Available on the website since October 2021, the offer will now also be aavailable at Leroy Merlintorn up.

True to its mission, Voltalia offers renewable energy production solutions at all scales, particularly in the field of photovoltaic solar energy: ground-mounted power plants; parking lot shading; industrial, commercial and agricultural roofs; and individual roofs.

Since October 5, 20211, Leroy Merlin offers its customers a turnkey service for the supply and installation of solar panels at home, combining its know-how as a leader in home improvement with that of Voltalia, the international solar expert. . The offer is available on the Service Leroy Merlin website page:

Building on its success, the offer is evolving and will also be available from September 2022 in Leroy Merlin stores in 40 departments across mainland France. The map of the stores where the offer will be available will be put online very soon.

Customers will thus be able to go to the store to be accompanied by their Leroy Merlin advisors in choosing the most suitable solution from among the various services offered. They will then be contacted by the local teams to carry out the validation of the technical data, the planning of the installation of the system and its commissioning.

This solar roofing service aims to reduce the electricity bill of individuals by up to 60%. In order to accelerate the implementation of local and competitive electricity production, the French State is actively participating in the process with three measures: a contract for the sale of unused production with a fixed price for 20 years, a self-consumption bonus and reduced VAT for installations up to 3kWp.

The solar roof offer is a continuation of a collaboration initiated with Leroy Merlin in 2020, which offers in its stores small solar kits, developed by Voltalia, to be installed yourself.

The turnkey solution Free by Leroy Merlin gives everyone the opportunity to take concrete action to minimize the effects of the current energy crisis while acquiring sustainable, competitive, green and local electricity production equipment.
