Do your research before choosing this energy company. They sign you up for a decent looking plan with "guaranteed" savings at the end of the year but make you sign up for the discount plan on a yearly basis. They claim to mail you a notice but many do not receive this ---myself included. If you don't renew this signup they put you in a "variable" plan which charges 3x the local utility rate....

We used Ambit Energy as our provider for electric and gas as opposed to PSEG. Without notice after contract expired increased both bills to way over market rate without any basis. Our electric bill by 70% on a per KWH basis. This is basic price gauging without any basis. When I called to find out the basis for the new arbitrary charges they claimed it was market. When I showed that it was a... Read more

I signed up for guaranteed savings plan. They changed my plan without written notice. Now they charge me triple the amount I used to pay. Current gas rate for 1 therm is 35 cents and Ambit is charging me $1.06. Ambit energy states that a renewal letter was mailed to my address, but I didn’t receive anything. Obviously they are counting on consumers not taking action with the letter sent (or... Read more

In my opinion, Ambit, or any company like Ambit is only as good as the person that is working it. If you aren't making money - there is probably something wrong with either your work ethic, or how you are approaching people. This is not a get rich quick company - and you are not working for anyone but yourself. If you aren't doing well - surround yourself with positive people who are doing well... Read more

contract ran out and ambit put the off peak charge from 3 cents kwh up to 12 cents kwh mid peak from 7 cents up to 15 cents kwh on peak from 7 cents up to 16 cents all without any notice. Called them and asked what is going on. They are like tough luck buddy it is your fault that the contract ran out. You will now pay what the open market is. Rates on open market are not near that high. There is... Read more

I consider myself a fairly good steward of my finances. Supposedly they sent a letter telling me my plan was changing unless I called and asked for a better plan. I never saw the letter. My rates went through the roof. Double. If you're not looking they will rip you off. I consider myself a fairly good steward of my finances.

signed up for their var. rate and was a customer for 2 years. Got my bill and freaked. When I called them they tell me it is my fault for using the variable rate. I ask them what was the rate I was being billed and they told me 18 cents per. Fully 9 cents more than they were advertising on their web site for the Variable . When I ask them why, I was all but told that it was because I let them get... Read more

I have been a customer and consultant for Ambit for 4 years. I was promised a savings based on my choosing their guaranteed savings plan. The only requirement is I renew this option every year. Fortunately I did this and I have experienced savings and piece of mind. Even with the volatile energy market my savings were greater than the guarantee. I also exercised their option of getting free... Read more
