County Warns of Possible False Marketing Claims by Solar Companies

Nov. 2, 2017

Fairfax County officials want residents to be aware about possibly misleading marketing practices by one or more solar energy companies.

Consumers have reported that a solar company claims to be working with the county as part of Solarize Fairfax County. This program ended on June 30, 2017. Fairfax County is not working with any solar companies, nor does the county endorse any companies.

Earlier this year, the county partnered with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and the nonprofit Local Energy Alliance Program, or LEAP, to offer the Solarize program. However, LEAP operated the program, including selecting and negotiating rates with two qualified solar companies. Fairfax County did not choose the companies that participated.

For advice on installing solar or finding a qualified company, contact the Local Energy Alliance Program at 703-517-7251, TTY 711. You also may contact Fairfax County’s Consumer Affair Branch at 703-222-8435, TTY 711, to get advice and tips on researching companies before doing business with them.
