IKEA’s Atlanta, Georgia store has recently seen the completion of its 1.03MW (1, 0.34.9kW) rooftop PV system, built with 4,312 panels. The 129,400 square foot PV project was developed, designed and installed by Gehrlicher Solar America and is anticipated to produce nearly 1,416,502kWh of electricity per year.
IKEA owns and operates each of the PV systems on its buildings with its Atlanta store representing its 23rd complete solar project in the US. The Swedish company notes that it has an additional 16 solar projects in development, which will bring its eventual US solar presence to nearly 89% with a total generation of 38MW.
“Our mission is to create a better everyday life for the many people, and at IKEA Atlanta, we just added to this effort,” said Jim Anastos, IKEA Atlanta store manager. “A solar energy system will help reduce the store’s carbon footprint and represents another investment toward our future in this community. We appreciate the continued support of the City of Atlanta, Georgia Power, and Gehrlicher Solar, our partners in this project.”
