Thanks Theresa. For those interested, it is AEA registry trial AEARCTR-0010691 and notes: In this exploratory study, we intend to design and administer a survey across a sample of about 400 owners of small-medium manufacturing enterprises in the garment and food storage sectors in central Punjab to better understand the main structural, informational and behavioural barriers that prevent business owners from switching to greener energy sources such as solar power. In particular, we will elicit respondents’ personal preferences, beliefs and attitudes around solar energy sources, as well as their intended behaviour or expected likelihood of adopting solar energy. In addition, we aim to conduct a randomized information experiment, embedded within the same survey, to test whether specific information provision is effective at changing respondents’ beliefs, attitudes and intentions in relation to purchasing solar energy.
