    Company
    I have only been with them for a little over a year. I went through a broker ( ok, so that was my 1st time and scary), but with auto pay and a totally fixed rate from 1 kilowatt to 4000 kilowatts, I have never had a problem with their billing. I hate every electric company with rates for the 1st 500 kwatts, then up to 2000 kwatts, then a price for everything over 2000 kwatts. I love the flat rate. Don't really understand why so many people have issues with them. And I did a 3 year contract so I don't have to use powertochoose every year. Fwtank from Arlington TX

    NEVER A BILL

    I GUESS THAT THE SERVICE IS FINE, BUT AFTER SENDING OUT MULTIPLE MESSAGES TO THEIR CUSTORMER SERVICE I JUST CANNOT GET A BILL FROM THEM. THEY DO NOT SEND ANY AND IF I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT WHEN THE BILL IS DUE, GO TO THEIR WEBSITE AND OBTAIN ONE THAT WAY, I WOULD LIKE MANY OTHERS LIKELY BE FACING A DISCONNECT. I WILL AGREE THAT THEY NEED TO GET THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE ACT TOGETHER.

    Not worth the it!

    I had been loyal to them for 4 years since I bought my house. Recently this year they have fallen off in taking care of their customers. My contact ended the end of September. They said they sent me an email and letter 45 days before the contract ended. Didnt get the email, even tho they said that they sent it. I had received the letter in the first week of October, but the letter was dated in July. By then my rate had doubled, my bill was twice the usual amount! I switched to a new company that day.
    I get another bill 2 weeks later! 19.99c/kw!
    I call customer service, explain the situation. Theres nothing we can do. Thats all they kept saying. Go with another company

    The cheapest plan APG&E has is TrueClassic 36, with rates starting at 11.5. This is a 36 month plan.

    Where can I order APG&E electricity?

    Where can I order APG&E natural gas?


    APG&E does not have any natural gas plans

    What do customers think about APG&E?


    That depends on who you ask. There will always be someone who feels wronged by a company, no matter how good they actually are. The average APG&E customer review is 1.7 / 5 stars. Keep in mind, consumers will go out of their way to complain far more often than they will to give praise.

    Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?


    The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle. Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle. The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!
