Q: My solar company went bankrupt. My system was installed wrong snd it does not work. Never worked. Empire Solar

Loan company says I have to continue to pay for something that was never finished. I was promised 5k for purchasing system by the sales company who say they won’t pay because they didn’t get paid by Empire Solar. I’m sure there are others in same boat.

A: You really need to discuss with a commercial law attorney in your local area. I had a case like this years ago over an ice machine that was financed for a fish market- they use lots of ice. The bad news is that the loan company is not subject to the same defenses in collecting on the financing, that the seller would be. Your seller is BK so you cannot collect from them, the finance company may still be able to collect from you. BUT the laws could have changed, so you really, really need to speak with an attorney that deals in this kind of case, regularly. Best of luck.
