This report covers findings from two separate surveys fielded by EnergySage to gauge how the residential solar industry is responding to the coronavirus pandemic. The first survey provides insights into how residential consumer interest in solar is changing as a result of the virus, while the second survey looks at how EnergySage’s solar installer network is reacting to the impact of COVID-19 on their business.
For the consumer survey, EnergySage worked with Qualtrics to reach 509 respondents nationwide. The survey focused on homeowners over 18 who said they were actively looking to install solar prior to the COVID situation and ran from March 30 through April 14. Responses to the survey came from 41 states, with the majority of the responses coming from six major solar states: California, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Texas.
