During the winter storm here in Texas I was so nervous that my bill would go through the roof.I was one of the lucky ones who did not lose power. I'm a senior and was very very concerned that I would experience price gouging. I did not and I can't tell you how proud I am to be a Green Mountain Energy customer because if it. As we know, other electric companies did try to price gouge.....So sad and so wrong during a time of great devestation....My complete and sincere gratitude and compliments to Green Mountain Energy for their honesty and obvious care and concern for their valued customers...Thanks again and job well done Green Mountain.I will continue to recommend your services to family,friends and others...

I normally never, ever take the time to write reviews but after seeing so many bad ones, I felt compelled to share my experience with Green Mountain Energy. I have been a completely happy customer with them, and their customer service is beyond great. No hidden fees, prices are exactly what we agreed to. I highly recommend this company. Also, during the Texas freeze this year, we NEVER lost power save for the couple hours in the middle of the night due to mandatory rolling blackout.

I find GME a pleasure to do business with. My rates are reasonable. *** I love that I get a weekly summary of my usage, it gives me a heads up on what my bill will be, and I always take the opportunity to adjust the amount of energy I consume. I always try to beat the prior weeks consumption. #NEVER ANY SURPRISES!!!

We put 1.75 MHZ into the grid this month and pulled ~1,100 KW and we got a bill for 90$ - how does that math work? I called Green Mountain to check and see if it was just an error but was informed that the plan we were on no longer exists (they did not contact me) and they ONLY have a month-to-month plan available now AND that is it - meaning the price can/will vary as Green Mountain deems necessary. Adding to this, what happen to the ~600 KW+ our panels put on the grid?? I was told by Green Mountain that the energy amount added to the grid by our panels was less than we burned as reported by Oncor. Sorry - I was born at night, but not last night. I have moved to Rhythm Ops, LLC and recommend all Solar panels owners using Green Mountain consider the same or plan on the month-to-month reality.

I called the morning of Jun. 1,2020 to ask the why my electricity is disconnected. I clearly called them on 2 occasions to cancel my disconnection notice since I had not yet moved into my house. They told me after I waited over an hour being transferred, that they will connect me in 1 or 2 hours top. It is not 5:15 p.m I have NO ELECTRICITY & they are not answering. I am so humiliated after paying them $218.00 balance that was suppose to be made in payments & they still haven't taken the time to connect my service. It is outrageous. I have been a loyal customer for over 5 or 6 years.

Green Mountain's customer service is there for nothing they do not solve any problems. I own solar panels and we are experiencing high increases in our monthly bill. Four months had passed and we're still facing the same problem. My bill is now over $400 dollars because we are disputing the high prices. What really happened was that they failed to remove the so-called "average billing" from our monthly bill and used all the energy our panels produce without giving us any credit whatsoever. After 4 months of dealing with the situation and many phone calls, they finally switch us to the right plan but deny giving us the credits for the previous months. Customer service representatives didn't do anything to help us they just blame us and used the most ridiculous excuses like: "some customers prefer to continue with the average billing"... Really? People decide to pay more and give away the energy their solar panels produce. I'm really upset. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH GREEN MOUNTAIN ENERGY

Winter Texans, do not choose GreeN Mountain Energy for your electric provider unless you want to come home to a melted mess in your refrigerator. We were gone 5 months, had no notice from the company when they shut off our power. Our auto pay CC expired and Green Mtn had incorrect mailing address and incorrect email address for us. They did not even leave a message on the phone. Now we have a horrible mess to clean and no ac while we are waiting for the city to reinspect and turn on electric. Nice customer service agents but they are NOT trained well enough to handle this situation correctly.

I called Customer Service to ask about charges on the account. I did not ask the rep for information such as balances, due dates, or anything to do with my fianc's account. I simply asked for the definition of these charges. The rep on the phone asked for my relationship to the account owner. What does that matter if I am asking for a simple definition? I could be a curious, potential customer since I was going to put the electricity bill in my name. I messaged Bree on the online chat thinking maybe she would give me definitions. She attempted, but since I am sure they put notes regarding the phone call, she closed the chat ending in "Since you haven't responded, I assume you got everything you needed". She did not need to speak to the owner for a general question. After this incident, I will be considering transferring services. I work in banking, so I understand verification very well. But I would never refuse to explain our bank fees to a potential customer.

AND if you are wondering about their fees, they charge $20 to send you a letter. $20 that could pay for food for my kids. It's 2022, send me an email instead of sending a letter.

We were with Infuse Energy and all of a sudden started getting things saying we are with Green Mountain. Apparently Infuse energy went out of business. We were not notified or given a choice. We immediately got with TXU as we didn't request or want Green Mountain. Now we're getting early termination notices from Green Mountain even though we didn't contract with them. I spent more than an hour on the phone with them including someone saying she was a manager with no resolution. I am beyond furious at this point. We will be contacting the Utilities commissioner tomorrow and at this point may need to start a class action suit so everyone else they did this to can resolve their bills as well.

I had Green Mountain Energy for the first two years I had solar panels on my house. The plans at that point were great, though now that they have expired their remaining solar buy-back plans are MUCH worse (can't be credited for excess generation in a month, no carryover, and <1:1 credit for even production up to your intake from the grid) so am looking elsewhere.I understand companies are trying to figure out how to make money off this and experimenting with different plans so that was disappointing but not totally unexpected. What sparked me to write a review was that when I called to find out about switching to a plan still listed on their website but that errored when I tried to sign up, the person I spoke to really didn't know their plans (turns out the one I wanted is still listed on the website but no longer available, btw). I literally had to explain how the solar buyback works, how the charges on the EFL added up, etc., just to finally get to the point where he understood how their own plan worked - and then said "well, you should probably just sign up for this one we offer because you won't find anything better". Really frustrating. I was put on hold several times while I thought he was trying to find additional information or alternate plans, turns out he was just trying to figure out how the plans I had already explained worked.Billing and account management while I had them worked fine, but disappointed at how drastically they curtailed their solar support and that in trying to find out what alternatives I had, I had to spend my time explaining how electricity charges work to their customer service person. It was a half-hour conversation where the only new information I got was "yes, that plan on our website is not actually available," which would've taken 20 seconds to say if they actually valued our time.

When I first joined in April 2020 I was told the energy company would buy back my excess generated energy at the kWh rate I was being charged. Several months later I was advised this policy had changed and my energy would be placed in a bank in case I needed it.Now, this month I received the first bill for electricity useage. This is in spite of the fact that since April 2020. I had produced over 35,000 extra keg than I had used. That is 35,000 kWh that the provider has sold to someone else for a profit.So I called and I was told the PUC had changed the policy and placed a cap on banking excess energy. So Green Mountain has confiscated my bank and now, not only am I paying for a solar power system but Im once again paying an electric bill. They are giving me a credit for what I produce but it is capped and pays a lower rate.I have contacted my State Senator and my State Representative. If I did this to someone, I would be charged with Theft/ Fraud or both.I have contacted another energy company who stated they have not heard anything about this PUC policy and I will be transferring my account to them on Monday.I AM TIRED OF BEING TREATED LIKE THIS BY GREEN MOUNTAIN. I WAS TRYING TO BE A GOOD CITIZEN AND A RESPONSIBLE USER OF DOLAR POWER AND I HAPED BEEN FISCALLY ASSAULTED.

I was a Liberty Energy customer with no complaints. Liberty went bankrupt and automatically transfered my account to Green Mountain with the letter stating Green Mountain will honor my Liberty contract. Not only has Green Mountain not honored my contract they severely over charge me. My bill from Liberty last year for Jan 2020 was $60. My usage has not changed from year to year. However my Green Mountain bill was $139. No way should my bill EVER be that high in the winter. I live in a small 2 bedroom house and my heat is natural gas not electric. Historically my electricity bill is low in the Winter and increase in the summer. My natural gas bill increases in the Winter and decrease in the summer. I'm waiting on Green Mountain to explain to me a 50%+ increase from year to year. My goal at this point is to dump Green Mountain for a more a family budget friendly and fair electricity company like Liberty.

Our first break with GME was when they were offering better rates to new customers, but would only renew loyal customers at higher rate. When we moved to a home with solar, we again tried GME because they offered solar credits. Now they are eliminating that. Seems pretty hypocritical to say they support "green" energy but then refuse to support it. Since the buyback rate is less than the sale rate, it's not as though they can't still make some profit, if they cared to actually help environment. Obviously greed is the motivating factor. Luckily, Reliant and Rhythm offer solar plans for homeowners. Seems true green energy consumers are leaving GME in search for companies with integrity.

I had a great 1st year and at renewal time I had to renew to a different plan. I have solar panels solar panels so the companies I can use are limited. I called several companies and had detailed conversations about how the plans worked. I finally decided to stay with Green Mountain as it would be a little cheaper than other companies. I got my first bill after renewing and it isn't at all what they explained to me. It is going to cost me a lot more than what it should have. When I called for help they really didn't care that I was lied to about how the plan works and would still charge me $150 to cancel. The guy on the phone kept trying to tell me I could change to one of their other plans, which is not a solar buyback plan. I had this run in circles conversations like 5 times. After 2.5 hours and two different people nothing was resolved.

My first two bills were 80-100$ then after for the rest of my 12 year plan it was 150$ each payment. i have a one bedroom apartment with everything turned off when i go to work. i use electricity sparingly and dont over use my a/c. i had the free nights plan and it sure didnt help a bit. i was spending 100$-120$ at most on previous provider. before it was time to renew a month ahead i checked their new plans. they are increased drastic amounts 14-16 cents a kw. i found a different provider like the one i had before green mountain and will enjoy saving 50$ every electric bill. do yourself a favor and stay far away from green mountain electric, worst idea ive had in past 3 years.

This company will fee you to death. They'll thank you for being a loyal customer until you can't pay on time. If you have a perfect life and don't live paycheck to paycheck you might be fine here. But get real, how many of us in TX have that luxury. GME will slap a late charge and cut-off notice fee on you the day after your bill is due. That gives then an extra $30 a month on top of the highest KW charge per hour. For renewable energy they get off the grid. There customer service is okay but they're mostly off shore employees. Theyre just a horrible company.

They will sometimes bill you twice within the same month, which is extremely hard for those of us that can't afford to budget over $600 on electricity per month. You'll be locked in and will owe a fee to change companies, which is standard. I just wish I had done better research about their billing. I don't find their prices to be any better than any other company.

We put 1.75 MHZ into the grid this month and pulled ~1,100 KW and we got a bill for 90$ - how does that math work? I called Green Mountain to check and see if it was just an error but was informed that the plan we were on no longer exists (they did not contact me) and they ONLY have a month-to-month plan available now AND that is it - meaning the price can/will vary as Green Mountain deems necessary. Adding to this, what happen to the ~600 KW+ our panels put on the grid?? I was told by Green Mountain that the energy amount added to the grid by our panels was less than we burned as reported by Oncor. Sorry - I was born at night, but not last night. I have moved to Rhythm Ops, LLC and recommend all Solar panels owners using Green Mountain consider the same or plan on the month-to-month reality.

Our solar panels were installed in March. We spent a month getting services set up with Green Mountain. Sounded like a great company, with their buy back plan. However, they will only buy back what you use, so the other 1000's of KW's our solar panels produce go where? I just want a far exchange, it is not a fair plan to only match what is used. I spent over an hour, multiple times trying to get this fixed, but it doesn't get resolved, I keep getting switched to another person and have to explain the entire situation over again, only to be told that type of plan does not exist, or another tried to charge me to switch plans, which was not my error to begin with.

