Supermarket to sell energy saving products

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

Consumers will soon be able to buy energy-saving products in a major British supermarket, potentially cutting their electricity bills.

Sainsbury's has announced a partnership with the energy firm EDF to open up three in-store Home Energy Centres. The stores will sell energy saving products such as solar panels, heat pumps and insulation.

Adam Zeiderman, Sainsbury’s commercial manager, said: "There are lots of people who want to invest in renewable energy products but they don’t know how or where to start. By setting up our Home Energy Centres, we believe we’re bringing green technology a step closer to everyone."

The three centres will be in the Camberley, Kidderminster and Leicester stores.

Figures from the Energy Saving Trust suggest that households could save £140 a year on heating costs by installing energy saving glazing and £235 by upgrading to a condensing boiler.

The Citizens Advice Bureau recommends that another way to get cheaper gas and electricity bills is by comparing and switching energy suppliers.
