Refer a Friend Program
Created June 1, 2020
Last updated June 5, 2020
Open to any United States resident (the “Participant”) who (i) sends an invitation to participate in the Palmetto Refer A Friend Program (the “Program”) to a potential customer, (ii) submits the potential customer’s First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, and Email (the “Required Information”) directly to Palmetto, and (iii) can be verified. Participant agrees to the terms of the Program and to the terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) which constitute the entire understanding and agreement between Palmetto and Participant and supersede all other agreements, whether written or oral. The Program may not be combined with any other referral promotions issued by Palmetto. Participation is also excluded for Palmetto employees or family members or those residing in the same household as Palmetto employees or family members. In the case where two Participants refer the same new customer, the first referral received by Palmetto will receive 100% of the compensation. This period of exclusivity lasts for 30 days after the receipt of a referral, after which a new referral can be submitted, and the customer submitting that new referral will receive 100% of the compensation. Palmetto reserves the right to modify, limit, or restrict participation in the Program to any person at any time for any reason and without notice. Participant eligibility shall be determined by Palmetto in its sole discretion.
Eligible participants who meet all requirements shall receive compensation in the form of a check or other equivalent payment in the amount of $500 (five hundred US dollars) payable within 60 days of completed installation of the solar power system. The value of the referral reward may be taxable income to you, and we may be required to send you a Form 1099-MISC and file it with the IRS. You are responsible for any federal or state taxes resulting from the Referral reward.
This Program applies to all referrals received after the program’s start date of June 1, 2020 and will continue until Palmetto ends it, which could come at any time without notification to those participating.
