City of St. Helena Vote Unanimously to TERMINATE Sol-Ed for NON PERFORMANCE (Marinwood's Solar Company)
Above is the portion of the November 10, 2015 Council Meeting where they terminated Sol-Ed
The staff in St. Helena was on top of the Sol-Ed SEED contract just like the one Marinwood CSD signed and recommended termination for non performance. The staff report reports serious problems and it is a RED FLAG for Marinwood CSD which approved an estoppel at the December 8. 2015 meeting.
I am very saddened that Marinwood CSD did not do its due diligence. Apparently, a lawyer never looked at the Estoppel agreement and did not look into C2 Beta Holdings who Sol-Ed assigned the contract. Jeff Naylor was the only CSD board member who voted against the contract.
I suggest that the Marinwood CSD make every effort contain the potential loss immediately and at the appropriate time consider a solar project with a leading solar company with a proven performance record.

Sol-Ed has made contracts with Mill Valley and San Rafael too. I do not think any of the systems have been built to date.
