RUTLAND, VT  – Same Sun of Vermont, Inc. is pleased to announce that Khanti Munro, formerly Vice President of Positive Energy NY LLC, will join us as Director of Development and Technical Design. Khanti joins our Director of Project Management and Operations of the last three years, Phil Parrish.  Both have attained status as NABCEP Certified Solar PV Installation ProfessionalsTM, the renewable energy industry’s leading recognition of expertise.  

“Phil Parrish and Khanti Munro are the two men I admire most in the design, execution and installation of solar power in Vermont. The fact that they will both be representing Same Sun is incredibly exciting and offers us great possibilities for expansion of our solar business.” said Philip Allen co-owner of the company.

Most recently, Mr. Munro was chiefly responsible for leading Positive Energy, once called Positive Construction, into the solar business and spearheading its expansion to Vermont. Highlights of this work include winning the Green Mountain Power contracts for a 98KW installation at the College of Saint Joseph and the 62kW Otter Creek Solar Farm, and for building a 150KW solar array at Green Mountain College, Mr. Munro’s alma matter.   A long-time PV industry member, Khanti has also been employed by SunEdison and has been an ISPQ Certified PV Instructor with Solar Energy International (SEI).

As a Vermonter myself, I cherish the opportunity to further solar adoption in my home state. Same Sun has established itself as a respected player in the VT solar market, thanks in large part to passionate owners and staff, a solid business plan based on ethical and long-sighted business practices, and an unwavering focus on American-sourced products and services. Having worked in the solar industry for 14 years, these are exactly the qualities I look for in a solar company."
