Before they were liquidated, MyPlanet used high-pressure sales tactics in order to sell their solar panels across the UK. Many people have been left out of pocket after being promised the solar panels were “self-funding”.
Every day, Claim Experts receive enquiries from people from all over the country asking for help after the mis-selling of MyPlanet solar panels. For those who we have helped, we have found the promises MyPlanet made never materialised, leaving them with underperforming solar panels and a debt which they are unable to pay off.
If you believe you have been mis-sold solar panels by MyPlanet, our expert panel of solicitors can help you potentially claim your initial investment back, wiping out any debt from the purchase, and even fund the removal of the solar panels. Get in touch today to see how we can help.
My Planet Solar Limited were a company who sold solar panels to individuals in the UK. The firm went into liquidation in 2016 and was dissolved in 2017. Their sole director, Mark Bonifacio, stated that the firm had installed more than 15,000 solar panel systems, and promised customers that they would be getting “free electricity”.
Mr Bonifacio stated that all energy calculations had been made using rigorous methodology. However, many of those who had bought solar panels started to come to the realisation that their energy output was not what was promised at the initial agreement.
MyPlanet Solar hit the headlines in September 2019 when the BBC reported that thousands of customers were complaining. Bolton resident, Tony Walch, was sold the solar panels by MyPlanet on the promise he would be better off by £30,000 over 20 years. Mr Walch took out a loan of £15,000 but he has since said the panels did not generate the amount of electricity he was promised.
Unfortunately, this an all too familiar story.
MyPlanet’s solar panels typically cost several thousands of pounds. In order to fund the purchase, MyPlanet would agree a finance deal with one of a number of banks, such as Barclays or Clydesdale. MyPlanet customers were then told that this debt would be paid off over time due to the solar panels saving them money on monthly energy bills.
In some cases, customers were even told that they may end up making money through a system called the “feed-in tariff”, where any unused extra energy would be put back into the national grid.
In our experience, neither of these promises were kept. Many of our clients have had to top up their monthly repayments out of their own savings due to the solar panels not performing to their promised capability. This has left many in a serious financial situation with lots of debt.
