Baker Electric Commercial Solar, a full-service solar company that designs and installs the most technologically advanced solar and energy storage systems in San Diego, recently completed a solar system for nonprofit Temple Adat Shalom. The 76.16 kW rooftop system will save more than 70% of the synagogue’s demand charges and energy costs. Temple Adat Shalom is located at 15905 Pomerado Road in Poway, California.
Temple Adat Shalom funded their solar system with a power purchase agreement (PPA).

As a nonprofit, a significant reduction of our electric costs while contributing to the conservation of the environment were critical” said Harold Dunn, the congregant in charge of spearheading the solar initiative. “After comparing solar vendors, we chose Baker for a number of reasons – the price was right; they managed the PPA financing; and have a very good reputation. Best of all, they were responsive throughout the entire project solving any challenges quickly and efficiently.”
“The Temple Adat Shalom solar project is in direct alignment with its commitment to fiscal responsibility and mission to fund education services and programs for the entire congregation,” said Baker’s Director of Commercial Solar, Scott Williams. “The Temple’s solar system will provide more than $1M in energy cost savings over the 25-year warranted life of the solar modules. We’re gratified these funds will help support their commitment to congregants for many…
