"As a designer and manufacturer of golf simulators trusted by the pros, we wanted to identify a solar provider with the same commitment to excellence and customer service," said Full Swing Partner and Senior Vice President, Brian Arnold. "We did a lot of homework. After meeting with a number of representatives, Baker Electric Solar had the best reputation. They came to the table with an innovative and highly customized solution. We do look at price, but more than anything we wanted longevity. Baker aced that with more than 75 years in San Diego."

According to the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, Full Swing Golfs new solar system will save the equivalent of annual greenhouse gas emissions from 136,337 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
