Fraud Unit: Solar panel installation

Posted: Updated:

The Better Business Bureau is offering warnings about solar panel installation companies using pushy sales tactics and misrepresenting tax credits.

Our scam to look out for in 2012 is solar installation scams. We've been getting a lot of complaints from consumers who are saying that solar companies are calling them and showing up at their doors to push solar panel installations on them. Some of these companies are misrepresenting which tax credits consumers are eligible for in order to push them into purchasing expensive solar units.

Consumers can also visit to find out what credits they're eligible for.
