How did this happen?
During the period 2012-2015 Government incentives for green energy resulted in the solar industry expanding rapidly. New installers started up every day desperate to gain some of the action. These installers grew and gained market share often by forecasting unrealistic returns and using other mis-selling techniques. As panel prices reduced, the incentives were slashed and the industry collapsed almost overnight, after installing 800,000 systems.
Many consumers who bought solar panels from the companies listed below (which have all now ceased trading) may feel that they have been mis-sold their solar panels. If you bought a system from any of these companies, or any other where you felt pressured into buying a solar pv system then please call us:
Some consumers have never received the appropriate paperwork with which to register their systems for FITs payments, while others received it too late to register for the best tariffs.
Sales representatives are paid by results; in the case of solar sales they only got paid when they sold, there was no salary otherwise. This put them under tremendous pressure to close deals; they were given literature and were trained how to use it efficiently to get the contract signed. The companies above showed financial benefits that were unobtainable but the presentations were slick and often it was impossible to check the results. For example, the purchasers watched the presentations on the sales person’s laptop thus leaving them with no information after the sale was completed.
The telesales teams often targeted people who were around retirement age and on signing up the deal the clients had solar panel systems that they were unlikely ever to see any financial benefit during their lifetime.
Gamekeeper turned Poacher scenario
We understand that many consumers who have bought solar panels, in particular from the companies listed above, have been subjected to “cold calls” and mailshots from “claims companies” that seem to know that they have bought a solar panel system, and from whom.
If you receive any form of contact from a company such as this, then please ignore such communication, and if you do feel that you want to make a claim contact a solicitor, such as us. Solicitors are regulated by the SRA, and they do not “cold call” members of the public, or buy databases.
In addition, the work that a solicitor will undertake on your behalf is likely to be more thorough and professional, than that of some of the claims management companies, who may adopt a “one size fits all” approach when filing claims.
Has this happened to you?
Our Lawyers at Lincoln Green have helped many people in these situations. If you answer yes to any of the questions below we may be able to help you too.
• Are unhappy with the performance of your solar panels?
• Were you led to believe the solar panels would be self-funding when they are not?
• Did you purchase the solar panel with a loan in part or on credit card?
• Have you made a previous claim that has been rejected by the lender?
Many of these solar PV systems and their ancillary products have been sold on finance where principally, Barclays Partner Finance, Shawbrook Bank, Hitachi Capital or Creation Consumer Finance were the lenders, and involve consumers often repaying loans between 10 – 15 years.
