San Diego Solar Panel Installations

Baker Electric Solar is the top rated San Diego solar power company.  We install the most technologically advanced solar panel systems and ensure the highest quality installations in the industry.  This claim is backup up by winning the Angie’s List Super Service award 4 years in a row, 78 five-star reviews on Yelp, and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.  The Baker family first started doing electrical contracting work in San Diego in 1938, something which no other solar power company in San Diego can say.  Nearly 80 years later, Baker Electric Solar has over 6,000 solar power installations throughout San Diego, Orange County and Riverside.

The difference between Baker Electric Solar and competitors is quality.  While other companies are cutting corners with cheap panels and low quality labor, Baker is able to provide competitive solar power system pricing using techniques such as buying in bulk and passing the savings to the customer, and using state licensed union electricians.  From inverter, to solar panel, to installation, Baker’s primary goal is quality.


Powered For Over 78 Years & Counting

When Baker Electric first started, San Diego County was home to only 300,000 people and Bing Crosby could be found wandering the halls of the newly constructed Del Mar Fairgrounds. Escondido, where Leroy Baker established Baker Electric, Inc. in 1938, was nothing more than a small town with dirt roads.

Today, Baker is still that local, family-owned business that has been servicing Southern California's electrical systems for over 78 years. 

Over the past 10 years, however, Baker has grown to become more than an electrical contracting company and has proudly become a leading renewable energy contractor as well. Our rich history as electricians has allowed us to gain extensive commercial solar installation experience, with over 800MW of commercial solar installed to date. Our residential solar installation experience is second-to-none, with over 5000 satisfied customers within our San Diego CountyRiverside CountySan Bernardino County, and Orange County service areas. In 2015, the Baker family of businesses collectively celebrated 1GW of installed solar (residential, commercial and utility).  We now do residential energy storage in San Diego as well.
