Stellar Solar has been selected by Capistrano Volkswagen/Mazda in San Juan Capistrano to install a combined 134-kW solar system on the two dealerships featuring Q Cells 480-W panels. The systems are forecasted to produce enough power to offset 68% of the consumption of the Volkswagen facility, and 100% of the consumption for the Mazda facility.

Besides powering the dealerships, the strategic partnership with Stellar Solar will offer Capistrano VW/Mazda customers who purchase electric vehicles a full suite of clean energy solutions including solar, battery storage and EV connectivity to help power their cars with clean energy from the sun. The partnership is the first of its kind between an auto dealer and solar company in Orange County. Given the proliferation and widespread adoption of electric vehicles, it was a natural fit for both parties.

“We are thrilled to be making the move to solar. And to do it with a company with such an established track record of success and expertise in solar, battery storage and electric vehicle connectivity was just a bonus. It was their tagline of Electrify Your Life that made forming a strategic partnership and offering their full suite of services to our customers a no-brainer. I’m excited to be on the forefront of this and contributing to the clean energy movement,” said Capistrano Volkswagen/Mazda owner Miles Brandon.
