Our COVID-19 Response

Updated March 22, 2022

Happily, the strict protocols we adopted prevented any spread of COVID-19 within SunCommon. We closely followed the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control as well as the states of New York and Vermont – and there was zero contagion on the job. We’ll stay vigilant as we navigate the ongoing situation.     

Happily, the strict protocols we adopted prevented any spread of COVID-19 within SunCommon. We closely followed the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control as well as the states of New York and Vermont – and there was zero contagion on the job.

With the widespread availability of immunizations against the virus, our people are eager to get that protection and resume the best of how we lived before. Building back better is the goal, as we’ve all learned some positive lessons during this long period of hardship. We had to pivot a bunch of our activities to virtual, and can maintain the best of those for both business efficiency and ease for our customers. Our folks who work from a desk can split their time between the office and remotely – enjoying the benefits of reduced commute time, less transportation expense and pollution, flexible time with their families — even as we come together in the office sometimes to collaborate in teams, advance our skills and just plain connect as colleagues and humans.

We’ll stay vigilant as we navigate the ongoing situation.

Great! We would love to connect with you! We now offer virtual “visits” with our Solar Home Advisors to discuss your clean energy options. As always, you can reach out by phone, email, or through SunCommon.com to get answers to any of your questions along the way. 

Waiting for a home evaluation or installation?

SunCommon is following all state and federal guidance. Currently, with the high vaccination rates in VT and NY, there are no COVID-19 related restrictions in place. However, if you would feel more comfortable if our Evaluators and Install Crews wore masks when interacting with you, please just let them know.

VERMONT: As of June 14, 2021, more than 80% of eligible Vermonters have received at least the first dose of the vaccine. With this milestone, Governor Phil Scott has lifted all COVID-19 related restrictions and requirements for businesses.

NEW YORK: As of June 24, 2021, more than 70% of eligible New Yorkers have received their first dose of the vaccine. With this milestone, New York State’s health guidance and industry specific guidelines are now optional across commercial and social settings.

Waiting for a home evaluation or installation?

In light of the recent wave of COVID-19 cases across our region brought on by the Delta variant, we have modified our policies regarding staff-customer interactions:

These decisions were not made lightly, and while we were able to avoid them for the past 16 months, the rapid spread of the dangerous Delta variant has proven that business as usual will not resume until more serious measures are taken by all. As an organization responsible for the health and safety of so many, we must do everything within our power to minimize the spread of this deadly disease, and to protect our employees, their families, and you, our beloved customers. We realize this may be an adjustment for some of you, and we thank you in advance for doing your part.

Waiting for a home evaluation or installation?

  • As of August 2021, SunCommon employees have been fully vaccinated to safeguard themselves, their families AND our customers. And while CDC guidance no longer urges mask and distancing among those who are fully vaccinated and in low risk areas like the Hudson Valley and Vermont, we of course will wear masks and maintain safe distances when near any customer who requests we do so. We get that some families have children too young to vaccinate, or have immunocompromised or elders near or just plain concerned. So please let us know what precautions to take to provide you the comfort and safety you deserve. 
  • Our employees reserve the right to not enter a customer’s home, business, or property if they feel unsafe.

These decisions were not made lightly, and as an organization responsible for the health and safety of so many, we must do everything within our power to minimize the spread of this deadly disease, and to protect our employees, their families, and you, our beloved customers. We thank you in advance for doing your part.
