I have enjoyed being with Constellation since I moved back to Houston. Never in my lifetime have I ever had such a lower priced Electric bill since living in Houston. AT one time HL& P-"RELIANT was the monopoly here in Houston. They charged more for my utility bill in my small apt as opposed to my larger home IN NW. I am so glad RELIANT energy now has other competitors.

Order was easy. Account transfer no problem. First bill was higher than EFL facts said it was going to be. The distribution charge from the electric distributor was about $10 higher than what EFL said. Called Constellation and asked why, they said distribution charges had gone. They went up the first month after I switched. False advertising by Constellation.

I had no issues with billing which is usually the cause to hate them. I had an issue with signing up since I had my credit locked. I wish they would tell online you who they use to check your credit so people can unfreeze or unlock their credit before hand. Like all electric company's they get you in with a good rate then charge a lot more to renew, but all companies do that. All that being said it was a good experience with them and I wish I could stay with them but on to the next with a better rate.

Constellation Energy disconnected my service without properly notifying me. When you call Customer Service, they will verify that they have the right phone number for you three times, but no one will take 1 minute to actually use it to call you, even if you owe them money. It just happens. No letter, no email, no phone call. Nothing. It's easier for them to just let your service get disconnected. Then, of course, you'll contact them to pay your bill. It's easier for them that way. They don't have to lift a finger. Very poor treatment.

I have been very unsuccessful at changing the plan to a lower rate. the website is useless for choosing a new plan.

We signed up with Constellation from Reliant due to the rate being lower. However, their fee to Centerpoint is higher which is really never spelled out. It's very difficult in comparing all of the providers since they all use a different format to explain their plans. Our first month my bill was higher than last year with Reliant. Hopefully we'll see an improvement during the hot summer months.

Buried somewhere in the fine print is a clause that allows them to charge me way more than I thought because I am a very high volume electricity consumer. So my bill ended up being twice as much as my previous provider who charges the fee they quoted (9.4cents/kw) regardless of the amount used. Consequently; I will be paying the cancellation fee and switching to another provider.

First things first, both reps I spoke with during the hour I was on the phone were professional and very courteous. I believe Constellation did what they could to "fix" the issue for which I called (read on).Today is the first day of my relationship with Constellation so I have no feedback other than the phone reps handled my issue to my satisfaction. I am happy to update my review if possible when I have some time with Constellation under my belt.I signed up for a plan with decent rates, $0.00 monthly charges. The "thank you" email I received from Constellation showed the exact plan BUT with 3.49 monthly fee. I spent an hour on the phone with Constellation, 2 reps. First rep said the $3.49 is an Oncor fee (I get that, but the plan said $0.00). The second rep apologized for the confusion and credited my account $10 and took the URL I used to select them and promised to send to marketing folks.I was told that every plan will have an Oncor charge, and I believe that. I would not have a problem with this if the Constellation plan I selected did not show $0.00.The hour spent with Constellation on this weekday cost me more than the total I will pay them for the $3.49 charge over the couse of this plan term. But, in my experience, when one thing is wrong then other things are probably wrong - I have no reason to think that... yet.

I chose StarTex Power from several providers in the area. Their rates seem competitive and my service has been great. However, after my initial 6 month contract expired, StarTex never bothered to notify me or ask me to renew. They simply let my contract expire, started charging me a higher, non-contract rate. It's a shady practice and I feel like they've risked losing me as a customer for the $25 they swindled from me. As soon as I renewed, my rate dropped again but clearly I'll need to remember to renew early to avoid their expiration scam.

I've been with them for almost 5 years. I made a mid-plan switch in May/Jun '09, when rates sank and I was tied into their 3 yr (roughly $.14/kWh rate) and got into another 3 year for (then) $.119/kWh. I had a bit of back and forth with them after the switch as their billing department didn't get the word that i was in a new plan. After 2 months, they got it straight. The only thing was I allowed them to continue billing the CC as I didn't want to discontinue and draw their ire. Shortly after I noticed that they never updated my new 3 yr plan 'end' date. After I called, they told me it was May/Jun of 2012. You can bet your last buck that I'll be on top of the change so that I'm not thrown into the non-plan summer rate. For others to note (but check, i'm not sure if it's law or the company's position) - but they told me I could submit my 'switch' request 15 days before the last period started). Be sure to check, don't take my word on this.

