IKEA planning solar energy project

IKEA has announced that a solar energy system is planned for its store in Tempe. Pending remaining governmental permits, installation of solar panels on the roof of the store may begin in May, with completion expected in the fall. The 46,000-square-foot configuration will consist of two 300-kWh systems, each built with approximately 1,300 panels (for a total 2,600). IKEA Tempe’s solar program will produce approximately one million kWh of electricity annually for the store, offsetting 712 tons of carbon and equivalent to powering 86 homes.

This effort represents the third solar energy project for IKEA in the United States. A system is operational in Pittsburgh, Pa., and installation now is under way in Brooklyn, New York.
