll save a ton of money on your energy costs. For one, we have no hidden fees – ever! We also have no deposit with our prepaid electricity plan. Say goodbye to disconnect and reconnect fees. No more hidden rates, low balance fees or headaches. Just electricity.
Basically, the only reason why you don’t already have cheap electricity is that you’re dealing with the other guys’ B.S. You know, bill, shock! (And the other definition, too).
Either way, you’ve been paying for B.S. – and you shouldn’t have to. That’s why Pogo is here!
Wait, did you say pre-paid lights?
Good eye! Yes we did, but don’t fret – we’re different than the prepaid energy providers you’ve heard so much about. We don’t supplement our revenue with hidden fees. Instead, we give you a fair deal and promise to be transparent.
How else can Pogo help me save me money on my electric bill? Rates (and fees) are only part of the picture, the other part is your energy usage, something that the other guys won’t tell you about until your bill comes in. With Pogo, you’re in control. We send daily text alerts showing you how much electricity you’re using, which helps you save energy and money simultaneously!
Reducing your rates and cutting out fees is the closest thing you will find to cheap electricity.