I have been a customer with Green Mountain for over 10 years. When I last called they were very rude and ignorant. They were unable to assist me in any way whatsoever. I had put a block on my credit card to make sure that no one could gain access to the available credit. It was my fault, as I neglected to make it high enough for them to push through my automatic payment because it is difficult to keep up with my average billing due to the fact that after the winter storm each month it seems to go up $50. When the payment does not go through you cannot establish automatic payments again for SIX months??!!! It very much makes you feel like youre a child and you are in punishment.I have all of my bills set up on automatic payment because I only get paid once a month. Upon explaining this to the gentleman on the phone he stated well maybe you should set it up to come out of your checking account. Clearly that was an issue seeing as I get paid three days after they want my money, which I had explained before his comment was made. At the tune of $360 currently, which is $100 more than it was during COVID when EVERYONE WAS HOME (this is also WITH free nights) its hard to sit on an extra 360 to get ahead of it to pay from my checking. At this point I navely thought that being a customer for 10+ years might make him feel like he should treat me with a little more respect. However I was wrong, when I discussed leaving I was told that it was no problem. Do you need me to cancel today? And Just so you know you have $500 banked that you will receive a bill for because of average billing. I dont understand how banking my overages and racking them up to the tune of $500 is beneficial to me in any way. Their customer service is disgusting. I cannot believe that after being a customer for 10+ years they really just could care less if I walk away. So I am on here shopping and fully intend to change ASAP. THANK GOD I could not find a decent plan with Green Mountain in order to re-up my contract, as once you are in they dont offer you much at all. Because now I am on month-to-month I can just walk away, otherwise I would be hit with a $250-$300 fee to add to my banked FIVE HUNDRED!!! Let me just say that no one told me about the bank when I signed up and I spoke to someone to make sure this was beneficial for me.

I had been with them for 5 years. The main selling point for me was the electric delivery charge on my TXU bill. After my initial contract I never received any offers, I just got a bill each month. Well this last month I looked at my bill and guess what, the same electric delivery charges. So I went with another provider and now they say I owe a $300 early termination fee? Someone will have to explain because I never signed another contract. So how did I terminate early? They adding this just thinking people will pay? Very dishonest.

Been happy customer until yesterday when they cut power at my address without warning. I moved and they were very prompt to add my new address and switch on power. They were also very prompt to cut power at my old address without warning although house still on the market. When I called to move they asked when power had to be switched off. I could not provide an answer since house was put on the market for sale. They put a date and told me to call to change it if I was selling it. My online account showed both my accounts with end date in 2025, the end of my 5 year plan so was not worried. Well, they cut power without warning. And now they want me to switch to a month to month variable plan, much more expensive. Needless to say, I changed provider. I was on autopay so very low maintenance for them, by definition always paid on time. Unbelievable the lack of care for their customers. I highly recommend to look elsewhere (the only reason it is not one star across the board is because they were prompt to sign me on the first time)

I had Green Mountian for 3 years. Paid on time every month. The last year the bill kept going up and up every month.

I emailed customer service to make sure I was through my contract and was confrimed I had been. I paid my last bill on 11/17/2017, I then got another bill for over $500 due to be paid in December 2017! I changed companied in October. They told me it was due to cancellation fees and last bill. How do I have another bill over $500 when I switched companies in October! Now I have this on my creidt report as an unpaid bill (the only one on my report) and having a negative impact! I have NEVER had a negative impact on my credit rating and now these people after 4 years have me on there! I have tried to call the company and they said nothing they can do. The credit collector says I have to have proof of payment in full. How the crap do I get anything when GM says sorry can't pull up your account so nothing we can do for you! I have all my emails for payment for 3 years but nothing for payment in full account closed, they would never provide me with an account closed statement and couldn't tell me why I had a bill for November when I didn't even use them in November!

I am super annoyed and disappointed with Green Mountain level of service. I switched over from TXU and for the first year my billing was great and managed to reduce my billing to an average of $60 per month. After renewal they sent me information on average billing I called in to pay a bill and requested information about average and was advised that it should help me lower my bill and prevent my bill from going up and keep my bill at about the same amount each month. So that sounded good and I advised the rep to go ahead and sign me up for it. But lo and behold since activating the average billing my bill as tripled. I have been calling in each month and was Informed since were in the winter mu usage had gone up but I have had them for over a year meaning I been through a winter with then and my bill was never that high before. I finally said okay can remove this average billing because it seems to have impacted my billing. Only to be told that would mean I would have over $340 owing that would have to pay on my next bill. So this led to further discovering that this average billing actually creates a debit amount each month that they add to future payments which ultimately increases your bill. So not only has my billing tripled but I now have money owing because of this average billing and I have never missed a payment and I always pay my bill on time. I asked for a channel to address my concerns. I was sent to a supervisor and explained that what they aware doing was wrong and this has a negative impact on peoples livelihood.I was basically told that there is nothing they can do to help except provide a payment plan for the money that had accrued I asked for a resource to raise my concerns and I was given a P O Box Number for Houston. O top of this they now want to to incur additional expenses to get a letter to them to let them know they should be providing customers with fil and adequate information before offering a service that actually increases costs.

I signed up for Green Mountain in November 2012, my bills were reasonable until the super hot texas summer started, my bills in the summer ranged from $325 to $400. I called Green Mountain and was told it wasn't them it was my AC. Called my apartments over and over to come fix my AC and they said it was my energy company not my unit. This went on for over 4 years, crazy bills and my apartment was always hot, my apartment manager told me she had a 5,000 sq foot house and her bills were like $250! I wasn't in a position to move until a couple of years ago, into a bigger apartment. I switched to TXU and have NEVER had a bill over $90 in the summer and I keep it freezing at night. My new apartments "prefer" I sign up with Green Mountain, but I will not make that mistake again.

I am someone who has been paying electric bills for 30 plus years. I've never experienced such an awful company. I ran in to some money issues (single mom) and tried to get them to make arrangements to let me pay my bill a bit late, but it would have been paid before my next bill was due. They refused and turned off my electricity twice. So, if your bill is due on the 19th and your new bill generates 12 days later.. you get shut off... and no one cares or can do anything about it. NEVER have I seen this in my life. I very much dislike what this company is about and unfortunately, I'm locked in to a 2 year with them. I will run as fast as I can away once it's up though!

First higher rates than some, but I was ok with that due to the environmental considerations. What I'm not ok with is I am a single mom, single income and there is no flexibility with this company when it comes to payment arrangement, if there is some kind issue arises.. especially if you typically stay caught up. They, however, will cut service as soon as the next bill generates with zero warning or communication. Most electric companies that I've used forever in my 30 plus years will allow you to get it paid before your next one is due... not these guys at all.. no notice, nothing indicating that you will be disconnected at all if you are on paperless billing.. no mention in the weekly emails they send, no mention when I logged in to see what my due dates. AND furthermore customer services is of zero help, I had a perfect storm of personal financial crisis happen in the last two months and was left a bit short (large vet bill with an animal that was internally bleeding and several hundred $ car repair)... I can easily pay the bill before the next due date, but they say they have no wiggle room or ability to turn my service on. We all know that is not true.. there is always a way.. they have set a protocal that cleary indicates to their customers that they don't care at all. So right now my services is off, I have no family to call for assistance.. sad part is I can pay my bill and the current portion a week from tomorrow... and be all caught up.. so for now, good riddance... I will pay my next bill and will move on to another company.

When I talked with them they were unhelpful, incredibly rude, and unapologetic for their mistake. I would never suggest for anyone to use this electricity company.

Your power will be on in 24-48 hours."Arrived at the house on a Saturday Evening...guess what...NO POWER! The morons sent an email requesting more information even though I was assured I was 100% good to go. They then let me know that it would be another 48 hours, but with the weekend, like 72, before they would turn my power on. RIDICULOUS! I asked for a manager and after another hour of wasted time, mainly waiting on hold (Likely because they have so many other customers they have screwed over) and he said he would escalate it IF after he listened to a recording of the call that the email part was not explained to me. He, of course came back and said it was, even though it was NOT.They have my SS, my new home address, all the information they could need in the world and the morons can't turn on my power.

My bill is higher every month even with balanced billing. When I called to cancel that, was told my bill would be higher even though still higher and not balanced. Customer Service says I am using more, but I do not use the dishwasher or have a washer or dryer, yet they claim I am using more and every month the bill higher than the month before. They charge more for month to month billing so they can lock the consumers in a contract. I have a contract and still pay more. Read some of their reviews (all of them 5 star, imagine that!) and one of them claimed he had a 3 bedroom house and paid $87.00 monthly. My one bedroom apartment is now at $105.00 (as usual higher than the previous month). I regret having ever contacted Green Money "Energy" and looking for a different electric company.

I installed a photo voltaic solar panel system on my roof this past May. Not many choices for an energy co. to buy my solar production in DFW. Was misled by many people apparently. My system has been up and running since late May, yet they are not giving me credit for producing my solar power. I have made more power than I have consumed and yet they still continue to send me monthly bills. Their rate is 12.9 cents per kwhr which is absurdly high in this market (they are supposed to pay me that rate whether they buy my solar power or I use more power than my system produces in a day; I am charged that rate, too). I have spoken to various people at Green Mountain and all they do is say "you'll get credit for those kwhrs (kilowatt hrs) on your next bill - and I never get a credit. My system has produced more hours than I have used - I track my production versus consumption daily on a spreadsheet. I am still in the black on production - yet I receive bills instead of credits.RUN DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AS FAST AS YOU CAN is the most honest advice I can give anyone that might be considering switching to them. Don't regret it like I do.

Do not use this company? We switched from TXU to Green Mountain. We were put on a plan that was supposed to cut our bill in half, instead it was over double what we were previously paying. My bill has never been that high in the 12+ years we have lived there. When we called customer service and were told of our rate per klw, we were shocked it was almost trippled to what was agreed. They were unwilling to help with the bill instead offered to put us on a cheaper plan but yet still having to pay for the one that they sent that we did not agree too, no thanks Green Mountain. Switched immediately. Then we receive a final bill that charged us an additional $380 more. You may get $10 a month for payment. No wY to treat new customers.

My first bill was about $42.00 higher, and that was just for 20 days of service! The second bill was astronomical! I canceled as soon as I saw the new amount of $275.00. He also told me that there was no fee if I canceled early, guess what, $300 fee to cancel, bringing the total to $575.00!!!I was automatically put on a 60 month contract, that I never agreed to.I fully intend to report this company to the Texas Utility Commission, The Better Business Bureau and the Texas State Attorney General, along with recordings on my phone, made during our conversation.Once again, in my opinion, Their reps are misleading, deceitful and manipulative!

I was a Green Mountain Energy customer for 2 years, from 2015-2017. I never missed a payment, and was always on time. Today, I was denied a loan with low interest rates because my credit score indicated a collection agency was after me. Stunned, I became even more so when I found out the agency was sent by Green Mountain Energy for a $37 bill I never even knew I owed - from 2017! Two years later, without any emails or letters from Green Mountain OR the collection agency, my credit score took a hit. It's one thing to send an agency for $37, especially to a customer who made all his payments on time, but it's another thing entirely to not communicate it at ALL before sending a collection agency, which also didn't communicate. The representatives I spoke with were friendly, but unhelpful. Extremely unprofessional practice, and though this might be a unique occurrence, avoid yourself a headache and go with Constellation. I doubt they'd send a collection agency after you 2 years later without even an email.

I wrote a review that was detailed and not very flattering. After its posting, it just so happened that numerous customer thought they should right in and share their great experience. All the reviews say is great experience. Don't you like to go online and disagree with people about their unfortunate experiences with your utility provider? You have not? Well then who wrote them? Do you think it is possible that those reviews were written by employees? I would have hoped that Green Mountain would have trained their employees in writing a credible review before posting a bogus review. (i.e. credible reviews actually mention why their good or bad experience was rather than "its great"). It also interesting how many more reviews were written right after mine. That timing doesn't seem odd.What do you think... 1. a bunch of people decided to go online and right good, non-specific reviews right after my terrible experience or 2. green mountain is faking the reviewsI'll bet you that they are liars.

