    Isis Solar - Free Panels - something fishy going on?

    Isis Solar - Free Panels - something fishy going on? 21st Jun 17 at 10:22 AM
    We were one of the many households that jumped on the ISIS Solar bandwagon back in 2011 and had free solar panels installed.

    We are just coming to sell our house, and I've found out that ISIS Solar have gone out of business, so in theory ownership of the panels should revert back to me.

    However, I've been doing some research and it's a bit more complicated, so I'd really like some input or if anyone has any further information.

    Here's what I found so far:

    ISIS Solar were incorporated on 2nd July 2010. Administrators were appointed on 24th November 2015, and the company was dissolved on 8th March 2017.

    ISIS Solar 1 was incorporated on 26th August 2010. It's still marked as active, but they have only ever filed accounts for a dormant company (Lsst filing for the period to 30th March, 2016)

    ISIS Solar 2 was incorporated on 14th June 2010 as Switch Energy. Name changed to ISIS Solar 2 on 30th Nov 2010. A compulsory strike-off notice was issued on 18th Oct 2011, and that notice was discontinued on 11th Feb 2012. Once again, this company have only ever submitted accounts for a dormant company.

    All of the "Accounts for a dormant company" submissions show a balance sheet of just the share capital (£100), and no assets.

    On checking my contract / roof lease is with ISIS Solar 2, and as far as I am aware, that is who we dealt with (and have spoken to a number of times since).

    But, none of the phone numbers for ISIS Solar (0, 1 or 2) work. I spoke to the administrators for the original ISIS Solar company, and they said that the original ISIS solar was just a holding company for the others, and that the contracts were now being looked after by Solar O&M. Incorporated 15th September 2015. (Unsurprisingly by the same directors at the same address).

    So, ISIS solar was a holding company for at least 2 other ISIS Solar companies, none of which have ever declared any assets, despite having contracts in place for the solar panels. Those subsidiary companies have been declaring dormant accounts, and now the contracts are been managed by another un-related company (Which shows big liabilities on the balance sheet - as if they maybe bought the contracts?).

    It's all very suspicious in my mind. Can anyone shed any light?

    Hi Lee,

    I am just wondering if I could possibly have the contact details for Mr Ian Gilbert? I need a deed of variation to be changed to meet CML guidelines and so far this post has been the most helpful. Thank you in advance.

    Kind Regards

    As she joined MSE specifically to ask about ISIS, I doubt she'll be back.

    I suggest you message (PM) helenmiddlerasen - the details won't be able to be posted in the thread.

    Click on Helen's name on her post and it will give you the option of sending a private message.
    But she'll not see it unless she logs on.
