Custom Design

All of our solar designs are designed specifically to fit your home. We design for both composition & tile roofs.




Installations are completed by trained professionals who care for your home as if it were their own.

Residential Solar 

Installing solar panels onto your home not only reduces your overhead, but it also increases the value of your home and gives you money back in tax credits.

If your electric bill averages $150 a month - your home needs solar.


Tier 1 Solar Panels

We use top of the line, high quality solar panels that come with a 25 year warranty. Not only that, but because we’re a family owned and operate company, you know we’re going to stick around to service your solar panels if they every need it. You can trust in the quality of our work and the quality of the solar panels we use.


Roofing for Solar Panels

We go the extra mile in craftsmanship. To ensure that your roof won’t leak, we remove the tile on the section of roof your solar panels are being installed. Then we lay down new composition tile in that area, install the panels and then replace the tiles around that area so you have a brand new roof and you have a guarantee it’ll never leak. We don’t cut corners.



Financing is available for both residential and commercial solar panels. Take that money you’re giving to your local energy company and invest it back into your home. It just makes sense.


The Benefits of Solar Energy


Property Value

Homes with solar panel systems installed are typically valued and sold at prices above other similar homes in the same area.

Solar Tax Credit

The Federal Solar Tax Credit allows homeowners to deduct thirty percent of the cost of solar panel installation.

Environmentally Friendly

Harnessing solar energy is a free, natural and an endless resource - and it’s not going anywhere.


Residential Microgrid

Share the power with a residential microgrid. A residential microgrid typically runs connected to the grid, but with the option to run off grid if needed.

Residential Battery Backup

If the power goes out, your lights stay on. Store energy from your solar panels and avoid power outages.

Off the Grid

Are you looking to go off the grid? We’re one of the only local companies that can handle an off-grid project.

Commercial Solar

Reduce overhead costs by installing solar panels on your commercial location. Keep more of your profits so you can invest it back into your business.


Demand Mitigation

Electric companies measure commercial energy use in 15 minute intervals and they base the rate you pay on your highest 15 minute interval of energy use. This is called a “demand charge,” and it hikes up your overhead costs. Going solar means never having to pay a demand charge again.


Batteries & Peak Shaving

If your commercial building doesn’t have the right roof or location for solar panels, you can still avoid demand charges with battery installation. The battery is charged at night when energy rates are lower. Use the stored energy during peak daylight hours when energy rates are higher. This is called “peak shaving.”


Return on Investment

Commercial locations draw large amounts of energy. Solar panels cut down on overhead costs and put money back in your pocket. They not only pay for themselves overtime, but after that they only save you more money by avoiding large monthly energy bills. That’s a great ROI.

Generations of Craftsmanship

We’ve been in the solar industry for over 13 years. Before that, our family owned and operated Rugg Lumber Company which first opened it’s doors in 1929.

The Rugg family has been in the Inland Empire for generations, and we don’t plan on going anywhere.

The Rugg family is among the founding families of Upland, CA. So, you could say we’ve made a home here. Our family business began as a lumber yard, and through the generations we’ve grown and expanded with each generation adding something more and going a little farther than the previous. We service the entire Inland Empire, as well as surrounding cities and counties.

We’re proud of our family history here, proud of our work and proud to serve our community. From woodwork, painting, electrical to solar, we cover a wide gambit because we’ve just been around for so dang long. You can bet that our work is guaranteed, and we’re just a quick call away if you ever have a need.

Rugg’s Construction is licensed and insured. We are a team of experienced contractors with knowledge passed down from generations.


We’ll only work with the best materials available and provide a 1 year guarantee on all labor. We never compromise quality for time and give our clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives. We strive for honest customer service.
