Tesla said on Friday that it would be ending SolarCity’s door-to-door solar panel sales.
Instead, the photovoltaic installer will rely primarily on online sales and retail sales for residential panels.
In a statement to GreenTechMedia, a Tesla spokesperson said that the decision “reflects what most of our prospective customers prefer and will result in a better experience for them.” Tesla added that it expects to exceed any lost door-to-door sales via its other sales channels.
Of the salespeople once employed to knock on residential doors, Tesla’s spokesperson also said that the “vast majority of affected employees will be reassigned or provided an opportunity to interview for other positions that will help support our expanded retail efforts.”
