Solar cowboys are on the prowl
A RENEWABLE energy company is warning householders and businesses not to be blinded by “solar cowboys” who promise the earth but fail to deliver.
Clean Energy of Harrogate is calling on the Government to do more to rid the industry of unscrupulous firms cashing in on the green energy boom.
Tamsin Cassidy says: “Sadly there are a number of rogue firms operating in the region, either using bully-boy tactics or offering deals which are too good to be true.”
She advises people to check that installers are members of trade bodies like the Yorkshire and Humber Microgeneration Partnership (YHMP) and the Renewable Energy Association. www.cleanenergy-uk.com.
