    Power NW is certified as a Benefit Corporation; a designation that signifies a company’s commitment to the highest standards of corporate responsibility and sustainability. It’s a focus on the triple bottom line which prioritizes ethical business practices over profits.

    What is a Benefit Corporation? How are they Different?

    Benefit Corporations are for-profit companies certified by a third party to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Benefit Corporations also share a common goal of using business as a force for good.

    To earn certification, companies must meet certain standards in terms of governance, workers, customers, community, and the environment. Unlike traditional corporations, Benefit Corporations are required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on shareholders but all of the stakeholders involved. This includes customers, employees, vendors, and the community at large. When decisions are made with this frame of reference, everyone wins!

    Mission Driven Corporation

    Power Northwest is a mission-driven corporation working toward a cleaner, more sustainable future! We help customers throughout the Pacific Northwest reduce their carbon footprint through intelligent energy solutions such as solar and battery storage.

    Power Northwest is a benefit corporation because we put our mission before profits. Specifically, we focus on our three main pillars:

    1. happy homeowners,
    2. enriched employees, and a
    3. clean environment.

    Happy Homeowners – We are customer-centric and fanatical about ensuring that we exceed our customer’s expectations. This is true at all levels of our company, from our installers and electricians to the dedicated project managers and salespeople, to everyone behind the scenes. We do everything we can to ensure that projects move along smoothly and are installed with the highest level of quality.

    Enriched Employees -This company is built for us, the employees. We strive to make it a great place to work and to offer everyone opportunities to advance and grow. As a JATC Training Agent, we administer a one-on-one apprenticeship program that allows experienced electricians to share their skills and teach the next generation. We encourage people to come here and to learn and grow so that they can reach their full potential.

    Clean Environment -Our primary goal is to deploy solar, which provides a huge environmental impact. However, we also take this ethos to heart in everything that we do. We try to reduce our carbon footprint as a business wherever we can. We recycle our cardboard, and our metal scraps, separate out our plastics, carpool when possible, fuel our diesel vehicles with biodiesel, and we even have a handful of electric vehicles in our fleet.
