Our Vision of Success
At Sunbridge, our vision of a successful business includes more than just our profit margin. That means paying our employees a living wage, providing health and financial benefits, and creating a healthy work environment that fosters creativity and personal growth.
One Project Each Year
We go further than just looking out for ourselves and our customers. We also believe that sharing our success includes those among us that don’t have the same advantages we do. In that spirit, that is why each year we seek out critical-need humanitarian projects that we can support.
Our support may sometimes be financial, but it is often created in nature and can take many forms, from free solar energy education for public school children, to “boots on the ground” work on solar aid projects abroad.
How We Give Back
Having an impact that goes beyond a successful solar installation is important to us. Each year we take a portion of our gross sales and use it fund or work on international or local projects that make life better for those in need. This is our way of paying it forward.
