As an Orange County resident, switching to solar panels for your household energy consumption is a wise decision. The money you save on utility bills translates to higher returns on your initial investment of purchasing a solar photovoltaic (PV) panel system. You will trade an expensive utility bill for a much lower monthly solar payment that contributes toward the ownership of your home PV system and qualifies you for the federal solar tax credit

Selecting a solar PV system that meets your energy needs and your budget is critical to accomplishing your renewable energy goals. That’s why you need a trusted solar partner who can help design the most efficient system for your individual household. 

Baker Electric Home Energy has been serving the Southern California community with energy solutions for 84 years. Our team of local, highly experienced solar consultants provides outstanding customer service, making us the best Orange County solar company. 

We are committed to addressing all your concerns about going solar and determining the right solar PV system for your home. 

How Does Solar Work in Orange County?

Orange County enjoys an average of 278 sunny days a year, making it an ideal location for reaping the benefits of solar energy. As a local resident, you can self-generate heat and electricity for your home and reduce your dependence on electricity from the grid by installing a PV system. However, you will continue your relationship with your utility company.  

Under Net Energy Metering (NEM 2.0), you can send the additional energy you generate with your home solar system back to the utility company and receive credits in return. These energy credits can be used to pay for grid electricity consumed at night when solar panels are not generating electricity. However, you’ll still need to pay some nominal charges that solar cannot offset, like power line maintenance and low-income household assistance. A zero balance for your electric bill is still possible with a correctly designed solar panel installation.  

With Baker Electric Home Energy, a solar installation in Orange County involves four easy steps: Consultation & Design; Engineering; Installation; and Operation. As the best Orange County solar company—with over 16,500 satisfied customers to date—you can rest assured that your home solar installation is in expert hands.

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

We did not know a lot about solar. Speaking with our Solar consultant, he was there to answer any of our questions. He was always there when we needed him. Everyone is professional and polite. We could not have gone on with a better company.
