Complaint Review: nipsco
nipsco Northern indiana public service company We send a disconnect notice for moving. Bill goes SKY HIGH! merriville Indiana
We have been backing for the last month and a half.... Before everything was all packed up we had 3 bedrooms (2 with TV's surround sound in one etc.) a Living room and dining room. We packed up the fish tank ( a huge waste on electric) as well as 2 of the rooms.
Now we only have 1 computer (as opposed to two that were up) 1 TV, game system and surround sound hooked up. Of course a couple of phone chargers, and appliances in the kitchen.... We left the heat on what we leave it on pretty much all year. 72 degrees... The weather went into an AVG of 18 Degrees threw the month... (ok cold i get it heat bill is gonna be a little higher).
I received the next bill. We litterally doubled our usage in gas(without touching the thermostat) and our electric bill somehow was higher then the month prior when we had all the rooms hooked up and the fish tank and extra computer laptop..etc...
I called, got a rep on the phone, as soon as i said I found it hard to believe my electric is higher now then it was before all my electronics were put away, I got every excuse in the world. About Oh when the furnace kicks on more, its gonna raise your electric usage.
There was 4 more days in that month, over the last month (somehow means 4 days of use puts me right back to all my electronics being plugged in AND THEM SOME) Maybe you left your lights on or something.... (excuse me? Yea thats what made the bill so high...)
They had just installed new meters on the house Which I said are probably getting wrong readings.... (fell on deaf ears) of course that cant be it, cause then they would have to give back money or... GOD FORBID correct their billing.
This company is a joke, Strange how I get this problem when i just called them the last month to let them know we are cancelling service because of moving.. IF YOU CAN FIND ANOTHER GAS/ELECTRIC COMPANY TO USE DO IT. DO NOT USE THESE SCAM ARTISTS THEY WILL GET YOU! AND WHATS WORSE IS THERE IS NO WAY TO DISPROVE THEM!
