March 2019 Business of the Month
GreenSpark Solar started in 2002 as Sustainable Energy Developments and is located on Timothy Lane in Ontario New York.
GreenSpark has created a mission to create fiercely local, cost-effective, clean energy options in the Greater Rochester Community and to believe that locally generated clean energy is a cost-effective, market-based solution to combat climate change and an important strategy to strengthen our local community
Keeping the mission statement in mind they bring a solar-powered charging station to events providing an opportunity for attendees to charge devices. They deliver educational presentations about Exploring Solar, providing information to the public about incentives and policies that encourage solar. They host community events, with various partners, to advance environmental initiatives and they offer tours of their facility to educate the community about the Wayne Industrial Sustainability Park and the Sustainable Micro-grid on which their office is located.
One of their local projects was implementing the Webster Solar Challenge to encourage businesses and homeowners to Go Solar.
GreenSpark currently has 30 employees ranging from sales to installers to friendly office staff to answer any questions you may have about solar energy.
The company is busy in the community providing partnerships with not-for-profits to host events that generate a donation for every per household that Goes Solar. They keep the giving back spirit alive by volunteering at local charities, such as Gilda's Club. GreenSpark continues educating students at school events, teaching them how solar works and what they can do to save energy.
Congratulations to GreenSpark Solar, the Chamber's March 2019 Business of the Month!