Run. I selected Green Mountain in May of 2018. In December 2018, I took a new job with 6 days a week travel and would turn my heat down, everything electric off, while on the road. Despite the change, my bills kept going up. I thought I missed a payment or something because it was impossible for me to be using "more energy". This week while on the road, my neighbor had his electricity turned off. My neioghbor thought he had the best deal in electricity because his bills were so low and kept using more power (well that would explain something). The account that was turned off was mine, but the power went out in my neighbors unit. I called Green Mountain customer service and got a rep. The rep said I paid Oncor and had to call them. Green Mountain is Oncor's customer, not me. I asked him,"can you see my bank account?" Reps response was passive aggressive non-sense to waste my time. I interrupted,"do I pay Oncor?" 3 mins later the rep said,"Yes" I responded, "I am looking at my bill pay screen and Oncor is not on it. Green Mountain is. Do I pay Oncor?" Reps response is "yes". I followed up,"I just told you I do not pay Oncor, yet you said I do...you are lying". The reps response was more passive aggressive, not-related-to-the-issue-nonsense. Finally, I asked for someone that would not lie to me and would help me with my issue. It took 4 mins for him to write notes before he could transfer me and then it was 8 mins on hold.I finally get a "manager". I describe the problem where Green Mountain has been billing me for the wrong apartment. The Mgr's response is,"I am looking at your account and the meter number is correct". I tell him that Green Mountain interrupted my neighbors service so the meter is wrong. Mgr,"no, the meter number is right, I can see it right here". The Mgr proceeded to tell me,"I am not trying to call you dumb, but you are wrong...I can see here it is the right account". "I am not trying to call you stupid, but the account here clearly states its the right number". I responded,"If its the right meter number, than why did the power go out in the wrong apartment?" Mgr,"I am not saying you are stupid, but the meter number on your account is correct". At this point, I am longing for a 10-year-old that can add 1 + 1.I switched strategies and I went through the same conversation with the Mgr about having a relationship with Oncor as the Rep and guess what...the Mgr also said I paid Oncor. It took another 5 mins....because he had to get his passive aggressive banter to waste my time to instead of trying to address my problem...but finally he admitted,"well you pay us and we pay Oncor". Finally, Green Mountain admits that both the Mgr and Rep lied to me when they said I paid Oncor.But we are not done yet. Now the Mgr starts with,"I have to give you a warning because you are disrespecting me." Really! You got to be kidding me! So I said,"you lied about me paying Oncor, but I don't care. How do I get this fixed?" The Mgr's response was,"the account is correct". I was finally,"I don't want to call you stupid, but what should I call someone that doesn't understand that their system number and my actually apartment are not linked?"Finally, I was,"look...who do I need to call if, hypothetically, a meter is hooked up to the wrong unit?" Mgr,"you need to call Oncor." I asked,"Can I have that number please?" Mgr,"yes, but I don't want to have to give you a second warning for being disrespectful. If you would..." I had about had it at this point and decided what is good for the goose was good for the gander. I interrupted,"I don't mean to be disrespectful, but could you give me the number?" The Mgr starts up again and I interrupt,"I hope I am not wasting your time, but if it would not be too much trouble, could you please give me the number? I know it must be hard to tell me the number, but I would really appreciate your efforts in trying to tell me the number." He tried his passive aggressive nonsense a few more time only to be interrupted by me with the same passive aggressive, I-am-not-insulting-you-but-what-I-am-saying-is-actually-insulting-language. At this point, the Mgr was not having his fun anymore and he gave me the number to call at Oncor.I thanked him for the number but had to follow up. "I am in a Lyft getting a ride home and my driver just confirmed that I was very patient, use no demeaning language, and never cursed the whole time. Do you think that you are good at your job when you have to give a respectful customer 1 1/2 warnings and take 30+ minutes to give a customer a number to solve his problem?" Dead silence from the Mgr. I am not proud of that question, but given the silence, I hope it hit home and does some good to his future and future customer experience.In summary, do not do business with Green Mountain. The customer service get's its kicks by trying to piss you off with passive aggressive behavior. There are alternatives that are similarly priced...even green options.

I was a Green Mountain customer for over four years. I just found out they switched my account with my neighbor and I own a tiny house so I overpaid severely for over 3 years. Basically this happened because I owned both houses until 2015. When I sold one house they took me off the wrong account. Oncor discovered this error (they called it an inadvertent gain in electrical lingo) during an investigation and now Green Mountain refuses to correct it. They even reported me to the collection agency for refusing to pay the last erroneous bill. My neighbor said their last bill was 32.77 and mine was 247.00 so I am not paying it I only owe 32.77 (which makes sense because I moved out and turn everything off but the fridge). I think I estimate I have paid about 1500.00 to much over 3 years. And also when I cut off my service my neighbor actually had service cut off instead because accounts were switched and they had to go to a motel in the middle of the night with their 2 year old and then they had to pay a 500.00 dollar deposit to have service turned back on even though I had cut it off. In addition to that my neighbors were told to get an electrician to come out when it kept getting cut on and off. It cost them 800.00 and they will never see that money again. BEWARE YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED about how they do business. I am now contacting an attorney, filing a complaint with the Texas Public Utility Commission, and the Attorney General. Update: Someone contacted me after this post from GM and during the conversation confirmed that they received a report from the December 17th Oncor investigation on December the 26th. They put me on hold to file a dispute for reimbursement then came back and abruptly told me they could not help as it was under investigation with the Texas Public Utility Commission and the other department handling the matter had not concluded or discovered the error yet. Really????? Really???? Will the other department ever discover that error??? I will keep this updated. Its one thing to make a mistake-we all do and the average consumer knows this. Its another not to make it right. I will update this post if Green Mountain comes clean and treats me fairly. I want to be fair but I don't want anyone going through what I have gone through.

I have been a customer of Green Mountain Energy for 4 years and WAS pleased until I called to discuss a better rate. The CSM stated a cheaper plan was available and that he would change the contract and waive the termination fee for the existing contract. After placing me on hold, came back on a stated they cannot waive fees, so long story short BE AWARE. Be wary of the base charge and their ability to give you a more expensive plan when renewing! It is NOW obvious Customer retention and customer loyalty is NOT in the Green Mountain Energy vocabulary.

I had been a customer for GME for over 4 years & we recently moved and was told they serviced our area and signed up for a new plan had the date set to switch over to our new house. New owner contacted me to advise my account was closed? Called GME (3rd time) and they then informed me that they dont service our new house-thankfully we could get same day service with the new provider. To add insult to injury they called 5 days later to see if I had received my final bill & would be able to pay for it? Deceived by 2 different representatives and they gave the new owner the run around-bad news for GME new owner is a local real estate agent for a large firm. Sure GME wont get any recommendations from her or her firm.

I have been with green mountain for a few years. When my plan expired, I received no notice. I just received a $425 + electric bill! I called customer service and the man told me my kilowatt price and he didnt seemed at all concerned to keep my business! I asked him flat out, do you want to keep my business. He was quiet didnt say yes. So I went to choose another provider. I went with TriEagle! I already have received notification from them that they will notify me before my plan changes! Wow!

I signed up with Green Mountain under a deal when they promised a $100 gift card. I never received my gift card. I then moved to an apartment where utilitied were included, so I did not have to order electricity service, and had a past due balance with Green Mountain. My intent was to use the gift card to take care of my past due balance, but I still never got it. After that lease was up, I moved back to another apartment where I had to get electric service and I went back to Green Mountain. They still tried to charge me for the past due balance and still would not send me my gift card. Customer should not have to jump through hoops just to get what they are entitled to. For this reason I would not recommend Green Mountain.

My experience with Green Mountain Energy was not bad until 2018. You would think to be their customer since 2015 they would have treated you better. I consistently renew my contract annually to get on their fix rates plan; however, this year I didn't receive an email reminder from them, as a result, I did not sign for a fixed rate and my electric bill was ridiculously high. I recently called Green Mountain Customer service to ask about my billing. They said: "I am currently on a month to month." Which is about 80 plus more per month compared to what I used to pay with a fix rate plan. I asked, "is there anything you can do to help with the previous rate and who can I talk to help address this." Their response was "I can add a $30 courtesy credit on this month account." I asked: "What about the other month?" Their response: " Well, we did send out the letters to your house three month in advance and there is nothing we can do if it is you who didn't take action." I asked, "who in their right mind know and decided to pay a higher rate?" Overall, I am not satisfied how they treat their long-term customer and help their customer solve their problem. I would not recommend this company to anyone!

The price we received with our initial contract was outstanding. No issues during the life of the contract. However, a letter comes and tells us of a 40% increase in price. Therefore, we switched to another provider. And as a parting gift they hit us with a $200 contract cancellation fee.

I had green mountain at an apartment that I moved into because the apartment complex recommended them. Their rates were a little expensive but they claim to help the environment, so whatever. The problem came when I moved out of my apartment to my new house. I called to get my service transferred and was on the phone for about a half hour before being told they couldn't find my new address in their system. A month later I find that I'm still being charged at my old address so I called to get it taken care of and the agent I spoke to "Carlos" told me he had no record of a call.. About 15 minutes of me insisting that I called he was able to find the call and stated that since I had wanted to transfer my service and didn't specially say to cancel it they left it running and couldn't do anything about it. I asked to speak to his supervisor and he told me he was the supervisor and no one else was available. About 10 minutes after insisting I was finally able to speak to his supervisor who stated it was a bad situation and understood it seemed like bad customer service to me but she couldn't do anything. Moral of the story, save yourself the headache and go with someone else for electricity. If you're worried about the environment take the money you save by using a different service and donate it to an environment charity. You'll be happier for it.

I moved 2 accounts last year to Green Mountain Energy to take advantage of their solar Rebate Program. In December I took bids for an syatem of a 30 panel, $34,000 install. I checked back with GM to verify the program only to be told they had made some changes. NOW, if I generate more power than I use, the excess will show as a credit on my account, BUT, I don't have access to any credit over my bill. So, if I should over generate power every month, that money just sits there. The only way I can get it out is to cancel my account. How stupid is that? I guess I could keep my account with GM til my contract ends, switch my service back to TXU on a short term contract and then transfer back to GM. How stupid is that. SO, beware Green Mountain Energy. Bad business. Just another solar hype program to get you to switch providers. Needless to say, I canceled my solar panel install. And, I will be moving my service away from Green Mountain.

Green Mountain tried very hard to get me to renew at a high rate (13.6 cents a KWH). Even tried to tell me that was the best rate for existing customers. (Both via mail and via their website and via their customer service, so it was a repeated and concerted effort to overcharge me.)Since I knew other providers were offering 10.6 cents and GM was offering that for new customers, I kept asking for their best rates. After an hour on the phone and 3 times on hold while a manager was consulted, they offered me an 8 cent rate. (All rates include Centerpoint charges, so in this case the GM rate was 3.1 cents). Couldn't convince them to give me more than 13 months or to start it immediately (either of which should have been an option), because I was tired after so long on the phone. I have been a GM customer for 15 years, and expected to be treated better than this.

Green Mountain doesn't have the cheapest plan by far, and not even the cheapest renewable plan, but they do have stability, consistency, and reliability. I've been a customer for several years now (coming up on my third contract renewal) and I'm very wary of switching away from GME even if it means potentially saving $1000 a year on power. Their website is easy to use and intuitive. Averaged billing great.The ONLY negative I ever experienced was when I was not paying attention and missed the contract renewal. Once you switch to "month by month" expect to be paying almost DOUBLE the rate. To be fair, they did send me ONE letter about this, and from what I'm reading many companies are much worse about not nudging the customer to renew a contract so the company can reap those sweet, sweet month-to-month rates. So stay on top of that contract renewal!

I was charged $56 to change companies.I was charged $43 for two days electric when they put me on the wrong plan. When I asked why I had to pay, they blamed TX New Mexico Power. The power company blames them. When I complained about the meters the residential division blamed the commercial division and vice versa. No one person can tell me what is going on with my accounts. They don't talk to each other. I could not get a bill. When I finally got one it was for 3 months of over charged electric. Once again I was given a new plan.In between trying to figure all this out I got disconnect notices. I would go on, but I'm tired.

By far the worst company I have ever worked with. They advertise low rates but then charge hundreds of dollars of extra fees. There is no customer service to speak of. Calling their customer service line is a headache because you always get transferred to five different people, have to give them all the same information and then they can never actually help you. Now, after canceling my account, they are charging me almost $400 that is not in my contract and is probably illegal. I can not get a hold of anyone that can explain the charges or get them taken off of my bill. I would recommend that no one use this company and they should probably be investigated for shady and illegal business practices.

I've been with GME for about 8 years if not 9. I left TXU for what I could prove was way better service.

