We have received notice that the MA Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is warning customers/consumers about a phony “solar developer” scam.
The caller will appear to be from the MA DPU main telephone number (617-305-3500) on caller ID systems. The caller may inform you that you owe money to the DPU (or other entity):this is also a phone scam. You are advised not to provide the caller with any personal information and immediately hang-up.
You are encouraged to report the scam to the DPU’s Consumer Division at (617) 737-2836 or 1-877-886-5066 (toll free).
