A hearing with alternative energy providers will be held by the state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority in the coming weeks. PURA held hearings across the state, including in Brookfield, to learn from consumers about their experiences with alternate electric suppliers and skyrocketing bills.
PURA Chairman Michael Caron previously said the number of complaints has more than doubled from a year ago.
Consumer Counsel Elin Katz said previously that complaints from frustrated customers have been pouring in--some saying the companies are using low introductory rates to attract customers and then switching to variable rates without telling them.
The State Attorney General is also looking into the issue.