I called to cancel my services with them about two days ago when I learned that my property will be torn all the way down, they sent someone to read the meter on today and all of a sudden I get an email with a final bill of 320.00!!!!! When I called to see why, the rep did not seem to get what I was asking so I asked to speak to a sup. He got on the phone and I advised me that I owed for July and Aug....I was confused as I know I have access to look at my bills through them online and July was most definitely paid and only Aug. was due. I explained to them my situation and that I am a week late paying Aug. due to having to choose safety as priority due to the storm. He seemed to not care as he stated the same thing. He then advised me that it will be reported to a collection agency if I do not pay....I am thinking....did I dial the right number??!!! I became so irritated with the manner in which I was being treated, so I advised him to do what you need to do and ended the call!!! As I calmed myself and went to my account, I WAS RIGHT!!!! JULY WAS PAID AND ONLY AUG. REMAINED!!! Turns out that GME have decided to charge me for the month of September as my PDF for my current bill states my Aug. payment amount and CURRENT CHARGES....meaning, GME just added a new bill!! I am so disappointed in GME for the simple fact that I should not be charged for a month of service that I will not be using!!! I am taking my complaint to a higher office....

I have never been so mad at a company in my life. We have prepaid through green mountain. We came home from work at 5pm last night and the electricity was out because *apparenly* we ran out. We weren't notified. We made a payment at that time. We left to go to a friends. Came home at 11pm and still nothing. We paid even more money thinking we just didn't load enough. Fast forward to 2am, still nothing. I pay even more money. It's now 4am. I have work in the morning and I am exhausted. I live in Texas so it's a good 85 humid degrees in my apartment. Green Mountain is also unreachable. I am so unbelievably upset. I'm exhausted and hot. I've gone back and forth from the car just to charge my phone so I had an alarm for work in the morning. At this rate it doesn't look like I'll need one.

I've been with green mountain for a few months now and I had my account setup on auto pay. This month I had an unexpected medical expense come up so I called to request an extension on my bill. The representative told me that I could pay my bill the next week. So I was really surprised when my bill was drafted out before the date the representative and I agreed upon. So I called again to see why and they explain to me that since I was setup on auto pay they could not stop the payment going thru. I was very upset and stressed up because this cause my bank account to be overdrafted and I was charged overdraft fees. The rep then assured me that they would credit my account since it was an error on they part.... long story straight it's been several days later and they have yet to credit my account and I'm still being charged over draft fees. WHAT A NIGHTMARE I would NEVER recommend green mountain to anyone ever!!! This has been the WORST experience ever. I'm basically paying for their errors.

I have been with this company for 10 years and never once had an issue until April of 2017. I dated my automatic payment incorrectly and my power was turned off. I called to explain and apologize for my error and requested they restore power as payment in full was scheduled, and did, take place in only 16 hours. They blatantly refused even after I explained my situation and made sure to highlight my status as a long time PAYING customer. Fine by me, I'll exercise my right as a consumer to take my business elsewhere and make sure to let everyone I can know how much their customer service sucks! NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BEYOND GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE! Fancy thermostats, reps hassling you at the grocery store, colorful flyers with "saving the planet" nonsense are all a waste if you can't take care of the customers you have. Energy providers are a dime a dozen in the Houston area.

I concluded my 12-month residential electricity contract with Green Mountain Energy Company on June 22, 2017. I needed a Letter of Credit from Green Mountain to avoid paying a deposit to my new provider. I called Green Mountain and requested the letter. I received the letter on June 23, 2017, and it stated that I had two late payments in the previous twelve months. This came as a surprise to me considering I was on "Auto-Pay" with Green Mountain and my monthly bills were submitted to my Chase Visa routinely without incident. I spoke with a representative from Green Mountain on June 27, 2017, to resolve this issue. The Green Mountain representative informed me that my July bill was due on August 11th and Chase paid it on August 12th, and my September bill was due on October 11th and Chase paid it on October 12th. Thus, my Letter of Credit stated I had two late payments. The Green Mountain representative suggested I contact Chase about this apparent discrepancy and she refused to remove the two late payments from my letter. Later that day, I spoke with a representative from Chase Visa and was told that they only have a record of the process dates (8/12/16 and 10/12/16) and no errors were recorded. As a consumer, I feel I am at a distinct disadvantage because I cannot prove when these requests for payment were actually made by Green Mountain. This seems like a simple matter that could be resolved with little effort. Both bills were paid, and I had no control over when Green Mountain submitted them.

I called to get a rate so I can compare between companies. I was looking at their rates online at the same time as well. The girl (Jazlin i think her name was) was giving me a worse deal than online! So I told her that her online deals were better. She lowered but still not as good. She then told me that the difference was so small that it wouldn't make a big difference to my bill. Who cares! Why would I want a deal over the phone that isn't as good as the online one? I told her thank you for her time and hung up. She then called me SEVEN times!! I finally answered so she would stop calling and she still went on about how little the difference was and talking like I am stupid for not wanting a worse deal. HORRIBLE customer service. Will be going with a different company. Sad too cause I have been with green mountain two summers in a row.

Moving to Texas, I had no clue how the utility industry operated. I had several options so my deciding factor was a mix of rates, renewable energy options and customer incentives. I literally selected this company as my utility provider because there was a $100 gift card incentive for being a new customer. I never received the card or heard anything about it further, until I received an email late December 2016 that asked me to confirm my information and that a card would be at my door in 7 to 10 weeks. So, I called in February to check on the incentive to find that they have been over charging me AND, that I will not be receiving the card at all. They have yet to give me a reason why I will not be receiving the card, but to me the company is just HORRIBLE altogether! The times that I have called customer service have been painful! The employees do not listen at all, and they lack the ability to think critically and problem solve. Literally I called customer service this week and expressed my discontent with them charging me random fees , and the man on the call told his superior that I was "threatening to sue them", wow really?! I had to laugh because I literally never uttered a word in reference to suing anyone at all!!! In fact, what would I be suing for????? LOL I asked that she please listen to the prior recorded call, because his claim was so far from reality! I hope that anyone reading this review will reconsider if you have Green Mountain in mind for your utility provider. If you value excellent customer service AND safe and reliable energy, pass this company byPLEASE do yourself a favor and do not sign up with Green Mountain Energy!

And I'm really disappointed...I sent green mountain my bill , and bank statements and I haven't heard back from them. I doubt they really care. I'm sure they will enjoy my extra money..

I was searching around for a better price for electricity, I was happy with the company I was with but hoping to get a deal. I saw that green mountain had a lower per kWh price than my current company and they had a $300 bill credit. I have not received my credit and numerous times haven't received my bill. Causing my electricity to be disconnected because when I try to pay online there is problems doing it. I have paid the day before disconnection was scheduled according to the representative but still got disconnected. Also my bills are higher than they were with the other company. There customer service people are awesome they don't try to work with you. I cannot wait to leave this company. They do not work with their customers. I then read in another review that their customer service is located in Mexico no wonder they don't work to help their customers.

HORRILE experience! In APRIL my husband and I moved to Dallas from out of state. Our apartment complex required us to have electric set up at least 24 hours in advance of moving in. We called Green Mountain and ordered electric service. GM required $150 deposit up front. Since we were renting two apartments, that was an inconvenience, but we paid via credit card several days ahead of schedule. As we are loading boxes into our rental truck the day before driving to Dallas, I get a call from our new apartment complex letting me know electric was not initiated yet and that I needed to call GM and inquire or we would not be able to move in. When I called GM I was on the phone for two hours and I was transferred to at least 10 people. I had to explain my situation as many times. Customer service could see that we were denied service but did not know why and they kept passing me along to someone who might be able to tell me. Finally, it was discovered that GM will not accept my husbands drivers license because it is out of state. The only other option is a social security card, and could we please fax it? No, we could not fax it; it was buried in a box somewhere! The next morning we called a different company and had no problem getting service (we did not even have to pay a deposit). A few days after we got settled in to the apartment I called GM to get our deposits back. Again, customer service we less than helpful. They had the WRONG DATE listed for initiation of service on one apartment we created an even more confusing issue. They said we would receive a check in a week.HUH!!! I had to call back six times to get our check, which finally came 6 weeks later in late JUNE. It is AUGUST now and I am STILL having difficulty getting the other $150 back from them. Not only did GM take our $300 but they did not even notify us that there was an issue with the drivers license. And getting our deposit back is turning into a nightmare! GRRR!

I've had Green Mountain for 14 months and I can honestly say, they were great, my bill was never above $20 a month and I ran electricity all day and night. I live in an 1100sqft house and my bill stayed low. There was only 1 outage during the 14 months from tropical storm Bill, and they had it resolved in around 4 hrs. Never had issues speaking with customer service or getting new product info. I like that they do not have automatic contract renewal. After contract expires it moves to month to month unless you renew your contract. After the contract my prices still stayed the same. Thanks for having me Green Mountain!

I have been a green mountain customer for over 4 years. What is the point in having a customer service department if nobody answers the phone or the email. I have sent numerous emails over the past year complaining about their payment system on the Web that looses payments. I even get an email confirming payment. Then several days later I receive a threatening email to pay or disconnect. So then I receive a bill with late charges and disconnection fees. I have attempted to call but I work long days and don't have time to wait more than an hour on hold. I have even tried first thing in the morning, but after 40 minutes I have to hang up because I have s job, just like their employees do. I have tried emailing, but nobody takes the time to respond. All I ever receive is an automated reply that they will respond within 48 hours. Well that's a joke because one year later they still have not responded. So I suck it up, pay the bill again and the late fees because the alternative is they will disconnect. This company is a joke and nothing more than a scam to get more money by simply ignoring you. I even sent them a snail mail letter about six months ago, no response. How does one dispute charges if you cannot reach anyone. Getting service was easy. They answer their phones. When I tried that ti get to someone, I was put on hold saying I had the wrong department. I waited over an hour listening to garbage. I will not renew when this contract is up in July.

It's been a couple of months since I picked it out of bunch of providers and gave it a try, and I'm happy so far. I wasn't sure of its reliability due to its 100% renewable energy sources but it has turned out to be very reliable. Texas is very hot but I'm paying a lot less than I did in Ohio. A few days ago we had a bad storm that resulted in power outage but GME was one of the first ones to recover when my neighbors were still blacked out. I also like the weekly report of my usage that I receive by email. At this rate I will stick to GME when my contract is up.

In June 2014 I signed up with GME for a year's service. All was okay for that year. I called a year later to get current rates on electricity for a new annual contract and was given a highly deceptive quote. I renewed based on what I was told, but when I got the Electricity Facts Label in the mail I saw the cost per KWH for my selected plan was actually much higher than quoted. I had to file a complaint with the TxPUC to get it straightened out. Do yourself a favor --- pick another company.

We signed a 2-year contract to get what we thought was "the best rate going". We quickly learned that we were not saving any money. Stuck with them the full 2 years. 6 months before the contract expired they sent us a new one "to keep our rate locked in". We signed it because contract says that you can cancel and not be charged a cancellation fee if you switch providers when your contract expires. We switched to Reliant on the exact same day the contract expired. They still charged us a $1450 cancellation fee! We are now involved in a back and forth debate about whether or not we owe this fee. I foresee this company ending up in litigation at some point, either with us or in a class action lawsuit. Avoid Green Mountain. They promise great savings and deliver high rates and exorbitant "money for nothing" fees.

Very simply, I called them to get electricity for my single family home, in a residential neighborhood with a residential electric meter. Apparently I called the wrong number and got the commercial department. The rate they charged me was 50% higher than the residential rate, plus additional taxes not charged on the residential rate.

Once I realized it in the second month I called it to their attention and they refused to back down. They kept repeating over and over again, "You signed the contract." Legally, they are right. Ethically, they are a company that ripped me off because their commercial department just wanted a quick sale. They could have easily said, "You called the wrong department. Let me transfer you." They chose not to.

I've cancelled my service and will NEVER use them again. Avoid them at all costs.

We had a great experience with Green Mountain. We had the Pollution Free Conserve 12 Choice plan, a 12 month fixed rate plan. We selected the plan online at powertochoose.org, and the transition from our old company to Green Mountain was seamless. Prior to this, we had a decent introductory rate with Reliant, but our Green Mountain rate was even better. We were continually surprised at how low our monthly bill was. We never encountered any hidden fees or changing rates. Green Mountain took care of the transition service for us, so I never had to bother with canceling our old plan. I love their renewable energy mission - even more so when it's offered at a very affordable rate! I would stick with Green Mountain for another year of service if only we could keep those introductory prices. Definitely recommend this energy company. Full disclosure: I actually never had any contact with their customer service because we never needed it! However, I didn't want to negatively impact this review by leaving it blank, so I gave it 5 stars like all their other areas of service.

