What to Know About the Horizon Solar Power Settlement
Horizon Solar Power battled a class action lawsuit that accused the company of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) with unsolicited telemarketing calls.
The calls that came from the company allegedly used an automatic dialing system and prerecorded messages and were done without consumer consent.
According to the class action lawsuit, the company used such a system as it allows for “thousands of automated calls to be placed at one time” compared to using telemarketing representatives who could only call each customer one at a time. This shifts the burden of wasted time to consumers.
Under the TCPA, businesses are required to obtain express prior written consent before sending consumers automated telemarketing calls, texts, or faxes and include communications sent using an automatic dialing system and/or a prerecorded message.
