Sungevity lays off approximately 400 employees due to the coronavirus pandemic

The cuts are attributed to “business conditions and the COVID-19 outbreak.”

U.S residential solar installer Sungevity has laid off a significant number of employees because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to a filing with California’s Employment Development Department, Sungevity eliminated 387 positions.

Sungevity went bankrupt in 2017, which resulted in the acquisition of most of its assets by a consortium led by private equity firm Northern Pacific Group through a firm called Solar Spectrum.

The latter eventually merged with Horizon Solar Power and since then has been operating under the Sungevity brand.