So many negative reviews! Why? I've used them for 3 years. Service is great. Several say the billing date is really variable. My bill is always due on the 22nd or 23rd of the month - has been for 3 years. I always get a 1 year contract, so my rate never varies for a year. If you choose to go "month-to-month," yes , your rate can really go up! Also, the GME "Pass-through" charges are way lower than for conventional power companies, who always tell you, "The pass-through has nothing to do with us; it's strictly a pass-through." So why is GME so much lower on this? Somebody IS lying. But GME has certainly never lied to me.

My contract ended with Green Mountain energy in December because I moved addresses and didn't wish to pay a $150 transfer fee to transfer services. The services weren't canceled until January 19.

I called Green Mountain to notify them of this issue, and there was no urgency nothing. Instead I was on the phone for 15 minutes out of my work day, 10 of them being on hold while a ticket was issued to send ANOTHER refund check. The rep comes back on the phone and says it will be ANOTHER 21 days before I receive my check...She said there wasn't anything they could do about it and all they could do was send another check. This is terrible customer service. The check should be overnighted or something, but whatever. Never use them unless you want to be passed around and not get the service you deserve.

I've seen a lot of negative reviews on this site. Some of them have ground to stand on, most of them do not. If you see one that says, "They changed the rate on me," it's because they chose month-to-month. I've only ever done 1 year contracts and I've been using this company for 4 years. They've lowered my bill to an affordable rate all while doing it green. I used to pay $215 a month for a 3 bedroom house on the "cheapest" energy company rate before I found GME. They lowered my bill to $87 and I haven't paid a dime over that since. My current bills are around $28-$24 a month for a 1 bed 1 bath apartment, and I couldn't be happier. It's companies like these that are working to make living affordable. Not to mention you get updates on how many trees you've saved, CO2 emissions you've prevented and that's gratifying in it's own right. There are cheaper companies out there, but I personally would rather pay a little more for a Earth friendly company. I want my grandchildren to know what winter is like. Great company, very affordable rates, ONLY GREEN energy company in Texas, and one of the best customer services experiences I've literally ever had.

I was with Green Mountain Energy for 8 months and had no previous issues until now. Back in January, I submitted a payment that I initially thought posted. I came home from my aparement yesterday and noticed that my power was turned off. Long story short, Green Mountain had a glitch in their system where my payment was returned, even though I had money in the banke to cover the payment. I even doubled back with my bank to make sure that I had enough money to cover the payment at the time and I did. They informed me that it was an issue within their GME's system and that they weren't sure why my payment was returned. I was charged almost $60 in late fees, reconnection fees and disconnection fees. Even if I didn't pay my electricity bill (which I did), it was only 14 days past due. They cut my electricity off because of an error on their end and it was only 14 days late (because of an error on their end). I am highly dissatisfied and frustrated with the inconvenience of not having power when I got home that evening. They initially told me that it could take up to 3 days to restore my power, but then later retracted their statement and told me that since I had a smart meter it would be restored within 4 hours. I cancelled with Green Mountain the next morning and went with TXU instead. I will not continue to give my money to a company that cuts my power off because of an error on their behalf! Also, it takes too long to reach a customer service representative. There are too many prompts and information that you have to enter. When you're that upset, you don't want to waste 5 minutes speaking to an automated system just to speak to someone who can assist you. Good riddance!

Signed up for a year contract when I bought my condo. After a year the contract automatically changed to a month to month rate (evidently I was suppose to renew to another yearly rate) My monthly bill on my small one bedroom condo went from $70/month to $250/month after numerous phone calls over a 7 month period trying to figure out why my rate was so high one of the sales people admitted to me that I was on a month to month rate and if I wanted it to go back to the lower rate I needed to sign another 1 year contract. Not with this company!!!!!!!!!! Scammers!!!!

I have had problems since day one. First off I would not always get a bill then when I did it would have a late payment charge even though the payment was on time. Then I moved to another city but had to keep electric on for the place to be shown. I contacted them after I got a delinquent and disconnect bill even though I had never received the original bill. This has been ongoing for four months even though they have the correct mailing address. Somehow they manage to get the disconnect notices to me but not the original bill. I have called and called to get this resolved to no avail. They cut my electric off two days ago because of the charges that have accumulated from the disconnect and reconnect charges because I was paying only the current charges off of the disconnect notice. I will be hopefully signing the contract to sell before the end of the month and I am going to highly recommend they change to another electric company.

I have been A GME customer for over 2 years, but only because I haven't had time to research and find someone better. I am a single mom, working 2 jobs to make ends meet and usually pay a few days late because of the way my pay period falls. The due date is any where between the 29th of the month and the 2nd of following month. In addition to paying a late fee, they also charge a $20 fee, not for disconnection but just to send you a notice of disconnection... Which is sent by first class mail. For example, my bill was due on October 30th (the previous bill was due October 1st). I paid the bill on November 6th and 3 days later I received a disconnection notice adding $20 to my next bill on top of a almost $10 late fee. Now, I realize that to avoid Any fees my bill should be paid on time but that is just not possible sometimes. I am not disputing passing a late fee. You pay late, you are penalized I get that. My problem is #1 the fluctuating due date and #2 the fact that Any day after the due date they can send you a disconnect notice adding $20 to your next bill. I just got off the phone with CS and while the rep did waive the disconnect fee this one time, informed me that they can send a disconnect notice ANY TIME after the sure date. So if you're bill is due on the first and it's not paid on that day, you may get a disconnect notice a few days later. There is absolutely no grace period and with the fluctuating due dates, the Only way to avoid paying a late fee PLUS disconnect notice fee is to pay on our before the due date. I find this to be ridiculous. This is the only company I have ever dealt with that has no grace period. I work at a utility company and our due date is the same every month as well as the disconnection date. I will now take the time to do some research and see about finding a more customer friendly energy company.

I have been a Green Mountain Energy client for about +/- 2yrs. It wasn't until recently that I delved into the MINUTE DETAILS of my bill to notice I have been charged LATE FEES for not paying by THEIR GIVE DUE DATE, which IS NOT THE SAME DATE EVERY MONTH. Additionally, GME is not even allowing for any kind of grace period for making payment. So, if I pay 1day beyond their FLUCTUATING DUE DATE, THEY ARE CHARGING ME A LATE FEE THE FOLLOWING MONTH!!In my opinion, that is a HORRIBLE way to do business, an extremely POOR way to treat a client, and I will absolutely be taking MY BUSINESS elsewhere!! *livid* I know NO ONE who would PURPOSEFULLY sign up for this horrible customer service!!Therefore, I am giving GME poor reviews across the board. Obviously, there was ZERO mention to me in the set up/order process to NOTIFY ME of ANY GUIDELINES FOR MONTHLY LATE CHARGES BASED ON A MOVING MONTHLY DUE DATE, and I WILL NOT recommend this energy company to anyone!!STAY FAR AWAY... I only use about $56 a month in energy ($0.073 kwh), and my bill is consistently +$100 a month with all their fees... Trust me... LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR YOUR ENERGY SUPPLIER !!!I now rank GME up there with TXU and Reliant for over-charging and poor client services... Way to make yourselves successful, GME!!

So I have had green mountain for my, about 700 sq ft, apartment for about five months now. I do like that they send weekly updates as to how much energy you are using and cost, however, I have noticed the wattage and price have no correlation. My example, I used 76.7 kWh one week for $9.94 and the following week used 84.9 kWh for $11.26. My rate when I signed up was supposed to be 6.7 cents per kWh. The math never adds up. When your bill comes, they charge a base fee and delivery fee which also changed monthly. So add an extra 20 to 50 dollars for that to your usage. So total, somehow, my average price per kWh comes out to something like 17-18 cents per pay period. None of it makes sense to me. I have a friend who has the same plan, and they used 129.3 kWh and it cost them $7.62 while the following week they used 130.6 kWh and it cost them $5.02. Someone explain to me how all of this adds up because the math is not adding up. Over all it seems like nothing is consistent. I am very unhappy as a customer to know that someone with the same plan is using twice as much energy as me and paying half the price. I would not recommend going with this company.

I really wanted to like this company because of its dedication to the environment! However, I cannot say I do. First, billing is great. They give weekly updates of usage. Account management, not so much. They are trying to modernize their company to help with this but, at the moment customers who wish for phone or email to be primary contact are out of luck. Customer service is very polite. They help with whatever you need. However,15.6kW/hr negates this, at least for a graduate student. I cancelled my service because my energy bill was $200 dollars for my 919sqft apartment. Also, I changed the credit card information on our automatic debit and they still used the old information. This led to a late payment and lights being cut off. They did respond very quickly to the mistake but offered me a rate of 12.9kW/hr to make up for it. I went with another 100% wind company for 6.7kW/hr AND their first line of contact is phone and email, not traditional mail (more modernized form of communication is just my preference). So, in summary, the customer service is nice albeit indifferent. I would rather have a company that is less expensive and is so efficient that customer service is almost not needed.

First, this is a company owned by another (energy) company that has no real product. This mini-Enron brokers energy providers (people who put power into the grid) and energy distributors (the folks who own the lines and transformers in front of your house). They package this and send you a very green looking bill. As energy brokers, they have two things to offer the consumer: better prices or better service. This company appears to offer fairly decent prices but they offer HORRIBLE customer service. The way to get to an actual customer service human being is to press the option number for "new service". You will get a human being, then. They can then put in a queue to talk with someone about a billing or service problem. Beware, this bunch of paper pushers could not care less about you. To see the opinions or other fans, go to http://www.boycottgreenmountain.com/ For myself, see the complaint I filed with the Texas PUC, below. I am not certain whether Green Mountain is in violation of the law in what they did, but they certainly did not offer ANY customer service. These folks are real STINKERS! To Complaint Department, Texas PUC, I was a customer with Green Mountain Energy (GME) for the last 9 or 10 months. While a customer, GME changed my billing address without my request or notice. GME sent my bills to my service address. My service address has no mailbox or way to receive mail. Until the change of address by GME, all bills had been mailed to my company address. As a result of the un-requested change to my billing address, my bill of July 15, 2015 (date of invoice) went unpaid until my service was terminated around the 17th of August. I was not present in the home at the time of termination. I have attached the bill that remained unpaid until August 21, 2015. Due to the unauthorized change of billing address, I never received a bill or a notice of termination. If either the bill or the notice of termination was sent via first class or registered mail, then GRE would have gotten a notice that the mail had not been delivered. So, I was terminated within 35 days of being invoiced (an invoice never delivered) on an newly moved account. I was never called or emailed and the (new) address was never verified. I cancelled service with GME on the day of the termination and have moved to another provider. This should never have been allowed to occur. If what they did was legal, then the law should be changed. The service provider should be required to supply proof that bills or termination notices HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN DELIVERED. Whether this termination was somehow legal or not, the practice reflects quite badly on the company who did it. I would like you to investigate this claim.

They have hidden fees and the delivery charge is half the price of your usage. If your usage is $50, the delivery fee is $25, if your usage is $100, your fee is $50 etc.
You cannot even mention anything about what other plans they have (they do not tell you the rates or any other available plans and just sign you up) or they hit you with a $150 cancellation fee, although you are not cancelling and simply switching plans. They default you to their "water saving plan" which is expensive simply because of their jacked up delivery fees.
Imagine if time warner or At&t made you pay their cancellation fee when you wanted to switch to a different speed or sprint charged their fee when you switched phones.

