Energy bills add up, and it can take a lot of time and industry knowledge to find the best plan out there. Who has time to shop around anyway? Enter Energy Ogre, a company founded by non-biased energy industry professionals who take the hassle out of finding the best electricity costs.
Founded in 2013, Energy Ogre matches customers with the correct rate programs offered by energy retailers in their area via their specific historical usage. The company doesn’t provide electricity itself; it’s more like Travelocity or Priceline — if William Shatner tucked you in at night.
Plus, Energy Ogre takes it one step further than those online businesses: It actually handles setting up service with a new provider, as well as future plans for its customers. You get to just sit back and relax while Energy Ogre gives you the concierge service you need to get the best out of this confusing field.
And with things heating up soon, there’s no better time to jump on board with Energy Ogre. Here are five reasons to sign up today:
You like saving money
Energy Ogre customers can save an average of $800 to $2,000 a year by signing up for a membership. That’s a savings of more than 40 percent.
“I am saving $200-plus a month on electricity bills!” says Cindy M. of Houston. Allyson N. of Arlington says, “This is the best thing I have ever done. My electric bills were between $350 and $700. Over the last three months since I have signed up, they haven’t been more than $125.”

These are industry experts you can trust
The team at Energy Ogre continually scours the industry to find all of the rates, updates, and changes made hourly in every deregulated market across the state. Plus, rates can change based on your electricity use.
Energy Ogre uses more math than most of us would care to use in a lifetime to analyze the Electricity Facts Labels (EFLs) for most of the providers in the state, then finds the best deals based on your individual electricity needs.
You receive service based on your home, not regional averages
Sign up with Energy Ogre, and you get to enjoy rates based on your actual energy usage. When you join, you provide some basic identifying information to Energy Ogre, and the team goes to work, comparing your current usage with historical data to understand how your personal energy use trends have changed over time.
They also determine how you use your energy throughout the day and week, and run those numbers against a supply curve that represents rates from literally hundreds of plans to find the best value available. As if that weren’t enough, the company keeps tabs on when your contract is up so your provider can’t raise your rate once it runs out.
The company is completely independent
Energy Ogre isn’t affiliated with any electricity provider, and none of those companies pays Energy Ogre to put in a good word to customers. That’s why Energy Ogre’s membership costs $10 a month, paid only by its customers.
In keeping with the company’s belief in saving you money, membership requires no contract. You can leave at any time, but most people stay on with Energy Ogre once they see a lower balance due on their electricity bill month after month.
They do it all for you
Because Energy Ogre acts as an electricity concierge — similar to travel agents, but for the energy industry — everything is done for you. You have to provide the same information you would to an electricity provider, such as Social Security Number or address, but that information is fully encrypted and sent securely. Energy Ogre can also set you up on autopay or direct draft with the energy provider.
Plus, when a new deal pops up in your area offering even more savings, Energy Ogre acts quickly and sends you a bill analysis, informing you that there is another savings opportunity. If you like what you see, all you have to do is click “yes” on the Energy Ogre website to take advantage of another savings opportunity.
Energy Ogre handles everything and switches you to the new provider. Plus, they keep you informed that the change has been made. You won’t notice any interruption in service.
