Vivint Solar has agreed to pay $975,000 to resolve claims that they violated federal law by placing unsolicited robocalls.
The settlement will benefit consumers who received one or more calls advertising Vivint Solar energy products and services between July 1, 2014 and Nov. 8, 2019.
Certain consumers may have received calls from a company identifying themselves as “Smart Home Solar” which was followed by communication from Vivint Solar.
Plaintiff Darrell Rogers filed his Vivint Solar class action lawsuit in July 2018, alleging that the company used an automatic telephone dialing system, an artificial voice, or a prerecorded voice. According to Rogers, Vivint Solar violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act with their unsolicited phone calls.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a federal law that protects consumers from harassing telemarketing calls, texts, and faxes. If a consumer does not give prior express written consent, companies cannot contact them with unsolicited telemarketing communications. Businesses that violate the TCPA may be ordered to pay steep damages to consumers.
Vivint Solar has not admitted any wrongdoing, but has agreed to pay $975,000 to resolve the TCPA claims against them.
Under the Vivint Solar class action settlement, Class Members are entitled to an equal share of the net settlement fund after attorneys’ fees, administrative costs, plaintiff awards, and other expenses are deducted.
