Clean Energy Digs & Fleet

SunCommon operates from energy-positive headquarters in Waterbury, Vermont and Rhinebeck, New York. Our buildings have no furnace and don’t burn fossil fuel. The solar panels atop the buildings provide all our energy to electrify, heat and cool these facilities. Electric vehicle charging stations provide free fuel for employee cars, and we’ve made a pledge to only procure Electric Vehicles for any application available – having electrified our sedan fleet for now and eagerly awaiting pollution-free trucks.
