Beware of door-to-door solar promises

By Staff Writer

Record Staff – Consumer groups are advising caution when dealing with home sales pitches that seem too good to be true.
Door-to-door salespeople in Estrie are currently offering solar panel systems and promising significant savings and some are exceedingly skillful at advocating for their products, the Association of Estrie Home Economics Cooperatives (ACEF) and the Office of Consumer Protection warned.
They promise subsidies, a system that can meet all their home energy needs, attractive income from reselling surplus electricity to Hydro-Quebec, and significant savings on energy bills. These would be enough that the investment will pay for itself in just a few years, according to the sales pitch. See full story in the Thursday, July 5 edition of The Record.
