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!

    Denny Q.4.32 kW solar PV system, Anacortes
  • Work was completed on schedule and in a professional manner.  The electrical inspector stated that Western Solar was one of the best solar companies in Northwest Washingon.
    Robert M. 5.1 kW solar PV system, Anacortes
  • Very happy with all aspects of the project from inception to completion. Any questions I had were answered quickly and satisfactory. Quick install, nice, neat and they cleaned up after themselves.
    Rich B.3.36 kW solar PV system, Everett
  • 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.  
    Dennis H.7.2 kW solar PV system, Stanwood
  • The on-site technicians/workers were knowledgeable and great to work with. We would hire this contractor again, especially the electrician Eric!
