Ikea to roll-out UK PV sales

Furniture giant Ikea is to market domestic PV systems via all its UK outlets following a successful trial.

Ikea also offers a full package of installation and maintenance with the equipment, which uses equipment from China’s Hanergy.

The Sweden-based flat-pack furniture group will offer basic  systems from £5,700 ($9,200).

The decision to roll out the service across the UK follows a trial in London, first reported by Recharge a year ago.

The link-up follows a deal with Hanergy to install rooftop installations at Ikea stores as part of the retailer’s ambitious renewable energy targets.
