I also ask that you please elaborate upon your reference to the "fine print." When did you join and what was your experience? If you do not want to speak specifically, then please do so generally. Without some facts, your comments are not enlightening or helpful. I and others would appreciate your experiences. There are many criticisms of Viridian, but so far, none seem to withstand scrutiny.
Do you work for Viridian?

I am very confused about this company. Almost everything I have read talks about becoming an "employee". What are the benefits for CUSTOMERS? I have yet to hear anything that would even make me think about becoming a customer. It sounds like you have to be an "employee" to be a customer. It is all very confusing and that will chase me away every time. I want clear answers not smoke and mirrors.

This is starting to sound more and more like a pyramid scheme or Multi-Level Marketing as they call it. I don't think this will benefit anyone according to popular mechanics magazine, a reliable source, this is not renewable energy.

I want to hear from an actual Viridian Energy customer who does NOT work for the company or gets some type of bonus for selling their crap. I just need HONEST,UNBIASED ANSWERS NOW!!
If you haven't gotten your answer yet contact me off line normrosner@aol.com. Yes I am a Viridian associate www.usegreenelectricity.com and now have many unaffiliated customers who have received their bills for several months that would talk to you however PSE&G every month tells you your Viridian charge and what you would have paid had you not switched and of course electricity is electricity nothing changes no matter who the supplier except the cost per kWh and with aViridian the knowledge that you are lowering your carbon footprint so you can just look a copies of bills and the saveings run a few $$ to close to $100/month just depends on how much electricity you use. Personally I have 3 bills so far each showing savings but less than any of my customers I have asked -its just me and my wife and we both work so don't use that much but it does feel good to save.

Because they are, that's what Amway / Pyramid Schemes do they present you with "The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan" unfortunately Amway companies take advantage of people in a downed economy, they know people are looking for a work in a market that can't sustain employment for too long so they put together a full proof sales pitch based on two execs role playing with each other. I would like to see a Viridian rep at a town hall meeting pitching how they are going to save someone money without the sales pitch of being a viridian rep. I actually spoke to a rep the other day, to save his life he could not explain to me why there was a floating rate or why other reps could sign someone up at a lower rate than his. He also could not explain the fine print.

Most importantly he could not explain how Viridian uses renewable energy or what their process is for it. I have a Bach. Degree in Mechanical Eng. and even I can't figure out how they are creating reusuable energy. All this rep had on his mind was :

"The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan"

"The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan"

"The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan"

"The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan"

"The possibility" for financial freedom "but you have to follow the plan" "You can achieve your financial goal" "But you have to follow the plan"

Hello friends and neighbors...

Have you seen today's NJ Star Ledger. The newspaper's Corporate Giving Foundation has partnered with Viridian Energy's in its Fundraising efforts. Viridian Energy is a socially responsible company that offers customers the opportunity to empower their right to choose who provides their electricity. There are no contacts, no sign up fees, no obligation whatsoever. Currently Viridian is offering new customers an additional 10% off their first months bill, in addition to their already low rates. If you are receiving your electric supply from your regulated utility company, you are paying too much. That' OK if this is what you want to do. However, if you decide you'd like to save some money, keep your current utility for billing, service and maintenance and help the environment by sending green to the grid, then join more than 100,000 customers who've decided to support the world's sustainability efforts. Questions? http://faq.viridian.com/...

I'm a proud Viridian customer and independent consultant. I saved $11 on my bill last month by going green with Viridian. I'd be happy to show you a copy. You won't get what you want if you don't ask for it..Have a wonderful night.

$11.00 thats great now you only need $388.00 left to get back the money you paid out to work. Rule of thumb, if it costs you more than a tank of gas a week to go to work it's not a company you want to work for.

Attention Viridian Rep: You are aware that it is a Federal Offense to profit off someone's electric service even if it is by $0.01 per KHW, if I were you I would report your company to the FTC become a whistleblower, collect the reward for being a whistleblower and your fee of $399.00 "Investment Fee" to work, stop drinking their V-Cool-Aid and try something that IS legal and won't put a permanent scar on your record. If you don't believe me go to the FTC website, lookup utilities laws and see for your self. You pay plan consists of monthly commissions paid by your customers of 1-2 cents per kwh of usuage and the $20.00 spiff you get for everyone that you sign up again that's illegal because YOU ARE NOT A CERTIFIED NOR DO YOU HAVE A C.O. TO PROVIDE, PRODUCE, DISTRUBUTE OR GENERATE ENERGY. Which mind you is regulated by the Energy Consoule of this country. All that you have is a piece of paper that titles you as an "Energy Consultant" which in real terms does not exist. You have to earn a Bach in Science and a Master's in lifecycle of energy and quantam physics to become an engineer of energy first. You are playing with something that you truly don't know much about and it will come back to bite you. The FTC monitors and looks for companies like the one you are promoting, once there are enough complaints against Viridian which they are starting to already the will investigate you--- CUT YOUR LOSSES NOW, GET OUT!! It is easy fror them to paint you a pretty picture where everything is sun shine and rainbows, well it's not. MLM companies always try to take shortcuts and in the end it only hurts those that don't know much or aren't aware of the real facts. Also because you are an independant rep you have to pay taxes on your profits and spiffs I'm sure they said nothing about that to you. IRS is cracking down on everyone, you have to file a 1099 for what you are doing you just can't go under the radar and when tax time comes there are no tax codes for profits from electricity service, good luck with that explination.

Sue, you would be wise to switch - though you may only save a little each month, that's more in YOUR pocket with no obligation or risk.:) AND you'll be supporting renewable wind energy!

These guys on this board are a few paranoid, tinfoil-hat types, that get off on bashing others' positivity. They operate on rumor, hearsay, spin and opinion - NOT facts.

Call the corporate number with questions, check out the various sites, and talk to a Viridian associate. Congrats on your decision to take action, to help yourself, help the planet and support your Viridian friends.

you are not selling wind energy, you are selling credits that JCP&L Sells you at a lower rate and you resell it to other telling them it's green energy. Electricity is electricity- can you please provide us with Viridian's Corporate Address and the actual location fo your wind farms, how many wind generators you have and how much OhmS they are putting out per second of "Renewable energy". Where do the wind farms power lines to and who services your wind farm.

Also please explain how Viridian is associate with Glacial a company that was fined for their Version of Renewable Energy which turn out to be a scam Folks Google Renewable Energy Scam and see what you get.

Also google Glacial Energy they are asscociated with Viridian.
Finally what is your lic. number to distribute, sell and consult on Energy.

P.S. I have a Degree in Mechanical Engineering, I think I have earned the right to question you. Maybe you should start coming clean with people here before it bites you in the rear.

It really bothers me that I went to school for 6 years, had to pay off student loans of close to 80k but here you take a trip to Atlantic City pay $400.00 and BAM! your an energy consultant, years ago you had to go to school take tests and continuing education coarses, renew bd of utilities license every year to talk about this.

Maybe I will go to Atlantic City pay $700 and become a Doctor or a lawyer hey maybe even a Neurologist so that I can exam your heads and find the little hamster running on a wheel generating your renewable energy. BOTTOM LINE STOP SCAMING PEOPLE OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY NOW OR I WILL REPORT YOU TO THE FTC WHO HAPPENS TO BE HIGHER THAN THE BD OF UTILITIES!!!! IT IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE TO PROFIT FROM ANYONE'S ELECTRIC SUPPLY, DELIVERY, USE AND RETURN. YOU ARE COMMITNG FRAUD AND IT IS ILLEGAL!!!!! LOOK IT UP IN BD OF UTILITIES CODE BOOK IDIOTS!
