Bell Solar Electric Overview

Established in 2006, we have evolved into a leading solar electric installer in Southern California and have built a reputation for our exceptional quality of knowledge base and service. Bell Solar Electric was founded by Jeff Bell and Tim Karinen. We are a State of California fully-licensed electrical contractor (License No: 935457), as well as NABCEP certified. We specialize in sales, design, engineering, project management, installation, monitoring and maintenance of custom solar-electric systems.

We approach every solar and electrical installation as if we are working on our own home. Great care is taken to ensure every solar panel and electrical wire is expertly installed and integrated into your home’s or business’s existing electrical system. There’s a big difference between good and great, and there is no reason to cut corners on any construction work involving your roof.
