  • What an incredible experience. It started with our sales manager, Dave Gersz, recommended to us by friends. He was so helpful, patient, informative, CLEAR (the tax stuff got a little confusing and deciding how many panels), and not pushy at all.
    Our project coordinator, Jeff Warren, kept us well informed on the project, status, next steps throughout which was encouraging, and proactively answered our questions.
    The install team, led by Mario, was very efficient and friendly, and mindful of social distancing amidst all the COVID-19 cautions.
    The team went above and beyond and followed through the whole process down to selecting our SDG&E time of use plan.
    We would 100% recommend this company and this team to anyone interested in going solar
    Thank you!!!

  • From beginning to end my experience with Stellar was great. Erin Pressley served as my sales representative, and she stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process, even answering my questions and completing paperwork over the weekend.

    All of the staff members that I worked with were courteous, professional and responsive to my needs.

    Best of all, the system is working great!

  • We got 4 quotes on a full solar system and went with Stellar based on the Sun Power panels and all the great reviews. Once we signed with Stellar we had permission to operate from SDGE 32 days later. Blew my mind. Their communication and professionalism is phenomenal as there were zero issues throughout the whole process. I'd opt for Stellar any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

  • I was referred to Mark Cirelli at Stellar Solar by a neighbor who I trust. The entire process was quite easy and everything moved along a lot quicker than I anticipated.

  • Stellar Solar is a great company.
    Very professional, and everyone I dealt with at the company was nice and made the whole experience enjoyable.
    My sales person Marc Cirelli was also low pressure and made understanding how the solar process works very easy. I couldn't be more excited about my system now.
    Thank you Sunpower by Stellar Solar for the great work!

  • I had a great experience with Stellar Solar. From the initial quote through final installation, Stellar was on top of things and kept me informed along the way. The installation and customer service teams were professional and prompt and the final product looks great. I just flipped the switch and the system is producing electricity!

    Thanks Dave G, Kent, and the rest of the Stellar Team.
