Our Take On Summer Energy
Summer Energy offers variable and fixed rate plans up to 12 months. Summer Energy applies base charges to all of its plans. Summer Energy is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau, and has been given a rating of B-. This, coupled with poor consumer reviews regarding hidden fees and poor customer service, and a lack of long-term fixed rate contracts, lead us to reccomend other suppliers above Summer Energy. Compare reviews with other suppliers.
|Plan type||Contract Length||Details||Early termination fee||Our Thoughts|
|Standard fixed rate plans||3, 6, 9, and 12 months||
||$100 - $200||It's unfortunate that Summer Energy doesn't offer longer term contracts than 12 months.|
|Variable rate plan||No fixed length||
Savings on Fixed Rate Plans
Some customers report that they appreciate savings on fixed rate electricity plans from Summer Energy. Fixed rate plans can often be a good deal if you are able to lock in a good rate at the right time of year.
Electricity customers should opt for fixed rate contracts of 24 or 36 months. Electricity prices per kilowatt-hour fluctuate throughout the year, and you may actually lose money by not being able to take advantage of prices when they are low. However, because electricity prices tend to increase over time, locking in fixed rates for longer periods may prove advantageous and deliver savings.
Variable rate prices are determined solely at the discretion of the provider.
Green Energy Plans
Summer Energy does not offer 100% renewable plans.
Customer Service Ratings
YEP has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on the small number of complaints that have been made against it relative to its size. Customer reviews are mixed, with some customers satisfied with their service and energy savings, and other customers dissatisfied with various fees and customer service.
Losses On Variable Rate Plans
Some customers report dissapointment with their variable rate plans, which may end up being more expensive than a fixed rate plan. We do not recommend variable rate plans, because these are not regulated by your state government, and may end being more costly than a fixed rate.
Cancellation fees on Summer Energy's contracts are expensive, especially given their relatively short duration.
Summer Energy is based in Texas, and serves texas consumers.
