Eligo Energy, LLC Reviews (117)
We did make the switch and for the first part of our contract it did seem that we were actually receiving a better rate. Taylor was my Eligo representative and he called me on several occasions to discuss rates. Our rate was always kept at a rate of .0394 or lower. I was completely shocked when I received the December 2020 bill because my overall bill went from $226.97 (November 2020) to $1551.83 (December 2020). I called West Penn Power, my provider and learned that Eligo raised our rate from .0381 to .152 which is a 400% increase! I immediately called my representative Taylor and heard a recording that this line is no longer available.
We then called the company directly and we were advise that our rate had been change which was allegedly told to us in a letter that was mailed to us on (2) two different occasions once in July and once in August.
We never received any such letters.
Eligo has confirm that they sent the letters to the wrong address and to this date refuse to produce a copy of the alleged letter.
This was also particularly strange because the rate was not changed until December (4) four months after the alleged letter was sent.
After many hours on the phone with many agents of Eligo they offered an unreasonable resolution. I pleaded with several representatives and eventually a supervisor, asking them to be reasonable. We were not notified of a change and our representative who called regularly was no longer available. Eligo confirmed that they sent the letters to the wrong address but still will not offer to reduce the rate to the agreed upon rate.
They would adjust (1) one billing cycle if we signed a contract for (12)twelve months with a higher rate than is available from other suppliers.
This is unacceptable and we are left with no alternatives other than to litigate.
The recordings sent to the customer, as proof of their authorization of Eligo Energy as their supplier, are from October 26, 2016.Eligo Energy has no further records of calls from the customer until 04/28/2017, when they requested to cancelThere is a possibility that the customer is mistaking Eligo Energy for another supplier.In addition to providing this data to the customer directly, and to the Revdex.com, this data was also provided to the customer's utility company, ***, on May 04, The utility company was satisfied with the evidence of the authorization.As mentioned previously, Eligo Energy does not slam customersThe customer's accounts have been canceled per their requestThe are now in dropped status with Eligo Energy.Eligo Energy considers this matter closed.Thank you for contacting Eligo Energy

Eligo Energy does not slam or fraudulently enroll customers without their consent.After investigating this matter, we believe that this enrollment was made by the complainant herself or someone in the complainant's household or by someone with full knowledge of the household's identifying information.When customers authorized the switch of their electricity supply service, they have to provide us with their account informationEligo Energy does not possess customer account information until the customer provides it for us.The customer authorized the switch for electric supply service on 10/26/2016, via third party verification ("TPV")During the TPV, the customer agreed to a month term at a rate of cent per kWh, then, a month to month market variable rate for any service periods thereafterWe have an audio recording of the authorizationsThe recording can be provided to the customer upon request, via email.During the TPV, the recording repeats "Eligo Energy" as the name of the supplier, several timesAfter providing this information, the TPV asks the customer to "please say yes to confirm"We do not believe the call misrepresents the identity of Eligo Energy or the supplier authorization process.The customer's accounts with Eligo Energy have been droppedA service end date from the utility, [redacted] is pendingThe customer will continue to be billed by Eligo Energy up until the service end date provided by her utility.Please let us know if there are any additional questions or concerns

Susan C [redacted] believes that she has been overcharged by Eligo Energy and is looking for a credit to be posted to her account.Eligo Energy has checked its records and found that the customer has not been overcharged by Eligo Energy and is not owed a credit.The customer authorized service with Eligo Energy on 08/08/At the time if the authorization, the customer was advised, via the [redacted] and in writing via the Welcome packet, that no savings were guaranteed.No refund will be provided since the switch authorization was valid and the energy was purchased by Eligo and consumed by the customer
Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: While I am satisfied with the end result of canceling the switch account I don't like many of the implications in this response or that it the first response wasn't even about my caseWhen I first got an email from the company that a switch was happening on August 31st when my wife and I were supposedly signed up for Eligo Energy We were together in DC for a conference working together all day (there was no way a Maryland IP address would have been anyone in my family), I called Eligo and explained my complaint about the sign up and I was told a manager would call me backProceeding the conference I didn't get any calls back from Eligo management and since they had my parent's mailing address on the order I thought it was a weird mistake Then I received the [redacted] switch order a month later and I called to figure out what was going on, twice I called I was told I was speaking to management which in this complaint said I never talked to anyone While I understand my personal information was entered into the system, it should not be that hard to believe it was not me I was spoken to rudely and told on multiple occasions from [redacted] and Eligo that the switch would happen I do in fact work for a competitor ( [redacted] Energy) and get free energy every month for the past years for my efforts, which is why I was so upset I was signed up fraudulently I am happy with my current supplier and never would have switched my account I appreciate the suggestion to see if [redacted] can lock my account and certainly would like to make sure Eligo never enrolls my account again with their servicesThe complaint was filed the day after we talked because of how rudely I was spoken to by you customer service and how much little information they could provide me about how my account information was received and verified A simple call to the new customer or return call from my initial complaint would have never needed a complaint to the Revdex.com I was tried horribly by your staff and when I requested a manager they never called and was not transferred like I was told I would beAgain I hope you take better care of your actual customers and use better customer verification processWhile you claim no foul, my wife and I never made the switch to Eligo and certainly never will Sincerely, [redacted] ***