Overall-I'd definitely refer them!

I have been a Star Tex customer for at least two years. My contract is up for renewal, and at first I was going to renew with Star Tex; but I, too will have to switch providers. When I shop for rates, I am seeing prices as low as 8.8 cents per KWH from some companies, with most in the 9.2 to 9.5 cent range. I switched from Reliant because Star Tex had such good rates. I have never had any customer service issues with Star Tex, but I am frankly shocked to see their rates are now on the high end of the spectrum (10.7 per kwh). I can even get better rates now with Reliant!I see several postings on that ratings site from customers who had the same experience as me. They loved the service but are leaving for better rates. I am not saying Star Tex has to be the lowest; but they are simply no longer competitive. It's a hassle to have to set up a new account with a new provider, but this price hike is too much to take.

I have been a Star Tex Power customer for the past 2 and half years. Although their rates were a little higher than their competitors their billing and customer service was always great.
However, my 12 month fixed rate contract recently expired and my 8.750 rate went to 13.390 on my next billing cycle. Evidently they don't mind gouging their current customer base with an excessively higher rate and really don't mind retaining current customers! I felt taken advantage of (screwed to us the popular venacular). Obviously, I went with one of their competitors renewing with a 7.9 fixed rate. Good bye and good riddens Star Tex Power. I hope you figure out that treating your current customer base fairly and equitablely is what keeps you in business.

I have been with StarTex for several years now, have not had any major problems and would gladly renew with them if they offered a more favorable rate . My complaint is that every time my contract expires, their rates offered are not as competitive as some other companies. I typically get a 12 month contract and use approximately 500-1000 kwh per month. In their offer for renewal, the additional minimum charge for low usage is now being applied for usage below 1000 kwh instead of below 500 kwh, which drives my effective rate higher. I am once again being forced to evaluate other offers and will likely go with a different company if their renewal offer is the best they can do.

I've been a Startex customer for several years now, Last year I willing signed up for another 12 months.

At least much better than a former company known by me as Second to last Choice (First Choice) but... Since being bought out by Constellation it seems this luxury will cost me more. or will it? Startex give me a reason why I should stay? Last year your company allowed a digit drop. This year I waited to see this offer and....nothing, well except much higher prices. I will be calling to see if you can offer something to keep a customer. If not I guess you will leave me no choice but to jump the fence and swim with the sharks again.

Will look at other companies to try to improve rate for a while and make up some of what I have lost with this higher rate I got stuck with. Not afraid to switch and may even consider staying if rate is reasonalbe on month to month but it doesn't look like they are beating others or even close even on 3 or 6 month plans Startex appears too high compared to others.

Pricing seems less competitive after Constellation acquired StarTex. After several years with StarTex we have switched to another provider for a lower rate on this renewal. StarTex changing the minimum usage fee from $4.99 for less than 500 kwh to $9.99 for less than 1000 kwh was yet another reason to switch. During the months between A/C and heat we use less than 1000 and more than 500 kwh and it's an insult to be gouged. The folks from Maryland can go back from whence they came. And shame on the Texans (if there actually were any to begin with) for selling out! I guess the founders made their money and ran.

