Have you been mis-sold solar panels?

Were you told the panels would “pay for themselves”?
That they would be “self-funding”?

But you now know that this is certainly not the case.

Our team are experts at claiming compensation for those who were misled into purchasing solar panels. We may even be able to pursue a claim if the company who sold you the panels has gone out of business.

If you think you may have been mis-sold solar panels, please get in touch with TLW Solicitors’ financial mis-selling team today. We may be able to get you compensation and if you bought the panels under a finance agreement, get the outstanding finance written off.

We act on a ‘no win no fee’ basis and you pay us nothing if your case is unsuccessful.
So you have nothing to lose.


Solar Panel Mis-selling background

For a number of years, companies have been advising that buying a solar power system for your home was a fantastic way to save and also earn money from the surplus electricity the system would be generating. This extra electricity could be sold to the national grid for a guaranteed amount, a ‘feed in tariff’.

However, many companies were mis-selling solar panels by misleading customers about how much income and savings they would make. This may have included an exaggeration of the amount of electricity generated or how much their electricity bills would reduce by.

Worse still, many people used finance or credit to purchase the systems and have been left with expensive monthly payments on top of still having to pay for their electricity.

Following a 2011 investigation, consumer rights group Which? found that 9 out of 12 companies selling solar panels gave an inaccurate estimate about how much energy they would produce. 7 out of 12 failed to consider the position of panels on the roof in relation to shade. Such dishonesty combined with an aggressive sales technique has led to a host of solar panel mis-selling cases.


Contact us if the sales process of your solar panels involved any of the following:

  • Misleading information about the amount of electricity your solar power system would produce.
  • Misleading information about the amount of money you would be paid under the feed in tariff.

Even if the company who sold the system is no longer around, we may be able to recover:

  • The money you have paid to date for the system.
  • Recover interest on those sums.
  • Write off your future payments under any finance agreement.
