Baker consultant and customers
Solar Home

The Baker Way is expertise and quality, backed by great service

Choosing Baker means you’ll have total confidence your solar installation will be designed for your precise needs, you’ll get top-tier products fitted with top-notch workmanship, and you’ll have the service and stability to keep it running for years to come.

You get the right solar system for your needs

Every solar system we sell is custom-designed for your individual needs. The concept of a pre-designed or cookie-cutter system does not exist to us.

Instead, we come out to your house and take measurements. We look at your electricity bill and size your system according to your individual usage. We ask financial questions and provide you all possible ownership and lease options.

When you’re making a big home improvement investment like solar, it’s the only way to ensure that the solar installation meets your exact needs.

Baker consultant and customers

We’re SoCal local

Local solar companies are better able to serve their customers’ needs. We’re based in Southern California, and only serve Southern California. Knowing your company is available to you whenever you need them is vital. With us, availability isn’t just a phone call but also local offices with representatives who can come to your home at a moment’s notice.

We’re here for the long haul

Baker Home Energy, part of the Baker Electric family, has supplied Southern California with energy solutions for 84 years. In the 15 years we’ve offered residential solar we’ve installed over 20,000 solar systems. So we’ve got both the experience and stability you need in a solar provider.

Unlike some solar companies who are ride-the-solar-boom startups or national private-equity driven firms more interested in closing the deal than making sure you’ve got a quality solar installation, we’re focused on business for the long-term. First and foremost, that means doing a great job for our customers.

We’re often asked to rescue ‘orphaned’ systems — where an unfortunate customer has been left with no support or warranty after their installer disappeared. Choosing us means confidence you won’t have to face that situation.

We’ve got the stability and customer base to stick around for the next 84 years. Choose us and you’ll have a family and community focused business that will still be here whenever you need us.

All in-house expertise, no subcontracting

We know that to do the job right, we need to maintain quality from start to finish. When we install solar in your home, every team member involved is from our own staff. They’re vetted, qualified, experienced, polite and conscientious. They even bring their own toilet!

Unlike national solar companies, who sell you the finance package then oursource installation to lowest-bid subcontractors, we maintain Baker’s quality and service at every stage of the process. If you ever have a question, we’ll take care of it then and there. You’ll never deal with call centers, ticketing systems or buck-passing with us.

We help make your home comfortable and enjoyable

We may be most famous for solar, but we also provide systems and services for a total home energy solution: air conditioning, heating, EV charging,  smart home technology and more. 

This depth of experience means we understand how everything interconnects, and we’ll design your solar system so that all your home energy systems run most efficiently, empowering you to enjoy your home in maximum comfort.

We are very impressed with the caliber of employees this company employs. It is a BIG investment for anyone who is putting in solar/batteries, etc., so you better get the best and most established company you can. There are solar company horror stories about “here today, gone tomorrow” everywhere you turn, but you won’t be one of them if you go with this 80 year old company. I chose them because they did a huge job for my employer 25+ years ago and I was a part of that build out. The company was very pleased. They’re still providing great service. A VERY special shout-out to Felix Ortiz and Bobby (sorry Bobby, I don’t know your last name). All the other folks who were here were great too. It was apparent that they enjoyed working with each other. Felix offered (and did) to paint the outside conduits to match our house. He was was not required to do it, but he did it to make us happy. You don’t get service like that anymore. Even if we have to swap out a light switch Baker is going to do it! Good job, Baker! Read more

Every step along the way with Baker to install solar has been smooth and efficient. They were straightforward, honest, and kept me up-to-date on everything. I researched solar companies and interviewed 3 of them. I was very impressed with Baker, plus they had the best reviews. Their prices were similar to other companies but they gave me an extra $1,000 off (someone referred me) and I am also going to receive $250 for a referral. I also took advantage of their no down, no interest, no payment offer that gives me 18 months to pay my solar installation costs. That allowed me to use my savings for a new roof and fence that I desperately needed. Go with Baker…you will have no regrets! Read more

What a great business to do work with! Their staff has been awesome. I have the pleasure of dealing with Jeremy Denton, from customer service, not only that he is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and takes ownership of the issue and follows up to get resolution, he also seems like a real genuine and caring person. One cannot hope for more from a business. It is so rare in the recent years to find good customer service, and this company exceeds all expectations. Thank you for putting so much emphasis on selecting the right people for your team. Read more

Gustavo Ruiz and his team (Alfredo, Luis, Roman and Bryan) were all very professional and courteous. They were knowledgeable about their business. They arrived promptly at the job site every morning. They performed an outstanding install. They policed the job site for cleanliness and parts before they left. I would highly recommend Baker Electric and this solar roofing team for future work. Tim Akenson and his team performed the solar electrical component install. The roof team did a great job of arranging and installing the solar panels on the roof. Tim and his team did a clean and organized install of all the electrical conduit and control boxes. The complete electrical install was completed in one day. The job looks great. The system was working properly and producing electrical energy that afternoon under test. Tim’s team was very professional, courteous and efficient in performing their job. I would highly recommend them and Baker Solar for future upgrades to my system. Read more

Excellent experience. The crews were very professional and quite large to get the required work done in one day. Roofers, then solar, then roofers again, 3 days. They were very respectful of our historic home and obviously had experience with red clay tile roofs. They were also able to work around our delicate gardens. Very, very satisfied. Read more
