AG seeks input from Spanish speaking consumers

Albuquerque, NM – In collaboration with the solar, energy and housing industries, consumer protection groups and regulators, Attorney General Hector Balderas released today the Distributed Generation Disclosure Statement. This form is designed in an easily understood and visually distinct manner to help consumers understand the important terms of a solar power system purchase, lease or power purchase agreement.

The Attorney General is releasing the first version of the Distributed Generation Disclosure Statement today as part of his continuing effort aiding consumers to educate themselves in the often complex terms associated with putting distributed solar generation on their homes. The form may be used to comply with the requirements of the Distributed Generation Disclosure Act by companies who offer distributed solar systems.

The form is created to ensure that consumers have the information they need to understand the transaction around their decision to install solar on their home. The Attorney General is looking to help New Mexicans who feel they have been misled about the installation of solar panels on their homes. Attorney General Balderas is especially interested in hearing from consumers whose primary language is other than English, on their experience in buying or leasing solar power systems or entering into purchase power agreements. To relate your experience with the offer, sale, purchase or lease of solar power system with the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Advocates, please call (505) 717-3500.

To access the Distributed Generation Disclosure Statement please visit the Attorney General’s consumer protection site:
