In the spring of this year, solar installations in the US surpassed two million, just three short years after the solar industry completed its millionth installation, a milestone that took 40 years to reach.
Policies spurred by ambitious state renewable energy commitments have helped speed up the adoption of renewables in general, but the growth of solar is also driven by enormous consumer demand.
At KSV, we have seen this firsthand.
According to the USDA, the number of farmers markets in the country has nearly doubled in the past 10 years. And the number of U.S. households growing food at home or in a community garden has increased 200 percent from 2008 levels, according to the National Gardening Association.
Consumers’ purchasing decisions are being driven by their key values.
Independence. Resilience. Self-reliance. Local. Sustainable. These values are shifting consumer behavior and increasing demand for specific types of goods.
Why should utilities or solar providers care? Because we see these very same values come into play when we talk to consumers about solar.

We’ve talked previously about how customer expectations and demands are rapidly changing—customers expect a modern and easy-to-use experience when they interact with energy providers’ digital products and services. We know that keeping up with evolving customer expectations and technology trends can be difficult and overwhelming. Oftentimes, it’s hard to know where to start.
This year, millennials will overtake baby boomers as the largest living adult generation in the United States, growing to 73 million people. We’ve discussed what this means for new technologies and customer experience in the energy space, but what does it mean for homeownership? Furthermore, what does it mean for energy companies?
