    Steven B.4.62 kW solar PV system, Blaine
  • 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.
