On May 9th, 2013, home furnishings retailer IKEA announced that it has officially plugged-in a solar photovoltaic (PV) system at its store in Stoughton, Massachusetts.
The 118,000-square-foot PV array, a 590.8 kilowatt (kW) system, consists of 4,220 laminated panels.
The Stoughton's plant will produce about 695,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of solar power annually. IKEA contracted with REC Solar Inc. for the development, design and installation of the Stoughton store's customized solar power system.
"We at IKEA believe in the never-ending job of improving the sustainability of our day-to-day business. The Stoughton coworkers are excited to help contribute to this goal with our newly operational solar energy system. We appreciate the support of the Town of Stoughton, National Grid and REC Solar, our partners in this project," Store Manager Frank Briel stated.
Consistent with the company's goal of being energy independent by 2020, IKEA has installed more than 250,000 solar panels on buildings across the world and owns/operates about 110 wind turbines in Europe.
