Baker Electric Solar Named One the Best Places to Work in San Diego for Second Year

Baker Electric Solar was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in San Diego was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the area's best employers.

Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar provider and SunPower Elite Dealer, was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in San Diego in the medium category for the second year. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in San Diego was created by the San Diego Business Journal, Best Companies Group, and sponsors Kaiser Permanente and GreenRope.

The Best Places to Work survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego. Baker, an industry-leading solar company currently employs more than 180 employees. A contingency of Baker Electric Solar team members attended the awards ceremony at Paradise Point Resort & Spa.

Competing against other businesses throughout San Diego County, it was a winner in the medium category (50-249 US employees) based on an extensive set of company and employee information. Baker Electric Solar's employee experience survey indicated that its employees were highly satisfied with Baker's overall engagement, pay and benefits, training, development, resources, work environment, corporate culture and leadership.

Companies entered the program by completing a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

"It's a distinct honor to be named one of San Diego's Best Places to Work for the second consecutive year," said Mike Teresso Baker Electric Solar president. "All solar companies offer savings. But at Baker Electric Solar, it's our people and the service that sets us apart. This recognition is a testament to our best practices of rewarding hard-working employees, investing in employee training, and providing opportunities for team-building and social activities. It's the Baker Way. And it's how we've done business for 75+ years."

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
