KSG Investigates Deregulated Energy Class Actions

Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is currently investigating claims for class action law suits against various energy service companies (ESCO). An ESCO is a commercial or non-profit business providing a broad range of energy solutions including design and implementation of energy saving projects. According to various complaints, these ESCOs promised customers competitive market-based rates and savings on their electric energy bills if they switch to their company. Despite these promises, the ESCO may end up charging the customer more than what he or she would had paid with the local electric company.

Many states have deregulated their energy markets allowing or ESCOs to operate there and offer energy services to citizens there. Those states include:

  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Illinois
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington, D.C.

What is particularly at issue in these cases are the contracts provided to consumers that offer variable rates that can fluctuate and increase rapidly. In turn, the consumers are left with energy services that cost more than traditional energy services despite the promises of savings made by the ESCOs.

KSG has filed lawsuits against the following electric service companies: Ambit, IDT, Stream, Starion and Viridian. Our firm is continuing to file lawsuits against these companies, and we are interested in learning about other ESCOs who may be committing similar unlawful practices.

If you or someone you know was promised savings by one of the aforementioned ESCOs or a company of its kind, but ended up paying more money than your traditional energy provider, please contact us to discuss your claim. All initial consultations are free of charge.
