Beyond our work to accelerate the shift to clean energy through renewable energy projects, it is critical for Apex to act and lead on sustainability.
We seek solutions that transcend our business model to lower our individual and collective environmental footprints, and we invest in socially responsible practices and share our expertise to expand opportunities for others to further the transition to a better, more sustainable future.
Resilience amid uncertainty
Thousands of rural American towns and counties are already being sustained by the jobs and economic benefits delivered by utility-scale wind and solar energy projects. These revenue streams enable landowners and communities to persevere through the best of times and the worst of times. These projects make communities more resilient, and in times like these, resilience is endurance.
Enhancing conservation through the energy transition
With our core value of sustainability top of mind, Apex strives to not only advance the sustainability of America’s energy system as a whole, but also enhance local ecosystems and habitats where Apex’s projects are developed and operated. That’s why we created the Apex Conservation Grant (ACG) program—a first in the industry.
Investing in inspirational people
Through its Community Grant Program, Apex works to enhance its renewable energy projects’ economic benefits for rural America, which has not always shared in the economic investment that urban and suburban communities benefit from. One of those beneficiaries is Special Olympics Illinois, and by extension, its athletes—like Rachel Zakutansky.
Apex Plaza: Sustainable from the ground up
Our mass-timber headquarters, which features green building materials, solar power generation, and energy-efficient elements, is on the cutting edge of sustainable design—mirroring our work at the forefront of the new energy economy.
Employee sustainability incentives
Apex is committed to supporting employees’ efforts to contribute to the company mission, even when away from work. It is in this spirit that Apex will provide financial incentives to employees who purchase electric cars, tools, and bikes; install solar panels on their roofs; avoid driving to work; and make their homes more energy efficient.
Employees who purchase an all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle receive a cash bonus of up to $4,000.
Apexers who install a home solar system (> 2.5 kW) can receive a cash bonus equal to 15% of the total price, up to $4,000.
Parking cash out
Employees who walk, bike, or carpool to work receive a monthly benefit up to $100.
Home energy efficiency
Apex will reimburse employees up to $99 for a home energy audit and up to $250 annually for qualified home energy efficiency upgrades.
Apexers who buy electric tools or any battery-assisted bicycle will be reimbursed 25% of the price of each, up to $500 per year.
Solar nonprofit grant
Apex will distribute up to four $2,500 grants per year to qualifying nonprofits to be applied to the cost of a solar system for their building.
