“ Told me they except solar. Had solar installed. For 6 months I had the solar active, but not using it. Started using the service, thinking I had built up a lot of energy. Received a bill. Called and was told they don't except solar. Lost all the energy. ”
“ I do not recommend getting new services with them. I have had them for almost a year & the customer service is horrible. I have never been late on a payment and they decide to take charge my account twice for a $234 bill!! Not once was there and consideration that I had other bills due. I was told 24-48 hours for a refund. The. After 48 hours I was told 7-10 days. Im waiting for my contract to end so I can cancel them all the way out. They are very in professional! ”
“ I just want to warn everybody I know to stay away from Stream Energy! My parents have been loyal customers for years now. But since my Dad (88 yrs) got cancer and had to move in with my sister, they have been trying to charge them a $250 early termination fee. Each time we have contacted them to get the fee dropped, they have given us a different hoop to jump through saying the previous one wasn't good enough. Nobody we talked to in Customer Support speaks English as their first language and some of them you can't understand half of what they're saying and they can't understand you. I have spent several days worth of time working on this and that doesn't count the time my mother spent before me. We were both left on hold multiple times for over an hour and finally hung up. I regret recommending Stream to her. As soon as my contract expires, I WILL be switching to another provider. ”
“ I used Stream in an apartment and disconnected services in 2012. I found a new collections account on my credit report, called stream and was told "it is from 3-20-2012, 7.5 years ago, I do see where you called to disconnect and ask for final bill. We didn't update your forwarding address and the bill was mailed to your apartment that was disconnected from services." One single bill was mailed, to an invalid address, and no other communication until today, 8-7-2019. ”
“ Very expensive and they basically screw you. I was away for a whole month from my home. Turned off all the circuit breakers (except for the kitchen) and disconnected all my outlets and somehow my bill was 131!!!!! PLEASE DO NOT GET STREAM ENERGY THERE ARE OTHER COMPANIES THAT WONT SCREW YOU LIKE THIS COMPANY. ”
Ive had Stream Energy since 2016 and I dont have any complaints with the price or having outages itself. Its mainly the customer service that drives me insane. The wait times are long no matter what time you call, and when you finally do get a rep 9 times out of 10 theyre rude and dont know what theyre talking about. Every time I call I usually get transferred 2-3 times because lack of knowledge unless Im only strictly calling about my bill.
“ Every month when I go to pay my bill there is always an issue. It becomes a 30-40 minute ordeal with lots of frustrations. Either their website isn't working properly, it gets hung up on loading after the confirmation page or I can't log in. After their recent "changes" to the customer support line, I have yet to find a way to speak to an agent. You get stuck in a loop of the automated system. Do not use this company. I am waiting for my contract to end, then I am moving on. ”
“ I have been loyal stream customer since 2012, but recent changes to stream customer service & phone changes caused me to leave. Stream recently moved call center overseas and cannot communicate with service center reps, phone program is even worse. Cannot push zero to reach operator, on hold for full hour & reps still could not assist me or resolve issues. Unacceptable!!!! ”
“ I have been with Stream Energy for two years. When I moved, I renewed by service with them (not realizing my various options). When my first bill cam in and I had sticker shock - I began to question the plan I was sold. Upon further investigation, I was appalled at the rate with Stream Energy. When I called to try to renegotiate I was told there was nothing they could do - I was LOCKED in! I am the most upset because they had a record of my annual usage and sold me on a package that was far more than I ever used or needed. Yes this is my responsibility - but my recommendation is to RUN RUN RUN FROM STREAM ENERGY!!!!! There are a lot cheaper, more affordable options out there. ”
“ DO NOT use Stream Energy. They will not fulfill their agreement. They just want customers to sign up & the customer service is HORRIBLE!!! You'll be on hold for almost an hour each time you contact them but your questions/issues never get answered or resolved. They will promise you the moon to sign you up but in the end they'll not follow through with what they promised. As for their rates...Get prepared, it will cost you more than the others. ”
I have been a stream customer for several years. We own a business as well as use stream at our residence. I recommended
stream to my elderly mother. I have been late on making a payment in the past and was never charged a reconnection or a disconnection fee. This is what Stream has charged my elderly mother even though she was in the hospital and that caused her to pay late. She has been a stream customer for 4 years and has never missed a payment before. Let me stress that she was late on a 42.80 statement but got it paid up before the next Month was due. We will be canceling our account with Stream as soon as possible. Stream will lose 2 residential accounts as well as our business Steel & Alloy Specialties. One customer service rep said he could credit 50.00 then when i asked to speak to a supervisor he said that offer would be taken off the table. ”
“ I have been with stream energy for over 10 years stream energy still have good low plans , good prices and good customer service .etc.,, ”
