Stream Energy PA Settlement Notes
- Steven Basile v. Stream Energy Pennsylvania LLC, et al.
- Case No. 1:15-cv-01518-YK
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania
In June 205, plaintiff Steven Basile filed this class action lawsuit alleging Stream Energy deceptively causes its customer to pay more for energy than they should have. Specifically, Basile claims that Stream Energy’s action and omissions in connection with its energy supply activities constitute a breach of contract.
On June 1, 2011 Basile signed up to receive electric supply service from Stream Energy. He was initially placed on a fixed rate contract for a one-year period. His contract was renewed on May 3, 2012 with a 12-month fixed rate. However, Basile did not receive notice from Stream Energy that his contract term was about to expire and that he was about to be placed in a variable rate plan. When he was placed in a variable rate plan, he was consistently overcharged well above market rates for electricity – in excess of 50% more than he would have been paying had he been receiving service from PECO, his legacy utility. Basile says he never would have enrolled in Stream Energy’s program but for the company’s promises of savings and competitive rates.
Stream Energy denies the allegations. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Stream Energy settlement website.
