Review for Cascadia Solar (Frederickson Electric)
Since 2007, we have installed a wide range of residential and commercial solar PV systems throughout the west Puget Sound area, including some significant community solar projects that have garnered nationwide press.
Because of their careful design and quality construction, our solar PV systems have produced exceptional returns for our customers, while maintaining good looks that enhance property values and please the neighbors.

Our experience with Cascadia Solar was very positive from beginning to end. Our initial contact was with Dave Campbell, who took some information over the phone and then came to our house for a preliminary meeting and inspection, during which he reviewed our current electrical usage, the siting and suitability of our house for solar, and our current wiring and metering system. Dave was very pleasant to work with. He was able to answer all our questions and was very knowledgeable about the available federal tax credits and state and local incentives for which we might be eligible. He then created a detailed preliminary design and proposal which he came to the house to discuss with us. We were able to confirm the economic analysis and its conservative assumptions
There was some question as to whether we would be able to qualify for the incentive program with the Jefferson County Public Utility District, since that program was approaching its cut-off cap. We really appreciated how Dave was up front and honest about this, not promising anything he didn't think we could count on (although we are still hoping to be qualified for the incentive-we should know soon!).
The system should pay for itself even without the state incentive, so we decided to proceed. The final contract was lower than the initial proposal.
John and Peyton, who installed our system, were very pleasant, considerate, and efficient (and extremely sweet to our rather noisy little dog). They arrived and finished the job ahead of schedule. After the system was installed, Cascadia Solar arranged for all the follow-up inspections and for Jefferson PUD to install the new meters and replace the old transformer, all of which took place very quickly. Cascadia Solar handled all the paperwork, sending us anything we needed to complete by email so we could scan and return it. Then Dave came out to the house to show us how to use the Internet program that allows us to monitor the output of our system on a daily and long-term basis, as well as to check how each individual solar panel is functioning.
In conclusion, if you are considering installing solar on your house or business, we would highly recommend Cascadia Solar.
