Shawn Lessord Joins SunCommon New York Team
We’re always on the lookout for passionate and talented individuals to make our family brighter, which is why we’re thrilled to welcome Shawn Lessord to the SunCommon NY team as a PV Sales Associate. Shawn comes to SunCommon after designing over three Megawatts of residential and commercial solar PV systems. He’s credited with the design of the first solar project in the preservation district of East Ave, the design of the first solar PV project in over 40 different municipal districts, the creation of the first Rochester-based Solar Home Tour, and the design and install of solar PV projects for two Municipal Power Districts (MPD).
The connection to solar extends beyond the regular working hours for Shawn as he is proud to live in a net zero energy home with a 4.8Kw solar PV system, instant hot water heater, and more! When he’s not designing and promoting solar adoption in the Greater Rochester area, Shawn is actively involved in solar PV safety education for First Responders and volunteering whenever possible. He also does outreach and educational programming for various community projects in Hamlin, Clarkson, and Brockport.
According to Doug Weishaar, Director of Sales, Shawn has already hit the ground running: “Shawn’s decade of solar experience and wealth of knowledge further bolsters our position as Rochester’s pre-eminent solar company. We look forward to his continued success as he helps SunCommon bring affordable and sustainable energy to the Greater Rochester area.”
Shawn is a native of Brockport and lives in a solar-powered home with his wife, Lori, and daughters, Kara and Magin. His favorite saying is “The change you started already has far reaching effects, be ready.” We couldn’t agree more! Shawn brings a new intensity to SunCommon NY, enthusiastically promoting our mission to break down barriers to clean energy and use our business as a force of good!
