With more people seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and “go green” these days, many New Mexicans are beginning to consider the use of solar paneling on their homes. It can be a great way to save money on your electric bills while helping the environment. Solar companies offer a variety of ways to finance the installation of solar panels and use of solar energy in people’s homes, but they often come with stacks of paperwork, lengthy agreements, and confusing rates or jargon. In addition, sales representatives can be pushy and deceitful in their practices to get you to sign documents without fully disclosing all the conditions of the solar system. This has left some consumers to be locked into agreements that do not deliver the low electric bills, high tax credits, or the “free” solar panels they may have been promised. Some even find themselves buried in rising electric bills or questioning whether they have a defective solar panel system that does not produce what it should.
If you have found yourself in a complex agreement that has become stressful and costly, but the solar company is giving you the run-around, you may have been the victim of “solar fraud” or unfair business practices in the sale, lease, or installation of solar panels. If you believe you have been a victim of solar fraud and purchased or leased a solar panel that does not live up to its promises, we are here to help.
