The Off Grid Solar Miracle PV Firm Comes to an End: The ridiculous claims of Off Grid Solar might be coming to...

A team of lawyers has invested in the dubious company to act as distributors in California -- a case of greed clouding good judgment. Even a beginner in solar should be able to discern the questionable veracity of these claims. Panels supposedly made by the firm were shipped to at least two parties. When tested by these reputable groups, the panels were labeled, in one case, as being from defunct a-Si vendor EPV Solar. In another case the panels tested with efficiencies in the low teens. It would appear that Off Grid Solar is misrepresenting another vendor's panels as their own. In May, an employee of the company, Tom Cernera, invited me to their "factory" for a tour. I told Mr. Cernera I would book the next flight to Florida. Since then, I have contacted the company numerous times and have not received a response.
