What Our Solar Customers Have to Say

  • Thanks for making this happen in such a tight timeframe!  We appreciate your hard work.
    Darrin D.5.76 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • 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
  • 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
  • I was referred by my neighbor. Josh and Eric were always available. The work was very fast and professional.
    Robin L.4.32 kW solar PV system, Bellingham
  • 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
  • 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!
