U.S. Companies Offer Solar Discount as Employee Benefit

3M, Cisco Systems, Kimberly-Clark, and National Geographic Magazine are offering their employees discounts on rooftop photovoltaic systems in the United States’ first national bulk solar purchase program.

For those companies, “employee benefits are extending beyond the three-legged stool of health care, retirement, and vacation to include clean energy,” delivered to their homes at little or no up-front cost, Scientific American reports.

“Under the Solar Community Initiative administered by the World Wildlife Fund and executed by solar firm Geostellar, employees of the four firms can install rooftop solar PV at prices that average 35% below the national average for solar and nearly 50% less expensive than average grid-delivered electricity.”
