Reviews & Testimonials

We met Burke at the home show. He followed up with us in a timely manner and was competitive with the other companies we checked out. Time frame from start to finish was less than thirty days. Others quoted as long as three months. Product was installed in half a day by a great bunch of guys working under less than satisfactory weather conditions. Would recommend EGT solar to anyone looking for a solar system.

Don’t use any other solar company in Idaho – EGT is the best and only company that offers full sales and service of your solar array. They don’t contract out to anyone like other companies do – plus, they are a huge proponent of solar in Idaho and keep your abreast of all key laws and issues related to solar – they have your back!

After being lied to from the door to door companies, I stepped into EGT to see if I’d find more of the same high-pressure sales tactics that I’d experienced from other companies. On the contrary, I was met with friendly faces who were more interested in educating me about the solar industry and how going solar may benefit me. It took me more than a year to finally choose to go solar, but I’d decided in my first meeting with Steve and the EGT crew, that they were the real deal and the only company worthy of my business. I’ve had my panels a couple of weeks now. EGT handled everything beautifully and continues to offer support if needed. I love that I have a local business with a storefront that I can step into if needed. Can the door to door guys say that?

Update: 7 months in and my opinion of EGT hasn’t changed. Happy customer.

Update: a year and a half since installation and the panels as well as EGT’s support of them are unwavering. Seriously, if you are thinking about solar, call them.

We interviewed several companies for two different solar installations. We found a continuum from very iffy to EGT. EGT has been around for years. They are honest, professional, and competent. If we do more solar projects we will, without a doubt, use EGT, and we recommend them to anyone planning to add solar to your home or business.

The landscape of solar power generation is changing in Idaho. Idaho Power has asked for and received permission to increase rates and make solar generation less a part of Idaho Power’s strategy moving forward. EGT has been a leader in sorting out the best path forward. We anticipate working with them for years to come.

I wanted solar power for my house in the fall of 2021. I got three quotes. The only one that I had any confidence in was EGT. The other two companies could not answer the most basic questions. EGT gave us the best quote financially and they were way ahead of the others in their knowledge of the technology and the process. The installation was flawless and very professional.

Fast forward 18 months and we are getting another solar installation done by EGT. This time we are including a battery backup and electrical panel upgrade. They will be installing a state of the art system to better take advantage of the solar power generated. As a sales representative Burke is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He has been very easy to work with and he seems to be working 24/7 by how quickly he responds with answers. I would recommend Burke and EGT for your solar system.

I have been working with Bryan for a few years as we planned and built our forever house. He was exceptionally professional and patient throughout the process. His team was also exceptionally competent and professional. The installation crew took extra care to make the experience easy, and the craftsmanship was top-notch. There was a glitch in the plans on installation day and we had to move some mounts and panels. EGT went above and beyond, hiring a roofing company to come out and ensure everything was as good as new. Their entire crew is local so if there is an issue, they will just come out to the site and check things out. It was a really great experience, and now I am no longer paying Idaho Power! 10 out if 10 would definitely recommend!

After several false starts I managed to avoid potential disasters with out-of-state solar companies. Then I contacted the local company EGT Solar. Quinn my sales representative, along with Pasho and the entire install crew, made the whole process from start to finish efficient, transparent, and enjoyable from my perspective. Highly recommend if you want the solar job done right.

From the moment we met Steve and started talking about solar options we knew we had the best person and company to help us plan our transition to solar. Steve is knowledgeable and is able to break it down in understandable terms. He never put any pressure on us, just options including waiting if we felt the timing and/or cost were factors. EGT has the best warranty and stands behind their product and workmanship. All these factors helped us decide we wanted to work with them on moving to solar on our home. Now that our solar is up and running I wanted to share some observations about the crew who installed the solar panels and smart panel. These guys were super friendly, answered my questions and worked as a team. It was obvious they liked working with each other and that EGT would be a good company to work for if I was looking for work. I liked how they problem solved together. Jed, Nate, and Harley, just to name a few are hard workers and good mentors to newer crew members. It was a real pleasure being around them. Good people!

