A partnership has been struck between British Gas and Sainsbury’s to help promote electricity and gas packages.
The full details of the deal are not yet known, but Sainsbury’s will be working with British Gas to offer its customers an array of products and services, including insulation, solar panels, boiler repairs and home energy assessments.
British Gas already provides a number of maintenance and repairs services for its customers as part of the British Gas HomeCare product. Something which may have attracted Sainsbury’s to work with them.
The retail giant will be ending its current deal with EDF Energy in February in exchange for the new agreement with British Gas, which will commence next month.
A statement published on the Sainsbury’s Energy website reads: “With effect from February 8, 2011 the partnership between Sainsbury’s Energy and EDF Energy will come to an end, after which all existing Sainsbury’s Energy customers will continue to be customers of EDF Energy.”
Specific details will be made public on February 9, as part of an official announcement by Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King.
