Ethical Electric Charges excessive rates without disclosure after 3 months. Washington District of Columbia
*General Comment: Ethical Electric seems misrepresented by Ripoff Report
*Author of original report: Big gas syndicate scam on wind energy
Ethical Electric sells their scam by quoting all wind and solar power for aproximately the same price as "dirty" electricity. After 3 months they charge very high, about double normal, rates. No disclosure is available on their current rates. Customers trying to do the right thing and believing false advertising, sigh on with a contract which allows Ethical to raise prices to an undisclosed amount after 3 months. Ethical advertises that their energy costs almost the same as regular sources. Mine started at 11 cents per kilowatt hour and was raised to 20 cents per kilowatt hour after 3 months. BG&E, my regular supplier charges about 10 cents.
Tom Matzzie is their founder and uses his reputation with moveon.org to gain confidence of customers.
If customers don't catch it - and most don't, they pay into a highly profitable scam.
In my case they paid back excess charges only after I complained to the BBB. The BBB dismissed my complaint because they figure I was paid back. They are allowing thousands more to be scammed.
