Wide Equipment Selection

Sundog Solar offers customers a wide array of solar panels and solar inverters to address existing energy needs and available budget, including panels from LG, Hanwha Q CELLS, Vikram Solar, Solaria, and REC Solar.

In addition to quality, expertly installed solar PV systems, Sundog Solar provides customers with solar battery solutions from LG Chem, Blue Planet, Rolls Surrette, Sonnen, and SimpliPhi Power. These devices not only integrate with roof-mounted, grid-tied systems, but also off-grid solar panel systems as well.

Sundog Solar also provides assistance to existing HVAC systems through its energy-efficient heat pumps and solar water heaters. Lastly, the company provides EV Charging solutions from ClipperCreek.

25-Year Performance Warranty

Sundog Solar is so confident that its solar energy systems are built to last, the company attaches a 25-year performance warranty to every solar installation. A power performance warranty ensures that the solar energy system will operate at peak efficiency and will not experience undue degradation throughout the panels’ 25-year lifespan.

NABCEP Certified

Sundog Solar employs solar professionals certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). This designation is given to solar technicians who have undergone advanced training on solar installation practices. Maine solar customers can trust that Sundog Solar will install their solar PV system according to industry standards.

In addition to purchasing a Sundog Solar system out-of-pocket, residential customers also have the following financing options available to them:

  • Solar Loans — 5-year and 12-year, zero-money down financing options for both solar panel systems and heat pumps
  • Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) — set price for solar energy without the financial burden of installing and maintaining the system

The Bad

  • Only Present in Maine
  • Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty

Only Present in Maine

Sundog Solar only operates in the state of Maine, which hosts nearly 60 other solar installers, and that number is growing. Customers comparing solar companies in Maine are encouraged to read verified Sundog Solar reviews to determine if this company’s services are right for them.

Undisclosed Workmanship Warranty

Although Sundog Solar provides a 25-year performance guarantee and its solar equipment warranties range between 10 and 25 years, the company has not disclosed its workmanship or labor warranty, which is designed to protect the system against errors caused during the installation process.

While the majority of solar companies attach 10-year workmanship warranties to their solar panel systems, leading companies set their service warranties for up to 25 years.

The Bottom Line

Sundog Solar installs high-quality solar panel systems along with so many other home upgrades, including electric vehicle charging stations, backup batteries, hot water heaters, and heat pumps.

Although the company’s workmanship warranty has not yet been disclosed, its NABCEP certification is endorsement enough that the system will experience few if any undue malfunctions. Maine homeowners and business owners interested in working with a local solar expert are encouraged to reach out to Sundog Solar and obtain a free quote.

Sandra Powell Waterville, ME

Sundog Solar installed several solar systems in my neighborhood. They did a good job cleaning up, and they seem to take safety seriously. I also hired them to fix my solar system (which they didn't install). It's running great now but I wished I had hired them to install my system.
