Summit Energy, one of the Northeast region’s premier solar installers celebrated its company anniversary by formally announcing the donation of a 30kw solar system, worth $125,700, to Interfaith Social Services in Quincy, Massachusetts. Interfaith is a multi service center for families in need on the South Shore. The celebration and formal announcement was held at the company’s corporate headquarters in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Every year on or around September 19th, the day the company was founded in 2016, Summit Energy celebrates Summit Day by exhibiting acts of kindness in the community both domestically and internationally.
At the same time, Summit management selects a famous mountain to Summit each year which symbolizes a key founding principle of the company to reach the topmost level attainable in business and in the way it treats people. This year the mountain selected is Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa, making it one of the seven summits.
“We like to think of Summit Energy as a people company that happens to sell solar. Our Mission to Empower People and Elevate Tomorrow is more than a catch phrase. It means we are here to help each other and better the world we live in,” said Dallin Maw, Cofounder and Chief Elevate Officer of Summit Energy. “September 19, is a very special day for Summit. We celebrate this day every year by announcing one of our most important philanthropic initiatives of the year to mirror our mission of helping people and making the world a better place. We couldn’t be more pleased with our support of Interfaith Social Services which does so much to help so many.”
“We’ve been partnering with Interfaith Social Services for several years now through donations and employee volunteer initiatives,” said Eric Israelsen, Cofounder, Chief Empower Officer of Summit Energy. “This year we are thrilled to donate a solar system which will help the organization save on their electric bills and enable them to divert those savings to helping more people in the community through their food pantry for example, which is one of the largest in Greater Boston, as well as their other life changing programs.”
“This is a transformational donation,” said Rick Doane, Executive Director of Interfaith Social Services. “Right now all of Interfaith’s programs are experiencing record setting levels of demand. Our food pantry, like many others in Massachusetts, is serving 30% more clients than at the height of the pandemic. With the money we will now save from our electric bill each month we will be able to purchase an additional 5,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for the children and families that we serve. Summit is definitely leading by example: reducing the collective carbon footprint, fostering employee engagement through volunteering, making financial and in kind donations; they are a huge asset to our community.”
