Solar News & Industry Updates

What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Adding solar panels to our house is a financially sound investment opportunity that offer a better than average rate of return for the life of the panels, is environmentally correct, adds value to our house, and is a feel-good thing to do. What more can you want?  
    Charles M.4.8 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • Just wanted to say thanks to Western Solar. It has been almost exactly one year since our system went online and we have had zero issues. Further, despite being a 26 panel system with slightly less than optimal angles and a complicated roof design Western Solar's prediction for how much the system would generate annually was within 1% of our actual generation for the past 365 days! If you've been on the fence about solar my advice is not to hesitate and give Western Solar a call.
    Jeremy R. 6.24 kW solar PV system, Mount Vernon
  • Western Solar staff was a pleasure to deal with in all aspects of this project. I think they have a good product along with excellent personnel and customer support.
    Dennis P.4.32 kW solar PV system, Mt. Vernon
  • 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
  • We've been very pleased with every step of the process. The professionalism and skill of all the installers was outstanding. It was all very seamless and we've had no criticism of any step. Seeing the meter running has been satisfying and honestly, a lot of fun. We recommend Western Solar without reservation.
    Bruce S. and Tracy L.4.86 kW solar PV system, Lynden
  • Great Job! I am looking forward to the savings!
    David & Joanne H.1.44 kW solar PV system, Lynden
