Ask Your Legislators to pass HB 7155 with strong protections to stop residential third-party electric supplier abuses!

 

After nearly two decades of implementing legislative and regulatory policies meant to protect ratepayers, it is time to tell third-party electric suppliers that this is their last chance.  Their often abusive, and at times illegal, marketing tactics will no longer be tolerated.

Third-party electric suppliers are allowed to auto renew you as a customer when your contract expires without your affirmative consent. 

The terms of this auto-renewed contract almost always has higher rates than the standard offer from the utilities.   

This is why it is critical HB 7155, An Act Concerning Consumer Protections for Customers of Electric Suppliers, retains the language voted out of committee that requires ratepayers to affirmatively consent to new contract terms before it is valid.

Please take a moment to urge your legislators to protect ratepayers and ensure you will not be automatically renewed into a contract that costs you more than the standard service.

Dear [Decision Maker],

After nearly two decades of implementing legislative and regulatory policies meant to protect ratepayers, it is time to tell third-party electric suppliers that this is their last chance. Their often abusive, and at times illegal, marketing tactics will no longer be tolerated.



It is clear to me that without the strong consumer protection language currently in HB 7155, the market will not work. Please look out for ratepayers and ensure that I will not be automatically renewed into a contract that costs me more than the standard service.

Sincerely,
