Case Name

Gruber v. Starion, Inc.,
Case No. X03-HHD-CV-17- 6075408-S.
Connecticut Superior Court, Judicial District of Hartford

Case Summary

The lawsuit alleges that Starion falsely claimed in its contracts with customers that its variable rate for electricity supply services would “reflect” the “cost of electricity” that Starion “obtained from all sources,” which Plaintiff alleges constituted a representation that Starion’s price for variable rate electricity would fluctuate in accord with Starion’s cost of procuring that electricity. Plaintiff further alleges that, contrary to this representation, Starion in practice failed to decrease its variable rate when wholesale market rates went down. The lawsuit further alleges that Starion’s variable rate customers suffered monetary damages as a result of this alleged misconduct.

Starion denies all of Plaintiff’s claims and says that it did nothing wrong. Starion specifically states that it followed all terms of its contracts with customers, and that Plaintiff’s claims are without factual or legal merit.

    This Rebate Claim is for my personal claim for my condo. However, as President of the Condo Association I signed up the 5241 N. East River Road Condo Association for the same service. Therefore, I should be receiving a postcard with separate Claim ID and PIIN Codes. The addresses are the same and are two (2) separate accounts, with the same mailing address. Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Patricia,

    Send a certified letter to the admin with this info.

    I hate these third party power providers.
    They call you up, or knock on your door. Saying that they can save you money on electricity and gas. They just need some kind of numbers from you electric bill to see how much you can save.
    But they won’t tell you how much you can save until they get the numbers.
    Because without you knowing, they switched your provider to them.
    You may save money with them in the first couple months. But then, you price will all the sudden triple or more of what your original provider charged.

  10. carol reddick says:

    I’m a senior citizen and I don’t know if I qualify for this.

    ADMIN – Hi Carol,

    I don’t think your age hinders you from being a class member.


    I had a variable rate for two months and than switched to a fix rate. because I did not believe their claim that
    the variable rate would never exceed the rate of Duquesne light.
