VT Solar Firm Offers New Workplace Benefit

September 3, 2009 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - A White River Junction, Vermont, solar power company is offering a workplace benefit program in which employers can contribute part of the cost when employees add solar power to their homes.

A news release from groSolar said its   Employee Green Benefits program offers group discounts on solar power systems for employees.

After the employer contribution, groSolar in turn discounts the cost of the system to the homeowner by approximately $0.25 per watt, which would be a $1,250 discount on a 5kw system. Homeowners then can access state and federal incentives, according to the news release.

groSolar said employees must sign up for a site evaluation during a limited time open-enrollment period to qualify.

“The groSolar Green Benefits Program is an inexpensive benefit for companies to offer their employees,” said Gaelan Brown, vice president of Marketing for groSolar, in the news release. “It’s good for employee retention and publically demonstrates that employers are socially and environmentally responsible.”
