  • Western Solar did a great job of designing a solar system that is perfect for our home.  The installation crew was very professional and had the system up and running in no time at all!  Josh has been great to work with and made sure the custom design (off our deck) fit in with the look of the home, while giving us the best solar production possible.  We love getting our electric bill to see how much our monthly savings are!  Western Solar knows the meaning of Customer Satisfaction!  Job well done!
