“I moved to a new commercial property and opened my new...”

Written on: 11/12/2015 by hlHensley25 (1 review written)

I moved to a new commercial property and opened my new restaurant. Since 10th Nov I kept receiving phone calls from Opus and various other suppliers claiming that my energy account is in danger and I need to urgently sign a contract with them. I already signed a contract with a different supplier but still the calls from Opus did not stop. Finally they somehow got my bank details claiming that I signed the contract with them over the phone and if I cancel the contract now then they are… Read Full Review

“BULLIES AND AVOID AT ALL COSTS ”

We were looking to move in to new premises were opus had been the supplier however the previous tenant had the electric supply cut off !! We called opus to ask how much they would charge before we signed up for the tenancy agreement. Several calls later and the threat of ofgem they finally informed us that they would require over £400 jut to turn the electric back on !! I explained that we are a new customer and it is not us that should be suffering for someone else's mistake !! They wanted to… Read Full Review

“incompetent, bordering on dishonest”

Written on: 26/11/2015 by HannahMitchell1977 (1 review written)

The worst energy company I have ever had the displeasure to deal with (and I've dealt with NPower). For the first four months I've been with them over charging by up to 1000%...yes 1000% every month, even with meter reading. Blaming it on Siemens as they say they can't remotely access the smart meter, but don't seem to be prepared to do anything about it. They've told me I should be getting a call from Siemens to check the meter and a halt has been put on my debits, but every month the same: no… Read Full Review

“Vile Company”

Written on: 23/11/2015

After months of having to communicate with Opus Energy I am ecstatic to never have to deal with them again. I can’t express the stress and upset they have caused the business I work for, let alone others that haven’t been able to terminate a contract with them. Knowing what a nasty company they are I advise anyone even thinking about using them for an electricity supplier to read the copius amount of reviews from unhappy customers. Opus Energy’s staff members have been poorly trained and… Read Full Review

“Bullying and incompetent”

Written on: 19/11/2015 by pdSchneider162 (1 review written)

I am a relatively new business owner and I am afraid rather naïve. I spoke to Opus energy because the premises that I had taken a new lease on had Opus as their current supplier. After a fast paced conversation, I agreed to a contract which they said had to be as long as my lease (3 years) at this point I was stupidly unaware that I did not have a "cooling off period" as I though that this was the law. The person with whom I had the conversation with rang me back and left me a message asking… Read Full Review

“OVERCHARGING ON ESTIMATED INVOICES”

Written on: 07/11/2015 by rzBartlett128 (1 review written)

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS LOT- THEY ARE USELESS.. THEY WILL SPEAK TO YOU, PROMISE TO GET THIER INVOICING RIGHT, AND 2 WEEKS LATER THEY WILL BE BACK TO WHERE YOU STARTED. I CONSTANTLY HAVE TO CORRECT THEM ON MASSIVELY OVER- ESTIMATED INVOICES. JUST A NIGHTMARE AND IT TAKES PLENTY OF TIME TO SORT THEM OUT ON THE PHONE AFTER EMAILING… Read Full Review

Ask them to put you in a smart meter, or even better give them your readings each month so they don't need to estimate.

“OPUS WILL BE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE! HIGHLY AVOID!!!”

Written on: 30/10/2015

I took over a new business in April 2014, the previous owner was with Opus. I changed the energy supplier and things were going smooth. Then all of a sudden suppliers changed without my knowledge, supply went back to Opus!Opus had demanded payments for the period when I was not in contract with them and they are charging absolutely ridiculous amount of money for that transitional period. Despite raising my concerns they have referred the matter to the debt recovery company. To make matters… Read Full Review

“I've never had a contract with Opus and that is the...”

Written on: 21/10/2015 by Narf (1 review written)

I've never had a contract with Opus and that is the problem. I recently took over a pub and started a contract with Eon, all with problems. Apart, that is from the ten days between taking on the pub and the Eon contract coming in to effect. The previous tenant used Opus, so in the transition period they continued to supply the premises. I currently pay £200 per month for electricity. Usage is fairly static as the same items are used for the same time each day. The only extra usage is the oven… Read Full Review

This has exactly happened with us ! Opus had demanded payments for the period when I was not in contract with them and they are charging absolutely ridiculous amount of money for that transitional period. Despite raising my concerns they have referred the matter to the debt recovery company. To make matters worse , rather Opus forwarding the limited company details , they have passed on my personal details to the debt collection company whereas the so called bills were addressed to the limited company. I have refused to pay.

