Asheville, NC (May 12, 2021) — Pine Gate Renewables, a leading utility-scale solar development and finance company, has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Noted for its inclusion in the Energy category and making the list for the first time, Pine Gate will be featured in the May/June 2021 issue of the magazine which hits newsstands May 18. As part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.
Founded in 2014, Pine Gate Renewables is a leader in the solar industry and an innovator in the movement for clean energy solutions. Operating in 5 states, its solar and storage projects generate renewable energy that connect to existing utility grids, provide tax dollars to local economies, create jobs and lead the way in America’s energy transition. Pine Gate fosters an environment that attracts employees who embrace the company’s culture and values of collaboration, ownership, creativity and grit. Those values shine brightly through each employee who works daily to fulfill the company’s mission to “get solar done.”
“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.
