SGT is investigating whether solar energy company Vision Solar and its partners Sunlight Financial and Technology Credit Union unfairly and deceptively induced individuals to take out home improvement loans to install solar panel systems despite Vision Solar not having permission to connect to the systems to the power grid.
Vision Solar allegedly promised customers thousands of dollars in savings over the lifetime of solar panels if they took out a loan via their partner--Sunlight Financial--to finance the installation of a solar panel system by Vision Solar. Vision Solar made these promises despite the fact that Vision Solar had not, and knew it had not, obtained the permits from local authorities necessary to connect solar panel power systems to the power grid. As a result, Vision Solar's customers' systems have not functioned and have not saved them any money at all. Despite this, individuals have been forced to make payments on their loans.
Vision Solar's behavior was the subject of a news report earlier this year, which can be found here.
SGT believes Vision Solar's activities may constitute unfair or deceptive business practices in violation of the consumer protection laws of several states. If you had solar panels installed by Vision Solar which were not connected to the power grid at the time of installation and believe you have been financially harmed as a result, contact SGT Partner Ian W.
