Solar Fred Warning: Energy-4–Earth

If there’s one thing I hate more than a scam it’s a solar power scam. “Energy-4-Earth” and the various titles it goes by promises that you can build your own solar power panels and reap the rewards from the sun. Bull Twinkies.

I’m not going to spend much time on this. All you have to do is google “Energy-4-Earth scam” or “rip off” and many, many sites will come up with consumer complaints. I like this one the best. If it really worked, there’d be a lot of great testimonials on consumer bulletin boards. Any positive testimonials you find are from affiliate seller websites trying to sell you the same rip off product. I’ve heard they get $40 out of every sale.

So, please don’t buy this $200 product. You’ll be wasting your money and be disappointed by a scam artist that gives solar a bad name.

The honest truth is that true solar power is going to be an investment with either cash, home equity, or through one the various innovative solar financing vehicles that I discuss on this blog. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that solar has high up front costs or that you’ll never see a return on your investment.

If you live in the growing number of solar subsidy states, you will see a return on your investment. It just takes time, about 7-13 years these days, depending on your utility and size of your system. So please go solar the right way and get a quote from a qualified installer.

    Agreed. Looks like solar multi level marketing is a growing trend. There is a few in my area now. One wants $500 to join the program and they will pay you $200 a lead, any lead. Really?
