Do not switch your energy supplier to Direct Energy. The door to door sales rep with the manager will mislead you to screwing you over so they can collect commission on sale.
Your old energy company will charge you with breaking their contract and you will be left with a bill of $200 or more for breaking their contract. Direct Energy with lie to you and tell you that won't happen. Guess again. Direct Energy will leave you with the bill.
DO NOT SWITCH TO DIRECT ENERGY.
When I tried to resolve this with Direct Energy, they said that their company will not pay cancellation fee for anyone. Meaning, you're on your own.
