March 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Verde Energy USA, Inc. for allegedly deceptively inducing consumers to switch their electricity supplier. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that the company offers low initial rates for electricity (i.e., a “teaser rate”) and “variable rates” that are tied to the market rate when, in reality, the company routinely charges consumers almost four times the market rate after the “teaser rate” expires. (Roberts et al v. Verde Energy USA, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-00312, D. CT.).