Eligo Energy does not fraudulently enroll or slam customers.After investigating this matter, we believe that this enrollment was made by the complainant himself or someone in the complainant's household or by someone with full knowledge of the household's identifying information for the following reasons.#- This account was enrolled onlineWhen customers enroll with Eligo Energy online, the webform they use is NOT pre-filledThe customer has to input all of their account information into the formFor [redacted] customers, this information includes a name, address, phone number, email address, and the utility provided [redacted] ID numberSomeone other than Eligo entered all of this information into the webform.#- Eligo Energy's records show that someone made eight attempts to enroll this account online, from two different IP address, between 08/31/and 09/27/2016, with the last attempt being successful on 09/27/The previous seven attempts were not processed by Eligo Energy because our internal system controls marked them as fraudulentThe 09/27/attempt was not marked as fraudulent for the following reasons:- The customer used a different IP address ( [redacted] ) from the one that was used in the previous seven attempts ( [redacted] ); - It was the first attempt to enroll anyone from the IP address ( [redacted] ) for the successful enrollment; - The email address used in the successful enrollment, [redacted] @gmail.com, was not consider suspicious; - Our address validation system marked the address used - [redacted] Dr, [redacted] , MD - as a valid U.Saddress; - Only one enrollment attempt from this IP address, with this email and account number combination, was made.#- During a call with the [redacted] on 10/10/2016, he confirmed that his wife is named [redacted] ***On seven out of eight enrollment attempts, the names used to enroll the accounts were either [redacted] (most frequently used name with six attempts) or [redacted] ***.#- Two separate emails were provided during the enrollment attempts, [redacted] @gmail.com and [redacted] @gmail.comThe complainant confirmed that the first email account, [redacted] @gmail.com, belonged to himself.#- The IP addresses used were: [redacted] and [redacted] These IP addresses are located in Baltimore, MD and Abingdon, MD, respectively, which are within miles of the complainant's house.#- Eligo Energy has no records of any other enrollment attempts from these IP addresses for any other accounts, or prior to 08/31/2016, or after 09/27/The two IP addresses used only submitted enrollments for Mr***'s accountThis leads us to believe that the complainant was likely not a victim of a larger identity theft scheme or Eligo would have seen more enrollments attempts from these two IP addresses.#- The utility provided [redacted] ID number, [redacted] , cannot be found onlineAdditionally, the utility company, [redacted] does not publish an eligibility list containing [redacted] ID numbers or Utility Account numbersAs a result, rates of true identity fraud are extremely low in the [redacted] territory.Eligo Energy CSRs spoke with Mr, [redacted] concerning this matter on two separate occasions on 10/10/There is no record that Mr [redacted] ever spoke to a manager at Eligo EnergyThe reps cancelled his Eligo Energy enrollment, per his request, then explained to him that his account had not yet, and mostly likely would not go into service with Eligo EnergyEligo Energy does not decide when enrollments start or stop serviceThat decision is made by the customer's utility based on the utility's own internal rules and is then communicated to Eligo EnergyAccount changes can take one to two billing cycles to process on the utility's side.Concerning his desire to prevent the enrollment of his account with suppliers in the future, Eligo Energy's advice is to contact his utility and explore his optionsSome utility companies allow customers to place blocks on their accounts.Mr [redacted] was provided with a cancellation confirmation # of [redacted] at the time of his call on 10/10/Eligo Energy also mailed him a postcard confirming the cancellation of his account in writing.Please note that Eligo Energy received this complaint the day after we spoke to the customer twice, cancelled his account, and confirmed for the customer that service on his account had not and would most likely not take effect with Eligo EnergyFurthermore, it appears that the complainant works for a competitor of Eligo Energy.Please let us know if there are any additional questions or concerns
