• Meet Our In-house Solar Industry Expert Michael Powers

  • Michael Powers is one of the three founding partners of SunPower by Stellar Solar, originally bringing his sales and marketing skills from the time he spent launching The Home Depot national solar energy program.  This flagship program was one of the first national sales programs to bring solar to the average homeowners, and is now offering home solar through hundreds of stores in nearly a dozen states.

    Michael is a renowned writer and marketing professional with over 30 years’ experience in the fields of energy, market intelligence and leadership training. He is a certified practioner and coach for TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic).  He runs a solar energy blog called Terrawatts, which he keeps updated with the latest happenings in solar and alternative energy.

    Michael also serves as treasurer and board member of Global Energy Network Institute (GENI), a San Diego-based non-governmental organization that advocates linking renewable energy resources around the world using electricity transmission.  

    As a result of his history in the industry and unique insights on the future of alternative energy, Michael is consistently tapped by major publications like the San Diego Union Tribune, and Forbes for his opinion on current and future happenings in the industry.  For these reasons, we are very proud to have Michael on board as one of the leaders of the company and one of the thought leaders in the industry.
