What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Thank you for a job well done.
    Steven B.4.62 kW solar PV system, Blaine
  • Western Solar went above and beyond our expectations! Just a great experience. All of the people from the bid to the electrical work and the installation crew was very professional.
    Eric & Jane H.12 kW solar PV system, Sedro-Woolley
  • 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!
