The solar installation company that receives Installer of the Year is selected based on criteria including quality of work, customer satisfaction, and the number of REC panels installed. REC evaluates quality of work and customer satisfaction based on consumer reviews posted on websites including Google, SolarReviews and EnergySage. Citadel Roofing & Solar was chosen from more than 200 California solar installers.

“The REC brand is all about quality. Our awards program recognizes the handful of installers whose high-quality work best reflects our brand. We congratulate Citadel Roofing & Solar for being the epitome of everything a solar installation company should be,” said Melissa Watson, national marketing manager for REC Americas.
