BOSTON (Legal Newsline) – Two New England consumers are suing the nation’s largest installer of residential solar energy systems, alleging the defendant made numerous, unsolicited telemarketing calls to consumers.

Carole Gibbs of Massachusetts and Arthur Colby on Connecticut, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit June 1 in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts against SolarCity Corp., alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  

According to the complaint, SolarCity engages in an aggressive telemarketing program to generate leads to beef up its 230,000-member customer base. The suit says the solar energy firm places repeated, unsolicited calls to consumers’ telephones, including to cell phones that appear on the National Do Not Call Registry. The plaintiffs argue that the calls constitute harassment and invasion of privacy.

Colby, Gibbs and other class members seek a jury trial, actual and statutory damages, and an injunction against further calls. They are represented by attorneys Julie M. Tolek of Think Pink Law in Framingham, Mass., by Stefan Coleman of the Law Offices of Stefan Coleman LLC in Miami, and by Steven L. Woodrow and Patrick H. Peluso of Woodrow & Peluso LLC in Denver.
