Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is energy done right! We are relatively new Direct Energy customers, and I have to tell you that we absolutely could not be more pleased. This is by far the best utility company we've ever been with. I really mean that! We chose the Free Power Weekends 12 plan, which has been not only super convenient, but also efficient and affordable. Beyond affordable, actually. We no longer cringe when we receive our electric bill. The website has so many resources for account management, etc. And in our experience the customer service is helpful. They do genuinely care about customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great plan I am really enjoying the free electricity on the weekend. I try to reserve laundry, dishes, and vacuuming for the weekends. I've had a good experience thus far! I do wish a free evenings option was available. As a nurse, I work a lot of weekends and the free electricity evenings would be more beneficial for my rotating work schedule. This is why I also looked into TXU, because they do offer free evenings but I found the kw/hr was a higher charge. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most inexpensive, also honest I've had this for 4 months. When I called about signing up, they spent an hour with me as I asked about every charge. They actually include oncor in their kw charge. I have we have 5 kids here and window units, and my bill is still low
