Steve approached SunBug looking for a solution to tackle his home’s sizeable electric bill. Upon visiting his home, it became clear SunBug needed to design a system that looked as good as it performed. After presenting three PV options of different sizes, Steve settled on one that would take advantage of multiple roof slopes to generate nearly all of his electricity.

Steve's first plunge into solar was with a 9 kW system with an output of over 11,000 kilowatt hours per year, covering over 70% of the home’s consumption. 

“The performance of the system has been probably a little better then they had indicated. My electric bill last month was $10.  And this was during a month when we did not have a lot of very sunny days. While it is difficult to make direct comparisons due to variations in weather, temperature, etc. I can tell you that the bill for the same period a year ago was $210.”

After diving in and learning more about solar incentive programs, Steve had SunBug expand the size of his system to over 11 kW to cover his remaining roof space. His system now meets 100% of his annual consumption needs.

“I am so happy with their work I just had SunBug add 10 additional panels.”

“Whereas most contractors don’t seem to care about the relationship, these guys seem to nurture it.  I have to say this is one of the few experiences I have had with a contractor where they have outperformed my expectations.”
