“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.

“Adding solar power was the easiest part of my entire project. I wish every contractor and company I had to deal with was as fast and efficient and friendly as Western Solar!

  • Western solar was professional from start to finish. I’ve already referred people.

  • 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.

  • During the whole process from initial contact to the completed job, we felt that the team was committed to installing the best system possible for our needs. The installation team was great. They were considerate and easy to deal with. Their work got high praise from the inspectors who cleared the permits.

  • 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.
