Contact 5 investigates broken promises. Thousands of Floridians applied for and were approved for thousands of dollars in state rebates if they installed solar power systems in their homes and businesses.
Many consumers took advantage of the offer, paying tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket for the systems and expecting to be partially reimbursed. So why haven't they received all the money they were promised? In fact, the Contact 5 Investigators discover the state is responsible for $26 million worth of broken solar promises.
Find out how this happened, and if anything is being done to fulfill the state's promise. Only on NewsChannel 5 Monday at 11.
