Quantum Legal is currently investigating a case regarding the potentially inflated rates and conduct in pricing of electricity purchased through several companies: If you purchase electricity from any of the following companies: AEP Energy, Agera Energy, Ambit, Constellation Energy, Dynegy Energy Services, Entrust, IDT Energy, Illinois Gas & Electric, Liberty Power, Mid-American Energy, North American Power, Palmco, Spark Energy, or Viridian Energy
These companies are known as "Alternative Retail Electric Suppliers" (ALREC) in Illinois.
Through the "Plug In" Illinois program, consumers have been free to switch to an ALREC seller and purchase electricity on market set rates instead of the rates approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission on a regulated basis. Many of the ALREC sellers offer a first year fixed cost agreement that renews into a fluctuating price that we believe might be an inaccurate representation of actual market prices. If you have purchased electricity from any of these companies, we would like to speak with you about your experience so please contact us.
