However, in our experience, this never materialised. For the individuals we have assisted we have found that the above representations were completely false and the solar panels were never suitable to start with.
Whilst the solar panels cost several thousands of pounds, our clients were told not to worry. They were told that they could take out finance with one of a number of banks and that the money they saved on their energy bills would more than cover the monthly repayments.
Again, however, in our experience this never materialised. Our clients have found that the income generated through the “Feed-In Tariff” is often substantially and significantly lower than what they were promised by the solar panel agent at the time of the sale.
In the cases we have dealt with, clients have had to top up monthly repayments out of their own savings. This can, in some cases, have a serious financial implication for our clients.
We have been instructed by several clients who have advised us that they were misled into purchasing solar panels using a finance agreement (or part funded by way of a credit card). They were told that the solar panels would be an investment, that the solar panels would pay for themselves, and in some cases that if the solar panels produced a surplus amount of electricity that they could then sell the surplus electricity.
They were often told that any savings they made would more than cover their monthly finance repayments and that there was nothing to lose. Unfortunately, this never happened and clients are now faced with crippling finance repayments and broken promises.
In our opinion, if you have paid for solar panels using a finance agreement or credit card, and were advised that your solar panels would either generate a surplus amount of electricity; result in you reducing your energy bills and that the saving would cover the monthly finance repayments, you may have claim if, in reality, none of the above was true. In such a case, we may be able to bring a claim on your behalf for damages.

If you have purchased solar panels using a method of credit in the last six years, our experienced team of solicitors can help you recover compensation for any losses that you may have suffered.
This compensation can cover include:
We are fully aware of the aggressive sales techniques and the various misrepresentations (about the system and the benefits of having solar panels) told to individuals to coerce them into buying the solar panels and taking out finance to fund the purchase.
Unfortunately, having taken out finance to fund the solar panels, clients often find the finance repayments outweigh any savings and/or benefits that they received because of the solar panels.
Claim Experts may be able to assist you in obtaining compensation if:
A few of the solar panel companies in question have been dissolved in the past 12 months. This is due to the ongoing coverage of the practices of these firms and the mis-selling involved. So, many of the companies who have been carrying out these practices are no longer trading.
However, Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act protects consumers who have purchased items costing over £100 using a finance agreement or credit card. If you have used a finance agreement or a credit card to purchase the solar panels (including paying a deposit) then Claim Experts would be able to bring a claim against the finance provider or the credit company for any damages that you have suffered because of any misrepresentation made by the sales company (even if they have ceased trading).
