Solar News & Industry Updates

What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Great Job! I am looking forward to the savings!
    David & Joanne H.1.44 kW solar PV system, Lynden
  • The on-site technicians/workers were knowledgeable and great to work with. We would hire this contractor again, especially the electrician Eric!
    Lee J.9.84 kW solar PV system, Preston
  • 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
  • I’m so pleased with my installation! I hope to refer others to Western Solar.
    Denny Q.4.32 kW solar PV system, Anacortes
  • 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
  • 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
