Two Minutes Can Save You Hundreds, Maybe Thousands, of Dollars!

Excuse me, can we have two minutes of your time?  Just 120 teeny tiny seconds to find out if you are overpaying for electricity in Texas?

It takes just two minutes to try out our Savings Calculator. We understand those two minutes could be spent making your bed, microwaving a Hot Pocket, or even trimming your toenails. But, wouldn’t it be great if those two minutes could save you a bundle on your home electricity?

Go ahead, put down those toenail clippers (slowly), and head over to Energy Ogre’s free Savings Calculator!  This calculator is part of Energy Ogre’s ongoing effort to ensure all Texans in deregulated electricity markets are getting a fair deal at a fair price.

It’s Not Too Good to be True

You’ve probably heard the stories or seen the reviews. Energy Ogre saves our members up to 50% of what they were paying. However, we understand there are still some out there that are a little skeptical about our program.

Hey, we get it, you’ve been burned. And you don’t want it to happen again. That’s why we decided to become your personal electricity advocate and manager. Although, contrary to popular belief, ogres actually LOVE being helpful. As long as we keep their tummies full.

Ok, now go use your remaining minute and a half to check out our free tool: Savings Calculator. It calculates what rate you are currently paying. Then, it compares your rate to the thousands of electricity plans currently on the market.

Finally, there’s no commitment. Energy Ogre is so confident you’ll love our service that we allow our members to cancel anytime—no questions asked. In fact, we even offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

How Does the Savings Calculator Work?

STEP 1: Grab the most recent copy of your bill

Step 2: Enter in your home’s information

-How much electricity (specifically kWh) you used
-Amount you paid
-Bill due date (note: if you are on average billing, use the amount you would have paid if you weren’t in the average billing program)
-Select if the heating in your home is gas or electric
-Enter your ZIP code
-Enter your current retail electricity provider

STEP 3: Click the “calculate savings” button

STEP 4: Prepare to have your mind blown

Here’s Where the Magic (err, Math) Happens

The rate we calculate for you is your current effective rate, which means that’s the price you’re paying per kWh you use. A chart will show you how much you could save with the current plans on the market.

This is calculated by predicting how much energy you are expected to use over the next 12 months from the month of usage that was put in. The rest of the months are calculated from how your usage compares to the average energy consumer.

90% of Texans overpay for electricity—fact. But not everyone… so if our calculator sees we can’t save you cash, we will tell you AND give you kudos for picking a great plan!

However, in the event we can save you money, you’ll see another chart with 10 plans and how much you would save with each one. Depending on what time of year you run the calculator, the options can include plans for 3,6,9 and 12 months.

The graph above illustrates what you are currently paying (the red line) versus what you could be paying as an Energy Ogre member. I know… crazy, right?

When selecting a plan for you, we look for the one that keeps your bill as low as possible throughout the term of the contract. This is why some of our members get put into 12 month plans.

Don’t forget: If you have questions about the results or our service, you can click the chat option in the bottom right corner of the Savings Calculator window and a friendly ogre will be waiting to answer your burning questions. you can also send us an email directly at here!
