Baker Electric Solar Reaffirms Clean Energy Leadership Position with a Full Complement of Energy Storage Solutions

By expanding its service portfolio to include the Tesla Powerwall, LG Chem, Sonnen and Enphase home batteries, Baker Electric Solar solidifies its ongoing commitment to provide best-in-class clean energy solutions to Southern California customers.

Baker Electric Solar, an industry-leading Southern California solar provider has furthered its commitment to becoming the area's premier resource for the finest integrated energy solutions. By offering the best in both solar and energy storage, Baker is providing homeowners with expanded capabilities for smart energy production, management and control. The goal is to give homeowners the ability to zero out their electricity bills, increase their energy independence and deliver an optimal financial return.

Built on 79 years of electrical contracting experience and recognized as a leading full-service solar provider, Baker has partnered with the world's leading energy storage companies. "After more than a year vetting and installing numerous home battery solutions, it's abundantly clear that there is not one energy storage product right for everyone. Therefore, identifying an intelligent and robust set of battery solutions capable of meeting any homeowner's unique requirements was critical. We believe our partnerships with Tesla, LG, Sonnen and Enphase have allowed us to accomplish that goal better than any local solar provider," said Mike Teresso, President of Baker Electric Solar.
Batteries as part of an integrated solar + energy storage solution, enable homeowners to better control the variable nature of when solar energy is available for use within the home. Consumers can now keep and use more of their own solar-generated electricity as opposed to sending excess energy production back to the grid. Some energy storage solutions such as the Tesla Powerwall 2.0, LG Chem and Sonnen also provide emergency back-up power for essential electrical loads during grid outages.
With the advent of energy storage technology, homeowners who currently have solar systems are now in a position to be less reliant on their utility, maximize their solar power usage and achieve more energy independence. For consumers just considering solar, the addition of the right energy storage component is the perfect strategy for elevating their system benefits and realizing significant cost-savings.
As SDG&E and SCE move toward TOU (time-of-use) billing structures, energy storage takes on added importance. TOU will establish premium rates during evening hours when electricity usage is traditionally the highest. Those homeowners with solar + energy storage will be well-positioned to offset those higher costs by using the energy they've stored during those peak hours.
Teresso concluded by saying "Baker has known for quite some time that energy storage would be a game-changer for those who already have or are moving to the use of solar energy. By researching, careful testing and subsequently installing a range of residential batteries, we're confident we can provide consumers honest and informed guidance."
