“They look very modern and are in-line with the roof tiles… we definitely recommend to friends”
Evelyn and Jamie Tehrani have wanted to buy solar panels for a long time but were concerned about finding a system that wouldn’t detract from the aesthetic of their home. This year they were finally able to achieve their dream with a built-in system installed through IKEA, as well as battery storage to make the absolute most of their solar electricity.
The Tehrani household is one that is out most of the day – at school and work. Therefore they wouldn’t be able to utilise much of the electricity generated by solar panels during the day, which led them to choose battery storage. A domestic battery allows them to store the electricity they produce, then use it when the sun goes down. They had kept an eye on recent developments in domestic energy storage and the reduced cost of these batteries, so they felt it was the right time to try it for themselves.
Evelyn said she found the whole process very easy and clear. The installation team arrived promptly and managed to complete the installation in a single day. The battery and inverter were placed in their garage which is out of the way and looks very neat. The team were polite and helpful, particularly in briefing the family about how the system works once it had been fitted.
Evelyn and Jamie say they are very happy with the look of the integrated panels. ”They look very modern and are in-line with the roof tiles which was especially important for our roof which is very visible from the road,” said Evelyn. “We definitely recommend to friends that they consider using IKEA for their solar panels and storage offer – it’s the perfect combination.”
