Stellar Solar Founding Partner and solar industry expert Michael Powers, who has personally driven and advocated electric vehicles since 2010, was excited to submit a series of questions to such an auto industry insider: “Even 10 years ago, the forward thinkers in the solar industry were predicting the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, so to have all of the major automakers offering currently offering several EV options with more on the way is very exciting for us. Stellar Solar was ahead of the curve in offering EV chargers and battery storage to power EV’s for several years now. David’s connection with Michelle allowed me to pose some EV related questions that have been top of mind for some time, to an auto industry expert.”

Krebs added: “What the solar industry is doing by powering auto dealerships with solar is a natural fit for both parties and provides excellent marketing opportunities to help spread the widespread adoption of EV’s and solar.