I was moved to Constellation Energy some years ago, I initially signed up with NewTex Power and I guess Constellation bought them out. I have always been happy with this provider, even as a month-to-month customer, and even when we had the winter freeze here in Texas earlier this year. I was on a contract when I initially signed up, but once my contract ended I went month-to-month. For YEARS I have had no problems. The last 2 months I received a bill for over $600 and this month almost $800!! I called 2 days ago to get a fixed rate and the system was down. The agent and I discussed the rates and plans and I was ready to make it happen, BUT Constellation's service was down, so the agent said he would call back, he also gave me his info & ext. to call back if I didn't hear from him. Today I made the call again, but got Luis...he told me the previous rep was busy but he could help me. By the end of the conversation, he was literally mocking me, not letting me get a word in, and talking to me like I was a child. I asked to speak to the rep I was originally working with and he told me he would pass the word along, only before letting me know "he's going to tell you the same thing I just did, and that's why you should accept what is given to you at the moment it is offered!" and hung up on me! After 14 years of being with this energy company, it took one unprofessional act for me to walk away. It is not even worth my time to try to call and speak to someone else. I just changed energy companies. As an Army Veteran who has heard, put up with, and been through A LOT, I can honestly say Luis is the worst customer service rep I've ever spoke to in my life. Sadly, because of this instance I will never go back to Constellation.

Let me preface this by mentioning my experience in 2020 when renewing my service. The customer service agent was excellent, walking me through prices and selecting a plan that best fit my needs based on my usage going back to 2018. When I contacted customer service to renew my contract in 2021 I requested a rate that works for me based on my usage, and was quoted 10.2 cents based on 1000 kwh. My usage usually hovers between 400 - 700 kwh, and I should have checked with him what the 500 kwh rate was... but going on my previous experience I trusted that it shouldn't be significantly higher than 10.2 cents.It was 14.2 cents... a far cry from my previous rate of 11.3 cents. Did the customer service agent lie? No. Did he clarify with me that his 10.2 c/kwh rate is nowhere close to the actual rate that I'd be paying according to my historical usage? No. I felt it was a deceitful tactic to say the least.Moral of the story, don't make my mistake. Double check the EFL *before* you agree to renew.

We had constellation for two years. Paid on time, never had to actually talk to anyone and Oncor did all the work if there was a power outage. So we switched providers for a better deal. My wife accidentally forgot to pay the bill the 2nd to last month. I got no phone calls, no emails, zero notification until a pink slip showed up saying we had 10 days to pay or they're cutting off service - WOW. So I immediately paid the past due amount only to have a notification from their collections department show up two days later. Dude - I have a perfect payment history, its a flipping pandemic, you made zero attempt to contact me - this was such a sleazy move. I am so, so, so thankful we made the choice to leave. So they'll be great, just don't make any mistakes or you'll be dealing with their nonsense. Seriously - one missed payment with a perfect two year history. If I were constellation I would have called just to check on me to be sure everything was okay since it is so out of character. I cannot stress enough that I would not recommend constellation to anyone.

Understand I put in a new unit 2 years ago. Not sure i will wait 11 months. I may pay the early penalty.

My mother paid her bill electronically through her bank's bill pay. Constellation lost the payment. She sent them a computer printout. They said it had to come from the bank, not a computer printout. She went to the bank, they gave her proof and we sent this in. She received an email stating that this was not acceptable. She is elderly, disabled and caring for a dying spouse. They have put her through hell because they screwed up. It's not her job to continue to help them find something she has proven twice she paid. She's never paid a bill late in her life. Customer services just keeps apologizing, meanwhile a 78 year old lady is in tears over this and it's still not resolved.

I am very dissatisfied with my Constellation experience. Constellation switched my energy provider without my consent or prior knowledge after I filled out some paperwork that one of your representatives told me would just send a price quote to me. I am very involved in tracking my bills, budgeting, emails, etc., and so I caught it quickly. But the idea that this may be happening to other people who arent as focused on keeping track of these things is deplorable. I appreciate that the switching back process was simple, but I was astonished at how regular my situation seemed to those I contacted. No one I spoke to seemed to think that this was a big issue like I did. Will not be recommending Constellation to anyone.

We used Constellation for our last choice of electric providers and decided to renew for THREE years unfortunately this year. The price increase has been alarming and reaching customer service has been a time consuming nightmare. You CAN NOT reach CHAT on their website and must WAIT to speak with a rep. So far I've held for 16 minutes hearing what Constellation uses to SELL it's services. However fulfilling those services are quite questionable. We would like a A/C service call right now - it's included the high cost of their service - but it would appear scheduling that "benefit" is not easy. I'm hearing due to the HIGH VOLUME of calls blah, blah. I have tried to go online as suggested - but all you can do there is update your account and RENEW...NOT a happy customer.........it's now been 29 minutes and the loop goes on and on. OH, got a rep. guess what??? To get A/C service you must call their HOME CARE number - NO WHERE IS THIS LISTED on the website or on monthly invoice. So now I am in que AGAIN!

