Stellar Solar Awarded Performance Excellence Recognition from Tesla

This prestigious national designation is awarded to a top performing battery installer in the United States for their significant sales volume and customer support. 

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stellar Solar, one of the most experienced solar and battery installers in Southern California and Michigan since 1998, and consistent winner of  the San Diego Union Tribune Readers Poll in the category of Best Solar Company, has added another impressive award to their collection, this time in the emerging energy storage sector. As winner of the Tesla Performance Excellence award, they have been recognized nationally as one of the leading installers of the Tesla Powerwall and providers of customer support for both new solar installations and additions to existing systems.  Given the high volume of Powerwall installations nationally, this is a significant accomplishment for Stellar Solar and Stellar Solar Michigan and further establishes them as the go-to resource for solar and battery storage combination installations in both the California and Michigan markets.

Besides their status as one of the most experienced solar installers in the country, now in their 25th year, Stellar Solar has also been installing batteries for over 18 years, putting them in a leadership position nationally in that category as well.

Stellar Solar President Brian Hobbs had this to say about the award and Stellar Solar’s leadership position in the battery space: “It’s an honor to be recognized by Tesla, the market leader in batteries for both self-consumption and emergency backup. They are the gold standard in a now crowded energy storage field yet continue to hold a leadership position in the battery sector. We had already been installing batteries when the Powerwall came to market and immediately realized the potential of their game changing technology and quickly started marketing their superior technology to our new and existing customer base who also recognized the potential for both energy storage for self-consumption and emergency backup. I personally have three of them and could not be happier with their performance and stylish aesthetics.”

Kent Harle, co-founder and CEO of Stellar Solar had this to add about the award: “Tesla is one of the most respected and innovative brands in the world, so to represent their game-changing Powerwall and be recognized by them for our efforts in introducing them to homeowners on a large scale is an accomplishment I am very proud of.  Besides solar, we take pride in being the leading resource for energy storage and electric vehicle connectivity in Southern California and Michigan – helping homeowners electrify their lives with both.”
