Social interactions and the adoption of solar PV: evidence from cultural borders

Social interactions and the adoption of solar PV: evidence from cultural borders

a working paper by Stefano Carattini, Martin Péclat, Andrea Baranzini 5 November, 2018

This paper investigates the role of ‘social spillovers’ in the adoption of new technologies. The authors find that the French-German language border in Switzerland acts as a barrier to social interactions and, eventually, to the adoption of new technologies – in this case solar PV. read more »
