Home furnishings expert IKEA has teamed up with solar firm Solarcentury to launch Solar Battery Storage to help homeowners make huge savings on their electricity bills.
Designed to work alongside existing solar panels or as part of a brand new combined home Solar Panel and Battery Storage system, the new offering will make it much easier for homeowners to save on their electricity bills by enabling them to use more of the electricity that is generated by their solar panels.
Solar Battery Storage allows users who have solar panels installed on their homes to store the electricity generated by the sun and use it whenever they like.
Hege Saebjornsen, country sustainability manager, IKEA UK & Ireland said: “With energy bills already going up 15% this year, there’s never been a better time for customers to take back control of their electricity bills and maximise their savings by switching to solar and solar storage.”
Susannah Wood, head of residential solar at Solarcentury commented: “We believe IKEA and Solarcentury are bringing the most competitive package to the market yet so more people than ever before can profit financially and environmentally by producing their own energy.”
The IKEA Solar Battery Storage starts £3000 (5% VAT included), whilst prices for homeowners who already have solar and want to add a battery start from just under £5000 (20% VAT included). This includes a 15% discount available to IKEA Family members.
Solar Battery Storage is available to purchase online via the IKEA UK website. Customers can get a free estimate by visiting Ikea's website and completing a Solarcentury calculator to see how much they can save.
Ikea says installation can take as little as three weeks from receiving an estimate to installation.
