Q: I signed a solar/battery install contract. The system is incomplete and doesn't function as agreed. What are my options?
Hello everyone. I worked at and purchased a solar panel system from a solar installer in Michigan. There is a panel that is not functioning and I have had no help from the installation company for literally 87days. The battery was to be installed in 2022 when available. The battery is still not installed. I cannot get much of a response even though I am a former employee that left on good terms. I just keep getting blown off. This is not what I agreed to pay for and the lending company (Enium) said I am responsible for the loan. How can they hold me responsible for something like this? How can I at least get this off my credit report? I don't want to pay for this unfinished and failing project. Can anyone help me please?
A: You will need to sue the solar installer for breach of contract. In most instances, the finance company is not responsible for the solar system not working. All it did was provide money pursuant to a loan. The company that sold you the system, and the manufacturer of the system, are legally responsible for non-delivery of the battery and performance problems.
