My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: California.
I had a contract originally for 25 solar panels. Was approved for them via outside financing and contracts where signed with the financing company and solar. After engineering consult, I could add 5 more. So I did and signed a new contract and change order. The solar company came to install after HOA approval, and just happened to only bring 25 panels and then realized I needed five more. They jerked around until finally the said they needed to cancel the original agreement and sign a new one sighting the finance company no longer just does change orders, they require a whole new contract. So they sent me a terminated agreement and as of yet have not sent me a new contract. I've missed out on using the sun's power and paying more for juice in addition I've had to pay for other things to wait until the solar is installed (some of the 25 panels are installed others are blocking my back yard access ).
The solar wants me to sign new agreement and I don't want to until they reimburse me for lost time and money and I get an actual install date. With a signed termination agreement that states the contractor owes me nothing and I owe them nothing, do they have any legal grounds should I just get someone else to finish the install and not sign a new agreement??
Options and advice would be great.
Thanks in advance.
