  • Very good daily communication about the project.This was a more completed solar installation with multiple parties to interface with. There were a number of issues that arose during the construction which were quickly and completely resolved to my complete satisfaction. Good job all around.

  • Five Stars!!! Our experience was fantastic! From the info session to the final inspection every step was perfectly painless and professionally executed. Western Solar, please do all types of contracting! I would hire your company anytime. I’ve been photocopying Callum’s business card and sharing with everyone. I could not be happier with Western Solar.

  • Power outage this morning. My SkyBox is up and running flawlessly. Hot water, hot coffee, cold beer (for later), internet, oh, and all of the critical loads weren’t interrupted. I can hear the neighbors’ generator, but not my SkyBox.
    Bo M.Skybox, Woodinville
  • Very satisfied with Western Solar from the time Callum came out, through the process of choosing our individual system and final electrical and panel install. Office staff was extremely helpful and quick to respond to every question I asked. Very good company to deal with!
