NRG Residential Solar Enters $7 Million Class Action Settlement

January 23,2018



A $7 million settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against NRG Residential Solar Solutions LLC (“Defendant” or “NRG Residential”).

The suit claims NRG Residential violated a federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (the “TCPA”) by using prerecorded and/or autodialed calls to advertise the sale and leasing of residential solar panel systems; the suit also claims that NRG Residential violated the TCPA by making calls to telephone numbers registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry (collectively, the “Telephone Call or Calls”). The suit is based on Telephone Calls that NRG Residential allegedly made directly or through third-party lead generators

NRG Residential denies any wrongdoing.

More specifically, the lawsuit alleges that NRG Residential placed or had third parties place prerecorded and/or autodialed calls to the telephones of consumers without their consent promoting the sale and leasing of residential solar panel systems. The suit further alleges that these calls were made to individuals whose telephone numbers were registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry. The lawsuit alleges that, as a result of these calls, NRG Residential violated a federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

NRG Residential denies these allegations and contends that it acted with consumers’ consent, that the calls were not prerecorded and/or autodialed or made to numbers registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry, that it is not responsible for calls made by third parties, or that the calls otherwise did not violate the Act.

The Court decided that this Settlement includes a Settlement Class of about 317,000 individuals in the United States who received a Telephone Call and as to whom NRG Residential was offered name and contact information as a “lead” by a lead generator as a result. All Settlement Class Members appear on a list in NRG Residential’s records of leads offered by lead generators (the “Class List”)

Settlement Class Members who submit valid Claim Forms will be eligible to receive an equal, or pro rata, share of a $7 million Settlement Fund that NRG has agreed to establish, after the payment of expenses and fees.

NRG Residential Solar said in a statement that, "NRG Residential Solar is glad to have this matter move towards resolution and is working to ensure the terms of the settlement are met."

The settlement agreement was first filed in September 2017.

The lawsuit is called Dobkin v. NRG Residential Solar Solutions LLC, Case No. 3:15-cv-05089, and is pending in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
