Riverside County, like most of Southern California, has its fair share of sunny days. For local residents, it makes perfect sense to utilize this abundant solar energy to run their households. 

Installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system for your Riverside home can help you trade expensive utility bills for a much lower monthly solar payment. Every payment moves you closer to owning your PV system and qualifies you for the federal solar tax credit. All you need now is the right PV system to meet your household’s energy and budget goals.

Baker Electric Home Energy takes pride in being the best solar company in Riverside County. We have served the local SoCal community with energy solutions since 1938. Our team of experienced consultants is always ready to answer any questions about solar PV systems and help you select the right system for your home.

How Does Solar Work in Riverside County?

Net Energy Metering 2.0, feed-in tariffs, and time-of-use billing have reshaped the energy landscape in Riverside County. Homeowners must now design solar projects around rules that are applicable to both utility-scale solar and rooftop residential solar. The rules favor public utilities and reduce savings for solar PV owners with the electricity they produce: energy costs vary depending on the hour of the day. That’s why you need an experienced solar consultant to help you design a system with the latest technology to improve your cost savings and comply with these new rules.

Baker Electric Home Energy provides you with consultation and design, engineering, installation, and guidance for operating a solar PV system in Riverside County. As the best Riverside County solar company—with over 16,500 satisfied customers to date—you can rest assured that your installation is in good hands. 

Solar Panel Installation With the Best Riverside County Solar Company

When considering a home solar installation, you must look at several factors including the type of solar energy system (roof-mounted or ground-mounted), which brands to look for, your upfront investment, financing options, and available roof or yard space, among others. It’s best to keep an open mind when working with a solar consultant to explore all possibilities.

Baker Electric Home Energy’s solar energy consultants meet with you to get a clear understanding of your household’s energy needs. From there, we can determine whether a roof-mounted or ground-mounted installation is more suitable, and help you choose the right products and financing options to maximize your solar savings. 

Our free solar panel cost calculator helps you get a real estimate from real experts. It is customized to reflect the brands we recommend and the professional installation we provide. As the best solar company in Riverside County, we are committed to making your installation process smooth, reaching your renewable energy goals, and improving your savings.

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.