For what? my little account?Please warn anyone looking for new service in Houston.After getting no where with phone customer support I went to email support Still no help just them trying to sell me on a contract.My correspondance:7/15/15Dear Victoria Thank you for choosing Green Mountain Energy electricity and helping to change the way power is made.In review of the account, there is not switch hold on the account, meaning if you wanted to switch, you could switch with no problem since there is no hold on the account. When you process a standard switch with a provider, it could take up to two weeks for the switch to take effect. If you wanted to cancel the switch and select a new switch date, you would have to contact the new provider you processed the switch with, to process that request. If your services with us were to end of August the 2nd, we would only bill you for power used at the location up until that date, then we would send you a final invoice within 7 days from 08/02. At this time your invoice of $187.82 is due by 07/24 and your account was eligible for a deferred payment plan if you were interested, but your account is set to be canceled with us and deactivated accounts would not be eligible for payment arrangements. I see that you are being charged high rates because you are on a month to month variable rate, where the price you pay will change each billing cycle and could either increase or decrease. If you were to cancel the switch, and are interested in remaining a customer, we would be happy to review the fixed rates available for the account. If you would like to have the switch date changed, please call the new provider, we are unable to process the request since only the new provider can. If you have further questions, e-mail us back or call us at 866-785-4668. Thank you!Dear Green Mountain,I was told I was not eligible for deferred payment plan before I made the switch. I also was forced into choosing Green Energy because the apartment building did not allow another provider. Now that it is under new management, i am allowed to switch to Reliant. I am told by Reliant supervisors that you have placed the hold on the account and refuse to release the date to earlier. I kept calling reliant based on your information and they assure me this is Green Mountains's doing. Reliant said they could change the date to this Friday but that you will not allow it. They say even if I cancel with them and redo the order, you still have placed a hld. If you have not placed a hold, than allow Reliant to make the date change like they have been trying to do all day with me.Also, why would I sign a contract based on the past billing cycles at 20 cents a kilowatt? It makes sense for me to start fresh with 5.4 cents with Reliant for the first 1000 kilowatts and 8.4 after that. The rep for Green Mountain offered me 12 cents and said my rates could still increase. I am forced by your company to leave your company. Customer service means helping people, not burning them.I know my phone calls were purposely disconnected when my account number came up. Even with this email, I am still getting the same reverb and run around. You are on repeat because it helps to frustrate customers and hopefully they go away but they do just to a state agency who can help them.PS. Your paper billing statement will be different form your online billing statement so i assume they are afraid of RICO

I stayed away from Green Mountain for years because their field sales staff TRASH every other electric provider including those that offer green/renewable energy. I finally went with them when they had a great offer on Texas' "Power To Choose" website. I also stopped seeing their field sales people. Had GM changed to an honest green energy provider? So,they had a great rate last year, and I went with them. In April 2015 my one year contract was about to expire, so I contacted GM to renew another year. I was told of a great rate, but they couldn't provide the Energy Facts Label until AFTER I signed up. That should have been a red flag for me. Believing the sales rep's cost per kWh, I renewed another year. A few days later I could see the Energy Facts Label for the renewed plan in my GM online account. It was nothing like the rep told me... MUCH more expensive. DECEPTIVE! I immediately called GM. Still in my "open enrollment" phase, I cancelled the new plan and will go with another company. I'll NEVER go back to Green Mountain! Since the time Texas opened up electricity competition I've been with about 5 different companies, and none of them were this sneaky!

I have had Green Mountain Energy service for 2 years and 3 months. At the establishment of my account I requested to be placed on their budget billing. For the duration of my account with them, I have ALWAYS paid my bill in full on or before the due date. At the end of the first 12 months, I was surprised with a bill that was 4 times my expected budget bill (at Christmas time). In spite of my perfect payment record, they refused to extend the due date, although I had never been warned, other than in fine print, that the budget bill would be reconciled at the end of the term. Okay, so I paid that by the due date to prevent disconnection. My mistake was beginning another term with them. They did adjust the amount of the budget plan so that it was more reflective of my usage. Fast forward another 12 months and this time at the end of the term, I received a CREDIT bill showing a credit of $254. Of course, based on prior experience, my assumption was that due to the budget billing adjustment and my conservation efforts that I had actually paid for more than I used. I did call them to see if that was an accurate assumption and was surprised to find out that no, there had been an operations error in their system and that corrected bills would be sent out within two weeks. In two weeks, I received a bill that was close to my expected budget payment. However, one week later, I received an additional bill that was twice my expected budget bill. It was due one week after the first bill. After spending 45 minutes on the phone with customer service and a supervisor, despite this having been a Green Mountain error and despite my perfect payment history, they refused to spread the additional amount due out and would only offer a two week extension. Obviously, that means I am stuck either paying a double bill this month or next month. They said that because I was already benefiting from budget billing that their system would not allow them to place me on any sort of a payment plan for the additional amount billed. In other words, they offer no flexibility in payments, regardless of your history with them or the fact that their own error created a financial hardship for "valued" customers. I will be paying off my balance and switching companies as soon as possible. I know that other companies offer green electric products and better customer experiences. I recommend that you think twice about choosing Green Mountain as your provider, and if you do, think even harder and read every bit of fine print before you choose to request "budget" billing with them.

Not really saving just paying for the claim of using renewable energy. What a mistake I chose doing business with this horrible company.

I initially had a great experience with my 6 mo policy that converted to monthly. My initial monthly rate was reasonable, but I noticed the rate was higher on my bill even though the link to my current contract showed a cheaper rate. It turns out Green Mountain does not update the monthly rate on the linked contract, so you have NO idea what the rate is until the end of the month. When I suggested they just update the contract, to show the current rate, three different supervisors told me the same story about adjustable rates. My complaint was about the misleading information they show on the current contract, not the fact that the rate was high. Oh well, time to change providers.

This is a dubious enterprise with unethical and unscrupulous practices.I had signed up for the company in a fair in Houston with my credit card auto-pay with the representative.After four months my credit card had sent a new card with new expiration date and I had not updated on their website.They had disconnected the service to my home on the 15th day. Called and gave them the new expiration date. In the next bill I saw the following chargesDisconnect service notice $20.00 (For sending a notice by First Class postal mail)Disconnect Request Fee $25.00Disconnect at meter $15.68Reconnect service Request Fee $15.00Standard reconnect at meter $15.68Late Fee $24.61They took about $120 for one late payment of 15 days. They disconnected the electric service instead of calling / emailing me about the credit card declining the autopay. My calls and complaints for refunding were all declined, so the truth about their unethical practices is published here.I will be contacting the BBB for the > $120 for the one time 15 day late payment due to changed in the credit card expiry date.

She assured me I would be sent a final bill. Green Mountain shut my service off on July 30, charged me for disconnection fee because of late payment and then charged me for service from Aug 1-Aug 7, because they reconnected service..???

At the time of deregulation, Green Mountain (GM) was the only company offering renewable energy. It cost more, but I chose GM for that reason. I've been with them ever since. I even sold GM for a year, because the company is good and I believe in clean energy. As a customer, I have never had a problem with billing or customer service. The website is excellent. I am only considering, and I mean only considering, switching companies because there are now companies with competing wind/renewable energy plans, but most look like bad companies, except Champion, whose rate is comparable to GM. Maybe the grass isn't really greener on the other side of the fence, and this cow will stay home.

I called within one day of getting information on the internet to say I was not interested. 4 Weeks later I get a final bill from my Electric Provider, Reliant saying I didn't have service with them. It took me three days, 5 hours worth of phone calls to my apartment, the apartment headquarters, Oncor, Reliant and Green Mt. to get something done. They can sign you up and get your service going in one day but they can't get it switched back when it's there mistake for two months. 0 for Customer Service because they disconnected me four times, said they would resolve it and then didn't.

She replied that if I check the fine print on a link somewhere it tells me also that there was some kind of promo and now I have to pay triple if not more.

I recently signed up with Green Mountain at a booth at the state fair. I told the sales lady that we have solar panels and are on a solar plan with TXU. She said they have a solar plan that buys back the power at retail for the first 500 kilowatts and then wholesale after that. I liked the plan then asked to make sure we were getting the solar plan. She said no but this would get the power started but to call in a few days to customer service and they would "gladly" change me over to the solar plan. Well now I call in and after talking to 4 people I am told that since I am already on a plan it will cost $200 to transfer to the solar plan. I finally had to get a supervisor who said yes there is a $200 charge for changing plans so early but she would send in a dispute. I asked why I had to beg for them not to charge me. I did just what they told me to do. I think the sales person was not well trained. However maybe the company just does this to generate additional income. I would never have signed up if I knew they were going to charge 200 to go into the solar plan. I would have stayed with TXU now I wish I had.

My Summer Energy contract was expiring on 6/8/2014, and my rates were jumping way up so I hunted for the cheapest company I could find (for <1000 KWH) that didn't have totally horrible reviews, and I settled on the GME month to month plan at 8.4 cents. I have been watching the rate carefully each month, and it has never increased to-date, and even dropped down to 8.23 cents this month. I use <1000 every month so I end up paying more per KWH (~9.1 cents) with the base charge included, but I looked today (10/7/14) and it's still the best rate I could find for <1000 KWH. I had no issues other than them charging me the $6.95 fee for the last 3 days of the previous "ONCOR Month" (I switched over to GME 3 days before ONCOR read the meter). When I complained, and after explaining for 30 minutes WHY this was a problem like 5 different times, the CSR finally agreed that, yes, it was dumb to charge me a full month's base charge for 3 days of service, and said he would make a note to credit the amount back to my account the next month, but it never happened. I use automated billing and have had no hassles. I did request the $100 rebate after 90 days that I was told about when I signed up, but I have heard nothing back yet. It says 6 to 8 weeks, though, and I submitted my request on 9/10. Maybe my good-ish experience is rare, or maybe only the people who have issues put their reviews here (vs. many more that don't). :-)

I have been a Green Mountain Energy customer for almost 6 years (since December 2008). They had high prices from the beginning; but I originally accepted that, based upon the fact that I was buying renewable energy. However, beginning last summer (2013), the prices (month-to-month, no contract) began to skyrocket. As such, I selected a six month contract that literally cut my bill in half. When the six month contract expired, I checked the options for renewal. The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) of the month-to-month plan showed lower pricing than any of the contracts (with significant termination fees). I decided to keep the month-to-month; but wiser for wear, I would closely monitor the price (by checking the Electricity Facts Label for my current plan regularly on their website). The pricing was in accordance with the EFL for two months after the contract expired. When my bill increased by $0.02/kWh on the third month, I checked the EFL, it had not changed. What was I missing? It was a busy month, I didn't look deeper. Now, on my most recent billing cycle, the price has been raised by another $0.02/kWh ($0.04/kWh higher than the EFL states). OK, I smell something rotten. The EFL states that "this price is the price that will be applied during your first billing cycle; this price may change in subsequent months at the sole discretion of Green Mountain." Well, that is to be expected, the contract is month-to-month; but, the EFL will change when the price changes, right? Wrong! As stated in the EFL: "For information about the current price, you may call us at 1-866-785-4668." This is not a phone number dedicated to updating you with current pricing; it is simply their customer "service" phone number. There are no automated options to check your pricing. Basically you have to talk to a customer service representative (CSR). OK, I'm a long time customer; they will be able to work something out that makes me happy, right? Wrong! Speaking with the CSR, he explains there is nothing he can do. OK, can I speak to someone with more authority? After waiting on hold a few minutes, the same CSR says the only thing that can be done is to sign a new contract. I explain to him that is the last thing I will do without getting some degree of satisfaction. He inquires about what would make me happy. I suggest a rebate. He states that would be impossible. I request an adjustment to this month's bill (there is still one week before payment is due, via auto-pay). No can do. Further, it is explained to me that the only way I can know what I will be charged on a given month is to wait for the bill to arrive. Now, I already know that they will not budge on price adjustment; how can awaiting the bill to check my pricing possibly help me? No explanation is offered as to why the online EFL is not updated; it just isn't, ever, unless you sign a new contract. I explain that amounts to a deceptive trade practice; further, since I am not under contract, I will be leaving Green Mountain Energy. Coming to this website, reading the reviews, I see I am not alone when it comes to Green Mountain not caring about customers. It may not do any good, but I do intend to file a complaint with the Public Utilities Commission (PUC).

I've renewed my one year contracts twice. I've had only one issue and that was just recently, I switched products and then changed my mind and wanted to switch back. The CSR assured me I could, but it didn't happen. Needless to say, when my monthly bill arrived I went out to check and sure enough I was enrolled in the plan I said I didn't want. I was able to sort this out with a supervisor, she checked the calls and the account notes and names and dates. so I'm back on my variable plan, which is way lower than the fixed plan they had mistakenly contracted me into. I liked my experience with GME. I'm switching because their rates right now are 4 cents a kwH more than what others are charging fixed rate and they can't meet or beat their offer. So...market forces are why I will be switching out. If, after my contract with the new provider lapses and I'm shopping around again, I'd give them a go if they are competitive. My few customer service calls were always answered, even in the evening and when we had an outage once, they were very helpful, even though it was an Oncor thing.

