Steps to Solar

SunBug makes it easy to transition to solar power. Here’s how we do it:

Provide a Free Solar Evaluation

We will come to your home and conduct a complete evaluation to determine if solar is right for you.  Fill out our Free Solar Assesment form, and we will contact you with further information.

Design an Attractive, Effective Solar System

We’ll design a solar system that takes into account all technical and aesthetic considerations.  For many homeowners, a solar solution has to both work effectively and be attractive.  At SunBug, we design arrays that take into account all sight-lines and issues of symmetry.  We want to make your home solar system look as good as it works. 

Generate a Detailed Proposal

We’ll present a detailed proposal customized to your site.  Our proposals include full system cost, all applicable rebates and incentives, specific installation schedule, and expected return on investment. 

Process all Incentives and Permits

If SunBug’s solution works for you, you'll sign a contract and pay a deposit.  We will take care of processing all permits and rebates with applicable municipal and state agencies.  

Install System

Depending on the time of year and the speed of permit processing, we’ll install your home solar system in as few as three months from contracting.  The actual on-site installation will take only two or three days.  Most of that installation time is spent on your roof or in your basement with very little disruption to your home.  Our professional team will work with respect for your home and property.

Flip the Switch

We’ll turn on your home solar system, thoroughly verify all components are operating properly, and show you how it works.

Monitor and Maintain your system

Once you’ve installed with us you’ll become a member of our SunSpotter program, so you have peace of mind that your system is fully operational.

Free Solar Assessment

Have SunBug Solar do a no-cost assessment of your home to find out if solar could work for you.  We'll do a complete analysis, factoring in the specifics of your site, the available state and federal incentives, the projected energy savings, and all of the different financing options. Just fill out this simple form.


We design and install projects across the Bay State.
