April 2, 2019 (San Diego) -- Baker Electric Home Energy, a leading San Diego/Escondido company specializing in advanced solar systems, home batteries as well as heating and air conditioning services and smart home solutions, hosted State Senator Brian Jones (Republican, Santee) on Friday, March 22.  The Senator’s visit was intended to gain a greater understanding of solar and home battery technology as well as renewable energy’s impact on the San Diego job market and economy. 

Following President Mike Teresso’s presentation describing Baker’s 80 years of history, market and portfolio of products and services, Senator Jones was given a tour of the Escondido offices and extensive warehouse.  Baker, ranked #1 in market share in the Southern California service area, has installed over 10,000 residential solar systems. Senator Jones learned about the strategy behind Baker’s impressive growth, their diversification and their upcoming April 2019 move to a new facility intended to house their growing workforce. 

At the conclusion of the tour Senator Jones said, “Baker’s impressive operations, 223 employees and growing market share have made them one of the most significant local, family-owned businesses in North County.  Their solar and home battery systems are helping homeowners in San Diego, western Riverside and southern Orange Counties save on their electricity costs and chart their energy independence.” 

“We were honored to share the Baker success story and our company operations with Senator Jones.  He has a clear appreciation for the importance of renewable energy to Southern California homeowners and its growing significance to our local job market and the state’s economy,” commented Teresso.
