Greenovated presented me with an overly complicated "marketing agreement" for a solar water heater system, which they claimed would get me a solar water heater for under $4000. Bottom line is that they set up financing, and that they would make all the payments for the first year. They missed making payments the first couple months, then actually paid on it for two months (after the account was already racking up late fees) then quit making payments at all. I found out when the lender started calling and screaming at me on the phone. Compass Bank suggested I make the payments and contact Greenovated to get my money back. Rigggghhhht. This cost me over $2500 from what Greenovated claimed I would have to pay.
Greenovated also promised they would handle filing for the utility rebate, something they never did, and they never answer their phone when called to provide rebate info. This cost me $1500 in lost rebate
If that wasn't enough, a month or so later I find out that, even tho Greenovated was paid in full by Compass, Greenovated failed to pay a supplier for materiels they used. The supplier placed a lien on my house. I showed up at Greenovated's office in person (as they never answered phone messages or email), and they promised they would take care of it. That is the last I heard from them, but not the last I heard from the supplier, as they later threatened to foreclose on my home. I have since come to an agreement with the supplier, so I have to pay for the materials a second time: cost to me $1900.
Those are just the raw costs to me. My credit rating is damaged, and I'm having to pay far more in interest on the account than planned. Energy savings from Greenovated's system are negligible, the system will definitely NOT pay itself off in my lifetime (assuming it lasts that long).
Dealing with Greenovated was the worst decision of my life, they have financially damaged me to a point I'll never be the same. I'm sure they won't be in business much longer, as apparently they are as loathe to pay their lease as they are to pay their suppliers. As a cautionary tale, I can only suggest that people research and make sure who they are doing business with: if you see any of the principals from Greenovated Energy on board (Matthew Blodgett, Richard Blodgett, Joshua Elevethe, Aaron Blodgett, Michael Hutchins), take your money and run before they do. Rumor has it they are still running the same scam under a different business name now. I'll never trust a contractor in Arizona again, unless they can show a decade or better in business and a superior rating at BBB and AZ Register of Contractors, and no legitimate complaints at sites like pissed consumer.
