“ I signed up for Griddy at approximately 8:40 a.m. CST and cancelled (on phone, in person) within 15 minutes. They charged me $49 anyway and contacted my current utility company to break contract 9-10 hours later (AFTER I cancelled). So, now we are having to deal with that. They are quick to change things in their favor but not quick to stop payment. I would not trust any company that "plays" this way. ”
“ They charge you a fee of $20.00 for a letter, and $10.18 for late penalty. The payment is sent to a PO box which they conveniently don't check and then charge you unnecessary fees for disconnection. Don't sign up with them no matter how good the fees seem. ”
“ Griddy must be a scam. Save money! I don't think so. Thanks to Griddy I was charged $1005 between 8-7-19 and 8-26-19. Over 1000 $$$$ before I could stop the bleeding. It would have been close to $2000 for 1 month. Well if that's wholesale then I need to be in the electric business. I've already spent more than I did last year for 8 months, in less than one month. It's all BS!!!!!! ”
“ Signed up and had for 2 months. I averaged 29.9 per kw . my bill went from 159 a month before switching to them. 1ST no with Griddy I paid 248, then for the first 16 days in the second month they charged me 396. Then when I cancelled because of the cost the used the remaining 129 that I had prepaid for delivery fees on an account that was no longer with them.Not to mention they keep trying to re up the account that we closed. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO WITH SOMEONE ELSE. ”
Everything I ever saved using Griddy was lost in a few hours when wholesale electricity prices spiked. Griddy didn't cause the problem or profit by it, by that gives me no solace - my August cost will be near $600 and it's that low only because I drastically cut usage after I realized the problem.
Someone is gaming the electricity market. Are you reminded of what Enron did to California? ”
I have saved almost $500 so far in the 3 months I've been with Griddy. They charge a $10 monthly membership fee + the Wholesale price for power (which varies according to supply & demand) + the TDU charge that everybody pays.
There ARE price spikes, but Griddy does a Great job anticipating them & keeping you completely up2date when they happen - their App & web site shows the current and projected wholesale price, which varies from (literally) Zero (oversupply) to 3.5 (average) to brief spikes as high as $9.00 (at which point Griddy is ringing All of their alarm bells), which are typically very short lived. August has been a tough month & my average Energy Price is still 5.3 (Not INCL TDU), or 11.0 including TDU, ALL state & local taxes & fees. ”
“ Had $500 debited from my checking account from the 8th to the 17th. You pay through the nose from 1 to 6 o'clock. When you use the most. Any company is better. This is a Rip-off stay away!!! ”
“ In 2 weeks I've already been charged $352 for the month of August (record high temps). No one is home during the day and our A/C is set higer as well. It seems that Griddy would only save you money a few onths of the year. What good is a service that isn't consistent every month? I'm losing an obscene amount of money due to choosing Griddy. These are the highest electric bills I've ever paid in my life! Stay away and learn from my mistake.... ”
“ Don't take the risk, during surge prices I paid $161 for one single day. Crazy! ”
“ I have been trying to cancel my service for 2 weeks and they still keep recharging my account with my credit card. ”
