Renewable energy company tops Rochester Chamber Top 100 list

Oct 25, 2017

SunCommon NY, a distributor of renewable energy generation, including solar and wind projects, took the number one spot on the 31st annual Rochester Chamber Top 100 list of the fastest-growing privately held businesses in the Finger Lakes region. 

Waste services broker Waste Harmonics LLC and cardiac safety and respiratory services laboratory iCardiac Technologies, Inc. rounded out the top three. 

The Top 100 list ranks businesses based upon both dollar and percentage growth.

To be eligible for the Rochester Chamber Top 100, businesses must be independent, privately held, headquartered in the nine-county Finger Lakes region, and have revenue of at least $1 million in each of the three most recent fiscal years. 

SunCommon NY Founder and CEO Kevin Schulte attributes his company’s growth to two things.  “First, the future of solar is now,” Schulte said. “The second is our culture. We started as a value-led business in 2002 and became a certified benefit corporation in 2015. We grow because of our values and commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit.”

The  annual Rochester Chamber Top 100 celebration will be held on November 2.
