Griddy customers upset over electricity prices during recent heat wave

HOUSTON – Griddy customers are upset over high energy bills, and they're letting the electric company know about it.

Over the past few days, customers said they've paid hundreds of dollars' worth of electric bills.

What customers are saying

David Brooks has been with Griddy for eight days. He said he was told he would save money with the company.

“We’ve been with Griddy for eight days. In eight days, we have been charged over $350. We've been charged by Griddy so much that today my credit union stopped Griddy from being able to charge my account," Brooks said.

Brooks, like many of Griddy’s customers, was forced to turn off his air conditioner to try and conserve energy or risk another big bill.

"It's a little warm in here. We were 97 degrees outside today. We had, like, 104 feels-like temperatures," Brooks said.
