If you received a call offering a SolarCity product between November 6, 2011 and October 16, 2017, a class action settlement may affect your rights.

A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit called Lucero v. SolarCity Corp. The lawsuit alleges that marketing calls made by or on behalf of SolarCity violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (“TCPA”). SolarCity maintains that it did not make any unauthorized marketing calls, the lawsuit is without merit, and it was prepared to vigorously defend all aspects of it.

You are included in the Settlement Class if, at any time between November 6, 2011 and October 16, 2017, you received from or on behalf of SolarCity (1) one or more calls on your cell phone or (2) at least two telemarketing calls during any 12-month period where your phone number appeared on a National or State Do-Not-Call Registry or Solar City’s Internal Do-Not-Call List more than 15 days before the calls.

If the Court approves the Settlement, you may be eligible to receive a single payment. Your payment amount will depend on how many Settlement Class Members submit valid Claim Forms. The Settlement Fund will be divided and distributed equally—sometimes referred to as “pro rata”—to all Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Forms after attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, any award for the Class Representative, and notice and administration costs have been deducted.

Please read this website carefully. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.
