“I’ve been using their services for four years or so, and I have had nothing but positive experiences with them — moving in/out, negotiating rates, renewing contracts, helping resolve issues caused by the electric companies, you name it,” says Energy Ogre member Anthony Baragas.

An expensive energy bill can throw a wrench in your budget. However, taking a closer look at your bill could help keep more money in your pocket. Here are some factors that might be leading to a higher bill:

  • Renewing your current electricity contract doesn’t always mean you’re getting the best rate. In general, a renewal rate is normally higher than the one you previously had, and if you shop around, you could get a better deal elsewhere.
  • You don’t have to wait until the end of a contract to switch electricity providers. If you find a rate that is much better than the one you’re getting or just better fits the way you use electricity now, you can make a switch.
  • Unnecessary late fees can be avoided by making your payments on time.
