Customers' biggest complaints in their Lumo Energy reviews include:

  • Sudden price hikes
  • Difficulty contacting Lumo Energy customer service
  • Slow to connect solar panels
  • Delays with new Lumo Energy connections

Addy Oates says in their 1-star Lumo Energy review on TrustPilot: I receive a txt message this morning saying that my gas evenpay is going from $24 a week to $50 a week. My yearly bill is less than $1000 but they want me to pay $2600 in the next year. When I called to ask why the response was the company has decided and that was that. What a joke as soon as my account is finalised under the new agreement I’m leaving this is disgusting

However, there are some positive Lumo Energy reviews available on the web as well. Many happy Lumo Energy customers have been with Lumo for years, and cite in their positive reviews:

  • Frequent notices about new, cheaper, rates that are available

Jenny9371 of Central Highlands and Goldfields, Vic cites the following reasons for her 5-star Lumo Energy review: I’ve had my gas and electricity with lumo for over 5 years now including 2 house moves. They were super accommodating with dates for connection when I needed to change last minute from my last property. I’ve been with other providers where I’ve had nothing but trouble and the service with lumo is why I stay. I’ve just recommended lumo to my sister for her connection too. Thanks lumo for being my constant stress free experience
