WSW is one of the most experienced renewable energy companies in the Pacific Northwest. Since 2000, we have been installing solar electric, solar hot water, wind, and micro-hydro systems for our northern Puget Sound neighbors.
I attended a solar energy presentation from a Seattle company at the Indian reservation. . I learned enough to consider installation but It sounded like a time share presentation. I was encouraged to buy now. A one hour assessment of my house was made and a price of installation was given.
I called Whidbey Sun and Wind for a second opinion because it is a local company. The agent was very thorough in assessing our home for solar energy. It is a two story house with an unobstructed view South and a roof with concrete shakes. In a few days I received a very impressive written proposal with several options. We chose the 8.4 kw option because it had the possibility of being paid off by savings in 6 years. The system is larger and less expensive than the system proposed by the first company.
Installation began in February and was completed in 5 days despite somewhat rainy weather and the problem of working on a second story roof with slick fragile tiles. There were also cathedral ceilings below the roof that added to the complexity of the installation. The installers were excellent. Neighbors on both sides have expressed desires to install solar in the future.
Adam Wundrow supervised the project from proposal to completion and spent many hours solving a computer glitch that was interfering with the monitoring system.
I just received my first Puget Sound Energy bill since the installation. The three year average May bill (since we had installed a hybrid water heater) is $243.16. This bill is $93.83 with a 5 day longer billing cycle and 3 degrees colder average temperature than the previous year. I look forward to watching the electrical and tax savings and incentives lead to payment of the original cost of the system.
My insurance company did not raise my premium because of the installation.
