  • "I've chosen Puget Sound Solar"

    Reviewed Dec 15, 2021

    I did a lot of research on solar and chose Puget Sound Solar. I enjoyed reading the bios on the staff and felt like I understood them and their business model before I called. When I did call, they answered my questions thoughtfully. They spent time on phone and video meetings to go over options, installation details, and general concerns. I appreciated that they did not push but kept me informed of their work load so I could make the best decision for my needs. Solar is an investment and not inexpensive, so having different options from types of solar panels to the number of solar panels with varying costs was helpful.

    The decision to go solar was quick for me. Picking the right company took longer. Thankfully, I found Puget Sound Solar - a local company with a strong reputation. Every person on their team was great to work with. You could tell they cared about what they were doing and wanted to do it well. They took the time necessary to get everything right. Communication was timely, friendly, and honest. The quality of the installation was high. They didn't cut corners. I have a lot of confidence about working with this company for any support I may need over the lifetime of the equipment.

    I requested quotes from 3 different companies for the system on my small 3BR/1 story home in Burien, WA. PSS responded immediately and scheduled a time to discuss my needs. After supplying the requested copy of my electric bill, they presented 3 options for my site. I heard from 1 other company, who priced themselves out of my budget, and never heard from the 3rd. I was familiar with PSS's longstanding reputation as a solar provider in the Seattle area, so they won my business. The team showed up on the install date and had everything installed in half a day. Any questions I had were promptly answered and I remain a satisfied customer to this day. I even brought them back to upgrade my system with additional panels when my budget permitted. The use of micro-inverters made the additional panels easy to integrate into my existing system.
