IKEA is offering £35 in free clean electricity to UK households that switch to green energy

IKEA: going green

IKEA UK is partnering with green energy experts Big Clean Switch to offer £35 of free green energy to every British home if they switch to clean energy as the retailer continues its sustainability push.

With more time spent at home over the last year than ever before, energy bills have soared – which is why IKEA is helping its customers to switch to a low-cost tariff from a number of different green suppliers.

Homes that switch to a participating tariff through the IKEA UK website will receive £35 credit on top of their other savings.

Greg Lucas, Sustainability Manager at IKEA UK, explains: “Millions of homes across the UK are already benefiting from IKEA products and services that help to reduce waste, energy and water, as well as to save money, which is why we’re so pleased to be able to partner with Big Clean Switch and help our customers switch to green energy suppliers too. With everything we do we hope to enable and inspire people to take small, affordable and simple steps towards living more sustainably.”

Jon Fletcher, CEO of Big Clean Switch, adds: “Too many UK households are put off switching supplier because they think it will be too much trouble or they don’t trust the energy market and as a result, they’re often paying hundreds of pounds more than they should be. We’re working with IKEA to provide a different kind of switching service that provides their customers with the support and reassurance they need to make the switch to greener, more affordable energy.”

The news follows a succession of initiatives and announcements from IKEA which aims to help make sustainable living more accessible and affordable for all. In April, Ingka Group announced an investment of €4bn  – in addition to the €2.5bn invested to date – to support its transition towards using 100% renewable energy across its entire value chain by 2030. 

Currently, all IKEA stores have LED lighting, whilst 13 stores have solar panels installed and six stores across the UK and Ireland currently don’t rely on fossil fuels at all, and are 100% powered by renewable energy sources.
