  3. Jacqueline VAsqez says:

    Hi I was trying to file a claim can I be mailed one.

    ADMIN – Hi Jaqueline,

    This settlement does not have a paper form. You must file online.

  4. Lillie R Brown says:

    Received calls. On do not call list.

  5. Lillie R Brown says:

    I am on the Do Not Call List. I received calls fron SolarCity.

  6. Enith Menendez says:

    I received calls that sound similar to a solar company. Please check my number.

    ADMIN – Hi Enith,

    Even if you had given us your phone number we would have no means or authority to check it. You can reach out to the class action administrator; they might be able to help you out.

  7. DHarma Sawyer says:

    Many of you if you had a door knocker or Home Depot Energy consultant capture your information, you touched “accept” to a statement that gave Solarcity permission to use your phone line given for telemarketing and business.

    ADMIN – Hi Dharma,

    That info is super useful. Thanks!

  8. Clarice King says:

    What about landlines? I get four to five calls every day from solar a solar company even after telling them I’m on the no call list and ask them to not call again. Them and foreclosure help companies and medicare supplement companies. All day long they call and with different ID numbers.

    ADMIN – Hi Clarice,

    Yes if your landline was in the Do not call registry and met all other criteria set forth in the section titled class eligibility.

    • Punque DaPhonas says:

      The BEST way I’ve found to get a PERMANENT fix for Solar/Remodeling companies that disregard the National DoNotCall Registry is as follows: A) Answer the phone and sound interested – ask some softball questions. B) Set up an appointment for a salesperson to come to your house. C) Print out the strictures of the NDNCR (at and hand it to the sales rep when they arrive. D) Smile and request that the sales rep pass the information on to their Supervisor and or Sales Department.
      If enough folks use methods that waste the companies’ time and resources, eventually they will either disappear or will start conducting business within the law…

  9. Robert Alexander says:

    Calls from solar city became too much in a one day period

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    That makes you a class member!

  10. lesle marchese says:

    please mail me a claim form unable to pull up.

    ADMIN – Hi Lesle,

    We are not in charge of this settlement and we are unable to satisfy your request. You need to contact the class action administrator.

  11. Deb B says:

    I got MANY call on my cell and landline…even after we started using their service we kept getting calls to see if we needed solar =O

  12. Alan says:

    I received calls from SolarCity, but the numbers are coming from their representatives’ personal mobile phones. Sometimes they setup an appointment to discuss their quotation but never showed up. Will makes me a class member?

    ADMIN – Hi Alan,

    Class eligibility is as follows:

    All individuals in the United States, from November 6, 2011 to October 16, 2017, who received from or on behalf of SolarCity (1) one or more calls on their cell phones or (2) at least two telemarketing calls during any 12-month period where their phone numbers 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. Everyone who fits this description is a member of the Settlement Class.

  13. John says:

    I received a card with a claim number so does that mean I did receive calls in that time frame from this company? From 2011-2016 is kind of a long time to remember what company has been calling you. I’ve received a lot of telemarketing calls over that time. So I guess is there a way to check?

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    If you received a card you are likely a class member. Go ahead and file your claim.

  14. Robert and Dorothy DeVrieze says:

    I have received several calls,we now have solar panel and we our still getting phone calls

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    If you have a panel you authorized the call therefore you are not likely to be a class member.

  15. Ashley huber says:

    On do not call list doesn’t seem to matter

  16. Ann says:

    As a customer of SolarCity, I immediately am very uneasy and suspicious about this claim. My first thought is that there must be a “special interest” with Lucero coming against SolarCity – AND I DON’T LIKE IT. We need to institute renewable alternative energies in our world. Why is Lucero’s REAL motive?

    ADMIN – Hi Ann,

    This has nothing to do with the type of energy they sell. The settlement is related to violations of TCPA. They called you without your permission. No conspiracy here.

  17. john says:

    I get calls like once a month from them. I always tell them to not call me again. They don’t listen.
    They also send me regular mail too.
    Yes, I did file a claim.

    Now only if someone can go after Luke Joshua. Calls from them got so annoying, like almost every hour. Gotten so bad I had to block that number.

  18. velma edmond says:

    I have several calls from Solar city, when they final came out they said I needed under panel before they could put on solar panel which would cost me $11,000.00.

    ADMIN – Hi Velma,

    The question is: Did you authorize Solar to call you? If you signed one of those Home Depot forms to have a salesman come to your house they were entitled to call you and you are not a class member.

