San Diego-based Baker Electric Solar announced today that it ranked No. 2 on the San Diego Business Journal's 2014 Alternative Energy Suppliers list based on its number of local employees as of July 1, 2014.

Baker Electric Solar, a San Diego-based solar company that designs, builds and installs photovoltaic solar power systems across Southern California, is pleased to announce it ranked No. 2 on the San Diego Business Journal's Sustainability Special Edition Alternative Energy Suppliers list. Baker Electric Solar was the second largest supplier featured on this year's list based on its number of local employees (78) as of July 1, 2014.

In addition, the September 1, 2014 issue reported that Baker Electric Solar achieved the largest percentage increase of employees from 2013. The 144 percent increase in employees supports Baker Electric Solar's recent Solar Power World Magazine's No. 22 spot on the publication's Top 100 Residential Solar Contractor's list, as well as No. 91 on the magazine's 2014 Top 400 Solar Contractors in North America list. Baker Electric Solar has installed a total of 26.549 megawatts, with 5.608 megawatts installed in 2013.

"It takes a large team of dedicated employees to achieve award-winning trade industry rank numbers. From the initial consultation through energizing, our company follows our Go Solar the Baker Way' formula," said Baker Electric Solar President Mike Teresso. "We attribute our growth and success to combining unmatched service, custom solutions, premium products and in-house expertise to do things the right way, so our customers feel good about going with the best solar company in San Diego for decades to come."

According to customer Rex Bright, Baker Electric Solar individualized a solar system for his family. During the consultation phase, the Baker solar energy consultant asked questions about how the family used electricity, and what they might use electricity for in the future. The team design and engineered the following custom solar system to meet the Bright's needs: a 7.65 kW solar system consisting of 33 REC 255 watt solar panels with one, made in America, SMA Sunny Boy 8000-US inverter. The roof installation totaled a PV surface area of approximately 490 square feet. Factoring in utility rate increases and locked-in low energy rate savings, the Bonsall homeowners are projected to save more than $95,000 over 25 years. The system will reduce CO2 emissions by 7.8 tons annually which is the equivalent to not driving 25,000+ miles.
