What Customer Service?

We are moving and I added my new address to the existing plan with Just Energy and wanted to EXTEND the power for my current house until we can sell it, but after I added my 2nd house the killed my portal access. Not that I forgot my password I mean my email is NOT IN THEIR SYSTEM!!!!!!! What stupid group of idiots do that? So when I call, I cannot get a sole to answer the damn phone. I was on hold for over an hour yesterday WAITING! Then I was prompted to have someone call me back... I got a call from the state of Washington from a Hudson Electric and when I explained my problem they were going to transfer me and I was dropped... yep they dropped my call. Someone from this POS company had better answer the flipping phone or write me back ASAP or I will process with my report to the Utilities Commission about this horrible service. BTW I rate their Customer Service as a 0 but this stupid system requires an answer.

Waiting for my refund

The sales reps of Just Energy were going door-to-door selling their services. The rep was very thoroug in explaining their service to me and told me that their service will replace PG&E that I will be paying only $16.99 a month and can use all the gas and as much as I want and my bill not increase at all. Also, I will not see from PGE annymore; all bills will be coming from Just Energy. Being on disability, I thought it was a great deal and it would help save $$$ on a monthly basis. Being on a fixed income, every penny makes a difference to people like us. Upon receiving my first bill in November from PGE, the total amount was Just Energy portion of 16.99 and PGE monthly amount. I contacted PG&E and was told that they had nothing to do with Just Energy and their services and that I will have to continue to pay PGE what they bill on a monthly basis, in addition to whatever else Just Energy bills me. I called Just Energy and besides being extremely rude and unprofessional, I was told to just ignore the portion of the Just Energy billing and continue to pay PGE. I told him that's not how it works and I have to pay the entire bill. His response was "I don't know what to tell you". Asked to speak to a supervisor, none was available. Left my name and # for a call back, nothing. Asked to cancel my account and he said he couldn't and a supervisor has to do it!!! Nothing happened! Called a few more times, no response. In March I called again and had to make threats of reporting them to FTC, BBB and my local channel and finally they cancelled my account and also for a refund for all the months I had paid them. On March 20, 2019, I received a cancellation letter from Mark Eddings, Sr. VP, Regional General Mngr. I sent them another letter on July 2, 2019 asking for my refund because what they did was so very wrong and didn't deliver what was promised and misled everyone about their service, To date have not heard a word from them. This company is a big fruad and crooked and their reps are just as crooked and unethical. After everything that I have gone through, they sent me an email "You just got 500 Perks points"! and asked for a survery and how they are doing!!!! This is the complaint sent to FTC

What do customers think about Just Energy?


That depends on who you ask. There will always be someone who feels wronged by a company, no matter how good they actually are. The average Just Energy customer review is 2.1 / 5 stars. Keep in mind, consumers will go out of their way to complain far more often than they will to give praise.

Why is my electricity rate higher than when I signed up?


The rate you see when you sign up is the average rate at that exact amount of usage in one billing cycle. Some companies try to game the system by applying bill credits between certain usage thresholds. It works great if you are within the margins, but as soon as you leave that band you no longer get that bill credit and your rate per kWh can double. The PUC only requires that companies disclose their average rates at 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Companies can get around this by giving you a $50 bill credit if you use between 1000 and 2000 kWhs per billing cycle. The only way to really know what you're getting into is to read your EFL. A 10¢ rate at all usage amounts may end up being cheaper than that 8¢ rate at 1,000 kWh!
