Power NI Reviews

Power NI has an overwhelmingly positive customer reputation, boasting a 5-star rating on Trustpilot although this is taken from just over 60 reviews, with only one negative review that seemed to be criticising the company’s answer machine rather than their customer service or the general service of the company.

Vivien Ann Hughes on Trustpilot:

Since I have been a customer of Power NI, I have never had reason to complain about any communication dealings I have had with them. Speaking to their Customer Services is a joy, as any requests or enquiries I have, are all answered and dealt with very quickly.

Answering machine service is brutal and doesn’t work.

Summary

Power NI could have more precise information on their website as well as estimated bills, especially as that is the general standard to decide which supplier you would like to switch to. However, apart from that this company has a glowing reputation and many customers have ended up switching back to them after trying other companies!

Pros

  • Local to Northern Ireland
  • Lots of options for businesses
  • Services for renewable energy generators

Cons

  • No easy pricing indicators
  • No quotes available
  • Confusing information on their website
