The full contents of the suspected fraudulent (phishing / scamming) e-mail appear below:
Obama Has Done it Again: On Dec 31, 2016 Solar Incentives Will be Phased Out!
Warning: Do not pay your next energy bill until you read this…
This is one simple truth your power company doesn’t want you to know: There is a policy put into effect by President Barack Obama, set to expire on December 31, 2016 that qualifies homeowners who live in specific ZIP codes to be eligible for $1000’s of government funding to install solar panels. Has you power company told you that?

I, Diane, have the following thoughts/comments on this suspected fraudulent email message from “Solar Savings”:
I still cannot decide if this sender is spamming or phishing or just plain downright DUMB? Who in their right mind would reference something that has clearly happened in the PAST to continue trying to sell something.
