Experts in Commercial Solar Panels

At Baker, we not only understand the value of being able to enjoy electricity at home, we know the benefits of running a business with no electric boundaries. That’s why we design and install renewable commercial solar power systems for businesses and commercial properties that provide solar electricity at a fraction of the cost you currently pay. With over a decade of experience in solar system installations for thousands of homes, businesses, government facilities and utilities, we know how to help you improve your business’s energy efficiency.

Staying on Top of Your Bottom Line

Companies all over the country are discovering the beauty and, more importantly, cost efficiency of solar electricity, and it’s easy to see why. Converting to solar power is one of the best financial and most environmentally-friendly decisions a company can make. Commercial solar energy makes sense, especially for companies in Southern California, a region blessed with remarkably consistent, direct sunlight. This remains a largely-untapped commercial energy resource. Energizing your company by installing custom commercial solar power systems will enable you to do more while consuming and spending less. This is the perfect way to implement a green ethos in the kind of tangible, goal-driven framework businesses need.

Rising electricity rates and generous state and federal incentives make a commercial solar panel installation a much more affordable proposition than it was even a few years ago. Plus, solar cells are efficient producers, which means you’ll be feeding power back to the grid, generating energy credits on your utility account to offset the power you use. In fact, commercial solar panel installations offers an annual return on investment of up to 12%. That’s just a little more than eight years until a full ROI, and in the meantime you’ll be improving your company’s public image and meeting internal goals for efficiency.

Plan for the long term with low risk, high return commercial solar power systems for your building. For more information about commercial solar energy systems, contact us and start the commercial solar assessment process today.

Ready, set, solar.

Switching your business to commercial solar is simple with Baker’s 5-step process: Consultation, Design & Customization, Financing, Installation and Maintenance.

Get Started

Converting Your Business to Solar

At Baker Electric Solar, we make the commercial solar panel installation process as simple as possible. From the initial consultation through ownership, our four simple steps will help you gain and maintain the commercial solar energy system that fits your business’s needs.

1. Consultation

We start by getting to know you, your facility and your power needs by asking the following questions to determine which custom commercial solar energy system will be best for you:

  • What is your electricity usage history?
  • What are your energy goals?
  • Do you expect changes in your energy use in the future?

Then we’ll perform a location survey to analyze your facility site, roof space and orientation to the sun.

2. Design & Customization

Based on our thorough consultation, our solar experts will custom design and engineer a commercial solar energy system to meet your specific needs, discuss pricing and financing with you and what to expect next.

3. Financing

For businesses who don’t have the means to make a cash purchase on their investment, Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing is a loan alternative that makes renewable energy upgrades or commercial solar panel installations more attainable for businesses by spreading costs over an extended period of time. Learn the specifics of PACE financing at www.pacenow.org.

4. Installation

Our experienced team of licensed contractors will perform a professional and clean installation, including the two-way connection between your new system and your local utility company.

5. Maintenance

Our commercial solar power systems are simple, yet durable, and a piece of cake to maintain. All of our systems have product and workmanship warranties, and you can trust that Baker will be around to service your system, should you need it.

Baker Electric, Inc.

Our philosophy is to provide cost effective solutions that meet and exceed the needs of our clients on every project.
