We currently recommend electricity plans from Pulse Power and Spark Energy

Worst company ever

(1.4 / 5)

  I can never get anyone on the phone.
On hold for at least 20 min at a time and when they do answer,they hang up!
My powers been off and could get any help even though the bill was paid!
And now I cant even get any one on the phone to transfer or stop service due to myself moving !

Terrible company, steals your money even after cancelling

(1 / 5)

  Maybe power companies are doing bad, but this one was terrible. Theres no way to cancel from their website and emails take days for them to reply to. If youre a busy person that just wants a good reliable company, go elsewhere. These guys will nickel and dime you and will conveniently forget that you already cancelled while continually charging you until you cancel your card and do a chargeback.

Terrible customer service

(1 / 5)

  Set up initial auto pay (required) and they said bank rejected it, giving no other information, charging fee after fee. Bank says account number is correct. The return check fees don't even show on the bills so there is no way to pay online. And every-time I call to ask? $4.95 additional fee according to terms of service. Its a never ending cycle and the customer service agents have no information or authority. They won't even let me talk to the billing department!! "They don't take calls" I wonder if they take letters from attorneys? What a scam.

The Charge Large Fees Besides Usage

(1 / 5)

  Signed up because they were offering $.099 per 2000kwh. Well they charged me $.099 for 1484 kwh I used, plus $38 for using at least 1 kwh, plus $61 for using more than 1000, plus taxes for a total of more than $250. This is the worst charging method I have ever experienced with any electric company. I will pay my cancellation fee of about $240 and bid this poor excuse of a company good bye!

WORST COMPANY OF ALL TIME

(1 / 5)

  Wish I could give 0 stars. Not just the worst energy company of all time - the worst company in general of all time.

We set up auto draft when we signed up with this company and every month we get a notice saying the bill is not paid. We call and pay over the phone with the exact same credit card and have them update their system and yet the same thing happens every month (and has been for 10 months now).

We have no way to log into our account online and they will not help us reset our password.

Today we came home to our electricity turned off, we called and the system said we owed $0.00 by tomorrow. They claimed to have sent the turn off power notice before we paid our bill and then sent a retraction notice right after but would not provide us with any evidence or confirmation. The customer service representative was very rude, unhelpful, and had no knowledge on how to help us. They say our power "might" turn back on within 2-3 hours.

We will be contacting a lawyer to see about getting out of our contract with this awful company.

SAVE YOURSELF FROM THE WORST MISTAKE OF YOUR LIFE - CHOOSE A DIFFERENT ENERGY COMPANY.

Beware

(1 / 5)

  This is the worst company ever. They are charging me for TWO different units at the same time. Every time you call, you are on hold for at least 10 minutes and then they typically hang up. When you do speak with someone, they only speak Spanish, or very poor English and are unable to help. I have emailed multiple times, I only receive automated replies. They charged me $295 for the wrong account, still haven't received a refund, and I'm still being charged for two accounts. Choose ANY other company.

DONT GO OVER 1000KW

(1 / 5)

  Be sure you read the fine print on this. If you go over the 1000kw they will charge you $87.00 than on top of that they we charge you per KW for me it 11.9 for every kw over that. I have a very small house and the $300.00 bill I received was a shock, I have owned this home for 4 years and the most I ever paid was 187.00 Due to Christmas lights. I have ran a pool pump and even with that never saw a $300.00 bill. Please read all the fine print, they will trap you. Don't bother calling you cannot reach anyone in CS. I am now in the process of looking for another company.

Lies

(1.8 / 5)

  Customer rep on the phone told me directly that they had smart meter texas access (way to monitor electricity usage), complete lie. They never registered with them, so the customer is not able to use. He also told me that at the end of my contract I was able to get the exact same plan again, that is was not only for new customers. Also a complete lie, the only plans they provided with me afterwards were for HUGE rate increases. Website functionality is pretty lousy, often gives me errors and the usage section of the website is very inaccurate - have to go to each individual bill to see the actual usage. Very lousy company, much much better ones available.
