I had taken over a rental contract after buying a property almost 5 years ago
I didn't sign anything to do with this company I just took over the payments when we bought the house
5 years later I just need to refinance but they've put a lien on the house so I can't do anything unless I pay like 20K which is ridiculous I could buy 3 furnaces for that amount of money.

In the middle of the very long heat wave in toronto, the air conditioner we are renting from oeg (already paid over $ 6000.00 by now) stopped working. I mean it's working... But not cooling. I live with my two elderly parents with health conditions and two young children. So we called the service, technician came, looked, "fixed" and left. Nothing changed. We called to cancel. Costumer service is so rude and ruthless I have no words. Even though we are over 5 years of the service, they keep telling us we have a contract for 15 years which is useful life of equipment. Well this equipment is not useful anymore. So they said if we cancel today, we have to wait 60 days (hopefully my parents survive by then) and then pay another $ 2000.00 and some, plus $ 750.00 for them to take the unit back. I forgot to mention that a salesman got my elderly father to sign the contract, even though he is not capable of any decisions for a long time, his english and understanding of canadian contracts are very poor and he believes anything he is told without questioning.

I am trying to terminate my contract on the 5th year anniversary.My contract states the installation fee will be waived if my account is in good standing at anniversary date .My account is paid to date and no money is owed.The contract also states that mileage fees are only applicable if the mileage is over 2 hours which it is not .I am willing to pay the removal fee of $800. plus the discharge fee of $200.00 but the people I am dealing with will not accept my proposal and keep insisting on my payment of the installation and Mileage.
In order to get this resolved I am having to hire a lawyer.
Please. If you are or have been a customer of OEG than take the following steps to fight back.
1. Call them and give them a chance to make you a fair deal. (Spoiler alert.. not likely)
2. Make a complaint with the Ministry of Business and Consumer Services.
3. Contact the Better Business Bureau
4. Start a Small Claims Lawsuit! It's easier than you may think and only costs $102. Start by creating a Service Ontario Account. Complete the wizard and serve your plaintiffs claim.
5. Join the class action lawsuit by Harrison Pensa. Maybe we will win and you could get compensation!
Good luck everyone who has to go through this. If you do need to terminate the contract. Don't pay the inflated buyout price. Pay the cancellation fee, let them remove their equipment. You'll save a lot of money this way. New furnaces and air conditioners of similar quality only cost around 2k.

In 2013 a person came to my door representing OEG. He was selling air conditioning, furnaces and hot water...
I was deceived into signing up with Ontario Energy Group to take a new furnace and air conditioner. I am a senior living on a very limited budget, but the sales reps did a lot of posturing to give the impression that they are part of a government program. When I Googled them, the auto fill must have mistyped and it brought up Ontario Energy Board. I saw the legitimate government website.
Ultimately as I became more and more suspicious, I came to know that this company is hot on the consumer watch/complaint sites. However, I did not make the discovery until after the installations were completed and the 30 day 'cooling off' period had passed.
As things stand, my financial situation is forcing me to sell my house (I had told them as much at the outset) and they assured me that it would increase the equity in my home. The house has virtually no equity as it is and now I have to worry about how this exorbitantly priced contract will affect the sale. Additionally, OEG puts a lien on your home (which affectively makes selling it impossible) and OEG and Home Trust have each run credit checks on me without my knowledge or consent.
They are now demanding nearly $20, 000 to put the matter to rest and threatening me with a Notice of Security / Notice of Sale to exhort a payout. Based on Fraudulent Misrepresentation, outright lies and broken promises the Consumer Protection Act requires that the vendor cancel the contract without cost - which they should have done months ago. I have now submitted a statement to the Investigations Unit, Consumer Protection Branch, Ministry of Government & Consumer Services and am prepared to testify in court against OEG.
There are numerous issues, and looking at the internet reviews, there are many other people who have had less than satisfactory dealings with this organization. They are flat out misrepresenting their product, services and credentials.
Let's hope court actions hold these swindlers accountable (they have been charged and fined before). They need to be prosecuted or put out of business to protect the public.

Person came to our door saying that they do inspections because the laws for coolants have changed, and wanted to see the unit. I Google them and found out that they are misrepresenting themselves by implying that this inspection is mandatory, when they are in the business of selling furnaces and Ac units. I learned a lesson; Ask them to wait until you check them out.

They came to my door today and told me they were inspecting all air conditioners and furnaces to ensure they meet the new 2015 government standards and would replace them if necessary. I told them they were new and didn't need replacing. They insisted that the standards had changed and they needed to inspect everything whether they were new or not. I told them to get in touch with my landlord (I am the owner) and they immediately changed their tune and were quite polite other than telling me to get my landlord to get in touch with them to ensure the safety of my children...so, once they knew I couldn't authorize anything, they were polite and went on their way.
I have an older child at home that if you were to meet, you would know that she could not authorize any...
Sales person misrepresented the OEG relationship with Ontario Government, and with details of Bill C51, as well as being completely untruthful regarding the reasons for wanting to inspect our HVAC equipment. Aggressive, dishonest and ultimately rude. He was not granted access to our home, period.
Subsequent google search by me showed dubious credentials for this company.
