Founded in 1938, Baker Electric Inc.’s initial venture into solar was in 2003 -- partnering with homebuilders to install solar systems on new homes. With the continued demand for residential solar, it launched NB Baker Electric Inc. dba Baker Electric Solar in 2007 to work one-on-one with individual homeowners who wanted to experience solar savings. Baker Electric Solar brings its parent company’s 75-year history, backing and diversification to its local home and small business customers. Together the companies have provided sun-powered options to more than 1300 San Diego County residents – with Baker Electric Inc. performing installations for a wide range of industries including school districts, universities, military bases, and medical facilities.
"We are pleased to welcome Baker Electric and Baker Electric Solar to the elite company of Solar Power World's Top 250 Solar Contractors," says Frank Andorka, editorial director of Solar Power World.
