Reviews from Carbon:

Friendly, Customer-Centered AND Green!

(4.9 / 5)

  We've been Green Mountain Energy customers for
about seven years now. The service has been
great, the billing a non-issue, and every time
our contract expires, when I call to get the
best new rate, the service reps are friendly
and set us up without a hassle.

Our rates have been slightly better or
comparable to TXU, but our customer service
experience has been FAR superior.

Not only that, but we are reducing our carbon
footprint by using wind and solar-generated
electricity, and every month, our bill reminds
us of the small but significant difference we
are making.

I'd recommend Green Mountain to anyone.

Love having the choice to go pollution free

(4.6 / 5)

  I've had Green Mountain for three years now and it's been great. Can't complain. They're the only company I can find that only does renewable energy and also offsets all of their carbon emission from their operations. Haven't had any issues with billing. It's been about the same price.

Green Mountain Energy - The Cleaner Choice

(3.8 / 5)

  Green Mountain Energy is the largest retail provider of cleaner electricity in the nation.
Last month I used 1,954 KWh of electricity which is the equivalent of 416 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions avoided and 463 automobile miles not driven.

I absolutely recommend Green Mountain Energy to others.

Claimed price was comparable...was NOT

(2.8 / 5)

  I switched to Green Mountain due to a conversation I struck up w/ one of their reps at some festival this summer. I was month to month with another provider, and the rep assured me that prices were comparable. I was too trusting...

After 1 month of a similar rate (~9 cents), it jumped to 12 cents, and I was just told that it will be 15 cents this month. A 60% increase - no thanks!

If you want to pay 60% more and delude yourself that you are saving the planet...go for it. My large (both physically and no doubt carbon consuming) house, where I park my SUV, sucks down way too much energy to pay that kind of premium for imagined intergalactic benefits.

As far the items I ranked high - the bill was nice to look at, and the people were very polite when I called and decided to cancel.
