Hiring West Seattle Electric was…
Hiring West Seattle Electric was one of the best decisions we've ever made. They wired our new-construction DADU and connected the service to the main house. Ryan gave us a very fair and accurate estimate. Mark, Eric, Mohammedi, Jay, and Cameron were all great to work with. They were punctual, friendly, and professional; also, collaborative and good communicators. And the total cost came in under budget, which is always good news! We highly recommend this company.

After multiple attempts and listening to a bunch of sick excuses about why they can't conduct their business in a professional manner I've given up on trying to get them to talk to me about solar for my home. I'll be letting my friend who recommended them know about this. I'll also let others not to waste their time.

Safety focused, modern-day professional, flexible….
Safety focused, modern-day professional, flexible. That is my 3 word, or phrase, review for West Seattle Electric & Solar.
If I go into detail, at first when I got the note from Cali about setting up an Zoom session, l admit I was a little unnerved, but in talking with Ryan even via Zoom, he knows what he’s doing. He was able to assess my needs and give me a “back of the napkin” estimate while finding the parts required, all within the span of our 30min Zoom session. Modern-day professional, knows what he’s doing plus uses today’s latest technology to get the job done.
Then, after I explained my situation, he was able to get a crew scheduled for my installation well ahead of my expectations. I made a point that I did not want to overburden his crews, but he was able to make it work, and for that I am most appreciated. Flexible.
Finally, but by no means the last which is why I put it first in my “3 word” review, Safety! Jay and his apprentice (ashamed to not remember his name for this review), were great. However, the reason I mention Safety focused is while they were working, I could overhear their conservations (small condo so I wasn’t trying to eavesdrop), and what would catch my attention is how Jay responded to questions with regards to safety items. For example, turning off the circuit breaker, when asked if it was off, Jay would respond to the apprentice “yes I did, but you shouldn’t take my word for it.” That is the prime tenet of LOTO (lockout tagout), in which the person working in the area should always verify the situation before proceeding with work - trust but verify. As someone that works in an industry with high-energy and powerful mechanical systems, I live that on a daily basis, but to hear that being coached to an apprentice, naturally, is very endearing, and to me that shows there is a good safety culture within the company.
Thank you Ryan, Cali, Jay and team.

TLDR: Safety focused, modern-day professional, flexible.

Unethical and deceitful. On…
Unethical and deceitful. On two occasions West Seattle Electric sent a trainee (who must be supervised by a licensed electrician) to my house by himself to perform electrical work. On the 2nd occasion a Seattle electrical inspector made an unannounced visit to my home. West Seattle Electric's trainee lied to the inspector - claiming his supervisor had been at the house and just left to go get supplies. In truth, up to that point the required supervisor had never been to my home. On this occasion West Seattle Electric/the trainee was written up by the Seattle code department.

My electrical issue remains unresolved and West Seattle Electric has now attempted to bill me for this fraudulent "work".

Hire anyone else

Ryan solved my problem over a Zoom call, no charge! who does that!!
He was very quick at responding to my issue I posted on Thumbtack and other sites.

He gave me few tips on managing some of the common electrical problems on my own.
He is great at giving advice if you are a rookie homeowner.

I would recommend West Seattle Electric and Solar to folks out here in the Seattle area and around.
