Harris County Attorney Christian D. Menefee’s Statement on Attorney General’s Lawsuit Against Griddy
Harris County Attorney Christian D. Menefee gave the following statement on the lawsuit the Attorney General of Texas filed today against energy provider Griddy:
“I am glad to see today the Attorney General sued Griddy for its deceptive practices and its charging Texans, including Harris County residents, excessive electricity rates during Winter Storm Uri. This is but a first step to hold companies accountable for the suffering Texans experienced during and after the power grid failure. I am proud of my office’s efforts to protect Harris County residents from deceptive business practices—our county is leading the state on addressing the important issue of price gouging. Tomorrow, I am heading to Austin to testify before the Texas House’s Business and Industry Committee about changes they can make to the law to enable my office and other local governments to be more involved in the fight for consumer protection.