  19. Patricia McFarland says:

    I have a Confirmation Code is: HXUVBLYJ but no claim number has been sent to me. Called your phone number and it said it’s no longer in service. I listed 3 and possibly 4 numbers that I have been harassed by cruise lines (and other unwanted soliciting) over the years. I lived in Oklahoma until 2013. Am now in Colorado since 2013. EVERY number I ever had have been on both the state & federal DO NOT CALL LIST since the lists began.
    I absolutely am apart of this law suit! But how do I get a claim number?

    ADMIN – Hi Patricia,

    This settlement is about calls pitching solar panels. Perhaps you are talking about Carnival Cruises settlement? For that settlement not all numbers qualify. If you have a confirmation number it is because you have already claimed.

  20. Roxanne Jenkins says:

    Hello my name is Roxanne Jenkins, I believe I am apart of this Class Action suit although I have had several different telephone numbers since 2011 till now and I’m on a no call list but still I’ve been contacted by telemarketers within this time span about Solar Panels, Pleas tell me what do now about receiving my part of this Class Action Suit, I reside in NYC

    ADMIN – Hi Roxanne,

    File a claim using the link provided.

  21. Irena Holmes says:

    I receive calls all the time I don’t know if any were actually from solorcity I am on the do not call list.. And I actually did get solar panels from them. But not from a phone call. I still get phone call from some companies the is my cell 661428-3592.

    ADMIN – Hi Irena,

    Contact the class action admin to get clarification on how to move forward.

  22. Barbara Knight says:

    I received a post card with a claim number. However, I didn’t realize that there was a claim number until after I filed the claim. I would like to use the claim number that is on the card, but the card indicated that only one claim should be submitted. I called the phone number that was provided (888-865-0824), but it is only a recording. Is there an email address? If not, what do you suggest I do?

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara,

    If you submitted a claim without the number they will locate and match your number so don’t worry about it.

  23. Robert Cervantes says:

    I misplaced the postcard that had my personal claim number, can I have the number emailed to me to complete the settlement claim form.

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    You need to contact the class action administrator directly. Just scroll up to find their info.

  24. Barbara Knight says:

    I submitted a comment November 13, 2017. I don’t understand why my comment is “awaiting moderation” when another comment submitted after mine has received a reply from the ADMIN. Did I submit it incorrectly?

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara,

    As you probably know we are a team of volunteers. We try our best to reply in a timely manner but some questions require additional research. You submitted correctly and we will get to your question eventually.

  25. Mary M Weireter says:

    Hi, I received a postcard with my number and information on it and my husband put both postcards in recycling. OHHHH How can I get my claim number back to file a claim because I was called numerous times. No one answers at the phone number it is just a recording, HELP PLEASE

    Thank you very much. Mary

    ADMIN – Hi Mary,

    Why don’t you try class counsel? Their info is in the FAQ for the settlement.

  26. Ashley says:

    Do you have any idea how many postcards were mailed out?

    ADMIN – Hi Ashley,

    I don’t

  27. Robert Serrano says:

    What was the verdict?

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    The class action administrator has not updated their page.

  28. JOANNE EGERSON says:

    These people called me over and over again regarding investing in solar hardware.

  29. keith youshaw says:

    Called many times a day dayafterday

    ADMIN – Hi Keith,

    Consider filing a claim

  30. Jennifer ogrodnick says:

    Between the textes phone calls and the knocks on my door these people are ridiculous .

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

    If you believe you are a member of the class please file a claim.

  31. ADE says:

    Any news about the verdict?

    ADMIN – Hi Ade,

    Nothing new

  32. Sandra Pierre says:

    Sandra Pierre

    I received calls on my cell phones

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    Did you file a claim?

  33. Kutty Menon says:

    Hi Admin – is there any update on this class action lawsuit, which had a final verdict on Jan 18, 2018?

    ADMIN – Hi Kutty,

    In checking the official website I don’t see any updates.

  34. Karen LaCosse says:

    What is wrong with all the people who keep commenting on individual claims with their personal info., stating they want to be included in the claim and other ridiculous questions??? Class Action Rebates is just providing the information and links to claims and claim advisers. They DO NOT HANDLE ANY CLAIMS LISTED ON THE SITE!!! They simply provide the info. It is up to each person to use the links to file claims and contact the listed administrators. Commenting that you want to be included in any claim is useless. Good grief… Some people need to learn how to read!

