Submission + - Free Solar coming soon or is CitizenRE vaporware?

AmericanInKiev writes: CitizenRE is a new Multi-level-marketing concept (or Pyramid Scheme depending on the reader) which promises to install Solar Energy on your roof for FREE. In short you agree to pay the same price for energy as today, and CitizenRE will install a solar system on a rental basis. If this sounds too good to be true, bear in mind they have over 7,000 "customers", 700 "affiliates", but have so far failed to install even a single system. Is this celebrity-backed pyramid scheme the "Moses" that will lead the chosen ones to the promised land and free them from the bonds of evil energy companies and solar installers? or does CitizenRE mark the entrance of faith-based solutions to mitigate the collective guilt of fossil fuel. You decide.