EGT Solar is the very best! Rob, Dan, Steve, Casey and Team delivered as promised from start to finish and now when an inverter failed they quickly installed a new one. No cost to me as the warranty was for both parts and labor. They schedule their appointments with you and show up on time. I have a beautifully installed ground mounted array that is delivering 60+ Kw hours a day for our use and the neighbors. This team worked with me from start to finish handling all the permitting and installation with no subcontractors…everything is in house and everyone works together! I retired with 34 years in the military and know what it takes to find the right mix of personnel to have a high performing team…EGT has done that. EGT Solar has my highest recommendation as they provide both a quality product and most importantly a quality experience!

From the first contact with Burke at showroom I acquired basic information in our interest in solar for our home. Having researched three other companies and receiving quotes no other company had any displays of products or options on complete solar panel systems. The quotes from other researched solar companies systems were like apples vs oranges and required additional phone calls to clarify information. We chose EGT on their complete estimate, selection top rated panels plus several referrals from other owners in Boise. The communication from start to installation by Burke was outstanding. The installers and electricians were wonderful to answer questions and informing of details during installation process. The inspections by City of Boise and Idaho Power were passed with gratitude of EGT’s attention to details on there solar projects.

Jed has been an integral part of the EGT team since 2017 and is a tremendous asset to our project management and installation crews. His knowledge of electrical code and experience with Solar and battery systems allows EGT to take on any challenge from complex residential projects to large-scale utility farms and sizable commercial and agricultural installations. Jed assumed the role of lead foreman in early 2020 and has played a significant role in the immense growth of EGT in the last few years. From project management to planning and preparation Jed takes part in each and every project, giving our installation crews and team of electricians the direction they need to execute work at the highest level of quality and care.

Jed is highly respected by his team and our staff as well as every client he comes in contact with. His willingness to pursue all client requests, however complicated they may be, is just one of the many reasons Jed has received so much praise from our clients and from the local jurisdictions/inspectors. Jed’s unmatched knowledge and on-the-job experience with Solar and complicated electrical work makes it easy to see why EGT has had so much success over the last several years and will continue to drive the Solar market in southern Idaho for decades to come.

Rob Black

Rob started in the solar industry with EGT in 2015 and quickly became a huge asset to the team, leading the charge for revenue growth and providing education to our community; Rob was tasked with learning all facets of this industry and implementing core procedures into the daily operations of EGT Solar, including but not limited to internal processes from permitting, finance, design, and battery integration as well as sales management and project intake. Rob was promoted to Vice President in 2019 and was responsible for all internal operations while maintaining a robust sales portfolio. Shortly thereafter Rob married his wife, Adrienne in 2020. Adrienne has provided a solid foundation of support and understanding, allowing Rob to make the sacrifices an INC. 5000 company demands of its executive management and key revenue producers.

Rob’s financial background prior to joining the solar industry has been a remarkable benefit to our clients as he continually strives to keep the cost to install solar as inexpensive and fruitful as possible. EGT Solar would not be where we are today without Rob’s tremendous dedication and work ethic and we are pleased to have Rob take on the CEO position and lead this company and this industry in Southern Idaho towards the tremendous growth we are sure to see in years to come.

Bryan founded EvenGreen Technology Inc. (DBA EGT Solar) in 2010 when alternative energy products had a very small market in southern Idaho; with a mere fifty-four (54) Solar installations in the state.  Bryan knew the latest changes in technology would allow for growth in demand. As his intuition became a reality and the market started quickly growing in 2013 Bryan made a commitment to his community and his staff that above all else, honesty and transparency in all facets is the mode of operation for this company. This foundational culture quickly lifted EGT to the top-rated solar company in Idaho and it is still in this position today.

Bryan, born and raised in southern Idaho, has a true commitment to the strength and longevity of the Idaho solar market. Bryan is proud to offer a truly local option for Idahoans and prioritizes giving back to local community charities each year. Because of how he chose to operate EGT Solar, Bryan was nominated Idaho CEO of the Year (2016) and again in 2018. He is truly committed to his employees and ensures that EGT is an unbeatable company to work for. EGT has 5-star ratings on all social media platforms and is BBB A+ accredited since 2015. EGT has been named a Top 500 Solar Contractor 2015-2022; one of the only single branch operations to carry this accolade and the only Idaho-based solar company. In the last two years, EGT Solar has been listed among the INC. 5000 fastest-growing companies nationwide and continues to grow to this day thanks to Bryan’s continued commitment to his employees and this community.
