IKEA to Sell Residential Solar Panel Systems

It's starting in Britain but IKEA has plans to bring renewable, solar energy to the public worldwide.

The company started selling solar panels made by China's Hanergy in its store in Southampton on Monday. It will sell them in the rest of Britain in coming months, it said.

A standard, all-black 3.36 kilowatt system for a semi-detached home will cost 5700 British pounds ($9874) and will include an in-store consultation and design service as well as installation, maintenance and energy monitoring service.


The solar panel investment will be paid off in about seven years for an average home owner in Britain, Howard said.

"If you are going to be in your house that long, your energy will be free after seven years," he said.

Some retailers in the US, including the Home Depot and Lowe's, already sell solar panels. But in other parts of the world, consumers often have to research a myriad specialist firms before making a purchase.

Nice Info! You will be able to save on your house power bills, and you may even be able to drastically detract them. Also, you can actually earn cash because in most of areas the government will buy any overplus energy create by you.
