Big oil. Bigger disappointment.
When I signed up I thought the platform was interesting, with prepaid deals and stuff, bit of energy use data. Was not the cheapest but it was carbon offset and kinda cool.
One day the little prepaid deals stopped coming. I wondered what happened.
Then I learned through the news that Powershop had been quietly bought out by the evil Royal Dutch Shell. I am not going to pay for a company like that to greenwash their crimes.
NOW OWNED BY SHELL!!! The most evil polluters in history.
Sold to Shell Oil & Gas to get rich.
Your money will now go into the pockets of one of the worst polluters and climate manipulators in history!
So disappointed with them.
Untrustworthy and owned by Shell
Moved to the company for the green power. Now they are selling out to shell, one of the companies most responsible for climate change. This company can not be trusted and is definitely not the green option.
They won't be loyal or give you the best rate but they'll spin it like a politician and avoid the question.
They notified us they were passing on the additional 84 hours a week of off peak afforded to them by the wholesaler and then reneged but still dropped our feed in tarrif. We have been with Powershop for probably a decade. I knew I could get cheaper power, but I stuck with them because of their environmental credentials. They offer lower rates to new customers, I know this because I asked after seeing my rates were higher than their lowest offer on the government's electricity comparison website. Still I stuck with them. I guess I'm just sick of them playing the victim, passing on the few cents of price drop on the power feed in and ignoring the massive savings they receive on the off-peak period which they don't pass on.
Leaving after 7 years
They used to be great, but the past couple of years their level of service, pricing and transparency has really fallen. The Shell sellout put the final nail in their coffin.
Am leaving Powershop after many years of loyalty and recommendations to others because they have sold out to Shell, one of the biggest polluters in history. What a heartbreaking disappointment. Really thought Powershop were a brand to be proud of. Not anymore.
Selling out to Shell is NOT Energy you can be proud of
Given the recent sell out to Shell - the whole ethos of this company now seems to be null and void. Not happy. And switching to another company. Cheers Powershop. What a shame
Sold to Shell, what the hell? Like Sea Shepherd being sold to a Japanese Whaling Company.
Disgusted with the sale to one of the worlds highest polluters and blockers of climate change initiatives. We have left after years of supporting Powershop. Meridian leadership should be ashamed. This is like if Sea Shepherd were sold to a Japanese Whaling company.
Powershop just bought out by a fossil fuel company. I'M LEAVING!
I've been a loyal Powershop customer since they started in 2010. I have always advocated for their business model and their ethics and approach to the environment. But that ended on Monday when it was announced that Powershop had been acquired by Shell - environmental vandals! I'm gone and I hope others leave too!
After being with Powershop for several years on and off, I am switching to another cheaper and more ethical company. Powershop is no longer what it used to be, its prices have increased and the recent announcement of Shell taking over The company is the final straw. This is nothing less than greenwash and evidence Powershop is no longer committed to sustainable energy. At a time when the effects of climate change and global warming are increasingly evident, it is unconscionable. I suspect Powershop will lose many customers because of this decision and that is the price the company will have pay for making such a terrible decision.
Recently aquired by a company hell-bent on exterminating life on planet earth.
Powershop was recently sold to a fossil fuel giant that undermines the credability of the original company's ethos, and has been the very reason I have concsiously supported them to date. Don't further line the pockets of this climate vandal. Voting with your wallet is all this company will respect. Don't join and get out if you are already a customer.
Now owned by huge polluter Shell
Would not recommend getting energy from Powershop now that they have been bought by the Shell company meaning the energy is by default not renewable. I will be looking elsewhere for an independent 100% renewable option.
Sold out to Shell. Nothing green about them
I've been disappointed with their service for a while now. Dodgy estimates of usage, ultra low solar feed-in-tariffs, difficult and dismissive customer service.
However, at least they were one of the (or the most) "green" power companies.
Unfortunately, they couldn't resist become zillionaires by selling out to the worst climate criminals in history. Yep. Like a villian story straight out of Captain Planet.
This company is a rip off
I was a customer for over 3 years, then moved to my new home recently. This company does mostly estimated readings which isn’t very good because they try and charge as much as possible. They charged me $172 for 12 days of power, I had my solar installed during that time period and my power readings were still high. I was charged $170 for my last estimated reading for my last house that I had moved out of and no one was even living in the house at the time because we were only cleaning the house. We didn’t have no showers in the home, no TVs run...ning or fridges because we were living in our new house. I sent them pictures of the last readings, talked to them many times and they didn’t accept the pictures.. They are a rip off, do not trust them..
Used to be a gem, but now a dud
One star because they used to be fantastic and a great innovative company. I have been with PS for six years. They offered most competitive rates back then. They also had a fantastic app that made power shopping fun. They also used to have fun specials that related to current events that was interesting. Felt like the original employees of the company loved working for Powershop and I can tell the app developers were highly skilled. Seems something had changed and the personality of the company changed. The talentless hacks took over and the t...alent got chased away. It feels like they now have an arrogant running the place and it shows in the way customers feel about Powershop. The early-buying electricity specials and random specials stopped coming and the electricity rates offered by PS are noncompetitive.
