If you’ve ever wondered what goes on inside the minds of your solar customers, this town hall is for you.
Our multidisciplinary expert lineup will tackle questions like: Can we quantify the factors that lead to solar adoption? What is the interplay between emotions and rationalization in consumer purchasing decisions? Why you might prioritize hiring “empathetic” sales staff. And, of course, what can behavioral economics teach us about solar sales?
