I sold a deal for $60,000 and set up ESS with an ENORMOUS account. The client paid the $60K in full up front. Peter Stein's "staff" screwed up the delivery multiple times. The product was installed by 11/15/2015. So, the client paid in full AND the product was...

Review in Utility category from South Padre Island, Texas

I really wanted to give peter stein & his company a favorable review, BUT they have failed to live up to their promises and warranty. 1) it took over a year for installation, I had to pay their contracted electrician to finish the job. 2) the sales people that represented the company were let go, presumably because of the issues with this sale, there was zero on site follow up. 3) promises of replacement bulbs never materialized. I highly recommend steering clear of Peter Stein and any derivative of Energy Saving Solutions. I'm sure he will respond to this, but facts are facts and not standing behind your sales department or warranty is shameful. Mark Haggenmiller Padre Island Brewing Co.

I worked with Stein in the '90s when he was running a failing internet company. That was after his career as a boilerroom stock broker He used to regale us with stories of how much he got out of people. He's not a person I would ever do business with again.

Not a surprise at all Peter Stein is a scam artist. He steals the commissions and keeps them for himself.

He also sells a bogus warranty that doesn't exist.

I have heard of a client that installed lights and almost half of them did not work. They called for the warranty and the warranty did not exist!

Not surprising at all. Have heard from a few sources about contractors not being paid even after services were performed.

Also heard about ESS not paying for the warranty even though it tells clients there is some type of "lifetime" warranty.

Agreed - I make a six figure income with Energy Saving Solutions. Peter Stein is extremely helpful and very accessible for a busy CEO.

Energy Saving Solutions ( and in particular - Peter Stein) have helped me close some very big deals. As a distributor you have to just get out there and introduce the zero up front cost LED Lighting product to commercial customers. At least three out of ten proposals I have created end up becoming a customer.

With average commissions of $30,000+ its a great time to be in the LED lighting business.

Complete scam. Liar. Former employees have even shared that Stein swindled the elderly and handicapped people.

Energy savings solutions is a scam

They got $4000.00 from me before I decided I wanted out. Now they have me in collection for another $2500.00, and I haven't made a dime from their business ideas. I first signed up with one guy and when I called back to speak to him he's gone. I had talked to three different people after I signed up and they all was gone within a month. I started talking to potential customers and when I called in to talk to someone and couldn't find anybody to talk to for a month. I finally got an answer and was told that they had some rearrangement going on and he was the only person handling everything and can I give him another chance because they were so far behind in completing orders of the LED bulbs. I dint know if their business is any better now than when I was with them, but they were a disappointment to me.

Scam. The loans are a scam and fraud as well.

Won't pay out a commission even AFTER the client pays in full and installs.

Not sure they even pay for the warranty meaning they sell product fraudulently. Complete fraud.

Same here. Except once we finally got through to Peter and not his "assistant" who is actually a call center, we found out he fired all his office staff.

Kristy who was always helpful to us that we just spoke with in July, by November GONE, only person to answer questions is Peter who never hardly ever returns emails, never answers his phone, unless you as you have an appointment with a big company like Toyota then after 4 calls he responds to you.

Zero support that was promised, never got the IPad was promised but still wants his money. For over a year when we called always got a new person who handles that

Often times when a prospective distributor has the DESIRE but not the financial means to pay for LED Lighting sample inventory and get started in the LED Business, Energy Saving Solutions helps them get started by financing the cost of inventory or we give distributor considerably less inventory to launch their career in the LED lighting business. Our office is located in a professional office park along with 64 other professional businesses Apparently this person never worked for ESS or stepped foot in our office otherwise they would have seen a busy and successful business.

Energy saving solutions is not a scam.

Peter Stein is not a scam artist. He markets the forever LED Light bulbs and he offers a "business opportunity" which does cost money as most of them do. It does take money to make money. But for the small investment a top producing dealer can profit well over 250k a year with this business opp. It is a shame that this post is up defaming his character. He is honest and up front. I don't know of any high caliber serious producing business that cost 500 to get in...the poster of this complaint just probably didn't have enough money.

This is interesting. WHY are the posters on pissedconsumer.com or ripoff.com that are in support of, or saying that ESS is not a scam, not posting with their REAL NAME?

Why are there NO real dealers or references to speak with? Where is this $250K number for earnings coming from? The PAST AND CURRENT business model and income model has been the recruiting of dealers across the country on craigslist. If the books were to be investigated, where does the ESS income come from?

Is is selling lights? Is it selling dealerships for $13K? Is is selling Independent Sales for $470? Is it the monthly fees they charge to the independents and dealers?

The case studies on their website are YES companies or facilities that have changed to LED, but NOT with ESS. Just research, thoroughly ask for references, google those references, google their dealers and contact them for a reference. Ask for details in writing of what exactly you will receive for your $13K or $470 AND WHEN you will receive the items? What are the terms?

If they will not provide you with information BEFORE you have to sign or give them ANY personal information, ssn or credit card or ach information and you are not comfortable, then maybe you should go with your gut. Go into the opportunity fully aware and IF you feel uncomfortable then do not proceed or get your questions answered. Just remember it is YOUR reputation if you introduce your contacts, clients, colleagues to YOUR independent business of selling ESS lights. Your contacts will be upset with YOU IF anything is not true or if there is a problem with the product, installation warranty, etc.

Any business requires due diligence! Good luck in your business quest.

I totally agree there not a scam I've done my research and I love what they have being doing. Energy Saving Solutions has made a name for themselves.

I think they are a force to be rekon with in the LED Lighting industry because they have the most advance lighting technolgy on the planet and here it is 2014. Thumbs up to these guys I really wish them well go green is the motto.

SCAM. The warranty is bogus because Stein doesn't pay for it.

He won't pay commissions. SCAM.

That loan scam he has with UGA is loan fraud.
