The East Bay Bicycle Coalition just awarded us the Bike-Friendly Business Award! Here’s what they say:

How has Sungevity created such a bike-friendly environment? We heard from dozens of Sungevity employees and many spoke to the company culture where biking is an integral part of a solar-powered, human-powered, “no fossil-fuel” mission. And Sungevity gets the infrastructure piece right too. The company provides a 1,200 square foot bike room with enough room for 20% of employees to park at any one time, with showers. Sungevity also encourages their employees to bike through awards where winning teams get to give $500 to a charity of their choice, Taco Bike lunch days, and bike commute lunchtime workshops. One employee reported that he has biked to work at Sungevity over 400 consecutive workdays. That may be a record!
