Sean Lee, Solar Installation Lead

What do you like most about working for Shade Power?

The team! We here at Shade Power have built up a great collaborative environment, where every voice is truly heard and valued. Each of us brings a unique skill set and perspective to the table, so we get to bounce ideas off of each other and come up with creative solutions to continually improve how we work together as a team.


What is your favorite part of building a solar pergola or carport?

For me, my favorite part of the building process is cutting our lumber into the parts we use to assemble the main structure. It’s one of the many steps in which we really get to let our craftsmanship show, and takes equal parts spatial awareness, mental math, concentration, and manual dexterity to produce a quality end result.


When you aren’t building solar pergolas and carports, what do you most like to do?

Outside of work, my newly-discovered passion is running. I’ve found it to be a great outlet to stay in shape while gyms are closed, and a fun way to keep in touch with friends via virtual running challenges. It’s also really easy to keep things interesting by alternating between sprints and long-distance, roads and trails, etc.

When I’m not out running, you can find me playing games with friends, plucking away at my bass guitar, or just lounging around with a good book, movie, or podcast.

What do you like most about working for Shade Power?

I think we have a great small team as well as awesome clients. We’re hands on with every aspect of the project from the ground up and that gives me a better appreciation for all the work and detail that we incorporate together.

What is your favorite part of building a solar pergola or carport?

It’s a great feeling to see it slowly progress more and more each day as we build, until you can finally see it seamlessly become one with the home. Most importantly having a contribution in helping the environment even just a little bit is rewarding.

When you aren’t building solar pergolas and carports, what do you most like to do?

I do videography with good friends of mine, watch football – I’m a loyal Chargers fan, play on my Nintendo Switch, and spend as much time as I can with my loved ones.
