How Good are Product Reviews for Energy Providers?.
I was looking at changing my Electricity Provider the other day, after a visit from one of the Queensland energy sales representatives.
After the discussions I decided to look up the reviews for this new company, and you must read to the very end to see the real results.
The results that I read on the Product Review website, were very scary at first.
This new company (well, new to me) had only 138 excellent reviews (21%) out of 656 in total, with 451 being terrible (69%).
I thought that maybe I had made a mistake, but at least I had a 10 day cooling off period.
I then decided to see just how much better my last two providers were. They are major Energy providers in Australia.
And WOW, was I surprised..
- only 44 excellent reviews (4%) out of 1,218 in total, with 1,042 being terrible (86%).
- only 41 excellent reviews (4%) out of 1,060 in total, with 910 being terrible (86%).
This new one wasn’t quite as bad as I first thought, and it seems they may all get a bad rating. However, I personally have had no bad issues with either of the other two before.
It seems it may as well come down to pure price after all.
I will see if the promise of $60 per quarter savings comes true. If it does, then that saving will cover my cars annual service cost.
