Stellar Solar Teams Up with Purdy Farms to Create the World's First Solar-Powered Christmas Tree Lots Stellar's Mobile Solar Station to power Purdy Farms Del Mar and Carlsbad locations

ENCINITAS, Calif., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Stellar Solar is providing its Mobile Solar Station to power two San Diego Purdy Farms Christmas Tree lots. The Mobile Solar Station will power the CFL lights on the perimeter of the lots and the electric chainsaws used to trim trees for customers.  It's the first known use of solar to power a Christmas tree lot and certainly the first San Diego solar power lot.

"When Stellar Solar offered to help power our lots we thought it was a great idea," said Michael Purdy of Purdy Tree Farms. "We use sustainable farming practices on our farms in Oregon and have moved towards making our lots even more environmentally friendly with CFL lights and electric chainsaws. Having the lot powered with solar panels just takes that even further, and it's a great-looking addition to our lot."

Kent Harle, founder and President of Stellar Solar, added, "We are always looking for innovative ways to utilize our Mobile Solar Station. Powering the Purdy Christmas tree lots is a great way to do that in a unique location and expose a whole new audience to the practical use of solar power. It makes sense given that they used solar power to grow these trees in the first place."
