Dear Solar Fred,
I’ve had a very bad experience with my contractor re: a passive solar pool heating system – is there a way to “broadcast” this to the wider public so as to save other people from being caught?
Absolutely. I would put a post on Yelp.com or Angie’s list. But be specific. Explain the whole situation, why you think you got bad service. If you just insult without backing up why you were unhappy, it may appear like sour grapes because you found out you could have gotten a better deal somewhere else. Plus, it also helps the contractor to realize that he’d better give the best service all the time, or get a bad reputation.
Hope that helps.
