Viridian Energy Rates

February 2017: A Consolidated Class Action Complaint, which consolidates three cases, was filed. According to the complaint, Viridian Energy deceptively advertises low initial rates for energy followed by variable rate plans that are tied to the market rate when, according to plaintiffs, customers end up paying four, five, or six times more for their energy.

April 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Viridian Energy for allegedly deceptively enticing customers to switch their energy supplier by offering “teaser rates” (i.e., low initial rates) for electricity followed by a “variable rate” that is tied to the market rate when, in reality, the company routinely charges customers four or five times the underlying market rate after the “teaser rate” expires. (Steketee et al v. Viridian Energy, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-585, D. CT.)
