This company is an ESCO, and, like many others in the de-regulated New York City market, they send solicitors door to door to pester people to sign up for their service. They promise a lower rate for electricity supply than the variable market rate normally provided by ConEdison.
One day, a young man approached me as I was exiting my apartment (he wouldn't let me pass him in the narrow hallway without listening to his pitch...should have been a sign that it was a scam, but I was in a good mood that day and wanted to barrage him with questions about energy, which he obligingly answered). He told me explicitly that he was offering to sign me up for a fixed rate of $0.105/kWh (which is roughly the same as average of the variable rate provided by ConEd). When I received my first bill, the rate exceeded $0.15/kWh. I was also told explicitly that by signing with their ESCO, I would be eliminating from my electic bill various other small charges related to supply and delivery. Upon comparing prior bills and current, no such charges were eliminated or even reduced.
This company cons people into signing contracts for more expensive energy supply than they already have, and offers nothing in return - not higher quality energy, or more socially or environmentally friendly energy - just hassle.
