New Mexico attorney general goes after rooftop solar company

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Attorney General's Office is accusing a residential rooftop solar provider that operates in more than 20 states of deceptive sales and marketing practices.

Attorney General Hector Balderas filed a lawsuit Thursday in state court against Vivint Solar, Inc. over claims that the company was engaging in a pattern of unfair and unconscionable business practices, fraud and racketeering.

Prosecutors say in some cases, the titles to customers' homes have been clouded as a result of the company's power purchase agreements. They say Vivint has thousands of customers in the state.

Vivint said in a statement that it does not believe the lawsuit has merit and that the company's practices comply with applicable law.

The company has reached settlements in other states over similar complaints.
