Plymouth Rock Energy Investigation:
Wittels Law, P.C. is investigating numerous complaints from consumers regarding Plymouth Rock Energy’s potentially fraudulent business practices. These consumers were promised savings on their energy bills, but after switching to Plymouth Rock Energy 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 Plymouth Rock’s energy.
Upon investigation, evidence suggests that Plymouth Rock Energy may have lured customers into switching to Plymouth Rock 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 Plymouth Rock Energy to recover overcharges and other damages.
Recently, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission approved a settlement requiring Plymouth Rock to pay a civil penalty of $98,683 to refund over 1,700 customers who were overcharged when Plymouth Rock billed them at rates that were higher than the rates they were promised. These customers were enrolled in a fixed-rate program with Plymouth Rock, but were billed at a rate which exceeded the rate that was disclosed in their contracts.
