(AP) Swedish flat-pack furniture giant IKEA says it will start selling residential solar panels at its stores in Britain in a move aimed at bringing renewable energy to the mainstream market.


The company said it will start selling solar panels made by Hanergy in its store in Southampton on Monday and in the rest of Britain in coming weeks.


It said a standard, 3.36 kilowatt system for a semi-detached home will cost 5,700 British pounds ($9,200) and will include an in-store consultation and design service as well as installation, maintenance and energy monitoring service.


IKEA Chief Sustainability Officer Steve Howard told The Associated Press that Britain is a test market and the company aims to continue launching the product in other countries after evaluating the British experience.
