"Going Solar with Evoke"
Reviewed Feb 24, 2019

I started my quest for solar in the spring of 2018. I chose to go with Evoke Solar Inc to compete the process. Wes & Roshelle Checkeye, Stefan, Dan, Courtney, Shelly, and the rest of the team will answer any question you have and walk you through the whole process of going solar. If they determine that your property is not viable for solar, they'll tell you and not sell you a system that's not going to work the way it should. I had my system installed Feb 19, 2019. I'm waiting for the final approval to go through after all the inspections, permits, interconnection agreements, etc were completed. The Evoke team handled all that and made the process go smoothly. I'm expecting to throw the switch this week, hopefully, and start producing my own electricity via the power of the sun:) A big t hanks to all the Evoke Solar Inc team for a job well done!!

The entire experience with Evoke has been great. Courtney, Roshelle, Dan, and Stefan have been great. They installed a wonderful system with even better customer service.

"Awesome Experience"
Reviewed Nov 30, 2018

Evoke made the whole process of going solar really easy. I am very particular in respect to attention to detail and aesthetics, which is a big reason I choose Evoke. The system looks great and the whole team, Wes, Marc, Dan and Courtney were a pleasure to work with. The install team, led by Wes (owner), treated my home like their own! We will be turning the system on this week and can’t wait to see it operating. Would highly recommend the Evoke team to anyone interested in going solar.

"I recommend Evoke Solar"
Reviewed Nov 23, 2018

The sales person was very low key, not pushy at all. I liked working with a small local company. They offered me a choice of different solar collectors, unlike some companies that only sell one kind. I feel that I can easily contact them at any time if I need them. All of the employees at the company were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Dan in the office was always available by phone. I highly recommend them.

"Removal and Reinstallation"
Reviewed Oct 22, 2018

We were going to replace the shingles at our home, so we needed the solar panels to be removed and reinstalled. Since the company that installed them in 2008 was no longer in business we needed a new company to do this. We believe Evoke Solar gave us a fair price, but more importantly they did an excellent job. They were very quick to respond to our requests, made sure they scheduled the jobs around the time of shingle installation so we would have minimal number of days without the panels. Also, after both times, they immediately sent the pictures of the roof so that we will see what happened up there, including the removal of a squirrel nest. We will highly recommend them.

"Good people, good installation, good system"

Great company. Wonderful to work with every step of the way, personal service, and fantastic results. We not only love that we're "off the grid" but we think the panels look great too.

"Overall Positive Experience"

Evoke Solar provided an extremely professional experience. Having shopped around, their price, the products, and the installation was far ahead of their competitors.
From meeting the sales Rep to installation by Wes and crew , everything was smooth and easy. The support staff Roshelle, Courtney and Dan were always available for any question I have regarding the installation & paper work with PSEG.
Overall very positive experience.

"Couldn't be happier!"
Reviewed Mar 13, 2018

We are so excited to have a solar system installed and operating on our property! It is something we have talked about for years. After researching options in our area and following recommendations, we decided to go with Evoke Solar and we are so glad we did! The entire process from the initial site inspection and job estimate through the local zoning/permit process through installation was professional and informative. The entire team is knowledgeable and friendly. We happily recommend Evoke Solar to anyone interested in going green. Take the next step and give them a call… you will be happy you did!

"Outstanding Job on Our 5.9 kW Solar PV System"
Reviewed Oct 31, 2017

Working with Evoke on our solar PV project has been one of the most rewarding experiences of our home ownership. From Marc's friendly, informative, and flexible sales approach to Roshelle's super efficient management of the design and permitting, to Wes's expert preparation for and execution of the installation, to the seamless registration of SRECs, and even the resolution of an unusual issue with the monitoring of our home electric usage, all aspects of the project were handled in a top notch manner. We can't be more pleased with our decision to go with Evoke and are glad to give them our highest recommendation.

I am so happy with Evoke Solar. From beginning to end Wes, Roshelle and crew were amazing. They were very professional, cleaned up and left my house in great shape.

What a pleasure to work with Evoke for my solar installation. The personal attention Wes gave the project could not have been better. Starting with the interview to determine a design to meet our objectives and providing several options with all the economics to the completion of the job the experience was outstanding. The installation went according to schedule and the start-up was without incident.

