On a brisk (single digits!) January morning in our capital city, we unveiled our latest innovation, the Solar Canopy, at the first public installation at Montpelier’s Hunger Mountain Co-op. Though his lips were likely frozen, our co-founder James Moore was able to proudly introduce a personal dream of his, the Solar Canopy, to an audience of SunCommon employees, Hunger Mountain Co-op shoppers, energy industry partners, our state’s entire press corps and our new Governor Phil Scott. Wow.
The muffled mitten-clad applause greeted each speaker to the podium and made our new Governor chuckle as he said “It’s kind of a muted clap over there” before delivering his remarks at his first press conference celebrating this new Vermont innovation.
