Refer-A-Friend Terms & Conditions

This agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) which apply to participation in the Cal Paso Solar Electric Refer-A-Friend Program (the “Refer-A-Friend”). Participation in the Refer-A-Friend Program is considered acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

Cal Paso Solar Electric reserves the right to both change these Terms and Conditions from time to time and/or to terminate the Refer-A-Friend Program at any time and without prior notice. As such, Participants (as defined below) should check these Terms and Conditions from time to time for changes. The failure by Cal Paso Solar to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

PARTICIPANT ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: The Refer-A-Friend Program is open to all individuals: customers and non-customers of Cal Paso Solar Electric (the “Participant” or “Participants”). By submitting the name of an individual interested in becoming a Cal Paso Solar Electric customer (the “Referee”) for participation in the Refer-A-Friend Program, each Participant agrees to the Terms and Conditions set forth herein.

Cal Paso Solar Electric reserves the right to modify, limit or restrict participation in the Refer-A-Friend Program to any person at any time for any reason and without notice. Participant eligibility shall be determined by Cal Paso Solar Electric in its sole discretion.

REFEREE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Each Referee must own his or her residence or commercial property, sign a Home Improvement Contract with Cal Paso Solar Electric, and be legally capable of entering into contracts (the “Eligibility Requirements”). If a Referee does not meet one or more Eligibility Requirements, the Participant shall not be eligible for or earn a Referral Reward (defined below) for the unqualified Referee.

REFERRAL SUBMISSION RULES: To be eligible for the Refer-A-Friend Program, a Participant must submit the Referee’s First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, and Email Address (the “Required Information”) to Cal Paso Solar Electric by either submitting the contact form at calpasosolar.com/refer-a-friend.html or calling Cal Paso Solar Electric’s Sales Department at (805) 239-4851.

All Required Information must be accurate and sufficient such that Cal Paso Solar Electric may prepare a quotation for service to the Referee’s residence or commercial property.

A Participant must submit the Referee’s Required Information to Cal Paso Solar Electric prior to either the date the Referee first contacts Cal Paso Solar Electric to discuss a quotation for service, or the date he or she is first contacted by a Cal Paso Solar Electric representative. A Referee may not have been referred to Cal Paso Solar Electric previously, as reflected in Cal Paso Solar Electric’s records. If a Referee is referred by multiple Participants, the first Participant to submit the Required Information, based on the date and time of the submission (as determined by Cal Paso Solar Electric in its sole discretion) shall be the only Participant entitled to receive a Referral Reward.

REFERRAL REWARDS: A Participant who refers a Referee who meets the Referee Eligibility Requirements, signs a Cal Paso Solar Electric Home Improvement Contract within one (1) year of the date of the referral and pays all fees associated with the solar system installation, shall receive a referral reward of $500.00 to be issued in a form to be determined in the sole discretion of Cal Paso Solar Electric.

The Participant shall receive the Referral Reward within thirty (30) days from the date that the solar system installation has been completed on the Referee’s residence or commercial property, provided that the Referee has submitted all payments associated with the installation.

Referral Rewards may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to the Participant. Participants are solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability. If Cal Paso Solar Electric’s delivery of a Referral Reward will require Cal Paso Solar Electric to issue Participant a 1099, Cal Paso Solar Electric’s obligation to make the Referral Reward shall be conditioned upon receipt from Participant of any required tax documentation necessary to issue the 1099.
