The Baker Solution

Vista Gardens and a third-party consultant with Next Grid Partners, LLC had a solar capacity in mind when Baker began planning the project. At one point during the system planning phase, the project budget changed slightly. The Baker team quickly adapted to its clients needs and worked with all parties to reduce the system size after contract to satisfy the new budget requirement. In the end, the project consisted of a quantity of 480 360-watt rooftop panels with SolarEdge inverters, delivering 172.8 kilowatts (kWs) of clean, photovoltaic energy. Baker was able to provide a 5 year production guarantee for the whole solar installation - an industry rarity.
