Baker Electric Solar Celebrates National Good Neighbor Day Sept. 28 with Free Energy Saving Books

Baker Electric Solar is encouraging neighbors to have solar energy conversations on National Good Neighbor Day Friday, Sept. 28. San Diego County homeowners who have solar systems and share their experience with a neighbor will both receive a 128-page book of energy-savings tips.

Baker Electric Solar, a full-service solar integrator specializing in green technology design / build residential solar and commercial solar installations, is celebrating National Good Neighbor Day Sept. 28 with the gifting of energy-saving books. Baker Electric Solar (BES) is encouraging San Diego County homeowners who have a solar energy system to share their experience with a neighbor. To acknowledge the green outreach, BES will give each neighbor a copy of "How to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint – 365 Simple Ways to Save Energy, Resources and Money" by Joanna Yarrow.

San Diego County has more than 10,000 solar residences. In observance of the original purpose of the day to show appreciation for one another, homeowners who make an effort to take a few minutes to reach out and talk to a neighbor and share how solar is working for them could make the day not only a neighbor-friendly one, but also create a "neighbor-to-neighbor" green conversation.

To promote the exchanges, Baker Electric Solar is giving both San Diego County neighbors a free copy of "How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint – 365 Simple Ways to Save Energy, Resources and Money" by Joanna Yarrow. In keeping with the message of sustainability, BES is purchasing the books via the Barnes & Noble Marketplace, where buyers and sellers meet to exchange books.

National Good Neighbor Day was established in the early 70s, Becky Mattson from Lakeside, Mont. recognized the importance of good neighbors, and started the effort to make this a National day. With the help of congressman Mike Mansfield, she succeeded in having three Presidents -- Nixon, Ford and Carter issue proclamations. In 2003 the U.S. Senate passed a resolution making Sept. 28, National Good Neighbor Day. Previously, the day was celebrated on the fourth Sunday of September.

To qualify to receive a free copy of the energy-saving book, San Diego County neighbors need to email their name, address and phone number to by Oct. 13, 2012. Please reference "National Good Neighbor Day 2012" in the body of the email.

"Being good neighbors is an important part of the social fiber of our community. Conversations over the fence' foster goodwill and create support and friendships," said BES President Ted Baker. "If giving a neighbor the good news about electric bill savings with solar can help them too, it's a win-win."

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
