What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • I am very happy to have finally realized a lifelong goal to be a ‘producer’ rather than just a consumer of electricity. I like my system for the way it makes me feel on a sunny day. And on not so sunny days also! We are the envy of our local environmental discussion group for following through on ‘going solar’.
    Fred S.4.32 kW solar PV system, Kirkland
  • During the whole process from initial contact to the completed job, we felt that the team was committed to installing the best system possible for our needs. The installation team was great. They were considerate and easy to deal with. Their work got high praise from the inspectors who cleared the permits.
    Ted W.7.2 kW solar PV system, Kenmore
  • Very impressed with Western Solar. On-time and very quick installation. The installation crews and office personnel were very professional, friendly and easy to work with. All the paper-work, permits, interface with Puget Sound Energy were all handled so that we did not have to deal with any of it. Great communication all around. System started generating electricity within 5 minutes of being energized. I also like having the phone App so that you can see exactly how the system is operating. Would definitely recommend Western Solar to anyone considering installing solar panels.
    Graham & Marian E.10.56 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • Western Solar was excellent to work with.  They answered all my concerns promptly and the installers were very pleasant to be around.
    Jim R.2.805 kW solar PV system, Anacortes
  • I was really pleased with how integrated the installation was from beginning to end. Josh was professional, responsive and helpful. I really appreciate all the info we were given about the credit union and how production credits work.  They didn’t just sell and install some panels and then leave us to figure out the rest.  That’s been huge.  We highly recommend Western Solar!
