Bunch of SCAMMERS
“ DO NOT ever pick NRG. This is a company run by full of scammers. I'm searching for that sales guy who gave ma a 5 dollar gift card and made me pay several hundred bucks unwantedly. This is beyond scam. They spike up the rate so high that your bill comes as a heart attack. NEVER AGAIN. ”

Cheaters...totally avoid them
“ Pathetic customer service...they cheat you...every billing cycle the rates go up and when you call to fix it they say it would take 1 to 2 billing cycle to get the rate adjusted and if you want to cancel it for that also they say will take 1 to 2 billing cycles...so its a big trap...totally avoid these cheaters... ”

DO NOT SIGN UP!
“ I was talked into this at Walmart. First she claimed my current rate was .07 but it was not when I checked. Then I started checking the reviews & contract. They can increase your rate as much as 30% after 3 months. I have since been trying to get this service rescinded/cancelled and still have not received confirmation. DO NOT SIGN UP WITH NRG HOME! ”

Non-existent customer support and huge rate hikes.
“ I got burned by NRG a year ago after their huge rate increases month-after-month once my first promo ended. I decided to try again to get the Southwest miles promo offer, knowing I need to cancel or renegotiate rates 1 month before my promo ends. The problem is, you can't get through to customer service. Hold times go over 30 minutes, and their emails go unanswered for a week and when they finally reply, they say they can't discuss by email so I have to call again. Tried calling again but couldn't get through - endless hold times. I then sent an email to cancel and it took 2 more weeks for them to process and say okay, that'll take 1-2 months. I was being super pro-active but now I'm going to be stuck with them for up to 2 extra months at what will likely be insanely high, undisclosed rates. I even wanted to stay as their customer if they could lock me in to a good rate, but nobody would pick up the phone to talk!!! If I were CEO of this company, I'd be absolutely furious of how their operations are run. ”

False Advertising from Salespeople - THEY LIE, PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED!
“ NRG salespeople are liars, not once, but twice I was told that they their electric rates would be lower than Duke Energy. I was not told by either salesperson that it was only for the first 3 months. After 3 months the rate went from 5.8 cents per kWh to 7.95 cents per kWh to 9.7 cents per kWh the next month and for the next 7 months it stayed at 11.9 cents kWh. Meanwhile Duke energy rates averaged 5.7 cents per for the whole year. I even saw the salesperson again in the same store when he came up to me to try to sell me again and I told him my electric bill had skyrocketed and he told me again that the rates should be lower than Duke Energy and that I should call and complain. He even wrote down the number. I called them today and am awaiting a call back from the manager. I cancelled my service last month and they said it will take 2 months to cancel my service, which means I will be billed for the next 2 months at the OUTRAGEOUS rate of 11.9 cents per kWh, while Duke Energy rate is 5.62 cents per kWh. I'm sure I am not the only person this has happened to. If anyone knows of a class action suit against them, please share. ”

Got got by this company
“ After the promotional price my rate increased, but slowly. In November my bill went from $50 a month to $125. December $160. I'm afraid to see January's bill. I switched back to AEP. Never again. If I could they will get a 0 rating. Rip off!!!!! ”

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! ”

Met a lying NRG sales in shopping mall and was told to provide a bit personal info for their survey for gift card. 1 hr later, I got a confirmation email stating I already switched to NRG services. Called NRG customer services and was told they cannot cancel this contract even though it has no my consnet. I told them on their statement, it says I can also cancel this contract within 7 days with no charge, but they still refused to cancel it. Called DP&L to solve this scam. ”

Price will double after promotion
“ I, like others, fell victim to their promotion scam. I signed up at Menards, I knew that there would be a jump in price after the promotion period. But I didn't realize it would more than double. Defiantly stay away from these guys. ”
