Energy Simply Terms Of Use

This site is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions and notices contained herein. Your use of this site constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions and notices. This site is powered and operated by EnergySimply LLC ("Energy Simply", "we" or "us"). You must be 18 years of age or older to use this site.

Energy Simply is a service of EnergySimply LLC, that, among other things, allows subscribers to locate, evaluate, and enroll in energy services with third party providers. By using the Service, you accept the terms of this Agreement. This is a legally binding agreement between you and Energy Simply.

Energy Simply operates solely as a service provider by providing prospective buyers access to pre-screened energy offers that meet certain proprietary conditions. You are not permitted to use the Service unless you have successfully subscribed to be a customer of the Service (“Customer”).

The Service is available to Customers to assist in the purchase of energy. Additionally, optional related services may be purchased. The price and other terms remain subject to service agreements between the buying Customer and the third party provider. Energy Simply cannot guarantee the rates and/or services provided by the third party vendor.

Energy Simply has the right to cancel or suspend a Customer’s account at any time and without notice upon a breach, violation or non-compliance of this Agreement or any other policies, terms of use, or agreements of Energy Simply. Notwithstanding the foregoing, under no circumstances shall Energy Simply be required to issue refunds hereunder.

Energy Simply is the provider of the Service and is not a party to any contract concluded pursuant to the Service. Energy Simply is not responsible or liable to any Customer, or any other user of the Service in any way, including, without limitation, any disputes arising out of the contract between Customers and third party energy service providers, such as disputes related whether the parties have fully performed their obligations thereunder and any disputes related to whether a contract has been validly entered into or concluded.

Each energy transaction shall be consummated directly between the Customer and third party provider, and Energy Simply has no interest, as broker or otherwise, in such transaction.

Fees

The use of the Energy Simply site requires a Energy Simply service subscription, and we currently offer monthly subscriptions at $5/month for Residential customers and $25/month for small commercial customers. A separate service subscription is required for each meter.

Some notes about Energy Simply service subscriptions:

By clicking "Start Saving" and thereby creating an account you agree to allow Energy Simply to sign you up for and access on-line accounts on the Smart Meter Texas and/or the CenterPoint TrueCost sites, including agreeing to any terms and conditions necessary to do so on your behalf.

Until you cancel a subscription by notifying Energy Simply customer service at admin@energysimp.ly, it will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term at the same fee (even if you are not using the Energy Simply service).

Monthly Energy Simply service subscriptions may not be transferred to another meter or subscriber.

Although we strive to make the Energy Simply service available as much as possible, there may be periods of downtime (for example, for scheduled maintenance, software updates, or events outside of our reasonable control).

Multi-Service Discount

In some cases, we offer discounted Energy Simply service fees when you have more than one meter on the same account. Contact customer service at admin@energysimp.ly for more information.

Payment Terms

When you provide credit card information to us, you represent that you are the authorized user of the card, and agree to notify us of any changes to the relevant account number, expiration date, and billing address, or if the card expires or is canceled. You agree that we may receive updated credit card information (such as a new expiration date) from your credit card issuer.

We will charge your credit card on each billing date for your Energy Simply service subscription, and (if applicable) when we process early termination fees. You are responsible for reviewing your credit card statement for billing accuracy.

Unless notified by Energy Simply, your service subscription will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term at the same fee, and you authorize us to automatically charge the subscription fee to your credit card each billing date until you cancel your subscription 30 days prior to auto-renewal by contacting customer service at admin@energysimp.ly. Subscription fees paid prior to cancellation are nonrefundable.

Some notes about payments:

By subscribing to the Energy Simply service, you authorize us to charge the applicable subscription fees (and any other applicable fees, such as an early termination fee) to your credit card on file.

If your credit card reaches its expiration date and you have not updated your payment information with us or cancelled your account, you authorize us to continue billing your credit card and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

Each charge on the applicable billing date applies to the subscription period immediately following the billing date (so a charge for a monthly subscription in January is for the Energy Simply service in the month of February).

All prices on EnergySimp.ly are listed in U.S. Dollars.

We reserve the right to increase the monthly subscription fee for Energy Simply service subscribers paying month-to-month with no commitment, but we will notify you 30 days in advance. If you do not accept the new fees, you should terminate your subscription before the new fees go into effect.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your subscription to the service without notice if your credit card is rejected or if your card issuer seeks the return of payments previously made to us. You agree to pay (1) any outstanding balance in full within 30 days of cancellation of your subscription, and (2) a late charge on all amounts more than 30 days past due. The late charge will be 1.5% of the past due amount or the highest rate allowed by law (whichever is less) per month. Such rights are in addition to and not in lieu of any other legal right or remedies available to Energy Simply.

We also reserve the right to refer your account to a third party for collection to pursue unpaid amounts, and you will remain liable to us for all unpaid charges and all the costs we incur to collect those charges (such as collection agency fees).
