It was a Wednesday night when my doorbell rang. It was immediately clear that the gentleman standing outside my front door was selling something. He introduced himself as a representative of American Solar Energy and he was in the neighborhood setting up appointments for estimates on solar systems. Living in Florida and of course having an interest in solar as editor of Green Lodging News, I was all ears. I agreed to setting up an appointment the next day. The salesman then put me on the phone with someone from his office who confirmed my contact details. Maybe at this point I should have been a bit suspicious. The salesman had already taken my contact information. Why would someone have to validate what he just did? Did his own company not trust what he was doing?
