IKEA wants to be a leader in the domestic solar energy production and storage market. To the solar panels you are already selling, you now need to attach batteries for energy storage. It is currently only available to its customers in the UK.
“At IKEA we are always looking for ways to help customers take positive action at home for the environment and the economy,», Comments Hege Saebjornsen, Head of Sustainability, IKEA UK & Ireland. “We know our customers want to live more sustainably, and with Solarcentury, we’ll help them get the most out of their solar panels and save money.“
Electricity bills in the UK have risen 15% so far this year, so now is the best time to launch a solar storage system.
IKEA will offer the battery for storage and the home solar pack starting at £ 6,925 (US $ 9,157), with battery prices starting at £ 5,000 (US $ 6,612). They want to compete directly with what is presumed to be the industry leader Tesla and its powerwalls. Although they will not have it easy, since Tesla’s solar roofs are a solution that has no competition in the market at the moment.
This IKEA home solar system is designed to completely revolutionize the home renewable energy market, owners of solar homes will now be able to maximize the amount of electricity produced by their solar panels as they will be able to store and use their own energy when they need it. need it. In principle, they offer the most competitive package on the UK market.
IKEA will soon put its Solar Plus storage pack on sale online, in stores, it will be available later this year. The packaging includes a 3.3 kWh LG Chem battery. This battery is intended to store the electricity produced by the solar panels in the house.
We certainly cannot buy it in Spain.
