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.

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.

Sun up to sun down, that thing is making electricity. We’ve had a lot of good months. Basically the sun is powering my entire house!
Eric and Miranda BeckerGeorgia, VT
We took a year’s worth of our bills and thought, “Well, we can put up enough to cover what we use or pretty close.” And everything just fell in line, it was a no brainer.
Jerry MillerWaitsfield, VT
If you are concerned about global warming and about the depletion of our natural carbon resources, adding solar electric to your home, not only is financially feasible right now, but it is the right thing to do.
Don MayerWarren, VT
“We moved to Vermont to be with our grandchildren, and going solar was a part of that. We wanted to stop using fossil fuels. Everyone we worked with at SunCommon was great. From the people came out to do the visit, to the people who put it in- each person was helpful. If you are worried about polluting the air, go solar!”
The Cooper’s and Abbey (the dog) Bradford, VT
Heat and humidity building - except in my house! Heat pump in cooling mode and solar panels working to keep running my meter BACKWARDS! I'm so glad I did this.
Joanne RoseLincoln, VT
I underestimated the amount of euphoria my solar would give me!
Sarah WylieBristol, VT
Going solar was the easiest home improvement project I’ve made.
Matt LewisBarre, VT
I support solar in Vermont. I believe it is important to pursue all kinds of renewable energy that do not rely on fossil fuels. I understand the latest draft rule would put the brakes on some kinds of solar projects.That makes me very sad for my children and grandchildren.I hope you can make it so Vermonters can adopt solar and other renewables more quickly in Vermont.I strongly believe it will prepare us for the future when fossil fuels run low (and eventually out) and will help the global warming situation.
Debbie Fiske Montpelier, VT
My house will go from solely-consuming electricity to being a producer of the electricity I use, and at a cheaper rate than Green Mountain Power can supply it from a variety of energy sources. This will further reduce my family’s carbon and energy consumption footprint for an already Efficiency Vermont-certified house. The other benefits include household money-saved, and the community benefit that Green Mountain Power does not have to acquire additional energy from more costly and polluting sources.

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.
