The collapse of MC Solar, also known as Modern Concepts Solar, has left homeowners throughout Central Florida feeling abandoned after spending money on solar systems that they can no longer use. According to an article by WFTV, the company abruptly closed its doors in late February, leaving many customers with incomplete installations, broken equipment, and no way to get repairs or refunds.
The collapse of MC Solar has raised concerns about the regulation of the solar industry in Florida, which has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. The Florida Solar Energy Industries Association has urged customers to do their research and choose reputable installers before investing in solar panels, warning that “bad actors” can damage the industry as a whole.
Homeowners who had invested in solar panels from MC Solar are now left with unusable equipment and mounting debts, with some even facing liens on their homes. Many have also reported difficulty in contacting the company, with phone numbers disconnected and emails unanswered.
Meanwhile, affected homeowners are left with few options. Some have turned to social media to share their experiences and warn others, while others have sought legal action against the now-defunct company.
In the aftermath of MC Solar’s collapse, it is clear that more needs to be done to protect consumers and ensure that the solar industry in Florida remains sustainable and trustworthy. As homeowners continue to grapple with the fallout of the company’s closure, it is important for regulators, industry leaders, and the public to come together to find solutions and prevent similar situations from occurring in the future.
