We’ve been quite interested in solar projects recently, what with John P’s guide to solar installation at his house, and now it seems like the green energy option may be poised to go mainstream – IKEA style.
Most of us have at least one bookshelf from IKEA, while many have furnished their entire homes from the giant furniture retailer. Now customers in the UK have a chance to power those homes with solar panels from the same place as their coffee table and kitchen organizers.
Buyers need not worry about puzzling out cryptic wordless instructions as the company assures professional installers will be provided to make sure the job is done correctly.
Packages will begin at £5,700 ($9,200), making it one of the pricier things you might buy at IKEA. The company will be starting slowly, with sales beginning today and rolling out to 17 UK stores in the next few months. There’s no mention of it yet on IKEA’s UK website, so for now this is an in-store purchase.
