Reviews from Columbus:

NGE will save you a lot of money if youre a smart consumer.

(5 / 5)

  A lot of these negative reviews are from people who dont know how to shop. If you sign up on a 3 cent rate of course your rate is going to skyrocket in month 4. Its like they are offering you a nearly-free trial and you want them to do it forever?! Sign up for a 12 or 24 month plan, shop around when your contract expires and enjoy the savings. Just dont get greedy and expect the low 3 month prices to be the rates you pay all the time.

Not much to complain about or praise.

  My experience with Commerce Energy has been uneventful. We signed up and haven't thought twice about our service. Everything has simply worked. We haven't had a problem with our bill or any other typical problem that many of our neighbors have with their providers. I congratulate Commerce for a job well done. :)

Initial promotion price great...long term savings not so much

  If you are interested in having a bill you have to pay monthly anyways help a charity then Xoom is a great option. It allows you to pay a bill you'd normally pay and donate to a cause you may care about. If you are interested in saving money then the only time you'll end up doing that is during the introductory offer on their flex plans. I had both gas and electric with Xoom and after months of comparing I found I would have been paying about half by simply going with my local supplier for electric (on both regular and 100% renewable plans) and there were many other options for better pricing on gas. I could have donated to the same charities Xoom participates in with the money I was saving monthly using a different supplier...probably could have donated more than what Xoom was from just my bill.

  So they came knocking on my door telling me how they could lower my bill by 80$ at least and saying if i did want to ever cancel then to just contact them and tell them my guys name and the cancellation fee was only 10$. WRONG. What they failed to tell me when i agreed to sign up was itd be 10$ Fee for every month left in my contract. And they in fact did not lower my bill one bit, when in all reality me being with them raised my bill by 30$ every month.when i was with the supplier for aep i used 1,448 kw and the bill was 176$ when i was using aep supplier. After i switched to this company i used 1,182 kw and my bill was 180$! Thats a 266 kw difference and yet it was the same price. They are liars and pure fraud. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR SCHEMES.

Switch right after promotional period

  I went from paying $0.05 a KWH to 0.12! Make sure you are paying attention when the promotional rate it over!

Stay away from these liars

(1 / 5)

  Their door to door salesman signed us up without consent and after I specifically told him not to. Both he and the the person on the phone lied about their rates. Now I am being charged for cancelling. Don't even let these liars through your door.

Misleading salesman

(1 / 5)

  This is just an example of not trusting salesmen and I have learned my lesson thanks to Frontier.

I was misled by the salesmen who was showing that I would have a cheaper rate it I used Frontier as my supplier. He very clearly pointed to a number on my past electric bill and said that was what I was currently paying as a rate. His rate quote was 7.7c which was cheaper than the number he pointed out, however my rate was actually significantly less than his cheaper quote. Now my bill has been 30 or more a month and I feel very upset about this situation.

I am reviewing my experience everywhere I can, to prevent anyone else from making a similar error. Thanks for the life lesson Frontier

Stay away

  This company is less than reputable.
After I moved my service to them I received several phone calls which were to complete my service transfer.
It was bs. They were attempts to alter my contract.

Customer service

(1 / 5)

  Ive been communicating via email with a Nicholas angert. He can not spell and does not know how to end a sentence. This looks very bad for the company
