Have You Been Targeted By a Private Energy Company?
We Want to Hear From You.
In communities across Massachusetts like East Boston and Chelsea, residents have been targeted by competitive (or “third-party”) electricity suppliers. Using deceptive tactics, these companies will go door to door or directly call residents, promising to lower your electricity bill if the household switches their supplier.
Research conducted by the office of the State Attorney General Maura Healey has found that residents who switch pay more on average than if they stayed with their utility company. These predatory practices are discriminatory and illegal. They must end.
GreenRoots, ACE and Lawyers for Civil Rights are partnering to advocate for an end to these deceptive tactics. We want to hear from community members who have had direct experience with these companies and who can share their stories about what they were promised and what truly happened.
