What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Great Job! I am looking forward to the savings!
    David & Joanne H.1.44 kW solar PV system, Lynden
  • 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
  • We are very pleased and satisfied with the excellent service from everyone at Western Solar. From the initial discussions of solar panel options with Josh, the politeness and competence of the installation and the final check, we could not have been more satisfied. Electrical issues in our building and some roof irregularity were identified and corrected. The customer service and follow-up have been outstanding.
    Hans D., Monroe UCC12.4 kW solar PV system, Monroe
  • Excellent service at every step, from initial contact to go-live. Friendly, professional and highly knowledgeable staff. I cannot imagine how any part of the process could have gone better.
    David H.12 kW solar PV system, Bow
  • Thanks for making this happen in such a tight timeframe!  We appreciate your hard work.
    Darrin D.5.76 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • When researching solar system for the house we interviewed five solar energy companies. We did an immense amount of research, and while all the companies gave us bids that were similar, Western was the only company that took the time to go on the roof with a small machine that mapped out the best position for the panels, whether they would be shaded anytime during the day and how much power they should produce to give us the best prediction of what to expect. This gave us comfort to know that we were only putting panels on our roof that would generate the maximum amount of electricity and so far they are right on target.
