I signed up on 15-FEB-2014 (providing all required information and Social Security Numbrer) and received a confirmation and an Account #679050948  from DirectEnergy.com for “Price Advantage Plan 3” for 6.8 cents per KWH for 3 months.

However, I received a subsequent email (see below) from DirectEnergy on 6-MAR-2014 (see below) that there was a problem, and when I called Direct Energy at the recommended number (e.g.  1-877-653-3346), they now tell me that the price is 9.7 cents per KWH.

As a result, 3 weeks passed, and my current electricity contract expired, and the rate was increased drastically (because that is what most (if not all) electricity providers do if you don't get a new contract before it ends).
