    The Best Energy Provider Here

     I had renewed with Direct some months before but I guess it was too early for a renewal but one phone call and it was done immediately by a very knowledgeable Customer Service Rep. Direct has been my choice for some time now and I don't plan to change any time soon. 
    Direct Energy responds January 30th, 2018:
    We are so glad to hear this feedback, Randy. Thanks for sharing your experience. Have a great evening. - Cole