Have been with Green Mountain for over 10 years. A while back went on a variable rate plan which I was told was tied to electricity spot market. I was fine paying market rate. That was good for a year or two, and then inexplicably the rate jumped from $0.10/kwh to $0.17/kwh. Multiple calls and emails to customer support received the explanation that variable rates are variable. Not a single person could provide any basis for why my rate almost doubled. Simple case of price gouging. Yes they were legal since the rate was just under the maximum allowed by the PUC, but this company is NOT ETHICAL AND NOT GREEN. STAY FAR AWAY.

I signed up for one of the low rate 3 or 6 month contracts that entice people to switch providers, and I wanted to try out Green Mountain Energy. The energy facts label stated the term was for "3 Months". My service began on April 30, and somehow my guaranteed rate ended on July 7. I received 2 months and a week of a guaranteed rate. My final bill was a 30-40% increase in cost. When I called to discuss the issue with their customer service, I was hung up on the first time only a few minutes into the conversation. I called back again, and after the customer service representative told me the only thing she could do was sign me up for another plan and contract term, I asked to speak to a supervisor. She sends me to the supervisor queue where I wait on hold for about ten minutes before the phone ringing once and me getting disconnected again. I decided to attempt to resolve this through email communication since their customer service department is only open when most people are working and I can't sit on the phone with them for 2 hours to resolve the issue. After numerous emails back and forth with the customer service representative, who is generally slow to respond, I ask for my case to be forwarded to a supervisor again. The representative told me I would be called within 48 hours by a supervisor. I have yet to be called and it is past 48 hours. While most electric providers provide calendar month contract terms based on the words on the energy facts label, Green Mountain Energy's Terms of Service state that "The regular monthly billing period for each ESI ID is established by your transmission and distribution service provider ("TDSP") based on their meter read schedule." All other providers I have used provide guaranteed rates based on calendar months regardless of how many billing cycles may be present in that time frame. A 3 month guaranteed contract may have 4 bills due to billing cycles being offset. Based on what Green Mountain feels their contract states, which is not clearly outlined between the EFL and TOS, They only provide guaranteed rates for the full contract term noted on the EFL for 3% of their customers. The remaining 97% are getting less than the term noted on their EFL. They claim this is not deceptive, but it is not adequately explained to the consumer. Their customer service doesn't seem to care either.

Don't make the mistake of letting your bill go past due. GME's computer will automatically turn the service off, but for some reason, immediately paying the bill through the computer doesn't turn the service back on. So having a "smart meter" seems more of an advantage to the company than to me.I've had the service for 4 years, and will be considering other providers. Why? Like most conpanies, GMEis more interested in getting newcustomers than servicing their old ones.

Green Mountain Energy runs a "bait and switch" system. They will lure customers with cheap prices and then they will constantly and relentlessly increase rates.

I found out that if I pay the bill 1 day after the due date, I get a $20 late "notice" fee. Most other electricity companies charge a percentage late fee. Paying $20 extra on a $40 bill while I was on vacation, for being few days late, is absolutely insulting and unreasonable. This is flat out robbery.Green Mountain Energy has anti-customer small print they hide in their agreement legalese. They do business in a dishonest manner.Do not take the bait.

We signed a 7 month contract with GM energy when we bought our new house, and it has turned out to be the best, most honest company we have purchased electricity from in Texas. We've been burned by Reliant and more recently by Amigo. With Green Mountain, our rate was what they said it was. There were no shenanigans, just a low rate for 100pct wind power. They let us know when our contract was ending and I'm wishing that we had just stuck with them. My only complaint is that they wanted to raise our rate if we stayed with them, like every other TX electricity company does. So, we switched, got scammed by Amigo, and now we are trying Infinite Energy. It would have been cheaper to stay with a good company. I wish TX would just end deregulation or would protect consumers better from these vultures at the energy companies.

Started off rocky and just got worse. they told me that they would give me a good rate, told me I would have to pay a small deposit and that I would get a $100 gift card after 6 months of service. sounds great right? yup to me to so I signed up and got to know the real company. the rate never seemed that great as all of the additional fees started getting added to the bill, then the deposit was increased by a $100 more than the one they told me they would require. the long wait for customer service on the phone was explained away by telling me that their systems had just got updated so delays were longer than normal (found out nope the hour to 2 hr trying to get thru to a person was normal). then after only being with them a couple of months I received a small bill. seemed reasonable as it was spring and I wasn't using the heat and hadn't really started using the air much yet. then a week later I got a much larger bill. that was due only a few days after the first bill was due. I attempted to call to find out why was I being billed twice to get the most rude child (cant call her grown) after being on hold for over an hour to be told that I should have looked at the back of the page of the 2nd page of the bill at the fine print in the middle of the page telling me that cause of switching over account numbers my bill may be delayed. i asked for a supervisor and was placed on hold for another 1hr 40m when i finally gave up and hung up after realizing i had literally been on the phone with this company for nearly 3hrs and hadn't gotten anything resolved. i called back the next day and after an additional hr i spoke with someone and asked her which one of these were the true due dates due for both of these bills. she told me the 2nd due date. i repeated this back to her several times. she said yes mam the due date is the 2nd date. so i paid the bill on the 2nd due date. i knew something wasn't right when i paid it and it said it stopped my disconnect. so sure enough my next bill showed i had been considered disconnect for not paying the first bill on that due date. and i was charged the insane disconnect fees. then when i called to find out why i was told i have now forfeited the $100 gift card they promised me cause i had paid late. i tried to call and speak to someone else as they are always saying this phone call is recorded i was demanding they go back and listen to the recording where their representative told me that the due date was the date on the 2nd bill and i paid by that date. they told me they were putting me on hold for a supervisor and an hour on hold i have decided im thru. my contract ends and i will end also. im so tired of giving my money to companies that have little to no respect for me as a customer and green mountain has joined that list. if you never need to speak to a person, never want a problem resolved, don't care about additional fees then this is the company for you...if you like being treated like a valued customer than find a different company!!

After using Green Mountain for nearly 2 years, I'm looking for a new provider. I have had Automatic Payment set up via Bank of America - and there have been months when I was charged twice. There have been months when a letter from GME told me they received no payment and are disconnecting my service. Just received another letter like this today. My previous experience with customer service was so discouraging (1 hour on the phone - being transferred from one incompetent person to another), that I will not put myself through that experience again. Time to switch.

After you sign a contract with Green Mountain you should expect your Terms of Service in the mail. Make sure to read over the Non-Recurring Fees and Charges on page 2.$5.95 if you choose to pay your bill by telephone$5.00 per bill period for copies of billing records...$20.00 for EACH disconnection and termination notice we send you.$5.00 each time we call you to remind you your payment is due.and so on....I've never been with a electric company that charges for so many reasons!

This company is beyond horrible. Expect to be on hold for >one hour. This could be a wish on their end for folks to give up and disconnect. I had an order to discontinue service - found out I needed to extend the service for 5 additional days. This took 2 1/2 hours on the phone to accomplish - just found out they never discontinued the service and 7 weeks later they are still charging me. I've been on hold for 20 minutes trying to resolve - do not work with this company.

I was forced to get Green Mountain Energy by my landlord, and it is terrible. I get misdirected email from other power companies, tons of spammy email, and charges piled upon charges. In nine months of service, I was late with a payment once, because I had been traveling. I paid ten days late, but they had already mailed me a disconnection notice, along with a huge additional fee I was forced to pay. They explained, though it NEVER showed up in any paperwork ahead of time, that they count not from the due date, but from the day they mail the bill, which is ridiculous. I have never been with a company that is both so lackadaisical in their own affairs and so punitive when it comes to mine. If you can avoid them, do it!

In December I transferred apartments and did not receive a bill. After not Receving a bill f or almost two months I went online and paid the bill. I also signed up for ebill. After signing up I clicked on the screen for my account information I discovered that they changed my service address and nit my mailing address. In April I was sitting in my room and the lights go out. I discovered that they were cut off due to non payment. This happened without receiving a paper bill, ebill or disconnect notice. Disconnection notices are required under the law. I did not contact Green Mountain and I should have. I just took care of the bill. Well about a month later I get a call while at work from my disabled father who resides with me that the lights are off again. I paid the bill. I did go online and sent an e-mail via there customer service. A couple of hours later I did receive a response. They said it did not show I was signed up for ebill and fixed it were I will receive ebills and paper bills. They also waived the fees associated with the disconnection. I will be contacting them to see if they are going to waive the one from April.

I get home today to find that my electricity has been cut off when days earlier the customer service showed that I paid my bill, not once but trice.

I get no call about this disconnect is about to happen, where I could have resolved this matter then. I don't get this company, Green Mountain Energy. They brag about how my money is saving the environment. But, the customer service laugh when you tell them that I have to record the damages to my place from them cutting off my electricity. And, to boot, they tell me it can take up to two days tomy electricity back on. It only took them a moment to remotely disconnect it. Is it really that hard to cut ithe electricity back on?F*ck Green Mountain Energy. It's time to save the green in my wallet and dump their non-customer service asses.

I am so sick of dealing with their accounting department that I am switching providers. Every month they claim that they didn't receive my payment for electricity at my business no matter if I paid with my bank's bill pay or sent them a check. I get a notice saying they are going to cut off my electricity. I call them and they tell me they received the payment but it was late. They told me that the problem was that my bank's bill pay doesn't send out the check until the day it's due. I tried sending the check myself. I mailed the check in Fort Worth a week before the bill was due in Dallas. They still claimed it was late and charged me a late fee. When I call their customer service, they are usually uncaring and sometimes rude. I have used Green Mountain at my residence for years and, as long as I remember to sign up for a new contract before the old one expires, they are fine.

The lady told me to just call and change it was I knew the exact date. Having working with someone for 30 to 45 minutes, she finally told me that she canceled what the first lady had set up and that I had to wait 48 hours and call back and they woudl reset me up. I called back adn supposedly that had it all set and was to cancel by service with the other carrier. They never canceled my service. When I got the bill from my current company, I called them and the rep couldn't even locate my account even when I gave her my account number. I told her that if were this bad already maybe I should someone else who did want and business and she okay, thank you. wow! I would highly recommend not using this company.

First complaint is that they continue to advertise being "green," yet refuse to put my account on paperless billing. They offer it repeatedly, and I repeatedly tried to sign up for it, yet never ceased to receive paper bills. So long, trees!Second is that when contract expires we are thrown to a much higher rate. This may be standard practice, but it certainly does not inspire loyalty. Being willing to look past these issues, we requested a new contract and were refused the rates on Power to Choose. They started with over 12 cents/kwh, then when we said we'd just switch they said 11something, then again we refused (the online price was 9.3) and they offered high 10. Why not immediately give loyal customers of many years your best rate? They started out trying to screw us and never would come down to the advertised rate. So, we got the advertised rate of 9.7 from one of their competitors. Loyalty is for suckers, fellow customers! This company will screw you if they can, so be prepared to shop around every time your contact comes up and be willing to jump ship.

I've been with Green Mountain for almost 1 year now and I am about to close my account. This company does not honor their promotions. When I signed up, I was informed that after 3 months, I would get a $100 gift card. It has been 1 year now and I still have not received the gift card. They come up with all kinds of excuses when I email and call about the gift card. Also, I had an auto-pay mixed up with my account and they charged me all kinds of fee. They didn't informed me of the mixed up until the next billing statement, by then all the fees were charged. When I called them to correct the problem, I was on hold for 30 mins before I could speak with a representative. After the situation was corrected, the fees were credited to my account but that didn't help that I wasted so much of my time. Never again with this company. They are expensive and dishonest!

