What do I do if the solar company that installed my System has gone out of business?

Great question. We are here for you!

Lately- in part-due to the Pandemic, we have been receiving many inquiries from clients who have had their systems installed recently by companies who have since gone out of business. Luckily, we have been taking on system re-start jobs. Weather through ordering new Inverters for the customer through the inverter manufacturer’s Warranty- or simply troubleshooting.

-For example, American Solar Direct filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in California Central Bankruptcy Court (first spotted by Triple Pundit). According to its bankruptcy filing, the company had less than $50,000 in assets and liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million. In 2013, GTM Research named American Solar Direct (ASD) as a residential PV installer to watch. At the time, ASD was one of the few top 20 installers that had experienced consistent, positive quarter-over-quarter growth since it began installing PV systems in California in 2010. ASD raised its own project funds and received two rounds of equity investment, as well as $50 million to support its lease program from WGL Holdings, parent company of utility Washington Gas. A year ago, American Solar Direct won an undisclosed amount of funding from Dubai-based Adenium Capital. Verengo, Sungevity and OneRoof are also out of business. Tesla saved SolarCity with an acquisition. In any case- we are here to help! We offer affordable pricing for System re-servicing.
