PERFECT COMPANY TO USE!!
Great rates! Nice people! Terms are clearly stated! Ila from Spring TX

Excellent company with great customer service
These people have been wonderful to us and their rates could not be beat. Since we conserve on our utilities, we rarely go over the 500 kWh per month and they have never charged us that extra fee for not using enough electricity.

We have been with them 3 years and I am about to renew for another year.
Marilyn Z from Frisco

The best light company
I have had several other companies and Summer beats them in everything. Great pricing, great and super friendly customer service. Its a company that wants to have their customers happy. I will never switch any where else. I have recommended several friends and family to them and they have all been happy as well.

Decent, but nothing extraordinary

Good rates to start almost 3 years ago, but in the last 12-14 months I have seen my rate increase by more than 40% with no explanation. Even with their newest renewal options being lower than their rates 3 months ago, it is still a 35% increase in the last 12 months with is ridiculous. I'm going to call and see if they will offer me a rate closer to a year ago before I switch companies as I have already found several in my market that will beat them by almost 25% on average charges on both a 12 and 24 month lock in rate.

Customer Service is a Joke - Read other reviews

just check out their reviews, 46% 1 star ratings should tell you everything you need to know. Pricing is decent up front, then they fee you to death.

I had an issue almost immediately with them denying my Letter of Credit to waive deposit even though I had been with my previous provider for 2+ years with no incident. I have never missed a bill payment but for them to charge a $450 deposit, that will "only be returned as a statement credit" is ridiculous. I basically had to pay for 4-6 months of service up front.

Worst company ever, stay away! Check out TriEagle Energy, TXU, or someone else, anyone else!

What do customers think about Summer Energy?


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 Summer Energy 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!
