“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!

“We choose Western Solar because they provided the more comprehensive design options and with very clear cost/benefit information than other contractors. The installation crew was excellent, very professional and efficiently installed our 56 panel system per schedule.

The whole process was simple and Western Solar was on top of taking care of every aspect.

  • My experience with Western Solar from initial contact, to site analysis to determine size and placement, payback projection and final installation was transparent, understandable and enjoyable.

  • Working with Western Solar was exceptional from initial sales inquiry all the way through to project completion and system activation. They have provided us with a complete turn-key solution with superior customer service. Communication with all members of their team have been professional and timely with the attitude that the customer always comes first. I am very impressed with Western Solar and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a solar system.

  • 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.

I just wanted to let you know that just about everybody that came to inspect the workmanship and even the PSE guy installing the new meter all agree that your work is top-notch. You can now add my name to that long list. I'm happy to have found you by the way of my neighbor, the Torgersen family, another of your satisfied customers. All the very best to you all. Many thanks, limo John
