What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Work began two days earlier than scheduled!  We were very happy!
    Paul S.4.5 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • 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.
    Ted W.7.2 kW solar PV system, Kenmore
  • 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!
    Alexandra S.5.76 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • 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.
    Lyle A.5.67 kW solar PV system, Blaine
  • Very good daily communication about the project.This was a more completed solar installation with multiple parties to interface with. There were a number of issues that arose during the construction which were quickly and completely resolved to my complete satisfaction. Good job all around.
    Eric S.18.72 kW solar PV system, Anacortes
  • I am very happy to have finally realized a lifelong goal to be a ‘producer’ rather than just a consumer of electricity. I like my system for the way it makes me feel on a sunny day. And on not so sunny days also! We are the envy of our local environmental discussion group for following through on ‘going solar’.
    Fred S.4.32 kW solar PV system, Kirkland
