Sainsbury's promotion could prompt more PV training

Demand for PV training could be set to rise after Sainsbury's announced that it has partnered with British Gas to offer solar panels at its stores.

Customers will be able to pick up the electricity microgeneration devices from certain outlets of the supermarket giant and also speak to experts about energy efficiency.

If more consumers opt to install solar panels in their homes, local tradesmen may need to undertake PV training to ensure they have a good understanding of the technology.

Chief executive of Sainsbury's Justin King claimed that the aim is to reduce costs and carbon emissions for the company's customers.

"Our ambition is for Sainsbury's Energy to become the number one destination for customers looking for new energy technologies, energy efficiency measures and great energy deals," he added.

This week, regional newspaper the Echo revealed that properties proposed by South Essex Homes could use solar power to provide up to 60 per cent of their hot water needs.
