A note from zHome:

Kevin Charap and NW Wind & Solar Team,

I would like to thank you and your team for the successful installation of the 72.24 kW solar array at the zHome Project in Issaquah. I enjoyed working with you throughout all phases of construction. Your company made this installation very easy and enjoyable.

NW Wind & Solar’s high level of expertise and professionalism made the decision to work with your company the obvious choice. Out of 12 different bids from local solar contractors, your bid package was the most complete, informative, and economically suitable for our project. Your service and design expertise far exceeded my expectations.

NW Wind & Solar’s attention to detail was vigilant through all phases of construction and was crucial in making the project execution flawless. From rough-in to commissioning, your team worked well with all trades, communicated any needs clearly, and required no oversight or additional management. Your installers upheld strict safety standards, were extremely organized, and accepted only the highest quality of craftsmanship. You finished in advance of all project deadlines and charged the exact amount of the original quote. Hands down your company was the best subcontractor at zHome!

Thanks for the great experience.
