As a new permanent resident in the USA from South Africa, I believed every advertisement and statement in the media. After receiving about 7 brochures from North American Power asking New Jersey residents ‘ HAVE YOU LOWERED YOUR ELECRTICITY RATE YET? ’ - I unfortunately responded in March ’12.
I am still receiving those black cards from North American Power stating their price to be 7.99c per kwh as from 1st October 2012 and their price NOT to change based on usage.
Well that is a lie and not the case, because on my December 2012 Account for ELECTRICITY:
- the present North American Power price for generation is 12.487c per kwh
- while now the Jersey Central Power and Light price is only 10.551c per kwh
On a fixed income this is a serious matter that deserves my immediate attention.
I have now learned my lesson and shall never again fall for any scam or claim that is actually to good to be true.
