Winner of New Contest Could Receive $3,000 Cash Reward or One Year of Paid Electricity Bills

What’s better than helping a friend in need? In short, I’d say, “Helping a friend AND winning a huge prize!” 

By now you’re probably wondering how you can do both simultaneously. Thanks to Energy Ogre, you can help your friends, family, neighbors, and community through our Be Cool Refer-A-Friend Contest and be in contention for a great prize. 

This contest winner will choose between $3,000 cash or 12 months of electricity bills paid for by Energy Ogre. Think of this as a win/win for you, your family, and friends. 

If you care about them, you should care about their budgets too, right? After all, sharing is caring! 

What is the contest, exactly?

This new contest offers a lucrative, budget-saving prize that could help every Texas family. During the contest period, which will run until July 31 at 11:59 p.m, Energy Ogre members will share their member referral code, which is personalized to their account, with neighbors and friends. 

The member who amasses the most referrals by the end of July will win the grand prize. 

Your personalized referral code is located in your Energy Ogre member portal account. Sign in here and then click the “Share with Friends” button to the right of the screen.

Our portal gives you the option to share an already-crafted message with your code directly to Facebook or via email. 

Energy Ogre does have a year-round Refer-A-Friend Program that encourages members to share their personalized referral code with others to sign up. The program rewards both the existing member and the newly-referred member with an incentive. 

Currently, that incentive is 10 Ogre points, which can be redeemed for gift cards OR for free month(s) of our service. Basically, you can always share your code and reap the rewards of growing Team Ogre.

What is the contest’s prize?

The winning member has two options to choose from depending on which incentive best fits their situation. The prize is: 

  • $3,000 cash reward
  • 12 months of electricity paid for by Energy Ogre

Not a Member? It’s Not Too Late to Compete 

Dating back to 2015, our executive team founded Energy Ogre because they wanted to help Texas homeowners capitalize on the state’s competitive electricity market. Years later, we created this contest to further our mission of ensuring no Texan overpays for electricity ever again.

As Texans join Team Ogre, our community of empowered consumers grows bigger and stronger. Many members save more than 40%, which often exceeds $1,000 in savings, in their first year alone. So we’ve launched this contest to give them an additional incentive to spread word of their savings.

So if you aren’t a member, it’s not too late to sign up! As soon as you submit your membership fee and finish your member enrollment, you can begin sharing your referral code! 

Considering the prize and the amount of savings you’ll experience, becoming a member and sharing your code is the best way to be cool and stay kind this summer!
