Escondido, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Baker Electric Solar, a San Diego solar company specializing in residential solar and commercial solar installations, is pleased to announce its first of five solar open houses. The North County-based award-winning solar installer is featuring a residential installation in Ramona. San Diego homeowners are invited to attend the complimentary open house on Sunday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 16823 Open View Road in Ramona. Attendees will tour a live solar installation and get their questions answered by Baker Electric Solar energy consultants.
The Baker Electric Solar rooftop-mounted 10.46 kW solar system consists of 32 SunPower 327 watt solar panels with a PV surface area of approximately 480 square feet and two Power-One 5000 inverters. Factoring in utility rate increases and locked-in low energy rate savings, the Ramona homeowners are projected to save more than $91,000 over 20 years. The system will reduce CO2 emissions by 10 tons annually -- equivalent to not driving 24,000 miles.
To accomplish the homeowner’s goals of immediate and long-term savings, this family decided to go solar utilizing a $0 down monthly lease. The monthly lease payment is less than their average electric bill, creating immediate monthly savings. The monthly payment for solar will never increase, allowing the homeowners the ability to lock-in a rate for electricity that will be consistently lower over the next 20 years, even as utility rates are anticipated to rise.
Open house attendees may enter to win an iPad mini valued at $299. No purchase is necessary to qualify for the drawing on June 15. The 16GB, Dual Core A5 Chip iPad mini with Wi-Fi has a display of 7.87” H x 5.3” W. Weighing in at just over a half pound, the iPad mini is ideal for monitoring a homeowner’s solar system using a free app that connects to the system’s production monitoring.
Visitors will get a chance to see the homeowner’s before and after electric bills. Baker solar energy consultants encourage attendees to bring their electric bills to the event. A consultant can estimate on the spot the monthly savings a solar system would provide the homeowner. Ramona is known for its sunny Mediterranean climate with more than 265 sunny days a year. It is an ideal location for homeowners to take advantage of San Diego’s year-round sunshine with an energy-producing, dollar saving solar system.
“Attending an open house is the perfect way to quickly see what a system consists of and how it works,” said Baker Electric Solar Residential Sales Manager, Andrew Berlin. “We encourage homeowners to take advantage of the existing energy tax credits, and we have financing options available that make solar a very affordable home improvement. Government incentives may pay for over 30% percent of your new solar system. Join us Sunday to learn more.”
As a Baker Electric Inc. family company, Baker Electric Solar, has the 75-year history, backing and diversification of an experienced electrical contractor founded in 1938. Offering sun-powered options since 2003, the companies have helped more than 1800 San Diego County residents use the sun to save on their electric bills.
