San Luis Obispo-based REC Solar has acquired solar provider Stellar Energy, in an asset purchase, the company announced this morning. Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

REC Solar is led by Al Bucknam; the company is actually now owned by Duke Energy, which acquired the majority of REC Solar in February.
