WASHINGTON — Legend Solar has been recognized as one of the fastest growing businesses by MountainWest Capital Network in the 22nd annual Utah 100 Awards Program. Selected from thousands of eligible applicants from throughout the state and across all industries, Legend Solar was named one of the Emerging Elite, chosen from among the group of honorees.
The recipients of the award were chosen based on percentage revenue increase between 2011 and 2015. From that group, the Emerging Elite were selected from among companies with less than five but more than two years of operation that show significant promise for future success.
Legend Solar’s co-founders and co-owners, Shane Perkins and Shaun 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.
“It is an honor to accept these awards from MountainWest Capital Network,” Perkins said. “We are proud to be listed among such an incredible group of Utah businesses.”
“Utah remains one of the best economic and entrepreneurial states in the country. With its dynamic economy and long-term stability that invites strong companies, the state has an ample number of businesses that demonstrate incredible growth,” said Paul Skeen, Chairman of the MWCN Utah 100 committee. “It is a pleasure to recognize each of the Utah 100 and acknowledge their success, progression and foresight.”
The Utah 100 Awards Program was held Tuesday in the Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City and was hosted by MountainWest Capital Network. More information about the awards ceremony can be found online.
