Never trust the electricity cost estimate tools they provide on their website. The initial estimate indicated a cost of $169 for summer and $262 for winter, but the actual bill received was $277. Upon inquiring with customer service via email, they explained that the estimate tool uses the basic plan pricing, which differs from the good night plan I had selected.

Been with contact for 2 years. Moved houses and wrongly thought we moved goodnight plan over. Terrible customer service almost $1000 in over 2 month period. Wasn’t noticed as we had a $700 credit from northpower. When noticed immediately contacted customer service who just did not want to rectify this. We are still trying to catch up with bills now and have recently moved to another provider.
Almost doesn’t seem worth it when compared with daily rate

My sister was with them and they ripped her off big-time. I'm looking for a power provider and I would never use this company.
