Buglet Solar Services and Specifics
Buglet Solar offers various products and services as follows:
Solar Panels offered by Buglet Solar
Buglet Solar offers high-quality solar despite being a low-cost company.
Specific Solar Panels Offered
The company has not publicly indicated the solar panels they use and has limited customer reviews about the same. But from their previous projects, the company has used monocrystalline solar panels. These are high-performing solar panels with an efficiency rate of 20%, which means that they convert more megawatts per hour than other solar panels. Also, these solar panels have a longer durability of up to 35 years. Their only downside is that they are expensive. Despite this, we highly recommend monocrystalline.
Specific Types of Solar Offered
Buglet Solar offers grid-tied and off-grid systems depending on the customer’s needs and preferences. A grid-tied system is a solar system connected to the power grid. It’s ideal for urban areas with stable electricity. Off-grid is an all-season system that uses batteries for backup. However, this system is more expensive to install and maintain because of its complicated backup system.
Installation costs and process
Buglet Solar does not have many testimonials, but one customer reported that the company offers affordable prices compared to the quality of its products. Also, Buglet Solar’s last project cost below $50,000, meaning it works with low-budget customers too. However, the customer didn’t report if he had paid the exact quoted prices.
Although low-cost, Buglet Solar doesn’t compromise on quality.
Even better, Buglet Solar offers financial options to customers unable to pay upfront costs. The company is a certified partner of the RENU solar loan program that offers low-rate loans for solar customers in Colorado. Additionally, their solar panels qualify for a 30% federal government tax credit.
Overall, we cautiously recommend customers for their services given that the company offers cheap services and has no reviews to support its history.
Buglet Solar is a legitimate company with important accreditations to support it. They include:
- Buglet Solar is registered in Colorado with a verifiable and active license.
- The company is transparent about its services and location, providing its contact details like address, email, and phone number.
- The company is a Colorado Solar and Storage Association member headed by Bart, an experienced solar installer and NABCEP-certified contractor.
Our experts view the company as a legitimate service provider but advise customers to take caution before working with Buglet Solar due to a lack of proof from customer testimonials.
It’s unclear whether Buglet Solar has a customer-centered and flexible schedule because the company does not state its maintenance policy or warranties, nor does it have customer feedback about maintenance. However, one customer reported that the team is great to work with.
Therefore we would advise customers who want to work with Buglet Solar to proceed with caution.
The SolarEmpower View
In summary, Buglet Solar seems to offer quality services at cheaper costs. Also, the company is legitimate with an active license. But there’s little proof to support its claims of offering the best value per price due to few customer testimonials. So we do not recommend it.
