    Solar panel lease - get out?

    Solar panel lease - get out? 17th Oct 16 at 6:36 AM
    We have had endless problems from our leased solar panels, and now want them
    removed from our roof, but the maintenance company (legal dept) simply do not respond to my
    messages. We have had them on our roof for approximately 2 years, and they have
    never worked properly, they have just caused endless problems for us.

    Flooding through the roof, blown electrics, defrosted freezer...endless engineer goes on and on! They simply cannot find out what is wrong with them.

    We have never saved us any money and neither have they made Homesun any, as they trip the electrics so often, they are off more than they are on. They have simply cost us money, and been a I want them removed.

    The company say the only way out is to buy them, but why would I pay thousands of pounds for something that doesn't work?!

    Any useful advice gratefully received.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Personally I would write - or get a solicitor to write - and give notice that because of the problems they cause, you are going to get them disconnected.

    Or take them to the small claims court for damages by flooding and ruined food.
