Remember when Mayor William Hallenbeck announced with great fanfare that Hudson was to be "the only municipality statewide to be exclusively powered by wind energy" and called on other municipalities to follow Hudson's lead? The transition to wind energy was expected to save the City $40,000 a year. And remember when it was discovered that the mayor's bold initiative, far from saving the City $40,000, had increased the City's electricity costs by $113,782 in the first year?
That fiasco was brought to us by Viridian Energy LLC. Today, the following story was being reported about Viridian in Massachusetts: "Electricity Supplier to Pay $5 Million to Settle Claims of Deceptive Sales Tactics and Overcharging Customers."
