Hot on the heels of last week’s announcement of several new solar installations at its stores, IKEA has further stamped its mark on the solar industry by announcing the completed installation of a 912 kW PV system at its store in Frisco, Texas, US. This marks the company’s 30th completed solar energy project in the US.
The PV system covers an area of 114,000 square feet and utilizes 3,780 solar panels, producing around 1,336,300 kWh of power every year. It was developed, designed and installed by REC Solar.
Just last week, the company announced that it had completed the installation of its 26th solar energy project at its Draper, Utah, store, as well as at its Bolingbrook and Schaumburg, Illinois, Chicago, stores.
Continuing its commitment to the PV sector, the company currently has 9 more PV systems in the country under development. When complete, these locations, plus the company’s 30 finished solar energy projects, will generate a total capacity of 38MW. IKEA owns and operates each of its solar PV systems atop its buildings.
Demonstrating the company’s commitment to solar energy, to date, IKEA has installed over 250,000 solar panels on its stores and buildings worldwide.
