New York Asks You To Report IDT Energy

The government is starting to listen to the mounting series of complaints about IDT Energy‘s sales rep’s tactics; Brooklyn Council Member Bill De Blasio is asking that you report the following if an ESCO comes to your door:

  • Name of the company
  • Name of the company they say they represent>
  • Badge number or employee name
  • Date and time
  • Details of what they said/did
  • Send the info to or call 718-766-8828. The info will be used to introduce a resolution before City Council and to work with the New York State Department of Public Service. “We must drive IDT Energy and Midtown Promotions out of New York. They are manipulating our residents in a time already wrought with economic hardship,” said Bill de Blasio in a statement, posted below.
