What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • 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!
    Robroy G.12.54 kW solar PV system, Deming
  • Western Solar staff was a pleasure to deal with in all aspects of this project. I think they have a good product along with excellent personnel and customer support.
    Dennis P.4.32 kW solar PV system, Mt. Vernon
  • Working on a historic house, parts of which are over 125 years old, can create problems for securing panels. Western Solar spent the time and effort to complete the project, even a month early! So now the Tennant house overlooking Tennant Lake in Ferndale WA has Western Solar panels producing green power!
    Kenneth F.4.42 kW solar PV system, Ferndale
  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