If they bill you wrong they still want you to pay what they billed you. Even though they messed up. They will gladly fix it for you. But it will show as a credit 1 to 2 billing cycles later. What kind of company charges their customers for the company's mistake? It would take a lot for me to refer someone to Constellation Energy now. After this experience. Also. Don't call on the phone. I spent almost 1.5 hours trying to get through on the phone. Chat online I waited 5 and you get a transcript of the chat. They do have some of the lowest rates available though.

On 7/30/18 we began service with Constellation. After many calls in Aug & Sept asking for our bills, we finally received our 1st bill. I paid it through my bank on BillPay. A week later I received a new bill, it showed my previous balance as unpaid, so I called and the rep said my ACH/Electronic BillPay payment was NOT received. So I contacted my bank obtained all of the proof the rep said I needed and I submitted all of it to Constellation. 3 day later I was notified by email that the proof they requested and received was not sufficient and they would NOT be able to credit my account. I called and the rep said they don't deal with those type of calls and the best he can advise is for me to email customer service. I emailed once every day for 4 days. Finally I received a response. It was the exact same response as the initial one (submit all forms again). Back to square one I resubmitted everything they asked for and their response was a 2nd notice of disconnect. It's been a horrible experience and now I have to deal with my bank, dispute the charge and pay the bill again to avoid disconnection. Meanwhile a 3rd bill has showed up! their billing seems to be very delayed I received 3 months of bills in 3 weeks. Will most likely pay to get out of the 1 year contract and go elsewhere. Horrible customer service to say the least. I have NEVER experienced anything like it.

With my previous provider, I always paid on time with the exception of 3 times in 5 years when I made arrangements to pay at the end of the month due to unexpected bills. In Oct I I had car repair bills plus medical bills. I went to the constellation website and filled out a form requesting that I pay my bill 2 weeks later. I received a email back from constellation that it would be okay to do that. Being 73 and on Social Security I was very grateful that I could do that. In the past week before the extended due date I have received 2 phone calls from Constellation and a DISCONNECT NOTICE! I called the customer support number and asked them why they were harrassing me. They said that was their policy regardless if arrangements were made. I doubt that I will renew my contract with Constellation.

Would not use again. Price to leave is $78 even when your contact is over. Got a great electricity rate so I chose this company over bigger names but when it was time to renew the offer they made was no longer competitive so I switched. Turns out an "Oncor Electric Company Surcharges Approved" showed up on my last invoice, even though I was out of contract. The price to switch electric companies varies and in my opinion, anything over $20 is way too much, especially for something automated. Exact actual price to end service is not disclosed in terms of service, only a mention that a fee may be changed.Also had some billing problems - signed up for auto-pay but didn't charge my card for some reason one month (even though they had the 4 months prior) then called to say my bill was overdue, and I had to go online and pay again. Later appologized via automated email.

StarTex gives you 15 days to pay your bill and then delays crediting your payment for about 6 days in my experience.

Startex is a company that will be sufficient when everything is running fine. However, I had a payment sent a few days late (no late payments for previous 10 months), and they cancelled my power WITHOUT any notification. The power was shut off when my wife was home with our newborn baby. They threatened to keep the power off until I transferred payment to them, but then customer service completely fell apart when I broke off my contract. They keep calling for their final payment despite breaking the contractual obligations of warning us about service termination. Since that time they have added $300 more in fees. Be careful, this company is nice when you are paying on time, but miss one payment, and they will bring the house down on you!

I've called several times asking to speak to a supervisor regarding my account, to no avail. I just want to speak with somebody with a brain in their head that cares about not losing a customer. In such a competitive environment, it seems they don't care at all about losing a customer, in spite of my willingness to pay the $350 cancellation fee. Get it through your skulls: I'm going elsewhere unless you work with me. Business 101. Clearly the CS reps don't care about their company or the future (or lack thereof) of their jobs.

