I highly recommend Stellar Solar. I met with representatives from five companies...and there are plenty more out there...and though most did a good job with their proposal, Zac Dowell of Stellar Solar did the best. He addressed my questions with his presentation, recommended the best panels in the market, a great roof layout, and the best price. Most importantly, Zac, Ismael, and the rest of the t...

I started solar company research 4 years ago. I quickly canceled my research because all the companies ****** me off. It seemed like a complete scam/hustle. Then this year I started my research again. Solar power is too important, so I got back into the ring to, this time, pull the trigger and get it done. I have issues with getting the best quality at the best price. I got three quotes and then w...

I am very happy with my solar panels and my solar set-up. Dave Gersz and Mario and his crew were all very courtesy and professional. I interviewed several different solar companies and I was most impressed with the Stellar Solar Sunpower system and pleasantly surprised that they were on the low end of the estimates I received. Great team, great outcome.

Met with Dave Gersz at my home to learn about SunPower Panels. no pressure, just facts and how it would all progress should i move forward with Stellar Solar. of course after he left, i went down my own rabbit hole of internet research which only confirmed what he told me earlier in the day. Dave was there every step of the way, (before and after signing the contract) checking in and answering any...

I had a fantastic experience with Stellar Solar. Connor always answered my calls and emails promptly and the on-site crew was terrific. I would definitely recommend Stellar Solar to anyone considering the installation of a solar system.

Stellar Solar replaced the communication module. It worked fine for a couple of months and now seems like it is not working. Called Jose and he said a tech would call the same day. I keep sending emails and leaving messages on his voicemail without any response. They just abandon their customer.

Smoothly. My sales rep was patient and not pushy, but willing to provide as much additional information as I needed. The installation team was friendly and efficient. The inspection rep was effective at working with the city inspector. All in all, good experience so far. Sunpower panels are not the cheapest, but they are reputed to be among the best, so expect to pay a bit more than elsewhere. I e...

Beware. This is an updated review. The coordination and installation of my solar panels by Stellar was great. However, upon completion of the installation I was notified by SunPower and their finance division, Mosaic, that my loan had closed with a rate and term higher than Stellar represented to me. I was promised by Stellar that I would receive financing for 10 years at 2.99%. This was in writin...

Everyone at Stellar Solar was professional, courteous and responsive. It initially seemed odd that you don't actually meet with someone during the sales process - but that turned out just fine - phone and e-mail conversations were adequate. Their information was the most thorough of the 4 contractors I interviewed and options were clearly lined out. The most important thing was their willingness t...
