In my opinion most of the problems regarding potential miss-selling start with a cold call.
RECC have acknowledge this in their July newsletter. Last January they received 973 complaints about solar panels. By July this had trebled to 2855.
An Ofcom survey, carried out over a four-week period, confirmed a substantial increase in nuisance calls about solar panels.
Ofcom has produced a series of leaflets and videos to help consumers know where to get advice about nuisance calls and how to complain. In the first instance, consumers should ask who is phoning them and make a complaint to ICO.
Solar panels are a great investment when installed by a company who knows what they are doing, the price is competitive and the kit good quality. By visiting sites such as this potential customer’s can educate themselves on what to expect should they decide to invite a solar or renewable company into their homes.
