Customer Question
I signed a...

I signed a contract for solar installation that was supposed to lower my electricity. Before my monthly bill ran an average of 242 a month. Now it is costing me 342 average a month. I have a case going but because I signed a contract they tell me I'm stuck. Everyone I talked to about this says something is wrong. I am unable to sell my house because of this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes legal defence but no one returns my call

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The solar company knows I want more panels, lower my kwh cost or take them out.I'm a senior citizen 84 years old. On social security and feel the salesman took advantage of me not knowing anything about the product.

It does not really make sense. Have you had the panels and the installation examined by another electrical contractor to see if there are defects in the panels or installation?

Does the contract contain a warranty regarding performance and referencing the electrical charges?
