SAN DIEGO, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Stellar Solar, one of California's leading commercial and residential solar installers since 1998 and winner of the prestigious UT San Diego Readers Poll again in 2015, has made three key hires to bolster their sales team due to a significant demand for solar from San Diego and Riverside County homeowners.
Two of the new hires, Connor Smith and Tom Woods come to Stellar Solar from a national competitor known more for their lease options and aggressive sales tactics. Both were seeking to stay in the industry yet with a more respected, locally owned and operated solar company that they felt comfortable representing. The third new hire, Tai Navares joins Stellar from a local solar installer and prior to that worked for another large national solar organization.
Stellar Solar Sales Managers David Gersz and Zachary Dowell were both ecstatic by additions to the team and had this to say about the hires. "This is not the first time we have attracted high performing energy consultants from big name national and local competitors. This trend has been taking shape over the past year with several other hires coming from similar national competitors. If given a choice, most salespeople, especially in the solar industry, would rather work for a company that does not utilize high-pressure, gimmick driven sales techniques pushing solar options on homeowners that are not in their best interest, while providing them the opportunity to make a good living. These big national companies, some of them publicly traded, are under huge pressure to drive sales at any cost and we see that in the tactics they employ like swarming neighborhoods with minimum wage canvassers and salespeople who put pressure on homeowners to sign contracts on the spot. Stellar Solar is a high-growth, profitable company but we have achieved our success in a manner that treats homeowners with respect and educates them on all their options. That is directly reflected in the fact that customer referrals are our number one source of new business. Connor, Tom and Tai recognized that and we are excited to have them on the team."
Stellar Solar offers no-cost solar site evaluations for home and business owners, 1.99% financing and lease options.
