Ikea expands solar panels
May 25, 2011,
Conshohocken, Pa. - Continuing its greener push, Ikea plans to install solar PV systems on six additional locations in the Eastern U.S.
Panels will be installed at Ikea's Baltimore and College Park, Md.-based stores as well as atop the Cincinnati-area store in West Chester, Ohio. The two Philadelphia-area Ikea stores - one here and the other in Philadelphia - also will receive solar panels as will the Ikea North America service office here.
Other solar energy systems currently being installed include six locations in California and two on the East coast. In addition, both a solar energy system and a geothermal system have been incorporated into the Denver-area store opening this year in Centennial, Co.
