Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Experience and Certification
  • Loan Options
  • Energy Storage and Powerwall
  • Solar Education

Experience and Certification

Puget Sound Solar was the first solar installation company in Seattle. To date, 35% of all Seattle-based solar owners have used Puget Sound Solar for installation services. Puget Sound Solar managers are all NABCEP certified, maintaining the highest star cards in the solar industry.

With over two decades of experience, Puget Sound Solar is more than qualified to manage each solar project from beginning to end, including design, installation, and assistance with utility and incentive paperwork as well as loan programs. In recent years, many solar installation companies have started to pop up, but Puget Sound Solar’s experience is unmatched in its service area.

Loan Options

In order to help as many Puget Sound residents gain access to renewable energy as possible, Puget Sound Solar has teamed up with two credit unions to provide zero dollars down financing solutions. The loan options breakdown as follows:

PSCCU Energy-Smart Loans

The Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union teamed up with Puget Sound Solar to provide cost-effective solar financing to those looking to reduce their carbon footprint and utility bills. Specifics include the following: 

  • APR: 3.24%–9.84%
  • Maximum Loan Amount: $50,000
  • Term: Up to 240 months

Verity Loan

Verity Credit Union also teamed up with Puget Sound Solar to make a difference in the community, helping individuals and businesses find solar financing options at discounted rates. Specifics include the following:

  • APR: 3.49%
  • Maximum Loan Amount: $60,000
  • Term: up to 20-year term
  • Re-amortize loan one time with no fee

While many solar installation companies offer financing options to clients, not many team up with credit unions and allow for customers to take advantage of state incentives to drive down the overall cost. This sets Puget Sound Solar apart from its competitors. 

Energy Storage and Powerwall

With natural disasters becoming more and more common in the western United States, the need for additional power sources has never been in more demand. The ideal complement to any solar photovoltaic system is energy storage in batteries.

Puget Sound Solar is certified to install both Enphase and Tesla Powerwall battery and storage systems. Not every solar company has the ability or access to battery equipment, making what Puget Sound Solar has to offer even more impressive. 

Solar Education

Puget Sound Solar has made it a point to provide educational and consulting services to those interested in renewable energy sources. Specifically, Puget Sound Solar has helped architects, engineers, real estate brokers, designers, and property managers with solar education resources.

The company conducts solar educational presentations laying out the latest in technology and installation tactics. Not many solar companies will make it a point to educate people on the importance and reliability of solar, but Puget Sound Solar does. 


The Bad

  • Service Area
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installation

Service Area

Most solar installation companies are geographically limited in some way. Generally, a solar installation company will provide services throughout the state wherever it is headquartered. Other limited solar installation companies will offer installation services only in a select few cities or counties within a state.

While some solar installation companies can service individuals on a more national or regional basis, that is not the case with Puget Sound Solar. The company services only the greater Puget Sound area, so not all Washingtonians can take advantage of its services. 

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installation

While not necessarily a “bad” thing, Puget Sound Solar does have other electric focuses as part of its offerings. Most solar installation companies only do just that — install solar systems. Puget Sound Solar has expanded into installing electric vehicle charging stations. This service has become a main offering of the company since 2006.


The Bottom Line

Puget Sound Solar has the experience, knowledge, and resources necessary to install and maintain high quality solar systems. The company offers unmatched workmanship warranties to its clients, multiple loan options, and installs tier-1 solar panels, inverters, and battery/storage systems.

That being said, only residents and business owners in the Puget Sound, Washington area will be able to take advantage of what the company has to offer. Other than that, Puget Sound Solar will likely provide a high quality service to prospective solar clients.
