Brian Grems, Vice President of Engineering at Stellar Solar, had this to say about the performance of the commercial team: “Given the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic and economic fluctuations, both our residential and commercial businesses performed beyond our expectations. Our mix of commercial installations reflects our ability to install high performance commercial solar systems, some with commercial battery storage, on rooftops, carports, and ground-mount systems. These were installed with Stellar Solar as both the design-build contractor and as a subcontractor. Our commercial business development and project management teams are the best in the business at what they do.  Commercial Energy Consultant Marie Phillipp has a knack for presenting sometimes complex commercial solar and battery storage options in a manner that is easy to understand and makes sense for businesses, educational institutions, faith-based organizations and non-profits. Director of Commercial Construction John Darlington has experience managing solar and battery storage installations ranging from 20kW to 2MW. Having come from the construction management world, our contractor partners appreciate that he can step right in and become an extension of their team, integrating solar and storage with the construction projects. It’s a solid leadership team that combined with our dedicated commercial installation crew enables us to handle any size project.”
