KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Our consumer protection attorneys represent consumers defrauded by electricity supply companies in energy service company (ESCO) class actions. After many states deregulated their electricity supply industries, new electricity suppliers began to compete for traditional energy suppliers’ business. A large number of these energy service companies (ESCO) falsely promised competitive, market-based, but have failed to deliver on that promise.
Instead of receiving the energy rates as promised, many consumers receive variable rate contracts that result in exorbitant overcharges. Verde is only one of the many deregulated companies that have been sued for these deceptive practices.
If you are or were a Verde Energy Customer in MA, NJ, IL, OH, NY, or PA, and were promised competitive market-based variable rates, low-cost power, and/or additional savings, which didn’t transpire, please contact us. You may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit.
