We are proud to announce that SunBug Solar has been accepted into Pearl’s prestigious Contractor Advantage Network. Working with an elite network of highly-skilled contractors, agents, and brokers as well as savvy homeowners who prioritize health, energy-efficiency, and low home operating costs, Pearl-certified homes can command a 5% sales price premium when marketed correctly. 

SunBug Solar creates positive environmental and social impact by exemplifying thir core values of responsiveness, resourcefulness, and reliability with their customers, within the industry, and among their teammates. SunBug is Massachusetts-owned and operated, and was founded in 2009. SunBug Solar is a member of the elite Amicus Solar Cooperative.

“Only a small number of elite contractors with a record of high quality work and customer service are accepted into the network,” said Pearl President and CEO, Cynthia Adams. “SunBug Solar is a perfect fit, and we’re delighted to work with them to help consumers capture the full value of solar and efficiency improvements in their homes.

As a Pearl Contractor Advantage contractor, SunBug Solar’s high efficiency improvements can now receive Pearl Certification. This recognition provides the homeowner a detailed record of a home’s high-performing features, including efficiency assets such as heating and cooling systems, insulation, ventilation, and smart thermostats.

When marketed correctly, Pearl Certifications add 5% or more to a home’s sale price, and solar installations can add an average $4 per watt of installed photovoltaic capacity to the sales price.

“SunBug is thrilled be an early adopter of the Pearl Certification Program within our industry,” said Co-Owner and Vice President of Marketing & Residential Sales, Ben Mayer. “As a leading full-service solar energy supplier in Massachusetts, homeowners regularly ask us to help them value the new energy producing asset on their roof.  Now, using Pearl, we can do that in a simple way for every one of our clients that delivers a robust and powerful certification package.”

Pearl Certification was founded by experts in energy efficiency and residential construction to help homeowners make their homes more comfortable, healthy, and energy-efficient. Pearl also works closely with real estate agents and appraisers so the energy-efficiency improvements are visible at the time of sale, adding value to the home.

We are excited to be able to provide SunBug’s customers with a Pearl Certification Report. We believe that our partnership is one that will bring the Massachusetts region healthy, comfortable, and energy-savings benefits for years to come.
