Protecting Consumers with HB 2156

In our ongoing series about solar consumer protection issues, we’re excited to share the latest developments. Recent legislation effective June 7, 2024, strengthens consumer rights in solar transactions. These laws, developed in collaboration with WASEIA, electrical utilities, and Washington’s Department of Commerce, aim to safeguard consumers from unethical practices in the solar industry.

The Benefits of Solar Are Enticing!

The rate of residential solar PV (photovoltaic) installations across the US is soaring due to the climate crisis, rising utility rates, and the potential for homeowners to save tens of thousands of dollars in the long run. The combination of local, national, and utility financial incentives, along with a 90% decrease in the costs of solar equipment, has created a significant increase in public interest. However, this surge has also drawn the attention of unethical companies looking to exploit consumers.

Increased Public Skepticism About Solar Companies

Aggressive marketing and high-pressure sales tactics by some solar companies have led to increased consumer complaints. These companies often package solar installation and financing together, ultimately costing consumers thousands more than reputable installers would charge. In the past year alone, consumer distrust with solar contractors has doubled.

Working Together for the Common Good

Solar consumers, WASEIA, electrical utilities, and Washington’s Department of Commerce collaborated with lawmakers to establish these new protections. We are highly supportive of these measures, as they help ensure a trustworthy and transparent solar market in Washington state.
