The Dynamic Duo!
“ I decided to switch from GA Natural Gas so I called and spoke with a nice gentleman by the name of Elias. Elias was so patient and kind and explained all of the different programs I was eligible for and how they worked. He even told me he would call me back to ensure I locked in my new rate. I called back and got Alan. Alan told me I didn't need a deposit now because the requirements had changed since speaking with Elias. He was also patient, knowledgeable (just like Elias), and kind. I am feeling very happy that I made the switch. I feel like I am in good hands. ”

Scana Service Report
“ I have had Scana for 4 years. Overall their service is of normal quality. My bill is always right. I have no complaints on average, however, the one time I missed a payment they cut me off and forced me to pay the bill in full and do another deposit. Other than that one experience I usually never talk to them or have any issues from them. ”

“ I have had Gassouth for 2 years and it's been great. The rates are affordable. There is no deposit at sign up. The Best part is the yearly perks. Disney on Ice was great!! ”

My over outcome
“ I love the fact that I didn't have a deposit and everything was.so easy to set up service. But 3days later I received a email saying that I have a $150 deposit and I really wasn't happy with the email because before the text I was under the impression that I didn't have a deposit and I felt like that was very mislea on Scana energy behalf. ”

GNG during COVID19
“ Why is Georgia Natural Gas disconnecting people at this time and charging additional deposits to reconnect gas for those who can barely pay the bill. This is not helping hard working citizens who are trying their best to stay afloat during a Global crisis that is not their fault. Im am shocked and appalled as well very disappointed with GNG to find this out when it recently happen to me. I am left in a bad financial position now but will be able to find a way to adjust and recover. But for those who simply do not have the money to pay the bill in the first place due to COVID circumstances and will also be required to pay a hefty deposit fee ($150.00) + $60 reconnection fee along with the full past due and current charge well that is really unreasonable and contributes to the problems that have been exposed in 2020 in regards to the United States of America and the treatment of it's American citizens. ”

I did not have a problem with my gas when I had an account. The apartment I was living in had a fire so I had to cancel my service. I was suppose to get my deposit back but for about 2 months they have been telling lie after lie about my deposit the Reps wont let me speak to a supervisor. It's not a lot of money but like they want the monies for their services I want my deposit back. I Rep told me 3 weeks when the 3 weeks came i called back now they tell me it was applied to my account what account? Another told me they sent it to the bank.what bank.i never gave them any bank info. Why is it so hard to get my monies or even get the truth from this company. Hopefully someone will get in touch with me about this matter

Will Steal Your Deposit
“ I signed up because of the great rate and they promised to return my $150 deposit in six months. Well they didn't. My card was compromised and i changed my card after my due date one month out of six months and they had no exceptions, no empathy. Good luck with that. So i immediately switched to a provider who wasn't charging a deposit. ”

Should be called Scam ya and not Scana
“ While this company will soon be called Dominion Energy, it is the biggest scam. This company disconnected my services in below freezing weather in February without being 30 days behind. The bill was for $90. Yes; it was an oversight on my part and I admit. However, I remitted the $90 payment immediately, but I was told that I not only had to pay the $90, but the new bill of $90 had to be paid, plus $75 reconnect fee and because I was NOT initially equired to pay a deposit based on credit, I now had to pay $150 deposit BEFORE I could get my services restored. So, for $90, I am required to pay $405 in freezing temperatures and the earliest that my services can/could be turned on is in 3 BUSINESS days. NO company should turn off services in the dead of winter. This is inhumane and poor customer service. IF you are seeking a gas company...LOOK somewhere else. I certainly have. ”

They are incompetent and cannot establish an account for 2 months!
I tried to transfer my account on December 12, 2021. The account was supposed to be established on January 1st, 2022. I paid them a security deposit of 150 dollars since they said they couldn't verify my credit for some reason. I own a house, so my credit score isn't an issue. Regardless that's not the issue.
January comes but there's no notification about whether my account was established. I call them and they can't locate my account. I had to speak to 3 different people until someone was able to locate my account through the email address to which they sent the confirmation number of the 150 dollar Security deposit payment. They told me it'll be established on the first of February and that they'll give me the credit on the extra I'll be charged on my current plan due to their mistakes.
On January 12, I receive an email saying my Security deposit payment was refunded. I call them again to see what's going on. Again, they cannot find my account. I have to reenroll for February. The representative tells me that since the account was not established and they cannot find it, I will have to reenroll from scratch. I would have been ok with it, but when I asked will I be credited the difference in the high rate I am paying with my current company, she told me she cannot promise that. Then, I asked to speak to a supervisor. He was able to locate all of my requests to enroll, all the way from November 2021 when I tried to enroll on their website. He told me they have different systems to process things and the representative did not check those hence, they couldnt locate my account. Then, I was transferred to another specialist and she tells me that nothing is wrong with the account and that the reason for the refund was that my credit was verified and they did not need that payment. Finally, she did promise to upheld the promise to credit my account for the extra charge I will incur due to their mistakes.
From this frustrating experience, I'll tell Constellations to provide better tools and training to your regular representatives and communicate better with your customers with emails whenever a change occurs to their accounts.
For any new customer, just make sure you have the enrollment ID and speak directly to a supervisor as the regular representatives either don't have the necessary access to help you and or they lack the training to help you adequately. ”

“ Due to the CORONA fiasco I was unable to lift the credit freeze on my credit (no fault of my own). Their solution was to charge me a deposit to continue the order process. When I protested, they pulled the plug on our conversation, Rep. told me to have a good day. I am credit worthy, however, they don't know that (again not my fault). My advice to anyone looking for a gas provider, look elsewhere, it may cost a little more, but, it will be cheaper in the long run. ”
