The Swedish furniture giant has added PV systems to the products it sells in the UK. Within the next ten months customers will be able to buy PV systems at each of the UK’s 17 IKEA stores.

Members of the IKEA Family Club in the UK can buy a PV system with 3.36 kW of power for the equivalent of about 6,800 euros (5,700 pound), including tax. They can also arrange for a solar financing package to take the system home with no upfront payment. Hanergy UK is showcasing the system prominently in stores and is offering a full service package, including consultation and design service as well as installation, maintenance and monitoring of the PV system.
