Equisolar, Inc. is on the receiving end of a proposed class action lawsuit in which a California man says the company violated state law by failing to provide him with a Spanish translation of his contract. According to the complaint, the defendant solicited the plaintiff at his home in an attempt to sell him solar panels. The company’s representative allegedly informed the man that he would save money on his energy bill and would receive a $5,000 bonus from the government if he installed solar panels on his home. After expressing interest in the offer, the plaintiff was allegedly presented with a contract written in English, despite his inability to speak the language. The suit claims Equisolar never provided the plaintiff with a Spanish translation of the document, which grants him “the right to cancel.”
Furthermore, the plaintiff says his energy bill did not decrease and he never received a bonus from the government as promised.
