Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca, LLP has filed lawsuits against third party energy suppliers Ambit Energy, LLC, Viridian Energy, LLC, Smart One Energy, LLC, HIKO Energy, LLC, and XOOM Energy, LLC in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.

The complaints allege that the Defendants engage in deceptive bait-and-switch sales models with variable rate customers. These companies represent to potential customers that if they switch from their local utility companies or other energy suppliers, they will receive low introductory rates on their energy bills followed by competitive market based rates and savings. However, shortly after consumers switch their energy supply, their electric and gas rates actually increase, causing substantially higher energy bills.

If you have switched to a third party energy provider with the promise of energy cost savings, only to have the price you pay for electricity or gas increase substantially, please contact attorneys Charles LaDuca at (202) 789-3960, or by email at
