Ikea Is Officially Selling Solar Panels And Batteries In The UK

By

Ikea looks to be in the solar power generation industry for the long haul. On Tuesday, Ikea announced that it is partnering with Solarcentury, a solar company, to sell solar batteries with the ultimate goal of making power storage more affordable and accessible for everyday citizens.

Notably, this isn't the retail giant's first endeavor into bringing green energy to the masses. For example, back in 2013, Ikea started selling solar panels in the UK. That came to a halt after the local government announced in December it was going to cut solar subsidies by 65 percent. Naturally, that made solar panel sales plummet across the region. However, Ikea's partnership with Solarcentury has the makings of a big step in the right direction.
