Legend Solar wins two of Utah’s Best of State awards

In the roughly five years since the birth of the company, Legend Solar has been paired with a variety of adjectives.
Now, as the recent recipient of two Best of State awards at the Utah 2017 Best of State event, it’s time to add yet another positive adjective to the list.

Legend Solar co-founder and co-owner Shane Perkins can be seen on a video screen as he accepts one of two Best of State awards earned but the company at the awards banquet in May.

The awards

Legend Solar was named Best Solar Technology company and honored for Best Energy Products during the awards banquet in May. It’s a distinction that comes as no surprise to Legend Solar customers who have been reaping the benefits of Legend Solar’s top-of-the-line technology and energy efficiency for years. Still, having the recognition on a state level is something Shaun Alldredge, Legend Solar co-founder and co-owner calls, “an honor.”
“Legend Solar takes great pride in providing the very best in cutting-edge technology, quality products and customer service for both our residential as well as our business solar customers,” Alldredge says. “We are so honored to be listed among the very best in the state of Utah.”

The winners were selected based on three criteria: how the company excels in its endeavors, how the company uses innovative approaches or methods, and how the company contributes to a better quality of life in Utah.
For Legend Solar, standing out in each of those areas begins with offering the best product and the best warranty, all while placing highest value on integrity above profits.

“What would we want as a customer if someone was selling to us,” Alldredge says. “That’s what we want to sell.”
With those values as a backbone of the company, it just makes sense that Legend Solar is an Elite dealer for SunPower, which offers the highest efficiency solar panels on the market and the industry’s best 25-year combined product and power warranty.

By offering the best products, Legend Solar is helping its customers reduce their carbon footprints, and ultimately provide a safer, more comfortable world for everyone.

The prestige

Best of State is known as the premier recognition and awards program in the state of Utah. Its purpose is to recognized outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in 10 categories including arts and entertainment, business services, community development, dining establishments, education, hospitality and tourism, merchandising and consumer services, production and manufacturing, sports and recreation, and science at technology.

Legend Solar’s awards fall under the science and technology category.

A bright future

Receiving Best of State recognition as a company is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the strides Legend Solar continues to make. Installing more than 5,000 kilowatts of solar panels on homes and commercial buildings throughout Utah in 2016 is one example. Their efforts earned them the title of Residential Regional Top Producer of the Year by SunPower.

Another example of Legend Solar’s upward trajectory is the recent addition of an energy efficiency arm of the company known as Legend Energy.

“Our mantra is conserve energy, then create energy. Reduce energy, then produce energy,” says Shane Perkins, co-founder and co-owner of Legend Solar and Legend Energy.

Clearly, with these projects and more on the horizon, Legend Solar can expect to hear the word “best” associated with its company, products and services, again in the future.
