Sales Lady

 I had one of your sales rep knock on my door and invited them in as it was very hot out and she was friendly and said she was just there to help me understand my utility bill better. She asked for my bill which I didn't mind getting since she said that is why she was here and she broke down my bill for me and showed me what all the rates are and meant, I found her very helpful. She then went on to explain to me what SFE energy offers and that I had options when it came to utility rates which I didn't know until now. I decided to sign up as it looked like it would help me and she said we would have to do a verification call to complete the enrollment and other details to confirm my account which was reassuring . Overall I found my experience with her very helpful and she was straightforward, very patient explaining everything to me and wasn't trying to push me to sign anything which I found comforting.

Rates get ridiculously high quickly

 Signed up and rep was nice, customer service is nice but if you are in a variable rate agreement you better check your rates closely. Got the rate I signed up for 2 months and then it went up 23% in month 3 and another 16% in month 4....really!!!!! I beleive this company just takes advance of people. Still with the utility providers, at least they have to justify their rates with the public utility commission!

Avoid - they will increase the price after one month

 I switched to American Power & Gas because because they had a low variable rate and no cancellation fee. When I signed up I asked if the rate would stay around the current level and was told that it would - that the rate I got was not a teaser rate. However, I only got the low rate for one month. The second month the rate was increased by 70% and the third month was almost double the first month. I switched from AP & G after receiving my second month bill, but I had to pay for part of the third month while the switch was being processed.

Will not partner with People's Gass

Stay away from this company!

 They use scam artists from India, their customers service is located in Jamaica and they are quoting price well above the utility rates.

they tripled my rate overnight with no notification

 Per the agreement, I was to receive a notice of what the rate change would be --this never happened. The rate went from 5.8/kw up to 16/kwh--nearly tripling my bill overnight- their phones were not answered and I have emailed them for resolution.

predatory practices should be reviewed and this company should be disqualified from working in PA
