If your Neighbor has Solar Panels, you’re more likely to go Solar
You know that phrase, “One good thing leads to another?” Well, it couldn’t ring more true than in the solar industry. Someone is considerably more likely to install solar panels on their home if others in their neighborhood have already installed them, according to research from Yale and NYU. The researchers found that residents are much more likely to install solar panels if they are already installed in their zip code, and particularly if they are installed on their street. The study also clearly shows what led to the increase: visibility and word-of-mouth.
We have found this to be true here at Energy By Choice. As a matter of fact, we have two solar owners on the same street. Two different customers just called with friends’ names. It seems that their positive experience with us was worth passing on.
However you come to solar, we’re happy you did. The more you know the better armed you are to make the right choice for you. Ask your friends, neighbors or Energy By Choice to tell their solar story. Chances are, you’ll want to consider a system for yourself. When something’s that good, you want to pass it on.
