Pricing not clearly displayed

Two weeks or so after enrolling in your program, I received an e-mail telling me I owed 139 on my account. At first I thought this to be a scam until I called customer service and was told the $139 was a sign-up fee which, the representative told me, was listed on the company website. Had I seen this listing, I wouldn't have chosen your company since the fee added to the per kw/h would have exceeded most, if not all of the other power providers cost in my area. The representative was kind enough to rescind the contract, and I apologize for not seeing the added fee in the sign-up. Thanks for your help

Bad company

After our contract expired our rate went up 2 cents to 9 cents per kwh. No big deal. But the second month our rate went to 18 cents per kwh. We called to try to resolve it but they werent willing to refund the difference nor were they willing to offer a contract comparable with the regular power company. Absolutely no reason to deal with this company. Bad service, high rates, dishonest practices, and nobody can seem to be able to resolve anything. I spoke with a man from the office of the president for public power and he seemed to believe that his company had done nothing wrong. When I asked if he would do business with a company that treated him like his company treated me, he hung up the phone.
