Swedish retailer IKEA has connected the 21st solar system at its store in Woodbridge, Virginia, the company has announced. Gehrlicher Solar developed and installed the 504kW PV system, equipped with 2,100 PV panels, on 63,000ft² of IKEA’s rooftop. IKEA has 18 more systems to install at US stores to reach its goal of installing a total of 38MW of systems.
“We at IKEA believe in the never-ending job of striving to improve the sustainability of our day-to-day business,” Jackie DeChamps, IKEA Woodbridge store manager, commented. “The IKEA coworkers in Woodbridge are excited to help contribute to this goal with our newly operational solar energy system. We appreciate the support of the Town of Woodbridge, Prince William County, NOVEC and Gehrlicher Solar, our partners in this project.”
