Through its COX CONSERVES sustainability program, COX ENTERPRISES is launching a national employee solar program that will provide incentives for employees who choose to install solar panel systems on their homes. The program was announced by COX ENTERPRISES Chairman JIM KENNEDY today in a session on energizing employees at FORTUNE’s Brainstorm Green conference.
COX’s employee solar program was initially piloted in CALIFORNIA through a partnership with SOLARCITY and has nearly 100 participants who can pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility bills.
“When we launched COX CONSERVES, we really wanted to encourage our employees to be eco-friendly,” said KENNEDY. “Whether you are a corporation or an individual, everyone can do something to help preserve our environment. Our 50,000 employees are constantly sharing ideas that help green our operations. This program lets us help them be sustainable at home.”
