AZ ROC: Yuma Licensee Summarily Suspended
PHOENIX, Ariz., (March 6, 2019)- On Tues., March 5, 2019, the Arizona Registrar of Contractors summarily suspended the CR-11 Electrical license held by AEOS Energy Inc. (ROC 317617), a Yuma-based contracting business.
Between Feb. 25 and Feb. 27, 2019, AZ ROC received six complaints from Maricopa, Queen Creek and Gilbert homeowners alleging abandonment. Five of the homeowners paid contracts in full, and in total, the six homeowners are out $183,335.50. None to little work was started on any of the projects, however.
Based on the complaints received and the preliminary investigations, the Agency issued a summary suspension alleging six counts of abandonment. As the investigation continues, these counts may be amended.
A summary suspension prohibits the licensee from being able to legally contract as of the day it is issued. In turn, it requires the Agency provide the contractor a prompt hearing at the Office of Administrative Hearings and the hearing is set for 9:00 A.M. on March 22, 2019.
The Agency encourages impacted consumers who have contracted with and paid AEOS Energy Inc. but not received completed projects to file a complaint with the agency as soon as possible to have their cases investigated.
