IKEA US further revealed that its solar solutions, made possible with SunPower Corp., are coming out sometime in the Fall of 2022. It is initially debuting in the retail stores of the Swedish-founder behemoth in California.

Teslarati said in its report that the latest plan of IKEA to sell solar panels straight from its various retail stores in the US brings clean energy solutions closer to consumers.

It is worth noting that IKEA has been a go-to location for US homeowners to get their house needs in a one-stop shop. This time around, the retailer is introducing new solar solutions to its growing lineup of home products.

IKEA Solar vs. Tesla Energy

Meanwhile, a recent story from Business Insider, stated that the arrival of Home Solar with IKEA in the US market brings a new direct competitor to Tesla Energy.

Like IKEA’s upcoming clean energy offering, Tesla Energy also brings solar solutions to American consumers.