Would like to add, much like many services today, it's easy as pie to sign up, but once they've got you, good luck dealing with their CS. Nowhere on their website makes it easy to change payment options, renew or otherwise.

I was originally attracted to this company by their low rates and I have had service with them for over 2 years. That is until today, due to the Christmas holidays I was unable to make my payment due on the 2nd of Jan. So I figured I would make it with my next paycheck on the 15th. However, by the time I paid my power had been cut off and now I'm facing massive connect and disconnect fees. When I spoke to a customer service manager "NORA" she told me those were their policies and quite frankly I got the feeling she could care less about my disconnected service. In an effort to get some kind of reaction from her I even went as far as to tell her that it may be time to change electric companies to which she replied "I'm sorry you feel that way." Now I can go up to 2 days without power. Not sure if they know, but its "WINTER" AND I HAVE 3 CHILDREN!! LESSON LEARNED: With this company you are nothing more than an account number. They are quick to disconnect and leave you dark!

I've had StarTexPower for a while now. Their promotional or beginning rates are good but since I moved to the new place, the price has gone up significanly (avg 13.69 cents, which is much higher than the initial price). Although I did not select the fixed option, increase from 5.2 cents to 13.69 cents is just too much. The first impression I got from this company was that they would care about such significant increase or maybe advise their customers of the high increase in price... but that's not the case.

Also, in this day and age, their bill payment system seems to be very outdated. Launches into a separate window, no email confirmation, etc.

Time to start looking for another provider...unfortunately.

I've been a StarTex supporter since 2008. They were awesome - had the lowest rate, and offered great customer service.However, they were purchased by another company and things have gone downhill with their billing. I was double billed once (which was actually Oncor's fault) but it took months to straighten out because of StarTex's inability to generate a bill in a timely manner. Even though I had no bill to even pay, I got collection notices and daily phone calls about not paying the erroneous bill. Most recently, I moved, and even though I was assured my rate would stay the same since I stayed in the same service area, my rate went up 1.45 cents per kWh. I called and they generated a new bill, except kept the same rate. I called again, and they generated a new bill, but this time, they only gave me a credit for less than half of my usage. I had received a new meter, and they only credited what was on the new meter. My contract is up in less than a month and will be finding a new provider. It's a shame they were bought out and the customer service has gone down hill so much. As they say "StarTex, where customer service is always free" - what they don't say is that it's not always right.

After 4 months later I found out that they do not even support solar. I ended up paying my all hiked-up bills. Their customer service never calls me back. Even though they have everything recorded in the system but they have no respect for their customers to at least return their calls in a timely manner.

Rates extremely misleading. Had short time to sign up for a provider. Constellation promised competitive rates. What a joke! Ended up paying over 40 cents per KWH! Instead of one bill per month, they did 4 in about 9 weeks so we had to pay the minimum charge every 2-1/2 weeks instead of monthly. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

I cancelled this service in April 2022 to go Solar. Part of the Solar program was to receive a $1000 energy credit. For some reason the payment was sent to Constellation Energy by mistake. I verified that my account was closed and no money was due and in fact they showed the $1000 credit. As of today 10-3-2022 I spoke to Joseph ID# C991358. It took me 5 different calls to reach a supervisor by the way. Joseph said that the payment will take an additional 4-6 weeks before I would receive these funds. He confirmed that my account closed April 16, 2022 and they received the $1000 on August 4, 2022 by mistake. I am writting this review to complain about this company keeping my $1000 for well over 2 months time and jerking me around each and every time I call to see where this money is. This is the worst energy provider and worse in customer service that I have ever dealt with. I want this review to hurt this company to the tune of keeping my refund for over 2 months of my time and effort calling in to inquire. Do not use Constellation Energy for anything. they are the absolute worst energy provider out there.

