The Baker Way
transparent circle

All solar companies offer savings. But at Baker Electric Solar, it’s the service that sets us apart. The right way to do business is the Baker Way.

We always:

  • Discuss your needs, budget and dreams for the future. At Baker, our goal is to design, engineer, and install the perfect system that makes sense for the way you live your life while giving you the freedom to use electricity without guilt or worry about cost.
  • Provide great financing options, whether you buy or lease. First, we’ll help you decide whether leasing or buying your solar system is the best option for you. Then, we’ll offer various finance options based on your decision.
  • Keep everything in house—no subcontracted installations. From design to installation to customer service, we take care of it all so you know who you’re dealing with at all times, with consistent, quality service every step of the way.
  • Exceed industry standards for every installation. Backed by Baker’s workmanship warranty and the guarantees of our carefully selected product partners, everything from the product, to the install, to the system’s performance is under warranty so you can switch to solar with the confidence and support you deserve.

It’s the Baker Way. And it’s how we’ve done business for 75 years.

Powered for 75 years and counting.

As a fourth generation, family-owned business we’ve serviced SoCal needs for electrical systems since 1938.

In the past 10 years, we’ve become a leading contractor in renewable energy technology as well, and have installed thousands of solar powered systems across Southern California. Our commercial solar installation experience is extensive, with over 500 MW of solar contracted to date. NB Baker Electric, Inc. was formed in 2007 to facilitate our continued expansion into the residential solar installation sector.  We have over 3500 residential solar customers within our San Diego County, Orange County, Riverside County and San Bernardino County service area.
