SAN DIEGO–(PRNewswire)–Stellar Solar will open its first retail, open-to-the-public solar store in San Diego County. The Stellar Solar Store will function as a product showcase and design center where residential and commercial solarproposals will be generated on-the-spot through state-of-the-art digital design tools. This will enable the home or business owner to see the proposed system laid out on their roof and to evaluate panels and inverters in a hands-on showroom environment. The Stellar Solar Store will also feature a variety of sustainable retail products for sale at affordable prices that will appeal to a wide range of the general public.
“With SDG&E’s impressive Energy Innovation Center opening right next door, we saw this as an opportunity to reach a wider residential and commercial audience than we could through traditional solar marketing,” said Michael Powers, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Stellar Solar. He added, “With the new lease and financing options we now offer, residential solar is not just for early adopters, but is now being purchased by a mass market of homeowners – anyone with electric bills over $100 per month. We also plan to power the Stellar Solar Store with rooftop solar and we’ll have our solar-powered all-electric Nissan Leaf available for customers to experience and provide another real-world application of solar power.”
Kent Harle, Stellar Solar CEO, added, “This is going to be a solar showcase where home and business owners can get a proposal generated in minutes and touch and feel the products that will be powering their homes and businesses. Stellar has always been a leader in driving down the cost of solar installations and we view this as another step towards driving down the total cost of a solar installation by simplifying the sales cycle for the customers that choose to buy at our retail location.”
Stellar Solor is located at 4730 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, adjacent to SDG&E’s new Energy Innovation Center.
A grand opening event will take place in early August.
