Solar City Criminal Business Practices

JUST SAY NO!!!

This rant is long overdue.

Solar City and APS.  Our electric and solar nightmare.  

The images below are my current bills that I owe.  $372.38 to APS our electric company and $253.80 to Solar City.  A grand total of $626.18!  I don’t use our air conditioning during the hours of noon to seven pm because that is the plan that we are on.  So without using air conditioning, this is the grand total I owe for last months bills.  

I’ve been a solar customer of Solar City’s since 2011 and it has been nothing but a nightmare with NO SAVINGS WHAT SO EVER!!!

In the next two pictures, you will see that if you don’t pay with a checking account you are charged an extra $15.00 a month every month.  Solar City is such a big company where you can not pay with a debit or credit card.  Another RIP-OFF!!!

In my next photograph, you will see my APS electric bill was $629.96!  That is not including the payment for the Solar City lease as well.  So add up APS and Solar City for the month of July and you will get a total of $837.96!!!  Do you see the solar at work?  All the savings I am receiving from having solar panels on my rooftop?

July for me was an experiment month.  I had a gentleman by the name of Bill that came out to our home because I told someone I would NEVER refer anyone to Solar City because I don’t see any savings and that I am being completely ripped off by the solar and electric companies.  Bill made a house call to our home and reviewed our accounts and ordered an energy audit and called APS to verify that we should be running our air conditioner during the hours of noon to seven because we produce so much energy during those hours and then our bill will be lower.  (I have tried this before and it didn’t work!)  He told me to try it and that we would definitely see a difference in our bill by running the air conditioning during the on-peak hours.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

I texted Bill after I received this bill and it is very comical that he blew me off and NEVER got back to me EVER!!!  So I am just sitting here screwed by the companies as usual.

In this photograph, you see that my bill was $505.07 for July and that was using the air conditioning as well when Bill originally came out to visit us.

Now I’ve taken some pictures of our Powerguide with Solar City.  Our system goes down often and I always get calls and emails about troubleshooting it to bring it back online and they will refund what has been messed up.  I will receive a credit for the system not working properly. 

And that my friends is a crock of bologna to!  I have responded back to these people, I have emailed about receiving credit for my system being down and to no avail I am always screwed and never see any credits or refunds back to me for our system not working properly.

I have emailed the CEO’s emails that I could find, I have made complaints in numerous places and to numerous people and there is never a resolution for us.  I had a gentleman come out that worked for Solar City as well Troy Taylor and he had said he never saw anyone charged so much for kilowatts and that there was something definitely wrong with our system.  That the original lady that signed us up for Solar City screwed us!!!  Her name is Amy and I have to commend her on the wonderful job she has done screwing my family with Solar City.  

I have tried to get this company to remove the panels off the home and they said they would but they would put a lien on the house for $55,000 after they remove the panels.  What a wonderful company I tell you!!!  You get screwed either way. Damned if you have them and damned if you don’t.

I have reached out to this company I don’t know how many times for a resolution to our problem but I only get the middle finger from them on a monthly basis as well as APS.

I talk to people that have gotten Solar City put on their homes in recent years and they are on a flat rate plan where they pay $25.00 a month to APS and their Solar City lease and that is fixed for twenty years.  I find it comical once again that Amy never gave us those options when our contract was worked up.

I think right now I would be happy to find a lawyer to fight for me and my family to have this company put us on a flat rate or get these freakin’ panels off our home.  I feel that we are owed damages I have been going through this since January 2011. Ever since I received my first bill with APS and Solar City I have been complaining that we don’t see any savings.  I knew something wasn’t right in February 2011.  I have been fighting with this company for seven years now with no resolution what so ever.   

It is very disheartening and depressing.  I have six children a full household and am going broke on just making it through our summer months with these thieves.   

This is the worst company ever!  I would steer clear of them and their shady business practices.  

NEVER EVER USE SOLAR CITY!!!  I have heard far better about other solar companies out there and saw people’s bills with my own eyes to know that Solar City is not the way to go.  Of course, we found out about those companies after these crooks put the system on our home.

If there is a lawyer out there that would help me with this situation I would be much obliged!
