Tesla Powerwall Home Battery Installation August 18, 2020

Tesla Powerwall Home Battery Installation August 18, 2020

electrician2020
This install consisted of two Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Batteries, a Gateway 2 and a critical load panel. The Gateway 2 is a nice addition to this install as it matches the Tesla car-white finish that comes with the new Tesla Powerwall 2. This Home Battery install was an add to a previous Solar System that had already been installed by Baker years before. The home back up system was partial and not a full Home Battery backup. The owner was very pleased with the results.

BAKER SOLAR CAN BECOME YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!! THEY CERTAINLY BECAME MINE IN 2020!! I did my research to a reasonable degree and concluded that Baker Solar sounded like the best choice for solar. They “sounded” that way because the salesman, Donald I., made false and inaccurate statements to us when we were in his presentation. Specifically, he assured us that our new Baker Solar system would be “m...

We are sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the service we provided. The failed breaker has been replaced and your system is properly operating again. Should you wish to reconsider, our offer to reimburse you $1,400 for the lost production (beyond our contractual obligation) still stands. Despite the production loss, your home consumed an estimated 6,600+ kWh's of energy beyond what the system...

We recently had 2 Tesla Walls installed by Baker Home Energy. The field techs were very professional, and friendly. They completed the job on time, left our garage cleaner than it was before they came, and did a wonderful job. This is the second time we have used Baker Home Energy. We had solar panels installed 6 years ago, and both times we have not been disappointed with the product or the servi...

Baker mentions that they have a monitoring of your system through SolarEdge. Baker Electric does not do any monitoring. If your system goes down for 6 months and you do not know it, they will not inform you and will not reimburse you any of the $$$ SDG&E would buy back. I had a 3K electric bill after two years of bills being $140. I had believed they were monitoring my system. They would not do an...

We initially met with Randy I., who is an incredible wealth of knowledge in explaining our AC/Heatings system options and answering questions to our satisfaction. We never felt pressured to purchase but were won over by the product facts he presented based on our needs. In the end we were confident the product we were buying was best for our situation. The installers, Jacob B & Eric B arrived on t...

Baker installed Solar + Battery at my home in July 2019. The experience was excellent from the initial sales meeting through install and final activation. The install was completed in less than two days, and the installation crew went above and beyond to work with me to map out all the circuits, which were previously unlabled, to help decide which circuits should run on battery in event of power f...

For the most part I would like to give them an “A” but the final outcome has left us in an unsafe position. They partially stripped a lug/bolt that goes to our electrical panel. This is unsafe and needs to be fixed. Unfortunately, as they admitted, they haven’t been in this position before and found out it would cost $2k to replace the panel or more for it to be inspected. So of course they’re put...
