This clean energy stuff is good, hard work.  Maybe it’s right for you.

We’re succeeding by celebrating creativity, collaboration, high energy, hard work, good play and acknowledging that we’ll each make mistakes and learn from them. We know impact. We know fun. Come do both with us.

Business as a Force for Good

A market solution to climate change, SunCommon is a Vermont public benefit corporation and a certified BCorp – committed to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.  And yeah, people here do come first.

Benefits

In addition to meaningful work, we provide for our people.  Since SunCommon supports single-payer health care, we pay 100% of health insurance premiums for our beloved employees and their families, and the deductibles too.  100% of dental insurance premiums for them and their families.  Paid time off and holidays. Contribution to retirement or student loans.  Short and long-term disability. Life insurance.  Profit-sharing.  Dog-friendly office. Private lactation room. You get the idea, our employees are the Company, so we care for our people.

We at Pointe of Praise Family Life Center believe that God created this good earth that we dwell on, and He has commissioned man to be responsible and take care of it. In fulfilling this obligation, we've asked SunCommon to build a Community Solar Array on our property in Kingston, NY. This will provide citizens of all economic standings access to solar power without having to install it on their own properties. NY State has set a goal to have 50% of our energy come from renewable sources by 2030. We are proud to be partners in making this happen.

Basically the sun is powering our entire house! Sun up to sun down, the canopy is making electricity. We run two heat pumps off of it, they’re just so great.

This worked out really well, especially with the newborn, whose body temperature gets super hot or super cold really easily. With forced hot air, you crank it, it goes, and then it finds its way out of the house quickly.
Miranda BeckerGeorgia, VT
Glad to be a very small part of the solar power revolution and it is a no-brainer from my point of view. Big fan of clean and green renewable energy these days!
Jim R.Ballston Spa, NY
SunCommon explained the process from start to finish. The best part is that they are local to me which meant even more. The entire company cares and will take care of you
Steve L.Rhinebeck, NY
During the entire process from deciding what type of system to go with through the final inspection, they were very accommodating and respectful of our needs. The people that work for SunCommon are probably the best contractors we have had work on our home.
Melissa & Ted S.Glenville, NY
Everyone at SunCommon was highly professional, polite, and helpful. All in all, quality people and a quality job.
Ben H.Milan, NY
Our panels were snow covered for most of our first winter after going solar, but because SunCommon sized our system correctly, we racked up enough credits during the year that we ended up only paying $25 for the year to the utility.

We, at the Citizens Foundation, have made a commitment to clean, affordable energy for our residents, businesses, and our own organization. We’ve asked SunCommon to build this community solar array on our property in Sugar Loaf to provide citizens with solar power without having to install it on their own. NY State has set a goal to have 50% of our energy come from renewable sources by 2030. We take that seriously and we’re proud to do our part to help that become a reality in Orange County. Please join us!
Nancy ProyectPresident of the Citizens Foundation
I’ve always wanted solar, like forever. We had probably 4 or 5 different estimates and it just seemed like SunCommon had the best warranty and protection. More established company behind it. It’s an investment so if you’re gonna put that much money into something you wanna make sure that how ever many years down the line somebody is gonna be there to fix it.

Transparency 

We bring everyone together each month for an All Company meeting — where we present open-book financials, reveal and discuss plans, celebrate business successes and admit shortcomings — so each employee knows what’s going on in their company and sees their role in our collective impact.  We cater lunch that day, so folks can spend time with each other – especially across teams to generate awareness and appreciation for the many roles and cool people here.

Clean Energy Digs

SunCommon operates out of energy-positive headquarters in Waterbury.  Our building has no furnace, so just doesn’t burn fossil fuel.  The solar panels on the roof and canopies provides all our energy, and then some which we provide to customers in the community.   Electric vehicle charging stations fuel employee cars, the EVs in the company fleet and warehouse forklifts.  Clean energy is happening, now.

Confidential Survey

We annually seek feedback from our employees on what’s working and how to serve them better. This includes benefits, training, work-life balance, the works.
