Baker Home Energy #1 on Clean-Tech Companies List
Top of the SDBJ Clean-Tech List
The San Diego Business Journal recently published its 2014 Clean-Tech Companies list. Thanks to a portfolio of exciting projects completed this spring, Baker Electric Home Energy ranked No. 1 based on its number of local full-time employees. For example, the largest installation project to date was completed earlier this year totaling 61 megawatts (MW) with more than 680,000 solar panels.
According to the Journal’s Special Report: Energy & Clean-Tech Innovation, San Diego’s clean technology sector is flourishing: From solar power and wind technologies to clean transportation. The SoCal region is lush with companies pushing the boundaries in sustainability. At Baker, we are thrilled to be at the top, in a strategic position to continue our exponential growth. With our recent move, we more than doubled our office and warehouse space. Management projects our employment levels will increase by 50% — helping residential solar adopters save on their electric bill, as well as contributing to commercial and utility-scale solar PV projects.
With more than 10 years of solar experience under our belts, we’ve installed solar energy systems across Southern California. Our project experience is extensive, with the installation of more than 85 megawatts (MW) and more than 828,000 solar panels already contracted. Estimating the typical width of a solar panel to be 3.5 feet, if our installed panels were lined up side by side, they would span more than 500 miles.
In the Environment California Research & Policy Center April 2014 report: Shining Cities: At the Forefront of America’s Solar Energy Revolution, San Diego was No. 2 in the nation behind Los Angeles for the amount of solar panels installed and No. 4 for installations on a per capita basis. At Baker Electric Home Energy we are doing our part to contribute to this growth.
Our team of solar energy consultants and technicians has helped thousands of homeowners leverage the energy of the sun to save on their electric bills. Over the last five years, the industry witnessed a more than 50% decrease in the cost of solar panels, while the cost of electricity and energy constantly increased.
Our role as a No. 1 leader in the San Diego clean-tech industry is to be a shining example of a solar company willing to take the time to educate its customers and install the ideal fit solar system for their energy needs. With commercial customers, our goal is to install PV systems to project specifications, on time and on budget. Baker Electric Home Energy is proud to be the best and brightest in the business!
