Do NOT use!!
I was a happy Reliant customer. A WTU sales rep came to the door and basically sold me on their service. I have a house with a detached garage. The garage has its own separate power meter. My ONE and ONLY request I had with WTU was that I had one account with both meters on it. I was assured by the salesman as well as WTU over the phone that that wouldn't be a problem at all.
My first bill came and it is indeed two entirely separate accounts. Even further, the garage account has "garage" as part of the street address. My postman told me that is not a valid address to the USPS and it threw up flags on their sorting equipment. Calling WTU to fix the problem resulted in a 2 hour 55 minute phone call. Which I was going to be charged a $2.00 reconnect fee as well as a $50.00 deposit -- for which I AM ALREADY A CUSTOMER!! Fixing the address issue is an impossibility according to the 5 people I spoke with at WTU. Apparently, having one account with two meters is just something their system isn't designed to handle. Reliant had no issues with this at all. When I discovered the error, it was 31 days after signing up. 1 day past the 30 day limit to cancel service.
When all was said and done, I just had them cancel the entire request and leave the screwed up address and the two entirely separate accounts in my name. (I'm *NOT* paying them $52.00 for them to fix their mistake). So thankfully the post office knows who I am and where I live. For the next two years, every single time I get a bill now, I'll be reminded what a screwup this company is just by looking at where they addressed the bill to.
In the last 24 hours, I'm at least confident in the knowledge that I had actively prevented two people from signing up with WTU. For the next two years, I hope it is many, many more I can convince to stay away from them.
WTU will *NOT* work with customers, especially to fix their own mistakes. I deeply regret my decision to go with WTU. This is a lesson to do my homework on a company before signing up with them. The $300 cancellation fee appears very, very tempting just to go back to Reliant and be done with WTU and their gross incompetence.
Stay away from WTU. If you have one property with two or more power meters, stay FAR FAR FAR away from WTU. ”
