  • I was really pleased with how integrated the installation was from beginning to end. Josh was professional, responsive and helpful. I really appreciate all the info we were given about the credit union and how production credits work.  They didn’t just sell and install some panels and then leave us to figure out the rest.  That’s been huge.  We highly recommend Western Solar!
