Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar company based in San Diego, has sent word on a couple recent commercial projects it has completed or is nearing completion on. Let’s take a look!

Baker Electric jewishFirst up, Baker designed and installed a 216 kW rooftop solar system consisting of 864 Hyundai 250W panels with 13 Solectria inverters on two buildings for the Jewish Family Service of San Diego (JFS). The agency will see a 70 percent reduction in their annual electricity bills based on past consumption and will save an estimated $76,000 in energy costs in the first year.

“The Jewish Family Service solar project is in direct alignment with its mission to build a stronger, healthier and more resilient San Diego,” said Baker’s Director of Commercial Solar, Scott Williams. “When combined with the California Solar Initiative rebate of more than $147K, the solar system will provide more than $2.5M in net savings to the agency over the 25-year warranted life of the solar modules. It’s great to know these funds will help and feed many people over the years.”
