The move is smart for several reasons. First, when Tesla boughtSolarCity, it was going door-to-door to move its products. This was expensive. Additionally, Tesla has advertised its products in Tesla showrooms, but that targets a specific customer with relatively few locations.
Initial reports say that the kiosks will be limited to selling solar panels and Powerwalls, with theSolar Roofcoming as production ramps up. Its all part of Elon Musks plan to make adding solar to a home an easy and seamless process.
