Its plans tend to be on the cheaper side compared to some of the bigger energy retailers, but this will largely depend on which state you're in.

Pros

  • Live chat support available
  • Mobile app for plan management on the go
  • 100% carbon neural plans at no extra cost

Cons

  • Some gas plans are only available when bundled with electricity
