WATERBURY, Vermont (PRWEB) April 20, 2016
SunCommon, Vermont’s largest solar business, was named one of the Best Places to Work in VT in 2016 for the third year, according to an annual survey by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Business Magazine. This statewide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in Vermont, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.
Companies were ranked based on workplace policies, benefits practices, and demographics, which comprises 25 percent of the evaluation. The remaining portion was a survey by employees. These combined scores determined the top companies in the state.
Headquartered in Waterbury, SunCommon has grown from 16 employees to the 65 it has now since it opened four years ago. Employees operate out of Vermont’s largest net-zero office building, which produces more energy than it uses.

Energy from the sun can power our lives, heat our homes and fuel our cars. Our mission is to tear down the barriers to renewable energy. We do that by making it easy and affordable for all Vermonters to go solar.