“They will be your worst nightmare, avoid them!!!”

Written on: 05/10/2015 by csLian (1 review written)

Before I start, I would like to apologize for my English as I'm not a native speaker. I took over a business from one of my friend in May. At that time I tried to change all the utility providers into my account. All other companies such as British Gas and Bristol Water changed without any hassle or trouble except OPUS energy, I told them I'm happy to continue to be their customer if they can give me a reasonable tariff. At first, they said they could not change the account to my name… Read Full Review

It's sad to hear that. They are the worst ever!! I wonder why they can still run the business with those unfair policy against the customers. Let's stay together to boycott them and hopefully they will go bankrupt soon...

“Immoral greedy & bullying company!”

Written on: 03/10/2015 by Upshot355 (1 review written)

I have had a long standing disagreement with Opus energy regarding alleged out of contract rates. I am still a paying customer. This morning I received a personal charging order in the sum of £8500. Yes over EIGHT THOUSAND POUNDS. A couple of months ago I engaged a local solicitor to help as I didn't know how to deal with the arrogant, unhelpful litigation officer who when asked why they were wanting ridiculous out of contract costs advised because they could. I am a small cafe, micro… Read Full Review

“Scamming Cold Callers”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by ErikTaylor (1 review written)

This company cold me today saying I was owed £573.69 for over payments on my energy bills, they then proceeded to ask for my energy provider, card details and bank address allegedly to 'verify that I was the right person to refund this money to'. However after confirming for the third time I did own a business the 'manager' of the department promptly hung up on me. Please don't waste your time with these people I don't even know how they got this number… Read Full Review

“Do Not Use This Company !”

Written on: 15/09/2015 by bingo1066 (1 review written)

We were strong-armed into signing up with Opus on a temporary as we had just moved into new premises - however we wish we had read this review first ... we had no long term commitment so we rapidly switched to EON after 2 weeks. Meanwhile the first we heard from Opus was a terse and very rude person demanding £688 for 2 weeks supply (while the shop was empty) and threatening legal action on our first contact with the firm. We are yet to see the bill ... if you have any sense do not go anywhere… Read Full Review

“BEWARE !”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by Ramirezrw245 (1 review written)

I have a pub. My initial contract with Opus 4 years ago had good rates due to a relationship with my landlord/brewer. However nearing the end of the contract I was contacted by Opus during lunch time, my busy time - I told them I was not able to discuss then could they call back, they put me onto a rolling contract, with high rates. When I tried to discuss with them they said it was too late & was locked into a new contract. I have now given notice to end & just had a call from Opus saying… Read Full Review

“WARNING - DO NOT USE THIS SUPPLIER ”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by cbParsons91 (1 review written)

I am a landlord of a commercial property. The tenant went into insolvency owing outstanding money for gas and electricity. Opus were their supplier. I contacted Opus and gave them all the details including the name of the liquidator. The building was empty for 18 months so I paid the standing charges to keep the electricity and gas on for the burglar alarm and the boiler in the winter. I received a telephone call one Friday afternoon telling me I owed £5000 and wanted to know how I was… Read Full Review

“Do not think of entering a contract with Opus Energy”

Written on: 24/06/2015 by 223Mueller (1 review written)

This company is a disgrace. It does not do what it says, and tries to cheat you. It latest ploy is a"deemed contract" WE gave them proper notice that we had sold our lease, and when the day came they refused to transfer the account to the new supplier. They eventually agreed the change and charged a very high penalty rate for the extra time. They used the "Deemed Contract"Act, which is not meant to be used like this. We have contacted Ofgen and they are looking at it now. I will report back… Read Full Review

“Sharks”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by Alexander278 (1 review written)

Offered a cheap price to get us hooked, then put the rates up nearly 30% after a year. Assured us that they sent us a letter informing us of the increase and that we are now stuck on a contract for 12 months. Now we have been trying to leave but they have rejected the transfer request because they say the transfer day was a day out. This is incorrect the ECHO system that all suppliers use states that the request date entered by our new suppliers was correct. Conveniently they have now put us on… Read Full Review

Moved into my new business premises and after a month of not using it as I was decorating (during the day, no need to use electricity) I got sent a bill for £280. I rang them and they said it's because the previous person cancelled the contract so I was using Emergency Rates. They told me to send them another reading so I did. The next bill was for £530!!!!!!! For a month!!! So I rang again and got told I should send them the reading again so I did. Next thing I know is that they have taken… Read Full Review
