WASHINGTON, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy announced the Washington Business Journal has named it a 2017 "Best Places to Work in Greater Washington" honoree. The company was recognized within the "Medium Companies" category, and will be honored at a ceremony on June 22nd in Washington, D.C.
CleanChoice Energy is at the vanguard of Washington D.C.'s renewable energy and clean tech industry, and is revolutionizing the way Americans can support and access clean energy regardless of where they live. In the past year, the company was awarded a $2.5 million cooperative award from the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot Initiative to reduce the costs of community solar and bring the technology to scale, and passed a significant milestone by serving more than 1 billion kilowatts of clean energy across nine states since 2011.
"CleanChoice Energy offers our employees the rewards of a career that helps make the world a cleaner and better place. Every day we work to transform America by switching homes and businesses to wind and solar energy," said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. "This recognition by the Washington Business Journal underlines our belief that success goes hand in hand with enjoying where we work and what we do."
The company was recognized for its commitment to employee wellness, equity options, work-life balance, office space designed to foster creativity, as well as its corporate mission to open up clean energy access.
Consumers want renewable electricity, but they want it convenient and fast. As the first licensed retail energy provider offering only 100 percent renewable energy products to American homes and businesses, CleanChoice Energy has made it easy for people to choose clean energy as-a-service instead of as a home construction project. The company is a certified B Corporation and recently passed $1 million in total corporate donations to environmental and social impact organizations.
