Deposit Reviews


Deposit Issues and Complaints (130 reviews)

Deposits for electricity in Pennsylvania can be a hassle and usually range from $100 to $500. Some companies handle them well with lower deposit amounts or lower credit thresholds while others turn you upside down and shake the lunch money out of your pocket. If deposits are causing you issues, you can read deposit related reviews from other customers before you sign up for an energy company.



Patient and great customer service

(5 / 5)

  I had switched over light companies and got approved with zero dollars down for a deposit with ambit. Ms. Shekayla was so knowledgeable of everything and helpful. We need more customer service reps/consultants/agents like her thanks ambit for providing me with great service for an affordable price

The best light companies in Houston will provide a number of accomodations for deposits, if you fall into certain categories. We have written a guide to switching electric companies to help people understand their options.

No problems for 13 years...knock on wood.

(5 / 5)

  I've had Direct Energy at my apartment for nearly 13 years and have had no problems whatsoever with them. I had a contract with them when they were Houston-based, but when a Canadian firm bought them out, they refunded my $250.00 deposit with credits during the summer of 2012 and have been month to month since. My rates have been ok, around 11 cents/kwh, maybe 14 during the summer add Centerpoint carrying charges and taxes and it comes to around 21 cents/kwh on a monthly basis. They try to get me to go for "free nights" but there's no such thing as free electricity. All in all, Direct Energy is one of the best deals out there, with very little interruptions and great service.
