SunCommon® selects the best solar equipment on the market for quality, performance, longevity and warranty.

If our goal is to use the best solar equipment on the market, why don’t we use exclusively U.S. made solar equipment and panels? We strive to partner with local companies that share our values, but not at the expense of quality. Plus, no solar system is 100% made in America. The companies we work with are an important part of who we are and must meet our high standards so we can better protect our customers. This level of consistency is simply not available among companies that do more of their manufacturing in the U.S.

 

The three things we keep in mind when selecting our solar partners are:
  1. Can their equipment withstand Vermont weather and climate for years to come?
  2. Are they strong and reliable enough to honor their warranties?
  3. Is the company local, U.S. based, or are they mission-driven in a way that aligns with our own?

Sunpower Company Logo Elite Dealer

SunPower

We purchase the majority of our panels from SunPower. They make the most powerful, efficient, and highest quality solar panels in the world at facilities in several countries overseas. This increased efficiency means the same roof space can generate up to 30% more power than with standard solar panels. Their panels have an expected useful lifespan of more than 40 years, and their 25-year warranty (15 years longer than traditional warranties) means that your panels will produce more power for longer than any other panel on the market. SunPower is an American company employing 1,500 U.S.-based workers whom we are proud to support. They’ve been selling solar for over four decades, and they’ve got the staying power to be there for our customers for many years to come.
Sunpreme Company Logo

SunPreme

SunPreme, based out of Silicon Valley with some facilities overseas, produces the dual-sided panels we use on our solar canopies and on some ground-mounted systems. These beautifully designed panels are unlike any other on the market because they collect sunshine from above as well as reflected light from below, providing you with even more power. This works especially well for those of us in Vermont since our snowy winters mean lots of reflected light.

Mitsubishi Heat Pumps

Solar heating and cooling is quiet and comfortable. This Energy Star smart technology keeps your home consistently warm and cozy through the winter — and dry and cool all summer long. It’s clean since allergens and dust are filtered out as the heated or cooled air is circulated in the house. Heat pumps have been around for a long time, but we haven’t used them here in the northern climate because they weren’t cold climate rated. Now, our Mitsubishi model is rated to function as low as -18 degrees to keep you warm on the coldest nights with guilt-free, solar-powered air conditioning on hot, muggy summer nights.
New Energy Works Timberframing Logo

New Energy Works

 

New Energy Works produces the gorgeous timber framing of our solar canopies. This U.S. company is over three decades old with nearly 100 employees, and is based out of Farmington, New York. Superb craftsmanship and care are reflected in their artful, efficient structures and environmentally responsible business practices. Our canopies are immensely strong and sturdy structures, making them the perfect foundation for decades of solar energy production.
Solaredge logo

SolarEdge

SolarEdge manufactures top-of-the-line inverters that turn the energy from your panels into electricity for your home. They are headquartered in Israel and have offices in 13 countries, including the United States. Their corporate vision includes making clean energy affordable, accessible, and widespread.

IronRidge is a California-based company that supplies racking and hardware that hold our solar systems together. They’ve been supplying solar installers with innovative products for nearly 20 years. Their mission is to “make solar stronger,” and they do that by rigorously testing their products in extreme environments and always ensuring they’re in compliance with engineering and building codes.

Green Mountain Electric Supply

GMES is our supplier of all things electrical: boxes, conduits, wiring, you name it. A family-owned company founded in Newport, Vermont over a half-century ago, GMES continues to operate locally with a focus on quality, innovation, and sustainability.
I was very, very satisfied with the entire process. The install went smoothly and the crew was friendly. As someone who works in the business, I can say the work was of great quality. When an issue was brought up, the crew was responsive and is going to take care of it.
Seth Morrisette, RichmondSolar since 2015
We had our heat pump installed today. I want to mention that the installers were great, and the heat pump is fantastic!
Eric, Fairfax Solar since 2014.
The people at SunCommon made the process so understandable and transparent I felt no qualms about proceeding. The actual site evaluation and installation was nearly magical – things happened on time, quickly, and with less fuss and muss than I could ever have imagined. The results are all that I hoped for. I couldn’t recommend this organization and the wonderful people I met through it more strongly. I am glad I chose to work with SunCommon.
Hilary Hatch, Leicester Solar since 2014
