Payment missing

(4.2 / 5)

  Well I got an automated call from them saying that our power was going to be cut off on June 11 this is June 1 I never got to cut it off for nonpayment. We searched Wells Fargo and found the canceled check dated May 22 it cleared the bank on May 29 told them about it. Hopefully this will be settled because the company says they dont have a record of our payment yet it went through the bank. In the last month they changed from the Houston billing office to Dallas. This is the first issue weve had with them but its a serious issue because you know dont want my power turned off

No Frills, Low rate, Bad service

(2.8 / 5)

  The rates are great and no service/base fees, but don't expect top notch service. I've always used my bank to pay bills, you can't do that with V247. That's not something they tell you when signing up which can result in a late payment. After confirming with my bank that they tried to send payment, but V247 refused to receive it, I berated thier customer rep until they reversed the late fee. Thier employees sound like they hate life. You have to use thier website to pay bills electronically, so now they get to pay credit card transaction fees and I get cash back. Don't automate anything with them, thier employees sound like they hate life. If you're old enough to remember mailing checks for bills and don't mind monthly paying a bill, you can save a good deal of money with no base fees and a low rate.

Disappointing

(1 / 5)

  In the midst of the pandemic, I have been working for 4 weeks straight on the frontlines.
I thought I paid my bill online however it did not go through. After a call to V247, they said we had 4 days to pay before turning off our service. Then we get an email that states we have been put on a payment plan which we had not. Not mention the women was very rude and we have never been late on a bill. We were also told that the bank has to send a check and not electronically if we pay online.
So I went in and paid online again, the next day I called and they already had the payment from the day before. I actually got the same rep that my husband had the day before, still rude and argumentative.
It is just a disgrace after what everyone is going through to be treated so poorly for working and saving lives.

Auto Billing is not reliable or they allowed someone to change my account

(2.8 / 5)

  Ive been set up with Auto billing since I signed up with this company over a year ago. I took a risk with a company Ive not heard of before based on info from Texas Electricity.

Today, 12/23/19, I received a voice automated call saying my bill was over due and if not paid ASAP they would turn off my power. Im super upset since I never took my account off auto-billing so there is zero reason this should have happened. I was even able to see that they processed my previous months bill just fine. Ive not made any changes to my account, I would have zero reason to make a change. Regardless, this company was going to turn my power off and disconnect etc with lots of extra fees involved without ever sending out any emails that the bill was over due, or that a change had been made to the account taking it off auto billing or anything.

I called and was told it was changed on 11/19/19. No one with authorization to my account made this change. No email was sent confirming changes were made to the account either. So either my account was hacked, V247 was hacked, or V247 had an internal problem that took my account off of auto bill.

Then to add insult to injury, Helen in customer service wanted to charge my card for two months when only one month was in question. I could give a confirmation number and everything and yet she was going to charge for months already paid. In addition, when she tried to set my account up again for auto bill it wouldnt take. She was able to charge for the missing payment with no issues. But to set up auto billing again there was now a problem, one that caused her to have to delete the card on file and asked me to re-read all my card info to her again. I was even worried this was a way for this person to get my credit card info for non-valid reasons. It was more then worrisome.

I wish I could say that V247 was a safe company, or that they did as good of a job as TXU, but I cant. I know its only been one issue in more than a year. But that one issue could have turned off my power at CHRISTMAS!
Plus it would be a way to charge me extra late fees and disconnect fees on top of everything else.

Now, I still have to wait for Helen/V247 to call me back with what happened to my account. I just know with 100% certainty that I had no reason to make changes to this account and again, I really have to wonder why Helen wanted to charge two months bills when only one was in question.

I dont know whats going on with V247 and their billing department, but I can tell you that they do NOT have enough safety precautions in place for peoples accounts. Things such as sending emails when changes have been made to the account, or how about sending me an email that the account was late before sending me a phone call about disconnecting my account. Based on the due date of 12/15/19-V247 had many days to send me an email. I received nothing, why?

Also, if Im a paperless billing, why does V247 not send emails with the amounts of my bills? If Im not paperless billing, where are my paper bills? It cant be whatever V247 wants, they have to notify customers one way or the other and it doesnt seem thats the case.

My suggestion is to NOT trust this company. They just dont have all the wrinkles of a good business that wants to keep their customers safe completely figured out. And after being with them more then a year, I would think they should.

I will probably change back to TXU even if I have to pay a little more. At least mistakes like the above NEVER happened, EVER in more then a decade of using TXU. And to have a mistake like this happen at Christmas time too. Can you imagine having all your family over for Xmas and your power gets turned off? Or how about your kids going cold all because V247 didnt have enough security measures put in place. Helen/V247 said that the disconnect date wouldnt have been until January but that doesnt mean I believe that, nor does it mean that it gives me any comfort.

Great Experience

(5 / 5)

  I switched my service to V247 and I could not be happier. They offered me a better rate and the customer service has great! I am glad I made the move to V247. It was easy to set up. They also send me weekly updates on my energy use and what my projected bill will be for the month. I love this feature!

  Amazing company. Saving me cold hard cash every month. TXU was ripping me off. Now my rate is locked in for two years. Really making a difference to me being retired and on a fixed income.

V247 Power is the best!

(5 / 5)

  I love V247 Power. When I needed a new contract 4 months ago, they had the best deals for 12 months and 24 months for apartment dwellers like me, so I signed up for 24 months and relaxed. Their bills are simple and straight forward because all I pay for is the kwh I use that month, and required taxes. No minimums, maximums, or base fees, etc. It was easy to set up my account online, and their website is very easy to navigate to get my paperless bill and balance, and with auto-pay I don't worry about a late payment. I like getting a weekly email with a summary of my usage that week compared to the week before, and it estimates how much my usage and bill will be that month. Very handy. So I get everything I need and more, and I don't need to think about it for 2 years. Home run!

Best of all providers!

(5 / 5)

  My last energy provider played a number of games with us- resulting in bills that gobbled up our savings in just 2 months! V247 has proven COMPLETELY different, giving fair rates and making sure that I as a customer am aware of all aspects of their services.
Thank you, V247! You make me glad I switched to you every time I get my monthly statement!

Good overall alternative

(4.8 / 5)

  Every year I review my rates and shop for better alternatives. I signed with V247 Power in Aug/2019 as they were the best alternative price wise. At first, I was a little hesitant as I had never heard of V247 Power before, but a quick phone call put all my worries to rest. The rep that took my call was very efficient and friendly. She took the time to explain to me how the billing, pricing and sign in processes worked all with a friendly demeanor. Getting my service connected was easy and so far the change has been positive for me.
I recommend V247 Power if you are looking for a no nonsense provider, efficient and worry free process.
