The New Day Solar Story

At New Day Solar, we are committed to improving the world we live in, as well as helping our community create brighter tomorrows!

Based in beautiful Murrieta, CA, New Day Solar, formerly Carlson Solar, was founded 23 years ago by Scott and Mary Carlson. Carlson Solar was a pioneer in the solar industry in Southern California, installing some of the first solar electric systems in San Diego and Riverside County. 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.
