Additional Notes

Complaint: Affinity Solar Engery installed a solar system and warntee on labor for ten years. Our system is malfunctioning and they have left town without notice We had a solar system at our residence, *** ******* ***** in the Town of ******** ** in September 2010 by ***** ******* (Lic XXXXXX B, C-46, Journeyman Electrical # XXXXXX) DBA Affinity Solar Energy Inc. The system was warranted on all work to include labor on replacement of failing parts for no less than ten years. We paid a substantial amount for the labor to install the system, parts, the warrantee and the monitoring of the system. We have issues with failing micro converters. When we attempted to contact Mr. Shaffer we found that Affinity Solar Energy Inc .was closed down under the auspice of retiring. We received no notification or reimbursement for the warrantee, are now out of pocket costs to repair the system and are required to obtain the services of another solar company to monitor our system for performance and/or failure. In speaking with other business representatives, information has been provided that Mr. Shaffer is most likely in the state of Hawaii involved in the same business and business practices. Thank you for your consideration. Respectfully, **** *****

Desired Settlement: Seeking a refund for the amount paid for the five years left on the warrantee and for any costs for another company to monitor the system to include any labor costs involved with repair of system failures.
