Trusted by Home and Business Owners Throughout Southern California
The July, 2023 cover story in Energy Business Review features Stellar Solar once again taking a leadership position in the next phase of the solar and battery storage revolution. Our executive team and solar evangelist Bill Walton detail how they are now helping homeowners maximize their returns by off-setting peak and off-peak rates through a combination of solar and battery storage – buying energy when prices are low and selling when prices are high by giving customers the tools they need to maximize their investments and help control their energy future. It’s a great read if you are thinking about going solar or just curious how it works.
Stellar Solar Awarded Performance Recognition from Tesla
Stellar Solar, one of the most experienced solar and battery installers in Southern California and Michigan since 1998, and consistent winner of the San Diego Union Tribune Readers Poll in the category of Best Solar Company, has added another impressive award to our collection, this time in the emerging energy storage sector. As winner of the Tesla Performance Excellence award, we have been recognized nationally as one of the leading installers of the Tesla Powerwall and providers of customer support for both new solar installations and additions to existing systems. Given the high volume of Powerwall installations nationally, this is a significant accomplishment for us and Stellar Solar Michigan and further establishes Stellar as the go-to resource for solar and battery storage combination installations in both the California and Michigan ma
How Bill Walton Became Our Solar Evangelist
In 2020, Stellar Solar connected with NBA Hall of Fame Center, ESPN broadcaster, best-selling author and San Diego native and resident Bill Walton through a mutual introduction. It was during that encounter that Walton shared his passion for solar and electric vehicles, having been an early adopter of both.
That first meeting ended up being a fortuitous encounter ripe with possibilities and an agreement was quickly reached for Walton to become the solar evangelist for Stellar Solar.
Walton’s choice to work with Stellar Solar was a “no-brainer” as he put it. “I’ve known of Stellar’s sustained excellence and success for years, including their incredible streak of winning San Diego’s Best consistently. Stellar is synonymous with all the things I believe in, stand for and try to live every day. Stellar’s standing in our community, their customer reviews, and the quality and authenticity of their people, product, style, and culture fit seamlessly and perfectly with who I am, what I want to do.
Most recently, Walton became a customer of Stellar Solar by adding additional panels and three Tesla Powerwalls to prepare his home for power outages and offset skyrocketing utility rates through self-consumption during peak rate times. This move has proven to be perfect timing given the new solar and battery for self-consumption model that is perfectly suited for NEM 3.0.
