I keep getting payment confirmations through my email each moth and have for several months. I keep calling and they tell me that they can not talk to me because it is not my account. But...they BOTHER me every month with these bills and confirmations. I had never heard of this company until they started emailing me. The last person I called to see how to get this off of my email told me... Read more

I am so upset. Direct Energy's online site is awful. It acts as if it isn't responding and then freezes and I logout. Doesn't appear that it took the payment and doesn't give a confirmation number. IT TAKES THE PAYMENT AND HOURS LATER SENDS AN EMAIL WITH A CONFIRMATION NUMBER. In the meantime - I made a payment by phone. I call as soon as I received two emails one for the online unconfirmed...

The sales person gave us what we thought was a good price of 6.9...he never disclosed that Aep would add their of 6.9 to the cost. This was in late November of 2014. This was very upsetting when we got our first bill. We felt that we were scammed. We are on social security..and this cost is about 20 percent of our still stings. Add comment

Their door to door sales sold an accountant for the company a 3 year contract for a lease that was up in a year. When that year was up we contacted them to find out about the length of the contract.

If you forget to renew or cancel your Direct Energy service at the end of your contract, this company will charge you the highest possible rate they can get away with. I will suggest that you just stay away from using any of their services. I was talked into, pressured, to sign up with Direct Energy by a door-to-door salesperson. I fullfilled my contract, always paid my bills on time, but did... Read more

So Direct Energy alleges my elderly, ill aunt signed up online in February of 2013 for their service. She has never paid her Duke Energy bill online and doesn't have a computer. So I'm not sure how she managed to sign up online. Oh, I know, she DIDN'T. Now my elderly, ill aunt has a $3,000 past due amount on her electric bill and NO POWER because Duke turned it off. And Direct Energy refuses to... Read more
