     Great energy company! Outstanding customer service! My assistant thought they had setup auto pay for Hudson energy but did not. So i recieved a call after bill had not been paid in a few months. The Hudson customer service rep i spoke with about the matter couldnt have been more professional and understanding, Due to Covid i no longer have the need for there services but will most definitely use them in the future!

    Renewing with Star Tex

     My contract with Star Tex was about to expire, so I spent much time researching various plans and rates offered by providers in our area. I wanted to see if I could secure a better rate with a company that also scored well on customer satisfaction. After an exhausting search, I called Star Tex to clarify information on their website; all my questions were answered thoroughly in a patient and easy-to-understand manner by customer service agent Ashley. Based on past personal experience, as well as current information, I have chosen to renew with Star Tex. 
    Constellation responds July 25th, 2013:
    StarTex Power appreciates the opportunity to respond to this posting, as our customers are our #1 Priority. We are pleased to know we were able to provide you with the answers you requested and that you allowed StarTex Power to continue as your Retail Electric Provider.

    for the haters

     I have been a customer of Ambit energy for over a year now. Reading all of these reviews my mind is blown. 99% of you seem to have forgotten to pay one of your most important bills of the month and blame it on the company. Blame your mistake on yourself. This is a quality company. I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Startex came through

     After seeing that "most" companies are charging 9.95 fee for usage less then 1000kwh including Startex I found 4 other plans that did not and planned on changing. When I called in to changed I told them they would have to leave me with the current usage fee of 4.99 for usage lessfor then 499Kwh to stay with them and they said yes! I am sure every apartment owner is upset with these new fees but show around and call Startex before you switch and politely ask. Maybe they do want to keep their Apt customers after all.

    Great choice of energy

     I don't understand how this company is rated a "1.3." I had a misunderstanding regarding my bill but it was clarified and I was credited on my account.
