Ogres wanted!

The deregulation of electricity in Texas has brought over 2000 electricity rate offers to residential customers from over a 135 different providers, and the extra competition has lead the electric providers to get more and more creative with their contract terms. The average consumer just doesn't have the time or the wherewithal to find the right plan for themselves.

We've built a technological solution to this problem. Our systems find the rate program that makes the most sense for you, based on how much electricity you use, and when. It's something large commercial and industrial consumers have been doing for decades, but it's never been cost effective for anyone to do it for residential customers before. Until now.

Let's face it, shopping for electricity is about as exciting as a mayonnaise sandwich on stale whole wheat bread, and we're on a mission to ogre-haul how it is done. While we love our bots, it's the ogres that make the magic happen. We've got a great team of hard working, friendly people who actually enjoy coming to work. And we'd love for you to join us!
