March 29, 2018- Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C., has filed a class action law suit against Verde Energy representing customers in Illinois.Verde Energy is a deregulated energy service company that sells electricity in several states, including Illinois.
Energy Bills Too High
In the class action complaint, it was alleged that Verde Energy overcharged Plaintiff and other customers for their electricity. Intentionally, customers were led to believe their energy rates would be lower if they switched to Verde Energy. Upon service, it was discovered that their rates did not lower, but actually rose significantly. Verde Energy claimed that their variable rates would be based on market-based conditions.
Similar to the previous case filed, Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is attempting to recover compensation back to the customers for the overcharging. Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. has also filed a class action law suit against Verde Energy in New Jersey.
