So­lar cow­boys are on the prowl

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.
