2 salesmen came into my business 10 minutes before closing time and mis-represented themselves as if they were connected to NG. They demanded I show them a copy of my bill. When they didn't leave immediately as asked I made it much clearer that they were indeed leaving NOW. It wasn't pretty. I'm sure they won't be back.

Is there anyway to report this kind of harrassment?I feel sorry for the older people who are being pushed around by these jerks.

Gateway Energy Services is a SCAM. I had it for a year and they were consistently over the prices the utility charges directly, though only by a few cents.

The month I cancelled, my bill came in 45% higher than if I stuck with my utility in the first place.

I called and they said since I cancelled, there is nothing I can do.

SCAM...buyer beware...i turned out to be the sucker, don't do it.

Last winter i had a door to door salesman come to my house too. I invited him in, as soon as he looked down i cracked his skull with a claw hammer. He fell down and was knocked out. Blood was pooling in my hall so i dragged him into the basement and began cutting and grinding him into freezer meat. So i gotta say. since he came i have saved over $75 in meats alone this yr. Plus i ebay'd his boots,hat, and coat, and pawned his wedding ring.. I just wish more door to door people would visit me..

You should use something like an angle grinder to grind the teeth into powder - dental records are forensics best friend. You could have fed him to some hungry boars in Blossvale.

These people have gouged me deeply. They started out lower than the local supplier then quickly went up over twice as much. Now they want over $1000 for a final bill. As natural gas has dropped 60% since I've had them my bill has only gone up. They charge more than twice the local kilowatt/hour rate than the local supplier. I would NEVER recommend Gateway to anyone for any reason. Do not trust these people at all.

We switched 6 months ago, they promised significant savings. I didn't see much savings, in fact the bills seemed higher, so I called our Orange and Rockland company and they compared real rates. Guess what? The ORU rates are 6.5 cents per kilowatt, and Gateways 9.9 cents! There are your "significant savings". This company is a rip off! I canceled both accounts, hope they go away.

National Grid can only charge you what they pay for the actual kilowatt and therm. They make their money on the delivery charges.
Now National Grid has over 3 million electric and gas customers in the USA. So how can any other small sale company compare in shear volume

If anyone is interested in comparing rates you can log on to newyorkpowertochoose.com

It has rates for all the ESCO's doing business in NY that handle the supply end. National Grid for instance can only profit on delivey charges due to the deregulation law. Currently if you have not chosen to allow national grid to choose a supplier you prefer, they are giving you what ever one they want. I have chosen Ambit Energy as my supplier. National Grid will still deliver, bill and take care of any outages. My reason for choosing Ambit was simple. They offer a competitive rate in comparison to all the other esco's. In fact it's usually lower every time I look. On top of that they have a written gurantee to always be the lowest. Plus the have a program that allows you to earn Free Energy. It simple terms - refer 15 friends and family to the service, and they will send you a check every month for the amount of supply you use, as long as 15 those 15 people stay customers. I have been a customer since 0ctober 2012. I have since referred the 17 people to ambit - and I am now earning the free energy. In addition - there are other rewards for being a loyal ambit customer. If anyone has any interest in more info or becoming a customer - feel free to email me @ malach@roadrunner.com

Hope this helps! And please refrain from any door to door salesman or phone calls trying to switch you. Unless you know them personally, your probably getting false information.

Ambit will not give you their rates until you fork over personal information like your current utility bills. Its a scam, bait and switch. "Oh tell me how much you are paying and I *guarantee* we will save you money" BS line.

Pyramid scheme like Amway.

If you want to swich supplier for the best deal possible I recommend using Tower Utility. I did and my bills are lower. I've made a small research on my own and it turned out that I couldn't find better one.

I switched to gateway ,got my 75 dollars in about 4 months, really have no problem with them and my bills are lower across the board.Its nice that there is competition on the rates,it does help to lower the rates if they want your business.Its like when you have competition at corner gas stations the rate per gallon is less than when the gas station is the only one for miles.

Ambit Energy is the only alternative supplier that offers an actual written guarantee to save at least 2% over what you would pay for your supply compared to your incumbent provider. It isn't a huge savings, but in today's world any savings counts. If you use a coupon at the grocery store, choose the $.01 per gallon cheaper gas station and haggle to buy a new car, this makes sense. Why pay more than you have to? http://billg.joinambit.com to learn more.

Cretin came to my door & tried to get me to switch. I told him to get lost or I'd put my boot up his asz. He told me he wanted my boot up his asz. So I did it. He left smiling.
