Rutland's Same Sun moves into larger space

Thu, 03/15/2018 - 4:47am -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine Same Sun of Vermont, Vermont’s premiere solar design and installation company has moved from 24 Center Street to 141 West Street in Rutland. “After seven years, we had outgrown our Center Street space and were ready to enter into a long-term arrangement with MKF Properties,” said Marlene Allen, co-owner of Same Sun. “Mark Foley was able to accommodate our desire to maintain our ground-floor identity.”

The 3,200 square foot space provides not only more workspace for our growing company, but a large conference room and public area offering meeting and educational possibilities. As always, the public is welcome to stop in to learn about solar.   Vermonters have so embraced solar energy that this little state has become a national leader in the industry, a fact that stirs confidence about the future.

“We are thrilled that our new space allows us to create a solar awning, install battery storage technology and provide an EV car charging station for ourselves and our customers,” said co-owner Philip Allen, adding, “We intend to hold monthly events to celebrate, promote and educate on the importance and advantages of renewable energy.”

Same Sun’s first event will be a March 20th mixer for the Rutland Young Professionals, followed by our Grand Re-opening on April 28th.  Same Sun’s first project in the new space is for BROC, a non-profit organization that empowers, supports and educates family in ways to be self-sufficient. Last year, aided by a grant from Green Mountain Power, Same Sun worked with BROC to go solar; this year the array will be tripled through Same Sun’s unique lease to own program. The completed solar array will be the largest in Rutland’s downtown, the solar capital of New England.

Same Sun of Vermont -- was established in 2011 by Marlene Lederman Allen and Philip Allen as a turnkey solar-electric design and installation firm. Headquartered in historic downtown Rutland, Same Sun focuses on customer-driven solutions for the residential and commercial Vermont marketplace.  Business hours are 9-5 Monday to Friday and by appointment.
