LONDON: UK supermarket Sainsbury's is selling solar panels this week as part of a new partnership with British Gas.

 

The new stock is part of a wider scheme to provide easy access to a range of energy products, relevant information and guidance.

Trained energy advisors will work in selected Sainsbury's stores to provide customers with energy-saving advice, under the newly formed Sainsbury's Energy brand.

Justin King, chief executive, Sainsbury's said: "Sainsbury's has a long history of helping customers save money without compromising on quality. With the launch of the new Sainsbury's Energy, we plan to continue with this heritage."
