Solar News & Industry Updates

What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • We had only dreamed of having a solar system for our house until we learned about the federal and Washington state financial incentives that reduced our payback time for this investments from 20 to 5 years! Josh and the folks at Western Solar couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly and the installation was fast and smooth. We are the stars of our neighborhood!
    Lynne P.4.32 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • 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!

  • We had an outstanding job done by the team from Western Solar, from start to finish everyone involved exceeded our expectations. The quality of craftsmanship was superior. I’m sure that we will call on them again when we expand our solar system in the future.  
    Tim and Janet M.4.8 kW solar PV system, Snohomish
  • 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.

  • 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.
