Based in beautiful Murrieta, CA, New Day Solar, formerly Carlson Solar, was founded 23 years ago by Scott and Mary Carlson.

The company grew to become one of the most respected and leading solar electric installers in Southern California.

I am a new customer of New Day Solar and I am “above the moon” satisfied and relieved that I made the decision that I did. I researched the solar “game” for over a year and New Day won my business. They did so by being there for me on my time and offering me the best value for the best solution.

New Day Solar made it a new day! The pricing and finance options and how it was explained was great. When it came to design, panel selection, planning, and working with my utility company, they were awesome. Installation day was easy.

The installation team was on-time, efficient and courteous throughout the 2-day project.  New Day Solar is a class act. From start-to-finish, they delivered on their commitments, and I’m happy to endorse their services.