“ I can't get a live agent or pay my bill. They changed their voice options format. Push a number no longer exists. Push 1 for billing and then everything is voice. I lose my voice twice a month due to my disability. I'm not computer literate and Done trust internet payments. I now need to find another energy provider because of this discrimination against the disabled. That's a good LEGAL reason why to break contract without fees. ”
“ We have been with Stream Energy for 3 years now we love the price that we get they have great customer service they have been a pleasure to be with and we will continue to be with Stream Energy thank you for all y'all do ”
“ I've been with stream for almost 4 years now. At first the prices were great around $100-120. Since 2018 my bill has been getting higher. Sometimes the bill can reach up to almost $400!!!!! I called and asked them why my Bills are so high and they just tell me I must be using something that causes it to go up. That is bullcrap!!! I always turn everything off before I go to bed and there is no damn reason my bill should be up that high. They have disconnected my electricity now without notice. I paid some of it as it's so high and I dont have enough money to pay the whole thing every time payment is due. I called customer service and they said they disconnected it because we havent paid since November of last year. How does that even make any sense? And at the last second she said oh never mind it just came up on the screen. Your power should be on within 24 hours to 2 days!!!!! What? It's hot and I have animals I am not gonna be with them much longer because they are terrible and disgusting. The customer service is a joke. I am not pleased and I dont care if I have to pay a disconnection fee I want out of this! Sick and tired of their crap!!!!!!!!!! ”
“ Spent an hour on hold for a resolution they were to give me in 48 hours. They need 3 more days. Really... to listen to my phone call with rep when he put in move out date wrong. They are charging me for another apartments usage due to their error. Not only am I paying for other apartment. I have to pay usage for the apartment they turned off to the apt management at a higher rate due to this error. I have been a loyal customer for 5 years. It is time for my renewal. Time to leave. As for resolving my case they cannot do it in the specified time they gave me. They provided no update to this not ready to be resolved, to keep me from being on hold for no news! ”
If I could give them 0 stars I absolutely would!!! These people are scammers! Do not use them!!!!!!! They made a miskey with my apartment number and when the bill never got paid they rolled it over to my actual bill for my for the balance for an apartment that I did not live in!!! When I called to find out why my bill for an APARTMENT was $367 (I work 40 hours a week and its one person in this apartment) they informed me of this!I was signed up for the power budget plan, which in itself is a scam, on my previous plans with other providers I never used over 700 kWh and with them (on the 1000 kWh plan) I was consistently over with absolutely NO change in my daily habits! Its a scam to get more money from you in the end!! Moving forward, They refused to take off the bill for the other apartment without me having to file fraud when it was clearly a miskey on their part. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! Customer service wasnt at all helpful and had no interest in helping rectify this situation.
Guys save yourself some money and frustration and just NO! ”
We made the mistake of renting one of our rental properties to a relative. At first she paid her rent faithfully. But, as time passed she quit paying her rent. We had to evict her from the house. We had to get a 'Writ of Possession' and have the Constable move the tenant out.
Needless to say we have lost a great deal of money on this.
I called to have the electric turned on on the house so we could make repairs. (The house is so bad we have to gut it). Stream energy told me there is a switch hold on the property. I told them I would send them my court papers showing us as landlord evicting her as tenant. Which I did. And I gave them my account number with them, showing I have good payment history. I further told them to pull my credit report which shows I pay my bills. My credit score is 8.3.
They said unless I pay the $300.+ bill they will not turn it on. I have spent a week working on this and getting nowhere. So today they told me that in the past I had paid two of her bills so that made me legally responsible for her bills. I did not ever really pay her bill. She did give me cash and asked me to pay her bill over the phone once or twice so it would not be turned off. How does this make me legally responsible for her bill?
I really need to get the electric turned on at this rental property. But I feel like it is a slap in the face to expect me to pay her bill after she has cost us thousands of dollars. I also do not see how I could be held legally responsible for another persons bill. ”
“ I paid my bill then 5 days later (the due date) they took my payment again. They said I signed up for auto pay....which I didnt. Im confused how you take payment in a zero balance. I spoke with 3 people in customer service and they stumble over their words trying to cover up everyones lies. They wanted nothing to do with helping me. I still dont have the money refunded. They didnt process my refund until 6 days after I called and then I was told it will take another 3-5 days to show in my account. They dont care about their customers. I should have never left my last electric company. ”
“ Their customer service is terrible. They do not care about the customers and they would not waive any fees or try to fix the issue even if its the first time happening and specially if its something that went wrong with their billing portal. If something goes wrong when paying your bill, they wont fix it, so think twice before getting their services. That is why will be cancelling my account with them. ”
