    Seamless transition to new energy supplier
    When our old supplemental provider substantially increased rates (our primary provider is the outstanding community solar organization Neighborhood Sun), we shopped for renewable energy providers and found Green Mountain. Very pleased with ease of shopping on BGE site and transition to Green Mountain. ERG from Owings Mills MD

    switch from verde to green mountain, major price reduction , from Butler PA

    Control your monthly bill!
    I find GME a pleasure to do business with. My rates are reasonable. *** I love that I get a weekly summary of my usage, it gives me a heads up on what my bill will be, and I always take the opportunity to adjust the amount of energy I consume. I always try to beat the prior weeks consumption. #NEVER ANY SURPRISES!!! Laura, Texas from Temple TX

    Switch to Green Energy

    Switched to Green energy to get a favorable rate and it is now in place. My only complaint is it took approx 2-3 months for the change to take place. Not sure whose fault this is but when I've switched before the tranistion happened faster.

    Cancellation fee

    Great Mntn Energy charged a fee for early cancellation when my electricity was never cancelled. Spoke to 3 supervisors all giving different information and my acct was drafted 352.86, leaving me with no money. I was advised a refund was processed, that was a lie. I was told the investigation would be completed before the due date, if not just pay normal balance due. Also told no refund until the investigation is complete. I was told lies, givin false information and still no refund processed. I'm very unhappy with the service received by this company. How can you charge for something you did not do, something which never happened. Also told this happens all the time. Their processes do NOT work!!
