Bailey Designed Engineering Pty Ltd's sole director Mark Bailey has been disqualified from managing a corporation for five years.
On 2 April, Ballarat Magistrates' Court disqualified Mr Bailey from managing a corporation until 1 July 2019.
Consumer Affairs Victoria commenced action against the renewable energy company and Mr Bailey for breaches of the Australian Consumer Law, in February 2014. This followed allegations that the company failed to supply goods and services as ordered, and that some supplied goods and services were not of acceptable quality.
Until its final decision, the court had restrained Mr Bailey and the company from accepting any payment from customers before supplying promised goods and services.
In separate proceedings on 26 February, the Supreme Court of Victoria ordered that the company be wound up.
As well as disqualifying Mr Bailey, the Magistrates' Court made orders relating to the sale, supply, delivery or installation of wind turbines, solar energy equipment, water pumps or related items.
Until 1 July 2024 Mr Bailey, his employees or agents must not request or accept:
- money or other consideration on deposit
- payment or other consideration before delivery or installation of the appliances or components
- any payment or other consideration before completing the promised services.
Mr Bailey must also publish public notices about the orders and pay $8,666 in costs.
