MIS-SOLD SOLAR PANEL CLAIMS
Our team are experts at claiming compensation for those who were misled into purchasing solar panels. We may even be able to pursue a claim if the company who sold you the panels has gone out of business.
If you think you may have been mis-sold solar panels, please get in touch with BeeLegal Solicitors’ financial mis-selling team today. We may be able to get you compensation and if you bought the panels under a finance agreement, get the outstanding finance written off.
For a number of years, companies have been advising that buying a solar power system for your home was a fantastic way to save and also earn money from the surplus electricity the system would be generating. This extra electricity could be sold to the national grid for a guaranteed amount, a ‘feed in tariff’.
However, many companies were mis-selling solar panels by misleading customers about how much income and savings they would make. This may have included an exaggeration of the amount of electricity generated or how much their electricity bills would reduce by.
Worse still, many people used finance or credit to purchase the systems and have been left with expensive monthly payments on top of still having to pay for their electricity.
We were lied to... simple as that. BeeLegal quickly got to work and ensured that we recovered what was rightfully ours....
Were my solar panels mis-sold?
If you’re among the lucky few whose solar panels have met all the promises made by the installers, then it’s highly unlikely that your panels were mis-sold.
However, it has been estimated by sources including consumer rights group Which? that around 75% of solar panels were mis-sold, for the following reasons:
Promises were made that the solar panels would generate far more electricity than has actually been the case
Promises were made that you would receive far more generous ‘feed in tariff’ payments than has been the case
Promises made that your solar panels would pay for themselves in a matter of a few years have proven to be untrue
What sort of solar panel compensation can I claim?
The amount of money that you may be owed depends on a number of factors, such as the cost of your solar panel system, and the degree of disparity between the promises made by the installers and the financial reality.
However, even where the company that sold you the system is no longer trading, we may be able to start a compensation claim to recover a significant part of the money you’ve paid for the system, plus interest.
Just as importantly, where we can prove that your system was mis-sold due to misleading claims or even high-pressure sales techniques, we may be able to have any future finance payments written off on your behalf.
If you were misled by the company that sold and installed your solar panels and feel that their exaggerated claims have left you out of pocket, speak to us today.
