IKEA is a name that many people all over the United States know for its iconic blue buildings, meatballs, and furniture that can be complicated to build. IKEA has announced that it will set up a branch office in Sweden and will begin providing wind and solar generated electricity via STRÖMMA. IKEA Sweden has added STRÖMMA to its existing clean energy service.
Clean energy service Offering A subscription electricity service that allows subscribers to power their homes with electricity generated by wind and solar means. Expanded products are part of IKEA’s goal of leveraging customers, colleagues and partners around the world to build the largest renewable energy movement.
IKEA has set a goal of enabling more than a billion people to lead more sustainable lives by 2030. By 2030, IKEA wants to be climate friendly and rely solely on renewable energy and resources. Electricity generated from fossil fuels is said to affect the health of individuals and the planet.
Furniture companies believe that an easy action anyone can do is switch to renewable energy at home. IKEA offers STRÖMMA in Sweden, but also solar panels in 11 markets. The goal of solar panel products is to enable customers in all Ingka Group markets to use energy services to generate renewable energy by 2025.
In Sweden, STRÖMMA allows customers to purchase affordable certified electricity generated by solar and wind power. The service also features an app that allows subscribers to track their power usage. In the market where IKEA sells solar panels, the same app can track power generation and allow users to sell unused energy back to utilities. IKEA Sweden states that providing affordable solar and wind power while being a furniture company is a “natural next step” in sustainability goals.
