Meet Denise Dean
When Denise ran into an old friend who mentioned she was going solar with SunCommon, Denise needed to hear the whole story. By the next day, Denise made a call to SunCommon and within a week, a SunCommon Advisor was on her doorstep. Next came installation and flipping the switch to solar energy! The process was so easy and enjoyable that Denise pursued the company to get a piece of the action and help other Vermonters go solar. From happy customer to SunCommon employee in just a few short, rewarding months!
What made you want to become SunCommon’s Chief Solar Guide?
I love working with people and I love the simple, clean nature of solar energy. It was the perfect fit! Combining my passion with my profession was an opportunity I couldn’t possibly pass up.
What is a typical day like for a solar guide?
Very busy! Solar Guides work with homeowners from the time they decide to go solar until their system is installed so we spend a lot of time staying in touch with them via phone and email. Homeowners are assigned a specific Guide to work with them through the entire process which helps build great relationships. A typical day might involve guiding them through a little bit of paperwork, answering questions about how the system works, letting them know what to expect during the installation and generally making sure their customer experience is awesome!
What excites you most about what we are doing as a company?
That SunCommon is really making a difference. We are offering an easy and affordable model for homeowners and the number of homes that have gone solar with us in just 2 years shows that it works. I am really excited to see what the Vermont solar landscape will look like 5 years from now!
What do you do when you are not at work?
I moved to Vermont to enjoy all it has to offer so I spend a lot of time outdoors skiing, hiking, running, gardening, biking and enjoying anything to do with snow! I’ve also tapped into Vermont’s amazing musical community and play a lot of music as well as see as much live music as possible.
What’s your favorite device to power?
My brain and my body! I try to lead a simple life with few devices but admit to loving my iPad.
