For those who have already opted-out, can they send a certified letter to the power company saying, “I do not want an opt-out any longer?” In my group, the power company sent a letter saying, “everyone who sent the NoL will be automatically opted-out.” So, many of those folks did not choose to be opted-out, they were forced to opt-out.

Again, each situation is different. The opt-out is in many places, so there are certain things seen over and over. Number one, there is always a commission and maybe a co-op, but the commission is corrupt. It is trying to get you into a mini-contract, where you are part of a program, but they don’t tell you the other steps of the program. So, if you stay out of the program, that is the best position. In your case, those who got the opt out, did so, not knowing, the company failed to give them full disclosure. Therefore, they can nullify the contract, using a letter of “acceptance under duress”, or an “opt-out under duress” letter.
