• Ground-mounted solar systems are a spectacular option for homeowners who want to switch to renewable energy but can't install rooftop panels. Ground-mounted systems can be installed in a variety of locations, including open fields, parking lots, and rooftops. 

    Not only this, but ground-mounted solar systems have a vast array of benefits, including the ability to (potentially) generate more electricity than rooftop systems, and the ability to be installed in a variety of locations. Ground-mounted solar systems are a great way to switch to renewable energy and save money on your electric bill.

    There are many benefits to installing a ground mount solar system, including the ability to generate your own electricity and save money on your utility bills. Ground mount solar systems can also increase the value of your home or business.

    If you live in San Diego, you're in luck, because we are here to help you get started. In general, you’ll want to ensure the following before choosing an installer for your project:

    1. Make sure the installer is licensed and insured.
    2. Ask for references and check online reviews.
    3. Get quotes from multiple installers before making a decision.

    As it happens, we carry a C-10 contractor's license, which is considered the gold standard for PV solar electric installation in the USA. On top of this, we are also a Better Business Bureau accredited member and hold an A+ rating. 

    When it comes to references - we’ve got a massive track record. You view our reviews on Yelp or Angie’s List. Referrals are our number one source of new business and we get good reviews for a reason. In fact, we can back this up even more! Readers of the San Diego Union Tribune (San Diego’s largest and most historic newspaper) have consistently voted for us as “Best Solar Company” for 9 out of the last 11 years.

    As you can imagine, installing a solar system is an involved process that requires the right permits and expertise. Our installers will handle all aspects of installation, from securing necessary licenses to designing cutting edge systems for you!

    Ground mounts are great for homes with land adjacent to them. You can have a solar system installed on your property without disrupting the integrity of any existing features, like design or structure! We've worked successfully in San Diego County - including prestigious estates, vineyards, and rural properties that have steep hillsides.

    Stellar Solar has developed our own proprietary ground mount structures that are crafted to an immaculate standard. In fact, we can confidently claim that they are better than anything on the market - and they won't move in virtually any type of weather! 

    Our roofs feature 12 gauge square tubing, stainless joints (for strength), plus over-built design with extra layers of protection against weather damage. It’s time to get solar that you can rely on. 

    There are dozens of benefits of going solar. Let’s examine a few:

    1) Take advantage of the abundant energy of the sun and increase your reliance upon unpredictable fossil fuels. What’s better than knowing that you’re no longer relying on the unstable power grid?

    2) Getting solar lowers your monthly utility bills. Why should you get a higher utility bill - ever again? In today’s world, rising electricity rates are a fact of life. There’s only one way to ‘opt-out’ of this system. As you might imagine, that way is going solar. 

    3) Ground mounts are an excellent way to utilize unused space on your property. Even better if you don’t have suitable roof space for solar. 

    Claiming energy independence is easier than ever with a ground mount solar system from Stellar Solar. San Diego homeowners can call us today to find out how we can help you reduce your reliance on the grid and save money on your electric bill at the same time. With our help, you could be enjoying all the benefits of solar power in no time!

    Ground-mounted solar panels are an increasingly popular option for those looking to generate solar power in San Diego. Unlike rooftop panels, ground-mounted solar panels can be placed without obstructions like chimneys, trees, or neighboring structures. This allows you more flexibility in panel placement while also shortening the payback time for the solar installation. 

    Also, ground-mounted solar panels can more easily be adjusted according to the season or can support a solar tracker that follows the path of the sun throughout the day. Keep in mind, a ground-mounted system (with a tracker) can be 10% to 45% more efficient than your average rooftop solar panel system. If you're considering solar power for your home or business, a ground-mount solar panel system is worth considering!

    No Roof Space, No Problem!

    What if you don't have enough roof space to accommodate the solar system you need? In that case, a ground-mounted solar array may be the answer. Ground-mounted solar arrays offer a number of advantages over rooftop systems, including easier expansion and dual-purpose capabilities.

    If your energy needs expand in the future, it's much easier to add more panels to a ground-mounted solar system than it is to try and expand a rooftop system. This is especially true if you have already maximized all available roof space. In addition, a ground-mounted solar array can double as a solar carport or solar canopy. Very nifty if you have a hot parking lot. Plus, customers and guests will appreciate you. 

    All solar systems need periodic inspections from your installer or an electrician, but ground-mounted solar panels are easier to inspect, which can reduce the maintenance costs of the system. With kits available on the market, you can more easily and safely install a ground-mounted solar system than climbing on a roof to install one.
