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.

According to SEIA – the Solar Energy Industries Association, the solar electric capacity installed in 2013 alone will generate the clean energy required to power 960,000+ homes in the United States. Solar energy is an inexhaustible resource that can supply tremendous amounts of energy cleanly and efficiently. Unlike traditional power sources, solar energy is renewable and doesn’t pollute the atmosphere with harmful greenhouse gasses. Solar is a win-win. It’s undeniably better for the environment than traditional energy sources, like coal and oil, and it has the potential to save both homeowners and business owners big on energy costs.
