WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Baker Electric was the right fit to install a 350-kilowatt 14-hundred panel solar system. By going solar we will save $120,000 each year reduce our electric bill by nearly 90 percent. This will allow us to provide an additional six hundred thousand meals to the community. I can't say enough good things about Baker Electric.
President & CEO The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank
We had the privilege to have Baker Electric install commercial solar systems at our San Diego and Solana Beach Locations. I say privilege because in both cases it was a fantastic experience. All in all, Baker is a solid company with a solid crew. Everything was extremely well coordinated and I highly recommend them.
General Manager, Morena Storage, Solana Beach Storage
After a nationwide search, we found Baker had the experience and did the best job of explaining the options. They worked closely with our structural engineering and steel contractor and added roof reinforcements designed to meet seismic requirements when the concern came up. Baker stayed on schedule, did a great job of communicating and even arranged the solar commissioning after-hours and on a weekend to help us avoid interruptions to our business operations.
President Marine Group Boatworks
As a charter school leader, I depend on reliable, responsive, and high-quality support from trusted advisors. I have found Baker Electric to fully meet and exceed those expectations. Their attention to detail and a wide range of knowledge on construction management and coordination was impressive. We found them to be approachable and invested, as they pursued our project with our best interest in mind and first. We were quite satisfied with the outcome.
Executive Director El Sol Science & Arts Academy
The whole experience with Baker has been excellent. The installation team was very professional and did a great job and left the site cleaner than when they arrived.
Excellent communication throughout the project! Everyone was very professional and friendly! They made it very easy for us. Highly recommend Baker!
