Asked in Consumer Law, Contracts and Energy, Oil and Gas for Missouri

Q: Who would I need to contact to resolve this issue?

We had bought our solar system from Green Solar Technologies out of California. They had subtracted our system out to 4 different installers from 2019 until today. They have failed to pay the contractors enough to complete the job and my system is still not set up correctly to this date. I want to sue them to get the job complete and be compensated for the cost of my electric bill when the solar panels were down and not working. Or if it is possible I would like a total refund and the panels to be removed so I can go with another company to have the panels installed correctly.

A: The first step is to contact a Missouri attorney to review the contract. The contract may have a forum-selection clause (which specifies where any lawsuit must be file) or an arbitration provision (which would prohibit suing in court). The attorney would also explain to you the potential remedies. Generally, you’d either seek money damages or injunctive relief, not both. Injunctive relief would be an order for the defendant to do or not do something.
