All residential and commercial users of electric generation service from Duke Energy Corp. and/or Cinergy Corp. from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2008 are eligible for a rebate under a class action effectuated in the case Williams v. Duke Energy. For residential users, the rebate will range from $40 to $400. For commercial users the rebate is unlimited in size.
As described to me by one of the attorneys for the Plaintiffs, the settlement — nearly $81 million in all — means “real money,” especially for larger commercial users. Your business should not miss this opportunity, and it is even worthwhile for residential users to avail themselves of this windfall.
- However, in order to obtain a refund, consumers must complete and submit a form on-line or on paper by April 13, 2016.
The on-line form is quick and simple. It should take fewer than five minutes to complete. We strongly recommend that all of our eligible clients log onto http://dukeclassaction.com and complete the form. I just did it for my own residence, and it was super-quick and super-simple.
