Lousiville Inspectors find issues with solar projects at 30 properties

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville is moving towards the goal of using 100% of clean energy by 2040 one solar panel at a time.

Friday, a solar system was installed on a home in Louisville as part of the "Solar Over Louisville" campaign that the Louisville Metro Government and the Louisville Sustainability Council have launched.

The city has partnered with Solar Energy Solutions to offer incentives for homeowners to go solar.

The company has been vetted, the city says, but we found that work done by at least one other company isn't so bright.

"I think at the moment we're starting to see some bad actors on to the solar scene", said Steve Ricketts, Solar Over Louisville Project technical advisor. 

FOCUS found that at least one company started work in the Metro and in other parts of Kentucky without pulling the proper permits first.

The Kentucky Attorney General's Office, as well as the AGs in Tennessee and Georgia, are investigating dozens of customer complaints.

John: "You think there is a real chance there are systems out there that are not only not up to par but that can be dangerous?"

Ricketts: "I think so, yeah."

Complaints include panels on the roof for months, but no power generation because the systems have not passed inspection and are therefore not up and running.

At the same time, customers are paying monthly bills while still paying electric bills.

Problems exist in Louisville as well, where corrective actions have been issued to at least 30 properties.

"We're just beginning to become aware and that is why I wanted to be on the front end of this thing," said Metro Councilman (R) Robin Engel.

Louisville's lofty goal is that energy generation here will be 100% clean energy within the next 20-years. 

Another goal is to have half the homes in the Metro use solar by 2050.

That's a big job, and a job needing to be done properly.

"I've seen other installs in the last few years that would give me serious concerns," Ricketts explained.
