By the end of this summer, you will be able to buy IKEA branded solar panels in their online and UK stores.

Recent research showed that 33% of UK homeowners are interested in investing in residential solar panels with the intent of cutting their electricity bills. IKEA’s announcement came shortly after this research was released.


IKEA stores in Glasgow, Birmingham, and Lakeside, opened their “Solar Shops” last month. They say they plan to launch these shops in every store across the UK by the end of summer 2016

“Evidence shows that installing solar panels enables households to save up to 50% on their electricity bills,” said Joanna Yarrow, Head of Sustainability at IKEA UK and Ireland. “We want to turn solar into an essential part of any home and believe our new “Solar Shops” will be a major milestone in making this happen.”


“Despite the recent changes to the Government-backed Feed-in Tariff, a home solar system remains one of the best investments a homeowner can make today with a 6% annual return, allowing people to pay off the capital invested in the system in roughly 11 years, meanwhile generating free, clean energy.”

Susannah Wood, Head of Residential Solar at Solarcentury says, “Together with IKEA we have designed an offer which makes solar simple for homeowners. We’ve blended IKEA’s retail expertise with our solar expertise to arrive at an offer which combines quality with great value for this now-mature, tried and tested technology.”
