In partnership with Voltalia, Leroy Merlin is launching a
Voltalia (Euronext Paris ISIN code: FR0011995588), an international player in renewable energy, announces that it has signed an agreement with Leroy Merlin to launch a turnkey service for the installation of photovoltaic solar panels on the roof for individuals in mainland France. Available on the leroymerlin.fr website, this offer democratizes access to solar energy and allows the greatest number of people to benefit from a simple, trustworthy and competitive services.
From October 5, Leroy Merlin customers can benefit from a solar panel installation service that combines two areas of expertise: that of Leroy Merlin, a specialist in home furnishings and France’s leading DIY network, and that of Voltalia, an expert in renewable energy, especially solar energy, both in France and internationally.
The offer is marketed on the Maintenance page of the website leroymerlin.fr, one of the most consulted sites for this type of service: https://www.leroymerlin.fr/services/bricolage-pour-vos-travaux-a-domicile/offres-gouvernementales/ installation-de -panneaux-solaires.html
For an installation of eight panels, or three kilowatt peak (kWp), the most common power, the offer starts from 8290 euros TTC, with a premium for self-consumption of 1140 euros deducted.
The offer integrates customer support in several steps. The simulation tool outlines the need, the size of the power to be installed and the self-consumption (part of the total consumption covered by the production of the roof, as opposed to the remaining consumption that comes from the electricity grid and is billed by the energy supplier). In a second step, a video sales meeting makes it possible to specify and supplement the data of the simulation tool. Finally, a field visit allows us to validate the technical data collected from the customer.
The components (inverters and solar panels) have a 12-year warranty and the mounting system 20 years. At the end of their life, more than 95% of them will be recycled by PV Cycle, a non-profit eco-organization recognized for the collection and recycling of used photovoltaic solar panels.
With this service, the electricity produced will reduce the electricity bill of individuals by up to 60%. In addition, private individuals benefit from three measures from the French government: a contract for the sale of non-consumed production with a fixed price for 20 years, a premium for own consumption and a reduced VAT rate for installations up to 3 kWp.
This offer is the continuation of a collaboration started in 2020 with Leroy Merlin, which offers solar kits in its stores for self-installation. The kits were developed and assembled by Voltalia and have been sold in Leroy Merlin stores for over a year.
Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia, said: “We are pleased to offer our partner Leroy Merlin solar solutions that enable everyone to participate in the ecological transition”.