I confirmed my contract start date in early July to match up with the end of my previous contract. I received multiple notices confirming the contract. After a month without a bill, I called, was told there was a database error and that it was fixed. A month later nothing had changed. I called in to be told my account was not active despite never being given notice of a delay or cancellation in my order. The service had defaulted to that of the apartment complex with disconnection fees because Constellation failed to provide service as agreed. I never received an explanation as to how this happen and once I was actually told they weren't providing service, I closed out the account to seek other service.

The price, if they actually provided service, was decent.

Find another company. I can not record this enough.

Lets start at the plan. I called them to confirm and asked questions, I was told they charge buy the KWH, whatever I use, I get charged for, they confirmed the rate, so signed up as my previous contract was ending and they offered nothing at market rates. Set up to start, on the last day of my previous plan and the day my meter sends in its readings.

First bill come n a few days later for 150 bucks. I call them, they try to tell me my plan has a min charge of 159, Nope, then that I am prepaying for future usage, nope, so after 4 people finally get someone with average intelligence who can see it is wrong at my bill is correct.

After he first full month I get another bill. Again, charging incorrectly, charging me for almost twice my usage. Again I call, again chuck and jive. After multiple people finally get Simeon who can see something is off, but can not fix it. Get another and he stats telling me I clearly am stupid and can not understand math (side not, I hold a BS in mathameyics and a BS and MS in engineering, AND a MBA in finance, so clearly I have an ok understanding of math. After I get a claimed supervisor I get it partly corrected, atleast it is within 20 bucks of what it should be, bit I am done, 50 bucks to cxl worth every penny.
It 8 days into my moth and I start with another company. I get a bill for 748.24 cents. For 8 days and a 50 dollar fee.

Again, speak to several people, finally get s energy who comes up with 128 bucks, more than my average monthly bill the last 2 years.

I ask of an accounting, and a corrected bill.

I never got it, called again.

Now. Get a late notice. Call again, they refuse to send an invoice or tell me where they get the Balance due.

Still waiting.

Got another letter, but still no accounting. I pod it just t be done with this.

I highly recommend you find another company.

Called July 19 about 3PM with the intention of leaving GEXA. Plans and most reviews were pretty good. I asked the agent three very simple questions. Took 20 minutes to extract those answers. The questions were these. What is the price per kwh at 1000, 2000, and 3000. Was told the numbers would vary from the quoted rates. So I asked the questions another way. What is the highest kwh rate I would pay between 1000 and 2000, 2000 and 3000, and 3000 and 4000? Finally got answers after just flat insisting on them. Final question was: Will you send me those quotes in writing. Agent stated they would only send the 1000 kwh quote. Spoke to supervisor Daniel Garza. Again, went around the world to finally get the quotes I needed. However, would not agree to put the maximum kwh price in writing. Really disappointed in the lack of transparency on these calls. Would have signed up in 10 minutes if getting answers were not the equivalent of pulling a wisdom tooth whose roots were wrapped around the jawbone. What a shame. Was prepared to become a Constellation customer. Guess I should have tempered my expectations before I called. Really sad.

I was not happy with my electric company, because my bills were running around $300+ a month. I spent $4,000 getting my A/C unit updated, which was supposed to save me on my electric bill. A salesman came to the door pushing Constellation and showed me numbers that guaranteed that they could cut my bill by at least $100/month. It was mumbo jumbo about how they figured the bill differently in the way that Texas New Mexico Power got its cut. I thought I would give them a try. Worst decision I ever made. The first bill was cheaper than my old plan. After that, it went up and up. My bill now for JANUARY is $387. That is the highest bill ever for my one-story, 3 bedroom house. I was going to cancel, and they informed me I had a 2-year contract. That's not correct, as I would never sign up for that long with a company I am trying out. Somehow, they slipped that in without my permission. What a rip-off. I will never use this company again. Don't believe whatever they tell you.

