AZ ROC: AEOS Energy Inc.’s
PHOENIX, Ariz., (April 3, 2019)- On Wed., April 3, 2019, the Arizona Registrar of Contractors issued the order to revoke the CR-11 Electrical license held by AEOS Energy Inc. (ROC 317617), a Yuma-based contracting business.
The revocation follows a summary suspension issued on March 5, 2019 which was the result of the Agency investigating six complaints of abandonment received within a 3-day period (Feb. 25 and Feb. 27, 2019).
The administrative hearing held, on March 22, 2019, found that AEOS Energy Inc. abandoned it’s six residential contracts by failing to install any solar panels and in some cases, failed to do any work, despite being paid in full on five out of the six contracts. In total the city of Maricopa, Queen Creek, Glendale and Gilbert homeowners are out $183,335.50
A seventh complaint was received the day before the suspension on March 4, 2019. It also alleged abandonment after the homeowner paid $21,000 for a solar system and installation. As with the first six complaints, little work was done before the project was abandoned.
Homeowners who submitted complaints with AZ ROC, which have been adjudicated, are now able to file a claim with the Registrar’s Residential Contractor’s Recovery Fund. The Fund is a form of financial protection provided by licensed Arizona residential contractors to residential homeowners. Claims paid out cover up to $30,000 per property and claimant, up to $200,000 per license.
The revocation will take effect on May 14, 2019.
