IKEA stores in the UK will soon be stocking thin-film solar systems and “a comprehensive homeowner service package that includes a full site survey, installation, fitting and a guarantee,” thanks to Hanergy Holding Group Limited.
Hanergy and IKEA UK will also be conducting three workshops at the IKEA Milton Keynes store on September 9 as a part of their partnership. And nearly 70,000 messages have already been distributed by IKEA to their British members in order to recommend Hanergy solar systems for homeowners.
“We believe in the growth potential of the British PV market. This is why Hanergy has decided to launch its small power generation systems in the UK. Our cooperation with IKEA was only a matter of time since we share the same principles of environmental protection and sustainable development,” said Jason Chow, CEO of Hanergy Global Investment & Sales Pte. Ltd.
According to current estimates, Hanergy rooftop units can save up to 40% on the electric bills of British households. And with enough units installed, homeowners are actually able to generate enough electricity to make some money off of it, by selling the excess back to the National Grid through the UK’s feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme.
