SunPower by Stellar Solar repeats as best solar power company in the 2018 San Diego Union Tribune Readers Poll


SunPower by Stellar SolarSan Diego’s oldest SunPower dealer and one of two Master Dealers in San Diego County, has won the San Diego Union Tribune Readers Poll in the category of Best Solar Company for a record sixth time.  Their victory in 2018 adds to wins in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017 with second place finishes in 2012 and 2016. The achievement further solidifies SunPower by Stellar Solar as a solid choice for home and business owners who are looking to make the move to solar power.

Kent Harle, co-founder and CEO of SunPower by Stellar Solar had this to say about repeating among a large field of San Diego solar companies that entered: “When I found out that we won again this year I was thrilled – as this award continues to raise the bar higher every year for us as a company. We are far from perfect, we’ve made every mistake in the book, but we learn from those mistakes and they don’t happen again. Twenty years in business powering San Diego home and business owners has given us the experience that not many solar installers have in San Diego. I have a team of about 80 of the best people you would ever want to work with, or have work on your home. I feel comfortable with every one of them going into a home to present homeowners with all their options.  Our win this year, and the sixth time in eight years, proves, without a doubt, that we really are the best at what we do. Our sales team is the most seasoned in the industry, still focusing on educating the customer rather than high pressure tactics. Folks recognize that and we are rewarded with more homeowners going solar with us than not.  If you look us up on Yelp, you will see a lot of great reviews and a few bad ones because we are human. That said, you will notice that we always try and resolve our complaints in a manner that benefits our customers. All I’ve ever asked of San Diegohomeowners is that when they are looking at solar as a way to reduce or eliminate their electric bill, please include us in their search, I’m confident they will like our style.”
