Connecticut Attorney General William Tong filed a lawsuit against solar company Vision Solar for unfair and abusive conduct under Connecticut’s Unfair Trade Practices Act. The Attorney General alleges that Vision Solar engaged in unlawful conduct including (i) pressuring elderly and disabled consumers into signing contracts they were not able to read or understand, (ii) altering the scope of work without consent from the consumer, (iii) placing solar panels in unauthorized places, (iv) misrepresenting the efficiency of energy generation and tax benefits that owners would receive, and (v) falsifying credentials when applying for construction permits or conducting work without first obtaining necessary permits. Through the lawsuit, the Attorney General seeks restitution for consumers, civil penalties, and injunctive relief blocking Vision Solar from engaging in further unlawful conduct.
