SunBug Solar is an approved installer in the Mass Solar Loan program, developed by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center to help Massachusetts residents to go solar. Through the approved financial instituations participating in the program, solar adopters can get a low-interest, fixed-rate loan to finance their solar PV system. One of the main advantages of the Mass Solar Loan program is the loan support it offers to income-qualified solar customers. Through its Income-Based Loan Support feature, the Mass Solar Loan will pay for a percentage (10% or 30%) of your loan principal. To see how you can qualify, please read about the Mass Solar Loan loan support incentives, here.
