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.  So we’re tearing down the barriers that have made renewable energy inaccessible with the goal of repowering our communities one home, school, and business at a time.  To this end, we make going solar easy and affordable so that all Vermonters together can take part in creating a healthier environment. 

ABOUT THE BUSINESS

SunCommon is a marriage of two Rochester, NY and Vermont-based innovative, renewable energy companies. In January 2017, the companies joined forces to become a regional solar powerhouse that boasts Vermont’s largest residential solar business (with more than 3000 Vermonters served!), a thriving commercial solar construction business, and significant market share in the fast-growing Rochester solar market that is home to more than 1 million people.

We utilize an innovative community organizing approach to marketing, via high-touch, personal interactions with home and business owners who want solar but couldn’t figure it out or didn’t think they could afford it.  We’ve done all the legwork to put together a total package that’s easy for the customer.   We picked the best equipment manufacturers, lined up the finest installers and arranged attractive financing that saves our customers real money.

PAY & BENEFITS

SunCommon provides our employees a competitive salary and strong package of benefits, including:

  • For the employee and her/his family, fully paid medical premiums as well as a significant contribution toward medical deductible expenses,
  • For the employee and a spouse or dependent, fully paid dental premiums,
  • 3 weeks paid personal leave (combined vacation and sick) for year 1; 4 weeks for year 2,
  • 10 paid holidays annually,
  • 401k company match 1:1 up to 3% of salary that the employee sets aside then 1:2 match for 4 or 5%.

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 (Vermont’s beloved environment 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.

We do it by celebrating creativity, cross-function collaboration, high energy, hard work, good play, deep networking and with the acknowledgement that we’ll each make mistakes and learn from them.  We know success.  We know fun.  Come do both with us.
