Tesla’s rooftop solar panels and its rechargeable Powerwall battery technology will soon be available at The Home Depot.

Palo, Alto, Calif.-based Tesla plans to set up kiosks in over 800 Home Depot stores in the U.S. that will demonstrate Tesla’s solar and storage technology to curious consumers.

The home improvement chain also plans to provide free in-home consultations for potential purchasers, dispatching members of its Home Energy Services team to the abodes of the sustainably-minded. The consultations are intended to give the would-be sun-harnessers information on what type of rooftop system would be appropriate for their home and budget. 

Homeowners will be able schedule an installation date with Tesla following the consultation.

Tesla acquired San Mateo, Calif.- based residential solar company SolarCity in an over-$2 billion deal in November 2016.
