Customers tend not to take it all to well when a variable rate changes for the worse. So much so in fact, sometimes a class action lawsuit is filed over such circumstances. An example of a recent case that illustrates such rate changes is the recently settled Edwards v. North American Power & Gas, LLC. The suit was filed over allegations the Defendant charged customers variable rates that had no basis in market related factors or prevailing market rates as claimed in its consumer contracts. However, the Defendant disagrees with the allegations and denies each and every one maintaining that rates were adequately disclosed and reasonably related to relevant electricity and gas service markets. With all of that being said, which party would have prevailed in a court of law likely will never be known due to the previously mentioned pending settlement valued at an awe-inducing $16,053,000. Those who believe they are eligible to receive a taste of this massive settlement fund can begin by going to the Electricity and Gas Settlement page and clicking the Submit Claim button.
