Locally-owned and nationally recognized, we have hundreds of commercial solar customers throughout San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. We custom design every solar installation for our customers and offer purchase, finance, PPA and lease options. 

We help you gain control of your power with a solar system that delivers electricity at a fraction of the cost you currently pay your utility company.

With over a decade of experience performing solar system installs for hundreds of businesses, government facilities and utilities, we know how to help you improve your business’s energy efficiency. Commercial solar systems in San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange County, can be mounted on the roof of your building or integrated into a different application, such as parking canopies, depending on your facility space and location.

With over 150 commercial solar installations throughout California and a strong reputation in the electrical contracting industry due to our 78 year history, no other solar provider is better equipped to meet your energy needs.

Financing Options Available

You don't have to pay for the entire system upfront. Our team is trained to help choose the best option that fits your needs. By answering a few questions, we can provide a financing option from our approved and vetted financing parthers that fit your goals – helping you stay cash-flow positive for the life of the financing.

With generous tax incentives, simple payback for solar projects range between 5-7 years for most for-profit businesses looking to buy systems outright. For companies looking to have no up-front cost, there are multiple financing options that still save you money every month while making solar affordable. 

A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is essentially replacing your existing utility with a solar power system on your poperty and/or facility. With a PPA you pay only for the power generated from the system and a third party owns and maintains the facility. They take the tax credits and depreciation and pass the savings along to you in the form of lower utility rates. Terms can vary from 15-25 years.

Federal and State Incentives for Solar

There are two major incentives that make solar attractive for a business. The first is a limited time 30% federal tax credit – effectively providing a 30% discount of the cost of a solar power system in the first year. The ITC was set to expire at the end of 2016; fortunately, as of December 2015, it’s been extended for five years. It will retain the 30% rate until 2019. In 2020, however, the rate will fall to 26% and then further drop to 22% in 2021, after which it will remain at 10% for commercial solar. 

The second incentive is accelerated depreciation (commonly referred to as MACRS) which provides the ability to depreciate solar over 5 years with the depreciation front loaded at the beginning of the depreciation period.

Baker Uses Solar Power

We don’t just tell our customers that commercial solar is a good investment – we live it. In 2009, we installed an 85kW commercial solar power system on our corporate headquarters in Escondido, California. 
You know you are going solar with one of the best solar companies in San Diego because of our own commitment to powering our facilities with solar.
