Defective Solar Panels – Legal Investigation

PRODUCT: Solar Panels
CASE STATUS: Under Investigation

Berger Montague is investigating a potential nationwide class action lawsuit against manufacturers of solar panels as a result of a possible common defect that is causing the panels to prematurely disintegrate, sometimes causing complete failure just two years into their twenty-five year life span.

According to a New York Times’ research, “the $77 billion solar industry is facing a quality crisis just as solar panels are on the verge of widespread adoption.”  The article quotes an industry expert who believes that “some manufacturers are absolutely swapping in cheap Chinese materials to save money.”

Consumers who experienced problems with their solar panels may be entitled to compensation. If you purchased or installed solar panels that were defective or are not generating the megawatts as promised, you may be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit.

If you suspect that your solar panels may be faulty or defective, we would like to learn more about your experience.  For questions about this investigation, please contact Shanon J.
