Baker Electric Solar Announces New Solar Canopy Alternative to Rooftop Solar

Baker Electric Solar announced that it is currently the exclusive San Diego installer of the new NRG Haven Solar Canopy. The canopy generates clean, renewable energy while serving as an aesthetically pleasing outdoor living and entertainment pavilion.

Escondido, Calif. January 14, 2014 -- Baker Electric Solar, a San Diego solar company specializing in residential solar and commercial solar installations, announced that it is currently the exclusive San Diego installer of the new NRG Haven Solar Canopy at the January 10-12, San Diego Spring Home Show. Engineered and built in the USA, the canopy generates clean, renewable energy while serving as an aesthetically pleasing outdoor living and entertainment pavilion.


The canopy is an architectural solar structure that blends form and function. It contains photovoltaic solar modules in the roof that provide shade and shelter, while generating power to offset a homeowner's utility costs. The attractive, customizable canopy creates up to 607 square feet additional outdoor living space. With a variety of materials and color options for the fascia, ceiling, beams and columns, it blends with a home's architectural style.

The NRG Haven Solar Canopy can be used in addition to a home's solar system or as an alternative to a rooftop or ground-mounted solar system. It generates up to 7.32kW of solar energy. Based on initial simulation testing by the manufacturer, the canopy produces enough solar energy to power 93% of an average household usage. The solar pavilion structures come in a variety of sizes: 15' x 14' – 2.44 kW; 7.5' x 27' – 2.44 kW; 15' x 27' – 4.88 kW; and 22.5' x 27' – 7.32 kW.

Benefits of the canopy, in the form of comfort, convenience, savings, and environmental sustainability, are:
Increases and enhances outdoor living space without increasing carbon footprint.
Reduces utility costs.
Supports the environment with clean, renewable power.
May increase the value of the home based on the additional outdoor living space.
Integrates seamlessly with home architecture and environment.

Homeowners are encouraged to speak with a Baker Electric Solar sales consultant to discuss if a NRG Haven Solar Canopy would help them save on their energy bills. The solar canopy structure enables homeowners to offset their electric costs with the local utility net metering program, as well as offset their tax burden as it qualifies for the 30 percent federal investment tax credit for solar projects. Baker offers multiple financing options including both zero interest financing to purchase and a zero-down, fixed monthly payment lease.

"We are thrilled to be the exclusive installer of the Solar Canopy for the San Diego region," said Baker Electric Solar President, Mike Teresso. "Homeowners can now add a beautiful solar pavilion for more outdoor living space while reducing their energy bill. The Solar Canopy was enthusiastically received at the first of our three home shows. Be sure to come out and talk with us at the Del Mar Home Improvement Show and the Spring Home / Garden Show."
