What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • 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
  • We had been considering solar power for quite some time, and having Western Solar's representative explain their system to us, we knew this was exactly what we had been looking for. The communication before and during installation and the actual installation itself was amazing! Western Solar's install crew are truly professionals. We would definitely recommend Western Solar to anyone.
    Gary & Pam I.6 kW solar PV system, Ferndale
  • Great job! Great communication! Western Solar made the entire process from information to presentation to power on, easy!  
    Scott B.4.8 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • I am very happy to have finally realized a lifelong goal to be a ‘producer’ rather than just a consumer of electricity. I like my system for the way it makes me feel on a sunny day. And on not so sunny days also! We are the envy of our local environmental discussion group for following through on ‘going solar’.
    Fred S.4.32 kW solar PV system, Kirkland
  • Western Solar was excellent to work with.  They answered all my concerns promptly and the installers were very pleasant to be around.
