Decent rate and the lights are still on

Now that I've covered all the nice things in the title...here's the rest of the story:
My previous provider raised rates - I looked for a better deal on PowerToChoose and found this company. I filled out my enrollment with a requested switch date. They did indeed switch on my requested date...but the first I heard from them about it was ~2 weeks later when they sent the first bill (here's how much you owe us...oh BTW welcome new customer). They are not set up for BillPay through Bank of America and it's a confusing situation: MidAmerican Energy (apparently a utility in Iowa) is set up in BofA's system, but MidAmerican Energy *Services* is not, and they both use the same logo with a typeface so small I defy anyone except company employees to recognize the difference. I found this out after a call to "customer service" and got a bit of attitude about not having discerned this on my own. Anyway, I am now set up to send them paper checks through the BofA BillPay system - seems like we could do better in the year 2018, but it will get the job done.

I can't really complain because, like I said, they're giving me a pretty decent rate and the lights are still on. There's really not anything wrong here, but from my perspective, I'm not impressed with the way they run the business. I expected more from a Berkshire Hathaway company...but then again, who am I to question Warren Buffett's business strategy. Maybe the lesson here is that customer relationship management is actually an unnecessary business expense and this is the kind of customer service we should expect once the rest of the business community discovers this for themselves and follows suit.

Wow

Totally blown away with the rates. We never asked for them to be our suppliers and when we received our first Bill we knew something was wrong ,so we called and cancelled their services and thought maybe we should try to do better with what we are consuming as for as electric. We quit using the clothes dryer altogether turned off a air conditioner and guess what? Are bill went up 95 dollars. Crazy i know somehow we still have to pay it.

What do customers think about MidAmerican Energy Services?


That depends on who you ask. There will always be someone who feels wronged by a company, no matter how good they actually are. The average MidAmerican Energy Services customer review is 0 / 5 stars. Keep in mind, consumers will go out of their way to complain far more often than they will to give praise.

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


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