Most Recent Direct Energy Reviews  

I just wanted to say, we have your service and we're happy but on Neighborhood app, people are submitting complaints they think the kids your company uses door to door to get families to switch their service providers, they think they are a scam,. Asking for our BGE bills and such. Maybe your should go into tv and tell our neighbors that those kids knocking on our doors happen to work for you and that what they are doing is legit. I know because that is how we switched from Constellation to Direct Energy. Sherie Turpin from Brooklyn MD

Billing Error
I was pretty happy with the company and the plan(Free nights 9pm to 9am) I have. On my latest bill, there is an error. On all my previous bills, you will see "FREE Usage xxx kWh and FREE TDU Charges" but not on the latest November bill there is no credit for "Free TDU Charges" . So the amount is more than double because the FREE TDU Charges" were not credited. I had been trying to contact the online customer service but they just don't understand the bill at all.