    ADMIN – Hi Karen,

    While you speak truth nobody here will read nor understand what you are saying 😉

  35. Nicole says:

    I received the post card and I filed a claim online. When will the checks be dispersed if eligible?

    ADMIN – Hi Nicole,

    Funds are usually distributed after the filing deadline has passed and all appeals have cleared. That can take months to years depending on the complexity of the case.

  36. Sue Ling says:

    Finally, we can put a stop to this!!!

  37. ISRAEL HIRSCH says:


    ADMIN – Hi Israel,

    I believe you are incorrect.

    • Maria says:

      I have attempted to call multiple times and there is never an answer. I submitted my claim well before the due date and never received any other information about this. Not a letter, email, or call. From the looks of it, this is all a hoax!!

  38. Gerrie M. H says:

    I received a postcard of the settlement Legal Notice some time ago, any haven’t heard further news. Do I need to still file a claim or was my name already included in the settlement. Or how can I find out if my name was already included in the settlement?

    ADMIN – Hi Gerrie,

    Without having the card in front of me I can’t tell you if you needed to file or if it was an automatic payment. Your best bet is to contact the class action admin.

  39. Val says:

    Hi was wondering, since the hearing was in January 18, 2018 @ 1:30 have any payments been mailed out yet.

    ADMIN – Hi Val,

    Nobody has reported payments from this settlement.

  40. Tamara Jones says:

    Tamara T Jones PC#5989622582
    Thank in advance for all of your attention in this matter.

    ADMIN – Hi Tamara,

    We can’t help you. You need to reach out to the class action administrator directly. Their info is posted above under “contact”.

  41. Lori says:

    Any news on how much the pro rata payments will be, since the date to file has passed?

    ADMIN – Hi Lori,

    No updates yet.

  42. Jim says:

    Unable to reach the “administrator” at 888-865-0824. Only recorded messages available.
    What is the number to reach the administrator?

    ADMIN – Hi Jim,

    This is the company handling the settlement. Try contacting them directly.

  43. david says:

    checks will be sent out on june 16

  44. Joe moreno says:

    Is this for real? I sent in my info and have a copy and the post card. so 15 mil will be divided by the 43 responses?

    ADMIN – Hi Joe,

    Have you contacted the administrator to check?

    • ronin says:

      It’s not based of the 43 people on this site. There are many more that mailed in cards. I read 500-1500 per person is the range.

  45. Maria Aguilar says:

    I Just got a post card, Can I still file a claim.

    ADMIN – Hi Maria,

    The deadline has passed. You may no longer file.

  46. Alicia Connelly says:

    I would like to have an idea of the award amount, if possible.

    ADMIN – Hi Alicia,

    We don’t have that information yet.

  47. Raj says:

    I’ve tried contacting the administrator and it’s an automated message with no way to speak to a real person, any idea on who I could email or call?

    Is there anyway I could contact the attorney’s office?

    ADMIN – Hi Raj,

    In the FAQ under the question that addresses representation you will find the name of the lawyer/law firm taking care of the case.

  48. Terry Baker says:

    When will the checks be malled

    ADMIN – Hi Terry,

    I hear people are already receiving checks.

  49. Terry says:

    When will the checks be mailed out

    ADMIN – Hi Terry,

    I have received multiple reports of checks received.

  50. Amy says:

    Check the mail today!

  51. Melissa Mason says:

    Have checks been mailedout yet?

    ADMIN – Hi Melissa,

    Not that I can tell.

  52. Melissa Mason says:

    On my informed mail delivery i got a piece of mail for solarcity settlement and am hoping its the check. Where they for sure mailed the 16th?

    ADMIN – Hi Melissa,

    That is what I am hearing.

  53. Joe Gotts says:

    Received Solarcity TCPA Settlement check today 6/18/2018 of $94.91.

    • Jennifer o says:

      I got got a settlement check for 9491 something like that but if I look at top corner it look like I said void on top what is that all about

      • Jeremiah says:

        I think you’re missing a decimal point in that amount somewhere because over $9000 would be a heck of a lot of money.

