We choose co-ownership over hierarchy, democratic decisionmaking over centralized leadership, sustainable growth over-aggressive expansion, and collaboration over competition. We value openness, equality, and total honesty in the workplace. We share our values with our community in the way we relate to our customers and partners. We support like-minded organizations through solar grants and sponsorships. Our customers become our friends, which opens up a new level of communication and commitment. Our unique business model has brought innovative results. We are recognized for going above and beyond what’s expected.
