It would be one thing if these companies plain and simply don’t offer a buy back program but this runaround we’re getting . . I can’t imagine that these companies don’t have all kinds of other issues if getting solar information is so hard.
This morning Vince talked to the company that assured him they have a plan that will work. They sent him the agreement we have to fill out and sign. This afternoon, a young man from the same company . . a man I had talked to yesterday and said he would get more info and call me back . . he called. He said “sorry but we don’t offer a buy back program at this time.” I said “Huh? We talked to someone with your company this morning and signed up for the program!” He checked, found the records . . no . . we signed up for a straight electricity provided plan . . no buy back.
Vince called the guy he talked to and he said “Oh, I must have made a mistake!” Can you believe this is how the electric companies do business . . and we’re depending on them for our power? Not only does the left hand not know what the right hand is doing, but they don’t give a flip. The higher up the ladder we go talking to people, the less they seem to care and are more concerned about how we got their number.
The only company left that buys back (or that we thought would buy back . . who knows at this point . .) is the one who will only give you half credit for each kW so we may scrap the whole solar plan. At this point, I’m thinking digging a big hole in the ground and crawling in might be the better idea.
