This company is fraud. Do not hire them.
Do NOT hire this company. We did not believe all the bad reviews about them and went ahead to hire them. They turned out to be the worst nightmare one can ever have. We are building an expensive mansion and talked to several solar companies. This company, citadel, promised us that they would do a professional job and that all the bad reviews about them were untrue reviews. However, we learned from The hard way that all the bad reviews about them are true. They did not contact us to go over their design and never told us that there would be a huge converter to be put in front of our house entrance. The converter is very ugly and severely affects the house appeal. Many companies don’t even have a converter for the reason that they don’t want this to affect the house appeal. Not only did citadel not inform us this and they refused to correct their mistakes. We have talked to them numerous times without avail. One of their so called manager said that it would be no problem and they would fix the problem easily but then got into an angry mode when we asked him to honour his promise. We offered that we can fix their problem for them but they said that they would take away their warranty if we do that. They also never came out to do the work. We had to beg them again and again for them to do their work. The schedular name Holly is extremely rude. She never responds to emails and when she emails us, she would scold and threaten us. The entire experiences has been horrible. We have to retain attorneys to help us to make them do the work. We have dealt with many contractors and have never had such an awful experience. Their work is also of low quality. Each time they sent different contractors because they don’t have their own. They have to hire others to do the work for them so we ended up having to deal with new people all the time and they never seem to know what work the other contractors have done. Do Not hire these people. They are fraud. We have suffered and we do not want you to suffer. We will be reporting them to the contractors board. This company of a scheme. They should not be defrauding the public anymore.

Professional People, Professional Install
Citadel staff from front office, to engineering, to field install really first rate. No surprises, helpful, good communication, and available to answer all questions. We are very happy with our install.
Eric | Clovis, California | 07/08/2022
We bought a new house in Clovis that came with solar and was installed by Citadel. We decided to install a bigger solar system and Tesla battery storage. Since Citadel already installed our first system and was familiar with our roof/home, we thought we would have Citadel install the 2nd system/battery. From the sales through the rebate process, we had a great experience with them. They are very communicative and responsive to any questions/concerns. We had a few items post installation that needed follow up and I very impressed that they sent technicians usually the following day to fix the issue. Citadel also took care of the PG&E battery cash rebate process – from filing the paperwork to following up with PG&E, we were very thankful to have Citadel guide us through the process. We love our solar systems and Tesla battery storage - thank you Citadel!

Unethical Business Practices
This company in my opinion cannot be trusted. They had myself and several of my friends looking forward to having Tesla power wall's installed under the SGIG program. After months of waiting, their sales rep R. Romitti stated the batteries were back ordered and later stated PG&E changed how much I would be reimbursed. Mr. Romitti was also happy to just let me pay the full price. Who knows, maybe all of what Mr. Romitti stated was true, but when he asked me to lie about having sleep apnea to qualify for the Powerwalls, that's when he cross the line. Three of my friends stated he asked them to do the same. Had I done as he asked I'd be guilty of fraud and conspiracy. I'm therefore warning others of these unethical practices and I'm notifying the appropriate State agencies. Also Citadel roofing and solar pulled a permit to have work performed on my property but when I elected not to have them proceed after they changed the deal, they refused to contact the county and have the permit rescinded.

Very happy with Solar installation
I am very happy with my Solar installation by Citadel Roofing! The work was completed in a timely manner, was done correctly, and works great. The project coordinator kept me up to date on all paperwork and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Citadel Roofing and Solar!

Awesome job from start to finish!!
These guys are total professionals. I am extremely happy with how the entire process went from start to finish. Eric Andresen was my Sales Rep and he did an amazing job setting it all up. Ticia Sauceda was my Project Coordinator throughout the entire project. She was excellent, and checked in with me every week to let me know how things were going. I got Solar and a Tesla Battery installed as well. The two guys who came to do the installation were excellent, they did a fantastic job, and were very professional. It all looks and works amazing! The entire project was certified by the Napa City Inspector and PG&E without any problems. The work is excellent. I now have two Apps on my phone so I can monitor my Solar System, my Battery, and my Usage levels at all times. Very cool, and very useful to me and my family. This company stands behind their work, and they do an excellent job. I could not be happier with how this project went or the outcome. I would highly recommend Citadel Roofing and Solar to anyone who is interested in doing Solar. You will be very happy you did.

Not a pleasant experience so far - operational problem
I selected Citadel to install solar panels in Aug due to a very attentive Sales person. Unfortunately it has been a super stressful experience afterwards (probably the last thing you want during this pandemic). As some other people mentioned, they didn't talk to each other themselves. I was communicated several times with multiple wrong dates. After calling them hundreds of times, I finally got the confirmation from three different people/groups that my panel installation date is today. Well, guess what happened, nobody showed up !!!!!! As what I learned so far, if you are located in bay area, bite your own nails and prepare to wait for a long long time until anything actually happens. They probably just want to save their multiple trips regardless how the customer is screwed up Unfortunately I still have the contract with them and can only wish the next date they will provide is actually a real date. Pray for me~~~
Great job despite covid and the | Vacaville, California | 11/05/2020
I thought Citadel did a great job from the initial sales contact to Final installation. This includes the help financing, scheduling, and the use of various apps likeTesla and Enphase.

Citadel Roofing and Solar provides exceptional customer service.
We purchased a newly constructed home in Woodland, CA. The home was deeded in 2019, so purchasing solar panels at closing was not mandatory. Citadel was installing the roofs and solar panels in the new community, so we asked them to install our solar panels. The whole process was exceptional, they do what they say they will do and provide incredible customer service. Even after the solar panels were installed, they make sure the permits are filed, you are linked to PG&E, you can logon to the apps, and you have all your paperwork. Then they provide follow up monitoring and communications. They are really incredible. The price is consistent with the price I would have paid if I was required to buy solar panels at closing of escrow.

Solar at Citadel
I had a very good experience with Citadel during my purchase and installation of solar. They did an awesome job, great customer service and keeping me well informed of the process. I would definitely use them again if needed. The monthly savings I am experiencing is great. Very happy I chose Citadel. Evan at Citadel explained everything perfectly and put my package together, then Armando did a very good job with the installation, 100% satisfied