  54. Sherry says:

    So, my mom got her measly check of $94.91 today. What happened to $500-$1500 per call?? I know I got many calls from them and I’m waiting to see if my check is for the same amount, which means you guys weren’t honest about those numbers, just to get more people involved in the suit. I was in another class action about unrecorded calls while on ‘do not call’ list and received $950 per call, which ended up being a maximum of 2 calls. So I got a check for $1900. Naturally, I believed that this would be about the same.

    ADMIN – Hi Sherry,

    Keyword is estimated. When a settlement is released the administrator takes an educated guess as to the humber of applicants that will file and comes up with a number. At the end of the day the calculation is pro rata. Regardless, in the case of TCPA violations I believe $94 is mighty generous.

  55. Lewis K. Christian says:

    Yes, I too received Solarcity TCPA Settlement check today 6/18/2018 in the amount of $94.91.

  56. Kim Knight says:

    My check is in my cat’s name which is the name I use for my home phone. How am I cashing that?

    ADMIN – Hi Kim,

    Lucky cat! Given it is illegal to use pet names when conducting business you might as well discard the check.

  57. Sarah says:

    Husband and I each received a check for $94.91 on 6/18/18.

  58. Danielle M Perri says:

    I moved last month , but my mail is still being forwarded, do you think I will still receive one?

    ADMIN – Hi Danielle,

    Low chance, ask the new tenant to hold it for you.

  59. Christina says:

    Has anyone actually cashed there check? I received mine for $94.91 and when I went to cash it was told it wasn’t in the system and was a fradulent check.

  60. April Synnott says:

    Can anyone confirm the issuing bank for the settlement checks? I just want to verify.

  61. Jessie Ramos says:

    Let me rephrase my question…. in the end, how many “Approved Claims” were received and calculated into the the distribution of the

    ADMIN – Hi Jessie,

    The best way to get to that number is to take the total pool minus listed expenses and divide it by approximately $90 per class member.

  62. melissa bumann says:

    I received my check but also having problem cashing it!! Isnt issuance of worthless checks a CRIME??!

    ADMIN – Hi Melissa,

    Reach out to the class action administrators.

    • Mrs. Beck says:

      I called the phone number for the Administrators and was not able to speak to a person. It is an automated system with no option for a representative. I now have a check for $94.91 AND am out $12.00 from my bank for a returned item fee. REALLY??

      ADMIN – Hi Mrs. Beck,

      Try this # +1 503 265 0700

  63. Rosa Grimes says:

    I submitted both mine and my husbands phone numbers. Solar city called us both but my husband received a check and I did not. My confirmation code is. SF6XQBZM. How can I check on this?

    ADMIN – Hi Rosa,

    I believe they consider a second submission under the same address to be invalid but you can always check with the class action administrator.

  64. Lyn says:

    Anyone cashed the check yet? I just want to make sure I don’t have any issues.

  65. joel Jenne says:

    Have all the checks been released? Have a claim number but have not received a check. How do I check to find out why?

    ADMIN – Hi Joel,

    You can call the class action administrator. Their contact information is posted above.

  66. Johnny says:

    So what’s the deal with the checks, are they good to cash or will it bounce?

    ADMIN – Hi Johnny,

    Have your bank verify the check prior to cashing.

  67. John Stagg says:

    Went to deposit my check a week ago, my bank said it was void because it was past the 90 days. Could you please replace this check “SolarCity TCPA Settlement” check #82210 dated 6/15/18? What do I need to do to resolve this problem?

    Thank you,

    John Stagg

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    No, we are not the class action administrators and checks are generally not replaced. You are probably out of luck.

  68. Marianne Russo says:

    I did not receive a check, but I have a postcard with a claim number #6634551965. Now what?

      Hi Marianne, Please contact the Settlement Administrator directly, if you haven’t already done so. The details are provided above; just scroll up. Thank you, and best of luck.

  69. Leobardo & Alma R Ruiz says:

    I was looking at objects in getting SOLAR CITY to make things right with us and I found this. I do not remember getting notification of this at all. I bought my solar and now i’m stuck with still paying to the utilities about the same money.

    do I have any resort of getting the settlement or is it too late?

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, Leobardo. Thanks for your message, and sorry to hear that. However, we ( are *not* the settlement/claims administrator of this case — we are only an online “newspaper” of various class action settlements involving various companies. As for your question, once a settlement is closed, that’s it. But please check the settlement website for any updates on the issue, and/or contact the Settlement Administrator directly, if you haven’t already done so. The details are stated above; just scroll up. Thank you, and best of luck.
