Don't fall for deceptive sales scams.
DMEA has received many reports of a door-to-door solar panel salesman claiming they are working with DMEA and telling members a DMEA rate increase is on the way. Rest assured, DMEA's rates are NOT changing. We are also not partnering with any solar panel company.
While door-to-door sales is a common and legitimate practice for businesses, follow these tips to protect yourself from scammers.
DON'T fall for pushy or too-good-to-be-true pitches. You might hear: "this will eliminate your electric bill," "the utility will write you a check," "this will power your home during an outage," or "it will cost you nothing upfront."
DON'T sign any contracts to install solar generation before you call DMEA. Your best interests are our concern, and many installers are only concerned with making a sale and profit - not about you.
DON'T believe social media ads designed to trick you by mimicking the appearance of an article; exaggerating savings or the need for financing; or urging you to share your address, contact information, or utility bill.
