Section 12-102 Purpose

Energy (ENG)

The legislature hereby finds and declares that the use of renewable energy technologies, such as solar energy, within the state should be encouraged to the maximum extent possible; that effective, well-designed, carefully manufactured and properly serviced solar thermal systems are essential for the development of a viable solar industry; that false claims, fraudulent sales practices, shoddy workmanship, equipment failures and poor servicing of products would inhibit the growth of the solar industry; that adequate warranty protections should be made available to consumers in order to prevent such deceptions; that certain warranty protections are presently made available to consumers of products normally used for personal, family or household purposes pursuant to the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act; and that warranty protections should be made available to purchasers of all solar energy products in this state, regardless of use.