"Evoke Solar/ Excellent contractor"
Reviewed Aug 11, 2017

I contacted Evoke solar in the fall of 2016 for possible ground mount solar system. They were the best company I found! Most companies won't even install ground mount systems. I spoke to First light energy and got nothing but voicemails and nobody would come to give quote, and Trinity solar doesn't do ground mounts so they were out.
I spoke to one of the salesmen named George and he was nothing but pleasant and straight forward. He gave me a price that included permits, plans, install and setup. Everything was included.. They even got me setup with financing with Sungage solar loan company. The loan was for 6.9% better than any local bank or credit card you would get for such an project.
Wes the owner came and looked at the property before the install and we setup the location of the panels about 200' from my house and the wires had to be installed in underground trench from house to panels. Wes and his wife were great with everything especially the building inspector who was not experienced with the ground mount system. After many weeks of back and forth engineer reports the system got installed in a few days.
All I can say is that the system works great, have no electric bill and also get solar renewable energy credits (SREC) every month which you sell and get money for (only on owner owned solar systems).
I would recommend Evoke Solar to anyone that wants a great solar system. If you are in the market for a ground mount system because your roof is shady or pointed in the wrong solar configuration, Evoke Solar is your company! Hunterdon County, NJ

Evoke Solar did a beautiful job installing and instructing my family on its works . Wes and his wife Rochelle were on top of the whole process and left nothing undone . The energy saving are the best part. Also they were very willing to come when we had a electric outage and restart the system . Their interity is a big factor for choosing them and stand behind their work.

In early 2013 I contacted Wes at Evoke Solar, I was interested it solar power but knew nothing about getting a system installed. Wes was very patient and answered my many questions.

I evaluated about six solar installers, and selected Evoke Solar to be our installer. Wes, Roshelle, and Nate were great to work with, very competitive in price, and performed a very professional, high quality installation.

I first contacted EVOKE Solar to assist me with an existing SunPower system. I was adding on to my home and needed some solar feed-lines re-routed. Wes Checkeye (company owner) took care of the re-routing in one afternoon. I later decided to add another 6K of solar to my addition. Wes came out and gave me a very competitive price. He then started work on the plans and paperwork. When the addition was ready I notified Wes and the installation of my new system was completed in one day with Wes on the roof the whole time supervising his crew. All wiring was completely concealed within the new construction (no exposed PVC pipes). The other great thing about working with EVOKE solar is the office Manager Roshelle. She handled all the paperwork and permits and was able to answer every question. I decided to make my second system completely separate from the first for SREC purposes. This brought about more paperwork, but Roshelle handled it all perfectly. EVOKE solar is a quality Solar company run by knowledgeable professionals. I continue to recommend EVOKE Solar to those who want the very best.

We had several quotes for solar on our roof. In the end we ended up getting a 7.2 kW roof mounted system. Wesley and evoke solar were amazing they were by far the best company to work with, they were quick and efficient. Wes helped us navigate all of the paperwork and recommended installation options no one else even suggested. I highly recommendand. We have had our array for a year now and couldn't be happier.

"Trustworthy, Professional, & Friendly"
Reviewed Aug 04, 2017

Evoke Solar installed a 12.42kw system consisting of 36 SunPower 345w panels on the roof of my home last summer. They used SolarEdge technology for the inverter and to optimize and monitor each panel.

The system has been cranking out power, and I love being able to monitor generation on a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis with the SolarEdge app. I pruned a tree in the backyard and saw the difference on a panel that was being shaded.

I met with 4 different solar installers before hiring Evoke. I knew SunPower was a premium product but I want my panels to last, and the warranty meant a lot -- not to mention the aesthetics of these panels, plus the high efficiency.

Wes was highly professional incredibly friendly, and as I met other companies and did research online, I grew to understand just how knowledgeable he was. He modeled out probably a dozen different approaches to our installation, including using other brands of panels, different Sunpower panels (315/365 I think), and helped me understand all the numbers and optimize the setup to get the most value.

He was easy to communicate with by email and text message throughout the process, and along with Roshelle, Evoke was patient with all my questions, and kept me informed throughout the permitting process.

The whole experience was really the opposite of the impersonal, corporate approach that many big solar installers employ. There was no hard sell, no strong-arm sales tactics and no misleading information -- I really felt Wes was helping me plan this project with the same directness as though I were a family member, or if he were installing solar on his own roof. In addition, he was friendly to my dog and my kids every time he visited, and he and his installation team were conscientious and respectful of our house and property, which included treading carefully around a basement refinishing project that was going on at the same time.

Highly recommended. Call Evoke.

"They went the distance"
Reviewed Aug 04, 2017

We hired a solar consultant and Evoke, and they worked with us and the consultant in a very professional manner. Ultimately, through no fault of Evoke, we were unable to install the battery backup, which would have been a very complex installation. Throughout, they made sure we were satisfied customers. And when the new battery system becomes available, we will use them to install it.
