Energy Supplier Clean Currents Ceases Operations

Options Available for PGAMA Members

Metromedia Energy LogoOn January 31, 2014 Clean Currents Green Energy Solutions, headquartered in Silver Spring, MD, announced that they have exited the retail electricity market place. All customers will be transferred back to utility default service effective immediately. With the recent jump in wholesale electric prices due to the extreme weather this winter, Clean Currents was unable to meet contract-pricing obligations in place with existing customers.

The extreme weather has forced utility default rates higher but there are still savings opportunities available with energy suppliers structured to sustain sudden uptakes in the energy markets.

PGAMA partner Metromedia Energy Inc is available to help members identify solutions through their Power Shop pricing program. Please contact Tom Gussen by phone at (732) 440-0031 or by email at tjgussen@mmenergy.com to discuss your energy supplier options today.
