Great rates and customer service
I have been with Direct Energy in the past and left thinking I could get a better rate. The customer service is excellent when you have any billing issues they treat you with respect. I went back to them this year and put their service on 2 houses. You will be pleased to know Direct has great people working for them. A from Lake Dallas TX

Moving on from Direct Energy

I've been a Direct energy customer for several years. Upon renewal for the contract, I received a letter for my gas & one for electric usage. There is no place in the letter & or contract that says "To call Us to renew". I want cancelling so I thought, I should be ok where I am, and I will be in my plan. Well no, I was wrong. I'm on second bill that is sky high because of the new rates... Why isn't my supplier going to Bat for me? They are just squeezing me for more money. I did get $100 in a prepaid VISA to compensate for last months charges, but nothing for the same high rate again this month. Bastards. Can't adjust their billing statements? What a crock of crap. Buyer beware....
