Testimonials

Solar Canopy

“The canopy blends in really nicely as part of our lives and fits in well with our yard. All our friends were asking about it when we got it, and we’ve heard from our neighbors that it’s such a great alternative to panels on the roof. It’s really aesthetically pleasing!

Now that the canopy’s in our yard, we’re thinking about our energy all the time. We’re pondering getting an electric car and thinking about this as one step of many!”

Sarah Francisco, Williston

“I talked with SunCommon a number of years ago, it was one of those things where I wanted to think it over. Few years went by and I thought to myself, if I’m ever gonna do it, now is the time. SunCommon takes care of a lot of your worries about how it’s all done; they handle the whole thing. What I call “turn key”… ‘We’ll take care of it.’

I think the canopy is beautiful. I like the post and beam structure. It gives you utilization for parking. You can get two vehicles under here easily. Right now I’m using it for the tractor.

It’s a great second-use storage place for firewood, another vehicle… I can envision putting in a nice stone area to take shelter from the sun. I think this is the future.”

— Ed Dombroski, Jericho

We want solar to fit into our built environment and working landscape. We designed SunCommon's new Solar Canopy to be both beautiful and functional, embracing the Northeast's classic heritage and its clean energy future.
James MooreCo-founder
We couldn't put a traditional ground-mounted solar array in our backyard because it would have taken up valuable yard space. When we saw the design of the Solar Canopy and how beautiful it looked - not to mention its functionality - we were sold. Our Solar Canopy will produce more than enough electricity for our home and electric vehicle while serving as our covered patio.
