Consumers complaints and reviews
“Having only been supplied by Spark Energy for a period of one month (July 2008), I am still awaiting a final bill and the refund of any overpayment. They have ignored all email correspondence and the last communication from them was after I posted a registered letter back in November.” IamFurious
“… Your company first called me to ask me to switch to your company form PGE as you can offer 20% discount fee on Gas. The truth is not only you did NOT offer 20% discount, but you wrongfully charge around 5 monthly fee to me. Your deceptive business conduct is you ask client to switch to your company and never told client there is a monthly customer service fee and never get client agree on that.” Jessica

Tips on avoiding Natural Gas and Electricity Scams
- Don’t sign up for any offer on the spot. You may be charged a hefty termination fee if you later want out.
- Don’t give out your utility account number to any sales representative at your door or over the phone.
- Don’t sign up for a new gas and electricity supplier until you compare the prices and terms of service with other companies, including your utility.
- If you’re not interested in switching your gas and electricity suppliers, ask your gas and electricity provider to put a block on your account, which will prohibit any unauthorized changes to your service.
- If you don’t want unregulated gas and electricity providers to bother you with a sales pitch, get on your utility’s do-not-market list.
