Customer Reviews of ENGIE
1-2 Star Reviews: 2 (100%)
We were with a different electrical provider but when we opened our business, we were contacted by a salesman telling us how much we would save by switching to Engie. The rates sounded great so we enrolled our business and switched our home. We have never seen higher bills at our house. It took them a week to get the electric turned on at our business and that was only after we were on the phone with them every single day helping them find that they had made a mistake on the meter number. We try to use autopay for all of our bills but we have had a terrible time trying to enroll because they require a PIN to enroll that we have never received. Every billing cycle we call customer service and are often disconnected once we finally get to a representative. When we say we are going to find a different provider they are quick to tell us how much it will cost for us to break the contract.
What do customers think about ENGIE?
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 ENGIE customer review is 0 / 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!
