And the solar expansions continue! 

This week, southern California solar provider Baker Electric Solar announced a move into new, larger headquarters in Escondido. The company plans to increase its workforce by 50% as it continues to grow in the residential and commercial markets.

Baker Electric Solar says the larger space positions it to continue its exponential growth. The company doubled its residential solar installations from 2012 to 2013, and in 2013 it earned the Angie’s List Super Service Award. Baker has helped more than 2000 homes across Southern California go solar.

The company has also installed commercial and utility-scale solar projects, one of which came in at over 61 MW. Its commercial projects to date total over 81 MW — enough power to supply the energy needs of about 27,000 homes.

Baker Electric Solar President Mike Teresso said in a statement, “In this growing solar market, both residential and commercial customers are seeking a solar installer with the experience that Baker offers. Acquiring the new facility was not only a necessity to respond to the growth, but it also serves as a statement — ‘We’re here to stay.’”

“The Baker family has created a history and reputation for providing quality electrical contracting services for over 75 years,” said CEO Ted Baker. “Baker Electric Solar is a forward-thinking company. As CEO, it’s my goal to have the Baker name as synonymous with renewable energy as it is now with electrical contracting. The growth and success of Baker Electric Solar demonstrates that we are well on our way to extending our four-generation legacy.”