Today I made the call again, but got Luis...he told me the previous rep was busy but he could help me. By the end of the conversation, he was literally mocking me, not letting me get a word in, and talking to me like I was a child. I asked to speak to the rep I was originally working with and he told me he would pass the word along, only before letting me know "he's going to tell you the same thing I just did, and that's why you should accept what is given to you at the moment it is offered!" and hung up on me! After 14 years of being with this energy company, it took one unprofessional act for me to walk away. It is not even worth my time to try to call and speak to someone else. I just changed energy companies. As an Army Veteran who has heard, put up with, and been through A LOT, I can honestly say Luis is the worst customer service rep I've ever spoke to in my life. Sadly, because of this instance I will never go back to Constellation.

Does not allow you to track you usage. You will get an energy bill every month that shows twice what you actually used. They claim to use Smart Meter Texas and all you have to do is make an account and you can track you usage. Unfortunately, Smart Meter Texas will not accept Constellation's PUCT Certificate number, the ESIID, or any one of the twelve different company names they use for the same address in Houston. I am happy to report this deplorable company to ERCOT.

Constellation Energy disconnected my service without properly notifying me. When you call Customer Service, they will verify that they have the right phone number for you three times, but no one will take 1 minute to actually use it to call you, even if you owe them money. It just happens. No letter, no email, no phone call. Nothing. It's easier for them to just let your service get disconnected. Then, of course, you'll contact them to pay your bill. It's easier for them that way. They don't have to lift a finger. Very poor treatment.

I confirmed my contract start date in early July to match up with the end of my previous contract. I received multiple notices confirming the contract. After a month without a bill, I called, was told there was a database error and that it was fixed. A month later nothing had changed. I called in to be told my account was not active despite never being given notice of a delay or cancellation in my order. The service had defaulted to that of the apartment complex with disconnection fees because Constellation failed to provide service as agreed. I never received an explanation as to how this happen and once I was actually told they weren't providing service, I closed out the account to seek other service.

The price, if they actually provided service, was decent.

Find another company. I can not record this enough.

Lets start at the plan. I called them to confirm and asked questions, I was told they charge buy the KWH, whatever I use, I get charged for, they confirmed the rate, so signed up as my previous contract was ending and they offered nothing at market rates. Set up to start, on the last day of my previous plan and the day my meter sends in its readings.

First bill come n a few days later for 150 bucks. I call them, they try to tell me my plan has a min charge of 159, Nope, then that I am prepaying for future usage, nope, so after 4 people finally get someone with average intelligence who can see it is wrong at my bill is correct.

After he first full month I get another bill. Again, charging incorrectly, charging me for almost twice my usage. Again I call, again chuck and jive. After multiple people finally get Simeon who can see something is off, but can not fix it. Get another and he stats telling me I clearly am stupid and can not understand math (side not, I hold a BS in mathameyics and a BS and MS in engineering, AND a MBA in finance, so clearly I have an ok understanding of math. After I get a claimed supervisor I get it partly corrected, atleast it is within 20 bucks of what it should be, bit I am done, 50 bucks to cxl worth every penny.
It 8 days into my moth and I start with another company. I get a bill for 748.24 cents. For 8 days and a 50 dollar fee.

Again, speak to several people, finally get s energy who comes up with 128 bucks, more than my average monthly bill the last 2 years.

I ask of an accounting, and a corrected bill.

I never got it, called again.

Now. Get a late notice. Call again, they refuse to send an invoice or tell me where they get the Balance due.

Still waiting.

Got another letter, but still no accounting. I pod it just t be done with this.

I highly recommend you find another company.

Let me preface this by mentioning my experience in 2020 when renewing my service. The customer service agent was excellent, walking me through prices and selecting a plan that best fit my needs based on my usage going back to 2018. When I contacted customer service to renew my contract in 2021 I requested a rate that works for me based on my usage, and was quoted 10.2 cents based on 1000 kwh. My usage usually hovers between 400 - 700 kwh, and I should have checked with him what the 500 kwh rate was... but going on my previous experience I trusted that it shouldn't be significantly higher than 10.2 cents.It was 14.2 cents... a far cry from my previous rate of 11.3 cents. Did the customer service agent lie? No. Did he clarify with me that his 10.2 c/kwh rate is nowhere close to the actual rate that I'd be paying according to my historical usage? No. I felt it was a deceitful tactic to say the least.Moral of the story, don't make my mistake. Double check the EFL *before* you agree to renew.