This company has the nerve to put a switch hold on my account after my bill was paid in full way before the scheduled payment plan. Then they tell me to wait 10 days to have it removed by another company ERCOT. Why does it take this long is my first question?Then if I am not in a contract and are a monthly customer, why should I have to wait to have it removed?I did not wait to pay your money way ahead of the due date. The reps and supervisors are all ignoramus to every extent. Plus I love how they read from scripts and make up answers when you ask a question. It is very obvious this company hires anyone and the owner should be ashed of themselves for allowing employees like these people at their company. If you are looking for a company that lies, are deceitful, finds way to scam for more money, and with horrible billing organization then this is the best one for you. I hope this company goes down hill asap. I wish I would have listened to the reviews before signing up. But since I was looking for a company that would give me energy asap with no deposit I went with them. I guess if I would have paid another company a deposit I would be happier, because the others that I looked at have nothing but great reviews. It is also amazing how much money I have paid as a monthly customer verses what other companies charge. I guess you pay for what you get with this company. No wonder they offer no deposits and high rates, because they are scam artists to every extent. I sent a complaint to the PUC already and are in the midst of having them help me get my hold removed. It is sad that you have to wait to leave a company that you paid the bill for early and are not in a contract with. I advise everyone to run as far away from this company as possible. The high rates and no deposits are not worth it at all! I regret being with them for a little over a year. I am waiting for my hold to be removed and still shopping around with other companies for great rates for monthly customers. As soon as my hold is removed, I will do all that I can to make sure that everyone I know and run into that move into the DFW area to not become their customer! Now wait 10 days for that one Green Mountain Scam Artists!!!!

I signed up with Green Mountain shortly after Texas first de-regulated the market. I chose them because their contract terms were fair. Other companies included egregious and one-sided contracts. The Green Mountain contract was fair and balanced. Also, Green Mountain, at that time, offered renewable energy generated in Texas. The meant that my consumption increased demand in Texas. The other companies played a shell game that would have no real impact on renewable demand. I was particularly pleased in September 2013 when I had PV generation installed on my roof. Dealing with Green Mountain was very easy. They walked me through the process fro change to my account in advance. They told me who to call when my PV was online. On the day, everything went beautifully. Now, my contract with Green Mountain is, again, more than fair. I am getting the best price anywhere for my excess generation. This is a deal that I could not find with other retail providers.

Due to internal system upgrade issues within their company and their inability to handle their call volume, it's very difficult to get in touch with someone.

For nearly 3 weeks I attempted to speak with someone and after being on hold for over 30 minutes each time, I finally hung up. Not until waiting an hour and 20 minutes, was I able to got in touch with a representative. Unfortunately, they were unable to help and once again, I was on hold for another 45 minutes before I could speak with a "supervisor".

Since I started my service with Green Mountain, the average bill is about $250 or $300 with inexplicable fees--and I have a 1,600 square foot home--Comparable bills for a home my size in my neighborhood--about $75. But here's the kicker--this December, I had a tough time paying this exorbitant bill--They were absolutely unsympathetic, even though I'm always paying faithfully on my bill. They offered a Deferred payment plan..which split up the remainder of my bill. They never disclosed that just for offering me a deferred payment plan--they ADDED an additional charge/fee of $85--this ON TOP of the existing usage charges. This is ethically just wrong--To hit someone who is STRUGGLING, with another shock of $85. Awful--they take advantage and exploit those who have run into any sort of financial challenge. Get out of Green Mountain as soon as you can--When summer hits, they will strike with unfathomable rates and bills full of fees that are inexplicable. And get this--they've shipped all their customer service work to agents across the border. You will never be able to speak to a manager, to get anything rectified. They do this for one reason--so you will just pay their exorbitant rates or get disconnected. Going green--ends up in a nightmare of Corporate Greed? I wish it were not so...but since I've used their service, this has been my experience. Worst. Ever.

I have religiously used GME since 2008. I usually signed up for a 6 month contract - - it was just that, 6 months. I am reading all of these horrible reviews and saying to myself, "you didn't pay on time" or "you signed up for month-to-month" or "you didn't renew your contract". I have moved again, and the transition of my move was wonderful! There are NO HIDDEN FEES! The KWh charge includes all delivery fees..... Working at a Senior Apartment community, I see the HORRIBLE things other companies are doing to their consumers. GME has always delivered top notch customer service, explained the difference of average billing vs paying the bill each month. (paying bill each month is by far the way to go), however, if you come on hard times, they will work with you.Yes, I am one who has had to pay the disconnect fee more than once. It is not GME's responsibility to remind me when my payment is due. It is mine.All in all, GME is an absolutely wonderful company who is doing good for way more than have indicated here. Remember as you read reviews, more people are quick to gripe and complain than are the ones to report the good.

When I logged into my account to pay my bill I have a ZERO balance, for two weeks I saw this. I received an email stating I had a high past due amount. Again when logging into my account and checking my bill details it shows a previous balance of ZERO, yet a past due amount. I called into the company to have this explained. I was hung up on, they acted like they couldn't hear me and when I finally managed to talk to someone, I was told their system has been malfunctioning. No one from their company called or in any other way alerted their customers to this. They did NOT confirm energy usage, even though their system is malfunctioning. They refuse to correct the amount. Not only this but for the past four or five months I have been charged double what I should have been. I have not changed my consumption in any way, yet my current (minus their false past due amount) bill reflects what I should have actually been charged the entire time. I have called in numerous times about that, but no one wanted to listen, investigate or do anything about it. Their answer is always "There's nothing I can do about it, you have to pay it".

I recently switched to GME after we noticed an increase with our old provider. We noticed one of their reps at the entrance of Walgreens ( red flag there...) and so we started talking to her. She fed us alot of bull. Saying that the rate per KW was the lowest, there was no contract, and they would pay for the cancellation fee for canceling the service with my old provider. Once I switched my old company sent me a cancellation fee which i tried to talk to GME customer service who stated they don't pay for the cancellation fees when you switch even though my bf and I heard the lady say they did! SO that was the first lie. The next month we received the highest bill ever. For a small apartment which stays empty most of the day a $200 bill should not be expected. SO once again we tried to call customer service, we got hung up on 4 times!! I tried a different option on the menu when you call ( start new service option) and I was on hold for 45 mins even though they said it would be more than 5 min wait..... so i hung up on them. I'm currently searching for a better electric company with better rates and customer service!!!

It is currently March 5th and just now learned that my apartment complex main office got a bill from GME for my unit. I called GME to ask what was going on and they cant even find that my account existed. If doesnt exist, how do I have an account number and email confirmation stating that my service has been set up? Because of this, I am incurring penalties in the amount of $50. The new cycle has started again, which means I will get hit with another $50 all because I was under the impression GME set up my account PROPERLY. A quote from email confirmation states:"Dear XXXXXXXX,Thank you for your commitment to renewable energy. By powering your home with Green Mountain Energy electricity, you are helping to change the way power is made.Whats next?If you havent already, please register at My Account with your new account number: 42369638. Remember to use the last name and phone number you provided during enrollment.Enroll in Tree Free billing - it..."I called and total talk time so far has been 2.5 hours and still nobody knows why.

I am a current customer of GME because I am still under one of their 24 month contracts. I have had 400 dollar bills for the last three months. I have a 800 sq ft Apt. My parents have a 3000 sq ft HOUSE and use a thousand more KW than I do and their bill is CONSTANTLY 150 dollars cheaper than mine. It makes no sense. Then I noticed my contract had me locked into 13.09 a KW. I emailed customer service about this and never got a response. So then I tried to call customer service. After being on hold for an hour they told me it was going to be $295 to cancel or even get a different plan with less of a KW. So now I have to have my heat on 67 degrees just to get the bill to be under 400 dollars but still 15$ shy of 300. Thanks green mountain energy. Its easier to make your customer suffer rather than offering an ideal service. as soon as I get an address change i am disconnecting and never looking back. The cancel fee is cheaper than a bill that high.

Green Mountain Energy Philadelphia, paThis is the worst and most corrupt company I have found. My wife was lied to many times at sign up by their incorrect information. Trying to correct this was a nightmare. They said they could not for another billing cycle. I have a solar collector but do not know who is getting the power I generate. They said they gave credits for produced power by us at the sign up then said they do not after the sign up. They wanted proof of production which is not to be had anywhere. They, I feel, new this from the start. DO NOT CONNECT.

Green mountain gave me a super competitive rate, 2 years of price protection and the amazing NEST thermostat! The NEST alone has lowered my bill 25%. The sales rep that came to my home was fully informed....thank you so much!

Not Worth The Accounting / Billing Headaches

It all sounds great - "green" energy. I guess they put all their money into something other than accounting software. I have been in business for 31 years and they take the prize as the most screwed up accounting ever encountered. No one is a close second. I cringe every time I see a Green Mountain bill - knowing it will require my time and patience to resolve something. Using online bill pay does not work with them - you have to use direct pay through their system to make sure your payment is posted on time. The topper - after thinking I had finally cleared up all my billing issues - I received a large credit but no one at GM can identify why. Just to add insult, there is a $ .66 "Past Due Penalty" on my credit. At this point I would rather swim in oil and roll in coal than recommend Green Mountain for anything other than a good example of how NOT to run a utility company. I am not a fan of TU Electric but I never had any issues with them. The time wasted on the phone kills any savings at the meter. I will say their customer service people are nice and very apologetic, but it rings hollow after a while.

Highest Bill Ever

Highest bills we've ever had in our life. We had a 3K sq ft home and our bills were almost $900 in the summer and now we are in a 5k home, and AFTER switching, our bills are about $200 a month in the summer and $95 in the winter. We are very conservative and keep our home at 78 and never keep lights on unless needed. If you feel like throwing money out your car window, then this is the company for you.

I have only been a customer for 2 months and have experienced outrageous high bills! I live in a one bedroom 700sq ft apartment! Work all day and hardly home! No way I am using as much kWh as they are billing me for. I moved from a 1100 sq ft apartment in which my highest bill was $110 ! I hoped for a much lower electric bill once I down sized and unfortunately that has not been so. I miss my old electric provider (Coserv) wish they serviced my area. I have called GME to complain and explain that my kWh usage has never been as high as they bill me for, my routine hasn't changed, I am never home, everything stays unplugged, all lights off, I lower my thermostat, do as much as possible to save energy but I am getting bills for $200 ! For a 700 sq ft one bedroom apartment!! I unfortunately have 4 more months with them but will pay the fee to switch if I have to if these high bills continue. If you are in the market to switch, do your research and be cautious if your considering GME.

Average billing

Do not recommend you get average billing with this company. They provide a random monthly amount when you sign up and at the end of year they send you whatever balance in the account. This place does not understand the meaning budget billing..... Call customer service and they told me that simply reviewing the email I get from them with the monthly balance is not enough. Why in hell will want to have an electronic bill or average billing.

Been with this company for 10 years. At the 10 year mark they jacked my bill up 3 times more than usual with no warning. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!! Did the calculations against a friend of mines bill and figured out these assclowns have gotten me for thousands. Its my fault for not keeping up with the current rates and now the bills are so high they cant be ignored. If you pick this company after all these reviews you deserve what you get.

Super Pissed from Spring on February 4th, 2014

We're sorry to lose you as long-time customer and thank you for your 10-year commitment to cleaner energy. While we always aim to offer our customers competitive renewable rates, we aren't always the lowest priced retailer out there. Whereas our variable priced plans are subject to change, our contract plans allow customers to lock in rates that are guaranteed to stay the same for the entire contract term. Email us at Feedback@greenmountain.com if you'd like to give us another chance and we can discuss term plan options.

Never have I ever spoken to such a disrespectful "mananger" my mother who is older was yelled at.. Interrupted and hung up on! GREEN MOUTAIN ENERGY sucks and I do not reccomend to anyone. My mother had a bill this month of 500!! That is absurd.. She's never had a bill that high and when she called to ask why they told her there is nothing they can do to help.

Michelle from Arlington on February 4th, 2014

Hi Michelle. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's recent experience. Can you email us at Feedback@greenmountain.com so we can talk about the situation? We really do want to make things right.

Well, a guy in the grocery was all over me, and I needed to find a lower price. His GM met that. He said to watch out the non-fixed price would drift up. He was right, but it seems they're also changing how they do it---it's certainly not an apparent function of actual usage. It's my 4th month, price up several cents/kWh; and I've got to get out!! Whoever paid the Legislators for deregulation is evil (the industry?) and so is the Legislature. Citizens no longer have "representation" OR redress of grievance. And look how the PUC allowed Smart Meters and won't have real hearings to reverse it?!?!! ARE THERE NO HONEST MEN LEFT IN GOV????
