A new study confirms what social scientists have long known: once one person in a neighborhood gets solar, others in the same area are more likely to get solar.
FROM THE STUDY AUTHORS:
“It’s almost like if you see a solar panel from out of your window, you decide to put one on your roof as well,” says study author Leonie Wenz from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany. “ Of course, one might think other factors are more relevant, such as income, educational background, or word-of-mouth within the same social network, such as a school district. So we compared all these different options and were amazed by the outcome. It turns out that, no, geographical distance is the most important factor. The more panels there are within a short radius around my house, the more likely I’m of having one, too.”
THERE YOU HAVE IT!
