Solar Partnerships

In November, Sunbug Solar officially became a ReVision Energy company. This acquisition is really exciting as it will enable us to bring solar and solar technologies (such as heat pumps, battery storage, and EV charging) to all of Massachusetts. Because Sunbug and ReVision are both Certified B Corps, mission-aligned, and have a long history of working together through Amicus Solar Cooperative, this felt like a natural fit for both ReVision and Sunbug employees. But like any business initiative, it comes with its own set of challenges, opportunities, and logistics to sort out.  

In this blog column we’re taking you behind the scenes to showcase how two major New England solar companies join forces to more effectively fight the climate crisis.  

Winter 2024

As the new year starts, we've taken some big steps. Sunbug residential solar designers (now officially onboarded as part of the ReVision SDS team) are designing and quoting systems within ReVision's tools. The design team also officially transitioned to email addresses. 

Now that the residential team has fully switched to ReVision, Sunbug's commercial team is making the switch. ReVision's commercial business development team is helping train the Sunbug crew in our software systems and processes. 

Sunbug's Master Electrician, Ken Carter, has worked closely with one of ReVision's Master Electricians, Sam Pillsbury, to move all electrical permitting over to Sam's license; all permitting is now being pulled in one location, increasing efficiency. 

Sunbug on TV!
