Liberty Power Holdings Investigation:
Wittels Law, P.C. is investigating numerous complaints from consumers regarding Liberty Power Holdings’ potentially fraudulent business practices. These consumers were promised savings on their energy bills, but after switching to Liberty Power Holdings their rates were higher than their local utilities’ rates, in some cases doubling. Consumers allege that had they been made aware of the company’s true intention to raise rates, they never would have purchased Liberty’s energy.
Upon investigation, evidence suggests that Liberty Power Holdings may have lured customers into switching to Liberty with promises of significant savings, only to increase its rates well beyond market rates. These rate increases may have been implemented by enrolling customers into higher-cost plans without their consent or knowledge. Wittels Law has already filed class actions against other energy companies that have engaged in these deceptive practices, and may file similar lawsuits on behalf of customers of Liberty Power Holdings to recover overcharges and other damages.
Recently, the Connecticut Office of Consumer Counsel (OCC) requested that the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority direct Liberty to cease door-to-door sales and telemarketing to residential consumers, and to notify its existing Connecticut customers of Liberty’s rates and the standard rate consumers would otherwise be paying their local utility or electric distribution company (EDC). The OCC alleges that Liberty’s telemarketing agents and door-to door field agents represent themselves to consumers as being from a utility company, and imply that consumers could avoid high rates on their existing utility bills by using Liberty as their energy supplier. The end result is the misconception among consumers that Liberty is working with or on behalf of EDCs, and that consumers could obtain substantial savings by switching to Liberty.
