Pricing not clearly displayed

Two weeks or so after enrolling in your program, I received an e-mail telling me I owed 139 on my account. At first I thought this to be a scam until I called customer service and was told the $139 was a sign-up fee which, the representative told me, was listed on the company website. Had I seen this listing, I wouldn't have chosen your company since the fee added to the per kw/h would have exceeded most, if not all of the other power providers cost in my area. The representative was kind enough to rescind the contract, and I apologize for not seeing the added fee in the sign-up. Thanks for your help

Do not switch to Public Power!

Public Power offers very competitive rates to lure in customers for a short period of time. I am usually very vigilant when I try a new energy supplier. Due to personal circumstances, I was not able to watch my bills closely, and as soon as the fixed rate was up, they sent a letter that they putting me on a new fixed rate and gave me a couple of days to rescind the new rate agreement. As stated, I was not in the capacity of checking if the new rate was fair. So they locked me in to a new high rate (with a penalty to cancel mid term). I asked to cancel, but they refused to waive the cancellation fee.
It turns out that in just 4 months they over charged me more the $35 over the utility company.

They are totally unethical. Such an energy company should be penalized and discredited.
