Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We've been with this energy company for a year now and really enjoy our free weekends! My only complaint is when you have to change the date just a few days later when pay day just doesn't match up, you get charged 5% of your next bill on your next bill for it......but that is the only issue we have had with this company! Just a great company over all!(:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free weekend plan is awesome! Being able to get the free weekend of electricity use is a very good way to save on your bill! Weekends are when I'm home the most, since I work during the week. I am able to do everything I need to do around the house on the weekend and have peace of mind that it's not costing a fortune for my electricity. Thank You Direct Energy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very affordable We just moved to a very hot and humid town in Texas. We have very old windows and were worried about our first electricity bill with it being July. It surprised us when we got our first bill that it was less than our brand new house with energy efficient windows! Free weekends are a great benefit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Transfer Issue This company is the worst at transferring the lights. I have had the worst customer service for the last 2 weeks I have had to call numerous times and they still cannot get it right. I am so tired of this issue that that I cancel the service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced and unimpressed Overpriced and hidden fees, I would cancel if it was not for the hefty cancellation fee. They have a delivery charge which was not advertised until after signing. Makes it extremely difficult to get in contact with customer service.
