Stellar Solar Celebrates 15th Year With Launch of Game-Changing Residential Solar Loan

Their no-money-down, 12-year 2.99% solar loan will enable many more homeowners to go solar

SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Stellar Solar, one of California's leading commercial and residential solar integrators is celebrating their 15th year in business by offering a revolutionary new solar loan that is expected to allow even more homeowners to install solar on their homes. The loan is backed-up by Bosch Solar, a division of the leading global brand Bosch. "In our 15 years in business, this is by far the most attractive solar financing option we have offered," said partner and CEO Kent Harle. He added, "Every homeowner in San Diego County with an electric bill over $150 per month should take a look at this."

Stellar Solar partners Kent Harle, Michael Powers, and Brian Grems obtained their contractor's license in 1998 and began installing solar soon after. Their hard work, dedication to quality, and dedication to hiring only quality, ethical employees paid off in 2011 when they were voted Best Solar Company by readers of the UT San Diego. Since then, they have received by far, the most five star reviews on YELP of any solar provider in San Diego.  Their reputation as an honest, low-pressure solar company with an obsessive attention to detail has led to commercial installations with some of Southern California's most recognizable institutions, including The Salk Institute, Cedars Sinai Hospital, Vandenberg Air Force Base, US Foods, and San Diego Cardiac Center.

Founding Partner Brian Grems heads up the engineering side of the business and attributes their residential and commercial solar success to a combination of attention to detail and a design team that never cuts corners. "I've never been a part of a business that so consistently goes the extra mile to provide an excellent customer experience. Sometimes that has cut into our profits but that's one of the reasons we are still in business; people trust us and they refer us to their friends, neighbors and other business owners."

Michael Powers, another founding partner, leads the sales and marketing teams at Stellar Solar. "We take the high road with our sales and marketing approach. We have always taken an educational, consultative approach with home or business owners who are looking to go solar in San Diego County. Our marketing is not over-the-top nor does it rely on tactics like freebies or limited-time-only discounts. People are smart enough to know that gimmicks like that are always worked back into the price.  We only hire sales and solar installation staff who are good people, folks you would welcome into your home. Our high number of customer referrals and five star reviews on YELP are testament to this approach being the right way to do business."

Stellar Solar has been in business since 1998 and offers free solar site evaluations to home and business owners throughout San Diego County.
