Jurich v Verde Energy USA, Inc.

Superior Court of Hartford Connecticut
Docket No. X07-HHDCV15-6060160-S
If you were enrolled in a Verde Energy USA, Inc. variable rate electricity plan in connection with a property located within Connecticut at any time from December 1, 2009 to October 31, 2015, this Settlement may affect your rights.  Please read the information carefully.

 A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that Defendant’s variable electricity rates in Connecticut were not, as it claimed in its contracts, based on “market” related factors, but instead were higher than prevailing market rates.  The Defendant has denied and continues to deny the allegations in the lawsuit.

• To settle the case, Defendant has agreed to pay each Settlement Class Member who submits a Valid Claim an amount equal to $0.0095 per Variable Kilowatt Hour consumed by the Claimant, as a customer of Defendant, during the period of December 1, 2009 through September 30, 2016.  The average cash Benefit will be approximately $3.15 for each month a Claimant was a customer of Verde.  Your average monthly Benefit may be smaller or larger depending upon your actual electricity consumption, but if a Claimant’s Calculated Payment totals less than $2.00, the Claimant will receive $2.00.  The total amount available to pay Benefits is $6,000,000.  The amount actually paid to each Claimant may be reduced depending upon the number of Claimants.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act.  Read the Notice carefully.
