About Callmepower

We provide helpful and free advice for residential customers about their electricity and natural gas options to help them compare rates and save money on their energy bills.

Our Mission

Energy markets in states across the US started deregulating since the late 1990's, giving millions of Americans choice and the possibility to save money with their chosen energy supplier. However, only about one quarter of residential customers in deregulated states have chosen to switch to an alternate supplier, and many Americans don't realize that it is possible to switch suppliers and cut their energy bills. We help customers shop around and take control of their energy bills. 

Information is Power

An informed energy consumer is an empowered energy customer. We provide brief, practical information for customers in a hurry, as well as extensive and analytical articles for those who want more detailed explanations about energy markets.

Experts of the retail energy market

One of Callmepower's unique assets is our expert knowledge of energy, especially in the retail electricity & gas markets, as well as on the mechanisms that drive the electricity & gas prices. This knowledge has been acquired through academic training in leading universities, and experience in the field of energy.

Our Method

Callmepower's purpose is to bring customers information about retail energy suppliers. We do this through two main channels:

  • The web site: we provide objective and comprehensive information on a wide range of energy-related topics, with a focus on residential consumer needs. We offer tools such as the offer comparison tool, which enables you to see the offers from different suppliers and choose the one that suits you best. We also offer a consumption estimation tool. If you do not know your consumption, we can help you calculate it by taking information such as the size of your home, and the different appliances you use.
  • The call center (closed for now): call us directly, and speak with energy experts to understand how to reduce your energy bill.
