Richardson, TX asked in Civil Litigation and Contracts for Texas

Q: I live in Dallas and approximately two years ago my husband and I were scammed into a solar panel lease.

About two years ago we got solar panels. The representative promised us that this was a good investment because we would never receive an electric bill again. Overall what convinced us to get the solar panels was that he told us we would get a 26% cash back check when it was tax season and it would be up to us if we wanted to put that money down towards the solar panels or keep it. That was a total lie because the solar panel "check" never got here. He never told us that it would be a credit rather than a check. We don't owe any taxes and therefore the credits have no benefit to us. Now I am stuck paying a high solar panel bill and on top of that I always still have an electric bill. Please help me.

A: I am working on a case like this currently and am preparing to sue the solar panel provider as well as the finance company that financed the loan for the equipment. You may have a several valid causes of action here, but I would need to read your contract to make a determination.
