New York Gas & Electric Investigation:
Wittels Law, P.C. is investigating numerous complaints from consumers regarding New York Gas & Electric’s potentially fraudulent business practices. These consumers were promised savings on their energy bills, but after switching to New York Gas & Electric 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 energy from New York Gas & Electric.
Upon investigation, evidence suggests that New York Gas & Electric may have lured customers into switching 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 New York Gas & Electric to recover overcharges and other damages.
