Many UK residents have purchased similar solar panel systems. They were told it would generate income after it paid off the loan they took out to purchase them. However, many people have not received the promised returns and are now left scratching their heads.
These solar panel companies often use high-pressure tactics and confusing figures to convince people into purchasing the systems. After they purchase the system, using a finance agreement, they are left with solar panels that aren’t performing, and a huge amount of debt.

DHS Renewables were a Bournemouth-based solar panel company selling solar panel PV systems. Their single, one-star review on Yell.com states:
Under no circumstances employ these people. They take money for work they can’t do. They don’t refund. Avoid at all costs.
They also ran into trouble with Renewable Energy Consumer Code in 2017 after refusing to refund a customer after they cancelled within the cancelation period.
Like many of the solar panel companies, DHS Renewables have dissolved in the past 12 months. This is due to the ongoing coverage of the practices of these firms and the mis-selling involved.
However, Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act protects consumers who have purchased items costing over £100 using a finance agreement or credit card. This means if you have used a finance agreement to purchase the solar panels, Claims Experts can still bring a claim against the finance provider if there has been mis-selling.
