Stop "Go Green California" Telemarketing

Let me guess.  A rude telemarketer claiming to be from “Go Green California something something” called your home multiple times attempting to set an appointment with you for a solar consultation, right?

I’ll make this clear right off the bat- it’s not GoGreenSolar.com and it’s not GoGreenCalifornia.com. 



You’re sick of being harassed- you’ve tried calling back only to find that their caller ID sends you to some generic voicemail box.  You searched “go green solar” and now you’re talking to us. 

We are familiar with this story, but it’s not us.  

Over the past several months, we’ve had countless individuals call in to complain about a company operating a shady call center, falsely identifying themselves as Go Green Solar or using a name that’s similar at the very least.  This company will apparently make multiple unsolicited phone calls – even to numbers on the National Do Not Call list. 

Solar telemarketers like this often imply that they’re with a government organization or claim to be the utility company.  Businesses that depend on these tactics give renewable energy a bad name. 

So far, we believe we’ve identified one of these companies with a call center located in Van Nuys, California.   There could be more. 

Please understand:  GoGreenSolar.com does not do any telemarketing or door-to-door canvassing.  

That being said, if you have any information about this company that is supposedly misusing our name, please help us put an end to their unethical business practices.

Thanks for your help.

*On a side note, please remember that telemarketers are just employees- they’re often young people trying to make ends meet.  The person making the phone call usually takes the heat for the sleazy company that employs them.  Of course, this is never an excuse for rude or offensive behavior from that individual. *

  1. I get the “they’re often young people trying to make ends meet” part. However, three things: (1) the dude sounded like a 45-year-old good ole’ boy, not a young person. and (2) When I told him about the Do Not Call registry, something he had evidently never heard of, he launched back into his sales-pitch. (3) When I asked to speak to a supervisor, he thought he was incredibly hilarious by changing his voice (sounded like a horrible attempt at sounding like someone from India) and saying he was a supervisor, before hanging up on me.

  2. They have changed tactics and are now using Renewable Energy California. Here’s the deal, though, the company behind it is A1 Solar http://www.a1solarpower.net/contact-us/
    Let’s all give them a taste of their own medicine.

  4. I just had a call from these guys. The telemarketing guys. I am interested in solar so they were very courteous, promising no cost installation or maintainance. They weren’t on the phone long and suggested an official comp[any representative would call me on Monday. It’s Friday night now. I’m a little scared now reading this site because they have my phone number and address and credit rating. We’ll see.

    • Hi Tom, I can understand why you’re worried. From my understanding, it’s likely that this call center is a lead generating service. Unfortunately, you can’t really know who you’re actually talking to or who has this information. Do what you have to do to protect yourself. Best Wishes, Tom P.S. That was kind of cool addressing a comment to another Tom! :)