Called July 19 about 3PM with the intention of leaving GEXA. Plans and most reviews were pretty good. I asked the agent three very simple questions. Took 20 minutes to extract those answers. The questions were these. What is the price per kwh at 1000, 2000, and 3000. Was told the numbers would vary from the quoted rates. So I asked the questions another way. What is the highest kwh rate I would pay between 1000 and 2000, 2000 and 3000, and 3000 and 4000? Finally got answers after just flat insisting on them. Final question was: Will you send me those quotes in writing. Agent stated they would only send the 1000 kwh quote. Spoke to supervisor Daniel Garza. Again, went around the world to finally get the quotes I needed. However, would not agree to put the maximum kwh price in writing. Really disappointed in the lack of transparency on these calls. Would have signed up in 10 minutes if getting answers were not the equivalent of pulling a wisdom tooth whose roots were wrapped around the jawbone. What a shame. Was prepared to become a Constellation customer. Guess I should have tempered my expectations before I called. Really sad.

I was not happy with my electric company, because my bills were running around $300+ a month. I spent $4,000 getting my A/C unit updated, which was supposed to save me on my electric bill. A salesman came to the door pushing Constellation and showed me numbers that guaranteed that they could cut my bill by at least $100/month. It was mumbo jumbo about how they figured the bill differently in the way that Texas New Mexico Power got its cut. I thought I would give them a try. Worst decision I ever made. The first bill was cheaper than my old plan. After that, it went up and up. My bill now for JANUARY is $387. That is the highest bill ever for my one-story, 3 bedroom house. I was going to cancel, and they informed me I had a 2-year contract. That's not correct, as I would never sign up for that long with a company I am trying out. Somehow, they slipped that in without my permission. What a rip-off. I will never use this company again. Don't believe whatever they tell you.

We had constellation for two years. Paid on time, never had to actually talk to anyone and Oncor did all the work if there was a power outage. So we switched providers for a better deal. My wife accidentally forgot to pay the bill the 2nd to last month. I got no phone calls, no emails, zero notification until a pink slip showed up saying we had 10 days to pay or they're cutting off service - WOW. So I immediately paid the past due amount only to have a notification from their collections department show up two days later. Dude - I have a perfect payment history, its a flipping pandemic, you made zero attempt to contact me - this was such a sleazy move. I am so, so, so thankful we made the choice to leave. So they'll be great, just don't make any mistakes or you'll be dealing with their nonsense. Seriously - one missed payment with a perfect two year history. If I were constellation I would have called just to check on me to be sure everything was okay since it is so out of character. I cannot stress enough that I would not recommend constellation to anyone.

My experience with Constellation has been great. One short call and everything was setup. The CSR did not make me do anything online. She just did it all for me over the phone and service was installed and has been great this past year.

Had some billing issues early on, but not exactly providers fault. All in all everything was great, however as always good things don't last. Provider probably won't make my current plan available on renewal as it was more likely promotional to attract business, so will have to look for affordable options elsewhere to keep costs in check

There should be an online method to renew policy... Either I was not patient or the rep talked slowly, either way when I'm at work taking the time out for all the repeated question was a bit weary. When someone satisfied with the services, the option to renew is given.

Constellation was recommended to me by my sister. It was easy to sign up for service. Information about usage came to me via email and online payment was easy. I hope I can continue with Constellation with their great prices, but like with everything else, I expect a price hike after my initial sign up contract expires.

I was not aware of the surcharges over 60.00. If I knew this I wouldn't have chosen your company. I am a senior and on a fixed low monthly income. On just my social security. I can't afford it. I may have to break my contract and look elsewhere.

I have really been a very happy customer from day one with constellation the service is great the prices have been great I'm very sad that I did not sign up for a longer-term because now it's about to go up 2 point 9% and that's going to throw me off my fixed income which may force me to have to look for another company only so I can afford to pay the bill not because I have any complaints with the company at all they have been great.
