Case Overview

On May 19, 2023, FeganScott filed a class action lawsuit against Generac Power Systems, alleging that the leading energy technology company designed, manufactured, sold, and installed solar energy management systems containing a serious defect. 

The lawsuit focuses on a reportedly defective switch within the power system that can cause a significant decrease in solar production, and over time melt or deform, resulting in total system failure. Owners have reported that the alleged defect has caused several fires, putting entire homes and families at risk.   

According to the complaint, Generac has known about the issue for years and has refused to recall the defective switch or offer a reliable solution to impacted consumers.  

Through its suit, FeganScott aims to hold Generac responsible for the alleged unfair, deceptive, and fraudulent business practices that have led many of its consumers to suffer severe financial losses and recover damages for said losses.
