Worth signing up it's a lot cheaper

 Vista Energy has made my PPL bill on my apartment a lot cheaper. My mom had been wanting to do it for a little while to help out with my electric bill. And when I got with them the first time, it was really nice. The service and their prices are good. Its worth signing up for and if it saves money for me, it will probably save money for others too.

Hidden fees

 I use gas for my heat. So, for 5-6 months out of the year I do not use gas. However, they hit me with a supplier charge of 9.95 every month when they did not even supply me with gas services. They make it very easy to switch to them with a low rate but they get you elsewhere. Customer service was horrible. They were like robots. You ask to speak to a manager and they state, "let me see if I have someone" How do you not know? Because you are transferred into a queue. But I guess at this point they were not worried about who I needed to talk to because they got 50.00 from me for supplying me with nothing. The right thing to have done was to at least meet half way and provide a good customer service solution.

Immediate rate increases after first month

 I can't recommend strongly enough against this company. Their pitch is a 25% annual rebate on your average monthly bill - that's really a 2% annual rebate, about the same as the reward points on a credit card. They also say it is a variable rate and you can cancel anytime without penalty. Both of those are true. The catch is that the initial rate they quote is slightly below the rate to compare. Then the next month they immediately jack up the rate to close to double and in some cases more than double the rate to compare. On the last bill at two of our facilities, the price to compare was $0.067/KWH; the rate AP&G charged was $0.150722/KWH - 2.26 times the rate to compare. We have over a dozen facilities that we switched to AP&G, which are serviced by several different electric distribution companies, and this happened to all of them. The problem is that you can't change back to your previous generation supplier fast enough. By the time you look at the bill and realize what they did to the rate, you owe that rate for those 30 days and you likely do not have enough time to switch suppliers before the next meter reading, so you will owe their rates for the current 30 days. And since some (but not all) electric companies only switch suppliers on meter reading days so they don't have to do a special reading mid-month, you will likely owe AP&G's exorbitant rates for 30 more days. That was our experience. I have no doubt that AP&G's strategy is to make as much as they can in a 90 day period and hope that people aren't paying close attention and they can continue to get away with it for longer. In the era of deregulation - LET THE BUYER BEWARE!

Ripped off in PA

 We had Titan call us that our contract was expiring, and that we could find someone else to sign up with. we didn't do anything to find another supplier - we were ok with Titan Gas and Power since they were already a decent price. Now we've received our recent bill from Penelec/Titan and our bill has doubled (regarding Titan's portion) from Jan 2018 to February 2018. So, after reading some reviews on this website, we find out that if we would have signed a CONTRACT with Titan, we would have stayed at the previous rate. We stayed with them, thinking everything was fine, but then find out the rate doubled.......Funny how they don't and won't explain that to their customers. If they would have told us these details, we would have signed a contract with them. If this is how they justify to get you to sign, why don't they tell you this in the first place. When a full time working family has to find out these details "the hard way", it's just not fair.

Inappropriate penalty

 Our contract expired on 7 Dec 17(rate was $.0828 per kwh) but our meter reading did not occur until 15 Dec 17. We did not renew our contract with OASIS as we were able to find a better rate elsewhere. We were charged $.159 per kwh for 8 days of electricity usage; in addition to paying a monthly charge. We cannot control when the meter is read but OASIS was quick to penalize us with a high rate for 8 days over our contract. Shame on you OASIS for this inappropriate action and ridiculous rate. Our electric bill from OASIS is $100.99. Breakdown as follows: 21 days(655.2 kwh)@$.0828=$54.25; 8 days(280.80kwh)@$.159=$44.65 plus a monthly charge of $2.09 for 8 days. We paid almost as much for 8 days of service as we did for 21. Please keep in mind the portion of our bill due PPL. Don't give this company the opportunity to rip you off. Run - don't walk away from OASIS!!!!!! 
Oasis Energy responds January 3rd, 2018:
We are sorry to hear that you didn't renew with Oasis and you were charged a variable rate. We'd like to review your account to see if there was any way this negative experience could have been avoided. Can you please email us at officeofthepresident@oasisenergy.com? Thank you.

TriEagle is a vile company.

 Beware seniors and everyone else! With no notice whatsoever my rate went from .68798 to .119000 in September 2018. I was shocked! Surely not an ethical way to conduct business. With so many ways to communicate with customers, this company made no effort at all. Being on a fixed income this was a painful expense! I definitely do not recommend doing business with TriEagle!

Worst customer service!!

 This company can't seem to get it together. I had 3 accounts with multiple meters, this took them months to try and figure out why not all 4 meters were billed at the contracted rate. They blamed it on the meter reading date, then tried saying it was because I have a commercial account (not true). There were supervisors who did not bother to return my MULTIPLE phone calls. I suggest you stay away from this company. Many service persons barely speak English making this whole saga even worse. Worst part is, their error has cost me thousands because of a higher rate from my former company.

This is a scam.

 Some really unprofessional looking guy came to our door and was really pushy while asking about our electric bill. My boyfriend is the one in charge of handling it so he was the one talking to the guy. The guy had some city accent I had difficulty understanding but it sounded as if he was telling my boyfriend something to the effect of our electric supplier was changing something and my boyfriend needed to sign something and make a call.

This whole ordeal was screaming, "SCAM," to me and I outright asked if it was a scam after reading reviews for APG&E online. The guy insisted it wasn't, which is a load of crap. Unfortunately my boyfriend allowed the guy to leave with the paper he signed so now we're just trying to fix things. One of the papers the guy left said we had 3 business days to cancel the transaction. My boyfriend called the number immediately after the guy left to cancel it once I was able to convince him it was indeed a scam. So hopefully that will help resolve this quickly.

A word to the wise...don't sign anything for pretty much anyone who randomly comes to your door unless it's the mail person asking you to sign for a package.

Beware!

 all my dealings with this company have been nothing but dishonest. a man showed up at my door on a fri evening after dark wearing a peco hat and jacket. he said he was with peco and that peco was changing their energy supplier to sfe. he said i needed to sign a form to continue receiving services. he then stated that for some reason my paperwork was missing my account no. and he asked for an old bill so he could complete the form. he made a telephone call on his phone and then asked me to read from a card that said sfe is an energy provider. last he said peco would plant a tree to thank me for my time. my mistake for not reading the form. it was dark, i was tired, and i believed the guy was from peco. turns out he completely misrepresented who he was with and why he had come. unbeknownst to me, i had signed a 3 yr contract to switch my gas and electric to sfe. i called their customer support and was told by 2 reps that the service had not yet been switched and that all cancellation fees would be waived. that was not the case. i received a bill from sfe for $90 for cancellation of the electric portion and so another call to customer support. this time i was told i would also receive a $90 bill for the gas cancellation and i would be taken to collections if i did not pay. i called yet again and was told by another rep that management had tried to call me and that they were unable to reach me--i have no missed calls on my phone. last, i submitted a negative review on sfe's site and they did not post the review. management is now to call tomorrow. no legitimate company with any integrity would operate like this. and after googling sfe, i can see that their door to door sales force has been preying on the inexperienced, elderly, etc for yrs. amazingly, sfe allows the misrepresentation to continue and then charges exorbitant cancellation fees when the scam is figured out.
