WASHINGTON CITY — Shaun Alldredge and Shane Perkins, co-founders and co-owners of Legend Solar, Utah’s premier and fastest growing solar company, have been named in Utah Business’ Forty Under 40.

A program designed to recognize business professionals under the age of 40 who have quickly climbed the corporate ladder, the Forty Under 40 honors those standouts in their field who have demonstrated leadership qualities, created impactful disruptive technology, or entrepreneurs who have successfully created a market or industry for a new product.

Perkins and Alldredge have built one of the state’s leading, and fastest growing, solar power companies. In 2015 alone, the company achieved 400 percent growth, a remarkable milestone that brought a revenue increase from $3.7 million to $18.3 million year over year. 2016, too, was a year filled with multiple milestones and awards that included being named to the prestigious Inc. magazine Inc. 500 (ranked No. 29 overall and No. 1 in Utah), marking a 3-year sales growth of 7,102 percent.

Legend Solar also announced sponsorships with Dixie State University, Brigham Young University and the Portland Trail Blazers in 2016.

“We are proud and honored to be listed among some of Utah’s best, brightest and most accomplished young businessmen and women,” Perkins said. “It is great to be able to rub shoulders with such an elect group of Utahns.”

The Utah Business Forty Under 40 awards program was held Thursday, Feb. 23, in the Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. For more information about the awards ceremony, visit utahbusiness.com.

    I still think something about this business model stinks. The growth rates are unsustainable and their business is dependent upon government subsidies. It feels like a shell game with high pressure salesmen pressuring people into signing over their tax returns for 10+ years.

    The bubble will burst soon enough and these jamokes will probably take the money and run.

    A couple up the street put in solar.

    They are in their 70’s. They’ll never see a payback.

    Methinks they folded to some high-pressure sales pitch from these solar cons.

    Has anyone seen their (Legend Solar’s) FB Page Reviews/comments, as of today 2/27/2017, I looked for one good comment and couldn’t find one. Complaints ranged from Installation, non communication, over pricing, disregard of time and dates of installation in the contract, just giving customer the run around in the later part of 2016 (just before tax season), but good and quick to look at the fine print, if you want to cancel the contract. Just sayin. Social Media was a quick resource, from actual customers, that even left their own phone number. Research is key, and this was a simple check. But it was an important check, the customers response. Maybe check some reviews before putting a company on a pedastool. Because your story may have been true in the facts based on the title of the story, but, you may have pointed your readers in the wrong direction. Infact, some may be headed for “disaster” as one customer reviewer said.
