Via press release from Texas AG Ken Paxton:
Griddy passed skyrocketing energy costs to customers with little to no warning, resulting in consumers paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars each day for electricity. Griddy misled Texans and signed them up for services which, in a time of crisis, resulted in individual Texans each losing thousands of dollars.
As Texans struggled to survive this winter storm, Griddy made the suffering even worse as it debited outrageous amounts each day.
As the first lawsuit filed by my office to confront the outrageous failure of power companies, I will hold Griddy accountable for their escalation of this winter storm disaster. My office will not allow Texans to be deceived or exploited by unlawful behavior and deceptive business practices.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against Griddy, LLC for charging huge energy bills to customers during the winter storm.https://t.co/hc6cYwknxJ
