Agway Energy Services
December 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Agway Energy Services for allegedly using a “bait-and-switch scheme” to lure consumers to switch to its electricity supply service. According to the complaint, the company advertises initial teaser rates for a limited period of time followed by market variable rates when, according to plaintiffs, the variable rates are not connected to market rates and are “substantially higher” than competitors’ rates resulting in customers paying more for electricity. (Gonzales et al v. Agway Energy Services, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-1754, D. Del.)
