Written on: 09/04/2014 by O'Neal1965 (1 review written)

“Constant Harrasment from Renewals Team”

Written on: 03/04/2014 by 366Wentworth (1 review written)

I am disgusted with this company! my contract is due for renewal and the company called to renew my contract, I told them I would like to know their prices and then I would compare prices across the market for the best deal, firstly she wouldn't give me prices unless I renewed with her as she said they were the best on the market and I wouldn't need to check else where, finally 1 week later I received prices, I advised them I will compare the market and get back to them, which then the chap… Read Full Review

“Worst organisation on the planet”

Written on: 12/03/2014 by Fernandez417 (1 review written)

Over estimated bills, demand money within 14 days of invoice. Send threatening letters and pretend to be a law firm. Avoid them at all costs. I would rather live without electric than use this company… Read Full Review

Unfortunately, I have spent a year trying to sort this out to no avail and have started the process to move all our accounts to another provider.

I wrote to the CEO sometime ago and my letter was passed to Customer Service team who after some deliberation decided they could do nothing!

“Accessing the online account”

Written on: 26/02/2014 by Mitch3ll (2 reviews written)

It has been over a year now since we have opus as our electricity supplier for our commercial business, and the issue we have encountered is in accessing our online account. While the billing has mostly been accurate, I did found slightly difficult accessing the online account. This was at the beginning of the contract when I had no clue how to use it. But with the help of a very nice lady, (unfortunately can't remember her name), I got to understand the whole process. Anyway, from next month… Read Full Review

Hi I am having great difficulty with Opus energy. appalling staff and extortionate methods to take money.. I contacted the Energy ombudsman and they contacted Opus on my behalf and sorted them out. Even lead to a apology from them.

“Bullied in to contract”

Written on: 01/02/2014

I am really upset after reading these reviews. After a call from the registrations company (that doesn't exist I have later found out) I was scared in to starting a contract with Opus. I was told false rates about British Gas, my previous supplier. And I have just worked out that I will be paying more with Opus than I what I was on before . I thought I had a cooling off period but in business I've found out you don't. These vultures who call themselves brokers should be stopped! This way… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 08/01/2014

Whilst they may seem cheap initally after the contract rolled on and the rate doubled. We never received any communication from them. They are refusing to discuss this at all as we now appear to be 'locked in' to a further 15 months - the contract lenght has been extended as well. Avoid… Read Full Review

“Opus Energy are killing my small business. ”

Written on: 21/12/2013 by rizwanw2 (1 review written)

Opus Energy are killing my small business. We were paying £70 a month with our previous suppliers and moved because Opus "seemed" the best deal. After 3 months of being with Opus my bills shot up to £150+ per month. PLEASE BE WARNED DO NOT ENTER A CONTRACT WITH OPUS OR YOU WILL REGRET IT LATER… Read Full Review

“A call for change”

Written on: 29/11/2013 by Rosa123 (3 reviews written)

Last year we switched providers after a cold call (which I normally hang up on!) from opus. It happened we were unhappy with our current provider at the time because we were paying way over the odds and they were not budging on price. So we decided to change as the quote from opus was cheaper and getting a smart meter installed was important to us. During the switchover, there was a bit of an issue with the billing but overall I have been happier than I was with my previous supplier and as a… Read Full Review

“Employ real bullies to make unaware customers switch”

Written on: 20/11/2013 by isolaster (1 review written)

I got a phone call 9am in the morning by a guy who without introducing who he was told me that the landlord asked him to call us to arrange the new electricity contract for the business premisses we were looking to rent. Although I straight mentioned that we haven't signed any contracts yet, he said it was not a problem. I was confused, but since the landlord earlier mentioned that we will have to take care of the electricity contract somehow I assumed I had to go ahead with it. He than… Read Full Review

“Past issues sorted out”

Written on: 06/11/2013 by pingpong1987 (3 reviews written)

I have read a few negative reviews here, but would like to say on the whole my experience with Opus has been good. There were a couple of issues when I first started using Opus' services, but these were sorted out quickly by the customer service team. Since then I have added a smart meter for my business which I am really happy about, as now I only pay for what I use and not estimates that I have been used on in the past. I also find the pricing competitive, which again is so important if you… Read Full Review

“The worst energy company there is”

Written on: 05/11/2013 by graham12345 (1 review written)

This is a company that tricks customers on the phone by letting you think you are signing up to payments being fixed for three years then when you ask to cancel just after 24 hours they tell you that you are fixed to them for three years and that as you are a business there is no cooling off period and that is that. customer service non existing. Stay away from this company i will be complain to the offgem as this cannot be the right way to do business… Read Full Review

I would be here all day telling of my experience, but I'm a successful business man and was totally done in by this company. I wish I could leave my name on this review. I'd gladly pay people/businesses to use anyother company.

“Total rip off!”

Written on: 27/09/2013

We took over the site 3 months ago. They were charging us a pay as you go rate, even tho we contacted them at least 4 times confirming we are happy to be their new customer. When finally got to the point they created a new account they informed me all prices did not include VAT. I accepted it. Then they informed me payments made by card or cash (non-direct debit) will increase my bills by extra 7.5% --- we have now EXTRA 27,5%!!! but well. Still accepted the prices with VAT and signed up for a… Read Full Review

“It's a disgrace. No satisfaction!”

Written on: 25/09/2013

I have a friend who is going through a very similar thing with Opus. A representative from Opus walked into her shop with an appointment to offer her this so called great deal. She was told that they will supply gas for her business but not her home as they do not supply domestic. They then put her home address as well as her business even though she does no run her business from that address. When she disputed it, they told her that she gave those details ( which she obviously didn't). She… Read Full Review

My typing error. I put that a representative from Opus walked into the business with an appointment. She actually walked in WITHOUT no appointment previously made. I am very disturbed by this. I have just spoken to my friend who has the business and she is in tears. How can these people sleep at night knowing that this women has children and have taken her meter away and has no heat or hot water and still asking for £2000??
