    Hi Christine, If you can get a breakdown between solar panel sales vs. installation value, you could: 1. Apply the solar panel sales value to sector 215-Heating equipment (except warm air furnaces) manufacturing. Unless you know that the manufacturing takes place locally, set LPP = SAM Model Value. Apply margins, then edit the margins so the the LPP for the retail sector is 1.00. This way, the purchases will be made locally, even if the equipment is not manufactured locally. 2. Apply the installation value to sector 40 (Maintenance and repair construction of residential structures).

    Thanks. Should I set the "activity type" to industry or commodity change?
