"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.
