Frequently Asked Questions

Can I legally sue now for financial damages that I have yet to realize?

Yes. Most states’ consumer protection laws specifically allow for and provide relief by allowing a plaintiff to sue and recover future yet still unrealized financial losses for which they have a reasonable expectation to suffer or incur in the future.

Why should I bother to initiate legal action now rather than later?

All states have a civil statute of limitations law requiring a plaintiff (or retained attorney) to file suit within a prescribed time period from the causative event date (typically 3 to 5 years). Given the high probability that many, if not most, solar panel installation companies may no longer be in business in 20 or 30 years, it is imperative for you to take legal action NOW to recover these unintended costs before this period expires.

I am now strapped for money. How much will it cost me to initiate a claim against my contractor?

As contingency fee-based law firms, Energy Mitigation Associates and our network of experienced trial attorneys require no up-front money or retainer from our clients. We assume the full cost of litigation. Should your case be settled or adjudicated in your favor, then, and only then, do we earn and collect our contingency fee and filing costs from the settlement. We assume all the risk of your case.

What are the Next Steps?

Contact us immediately so that we can initially review the basic details and facts surrounding your solar panel installation.

Provide us with details regarding your solar system installation, such as installation date and misrepresentations of items omitted from the installation contract, sales presentations, and the statement of financial and energy savings.

Let us determine if your case merits further investigation based on the information you provide in the second step.

If we believe that sufficient damages may be potentially awarded to you, then we will conduct, at no cost to you, a free and comprehensive financial analysis and assessment in order to realistically calculate the financial value of your case based on its collective merits.

Let us then know if you want to proceed with litigation.

It would be great to work in an industry that is self-policing and largely above any major ethical breaches. While most solar dealers are good people, driven by ideals of a better world, there are shady solar companies out there, and you need to stay away from them. Why is it so important in this […]
Julnor Jean, 82, installed solar panels on his home in Miami-Dade through a program called PACE. While it allows people to make improvements regardless of income, which Jean had little of, it can also leave homeowners in a big financial hole.

The Campaign for Accountability (CfA) year-long investigation into the solar industry has revealed the exploitation of vulnerable populations that prey on the elderly and those on fixed-incomes, misleading consumers about installation costs, providing shoddy craftsmanship and higher utility costs, and unconscionable contracts that leave little possibility of recourse. Executive Summary Installing rooftop solar panels should […]
