About Us



WELCOME! 
SunCommon is a Benefit Corporation that is fueled by the belief that everyone has the right to a healthy environment and safer world.  Energy from the sun can power our lives and build vibrant communities. So we’re tearing down the barriers to clean energy and using our business as a force for good.

ABOUT THE BUSINESS
In May 2018, SunCommon and Hudson Solar joined forces for good – to build even more residential, commercial and community solar. Our new company creates new clean energy jobs and investment in Vermont and the greater Hudson Valley region. Organized as a Benefit Corporation and certified as a BCorp – we are committed to the triple bottom line of People, Planet and Profit.

We use an innovative community organizing approach to marketing, via high-touch, personal interactions with home and business owners to help craft the solar solution just right for them.    We do all the legwork to put together a total package that’s easy for the customer. We pick the best equipment manufacturers, line up the finest installers and arrange attractive financing that saves our customers real money – all while doing right by the planet. Our team manages solar projects soup-to-nuts to ensure solar is accessible to all.

HOW WE WORK
We feel huge responsibility to succeed, to honor our triple bottom line commitments to people (our employees and their families, our Customers and residents of the communities where we do business), planet (our beloved local rivers, mountains and forests and the broader globe, given climate change) and profit (providing capital to grow, revenue to share among our employees, and a reasonable return to our investors). This is important work, and we have fun doing it.  Innovation is fun stuff.
