This solution will enable all customers in Portugal to turn their roofs into power plants, helping to save up to 50% on their electricity bills by installing solar panels. The system will include everything from simulation and cost estimation, as well as a technical visit, which can be physical or virtual, for purchase and installation, with no additional cost for guarantees and subscriptions.
"We are pleased to announce that our range of solar panels is ready to be launched in Portugal this spring. This new solution has been designed as a service that combines our vision of home life and our ambition to have a positive impact on the planet, with the technical expertise and solutions of specialised energy partners. Together with our partner Contigo Energía, and hopefully together with many residents in Portugal, we have an incredible opportunity to accelerate the necessary transition to renewable energy in Portugal. In addition to our own operations, we want to inspire and help millions of people to contribute to the fight against climate change, starting from their own rooftops," says Ana Barbosa, Sustainability Officer at Ikea Portugal.
