"Kenny Rutherford and Stellar Solar have helped many of my clients and friends over the years. They are without a doubt the best solar company around. Have you talked to a lot of solar people are confused? Kenny Rutherford is the guy to talk to. He will walk you through the numbers, the process and is able to compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges. He is a scrupulously honest and genuinely nice person."
— Terri P.
"We brought Stellar Solar back to expand our system to cover our electrification efforts - EVs, heat pump water heater, and electric dryer and induction range (coming soon). Great pricing, easy to work with. Glad we had another opportunity to work with them!"
— Tom A.
"We chose Stellar after interviewing a number of companies. They got it installed quickly and efficiently. My son, who started the process several weeks before me with another company, weeks later, is still waiting on his installation and turn on. They also helped by presenting a lot of options for short term financial resources to allow us to move quickly.

Would highly recommend."
— Robin J.
"We were so grateful to get our solar work done by Stellar when we did! The large federal rebate on solar panels will be decreasing substantially soon, and the power buyback rate by SDGE will also be likely dropping to wholesale soon, so now is the time to get solar on your home!

They communicated really well, were honest, and patiently and clearly taught us about the ins and outs of solar."
— Jeff O.
"We just got Solar installed from Stellar Solar. If you are thinking about Solar then I highly recommend them. They are super professional and made our install pretty easy from start to finish. Our salesman Marc answered all my questions and really helped us as we weighed our needs and all the options.There's also a pretty sweet tax credit that made it a no brainer. I shopped about 6 companies and Stellar stood out as the best. The install and communication was seamless."
— Scott R.
"Simply the best solar company in San Diego. Hands down.

Had Sunpower system since 2011 and working perfectly. Had one issue this week and resolved fast by Brennan and Daniel. Zac Dowell in sales has been there for 10+ years.

They are a-m-a-z-i-ng."
— T.K.
"We had a great experience purchasing and installing our system with Stellar Solar in late 2021. Our salesperson, Kenny, was honest, transparent about design decisions, and exceptionally communicative from start to finish. Our system is producing the predicted output, and has been trouble-free in its first year."
— Dan C.
"Easiest construction project we have done. We purchased our system on 11/27 and we're up and running on 12/17. We couldn't believe how smooth it went.

The whole crew at Stellar Solar were fantastic. From the sales, installation and inspection team, they were all knowledgeable and answered any questions I had."
