Ikea expands solar panels

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.

Ikea already has solar energy systems in: Brooklyn, N.Y.; Burbank, Calif.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Tejon, Calif. (distribution center) and Tempe, Ariz.; solar water heating systems in Charlotte, N.C.; Draper, Utah; Orlando, Fla.; and Tampa, Fla.

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.
