It's a good time to check your HVAC system's air filter! If it looks dirty, change it. A dirty filter makes your system work harder.-DOE

In my opinion this is the worst electricity company out there. Power outages ALL the time that take hours to fix. Last night is no exception as the power went out around 8:45 and did not come back on ...till early morning. 6-7hrs later. Unacceptable to say the least. See More

Power is out way too often! Wish the payment would reflect the numerous times it is out with a reduction!

This is a shit company. They rip you off so bad. I paid over 200 dollars in two weeks for a back bill that added up because of something that wasn't anyone's fault. But now they are trying to shut us if we don't pay over 200 dollars more by tomorrow? They literally take all of your money. See More

I'm happy to have rec as my electric company..even though the electric goes out easy, it don't take them long to come out to see what the problem is and get it back on. I've had other company's and my... bill isn't that much with rec compared to others that were outrageous in price! Guess it all depends if u live in a house or apartment. See More

I have had Northwestern REC for over a decade. Their service has decreased tremendously over the past year. We never used to have power outages and now we have them ever month for extended hours. any large company, they really don't care about the consumer. See More

If you have made an attempt during the winter to keep your electric paid, but cant pay all of it. Don't worry. They'll shut you off come spring anyway. Electric off? Paid your bill? Reconnect fee, tri...p fee? You'll get turned back on the NEXT day! Work? Days? You no 7-3:30? Closed wen u get home. Electric off? Tough! Their motto should be, Where we screw the ppl! Enuff rant ty very much. See More

I am just amazed that this company can have some of the most caring and understanding people and then you have a few that give you a bad name. With my husband laid off and my first paycheck not coming... in till the 15th of Nov. We asked if Rec could wait until the 29th of Oct and we could pay our bill that is being "shut off" on the 27th and was told there is no way they can wait two days for their money and we should ask family or friends to borrow it. Are you serious??!!
I'm just at a loss for words right now...seriously REC if waiting for our payment for two days might bankrupt you, something is very wrong there!!

An awesome electric company and terrific employees! They keep us "turned on" in all kinds of weather and if the power does go out, they work very hard to get it back on in record time!!!
