January 2012 - IKEA officially turned on a photovoltaic (PV) installation located at its Cincinnati-area store in Westchester, Ohio. IKEA partnered with REC Solar to develop and install the 128,000 square-foot, 1,026 kilowatt system, which consists of 4,186 PV panels that will generate over 1.3 million kilowatt-hours of renewable solar electricity for its Westchester store.
The Westchester installation is IKEA's 14th completed solar energy project in the U.S. With 23 additional solar projects underway, it is anticipated that IKEA's U.S. solar generation capacity will eventually exceed 30 megawatts. IKEA owns and operates each of its solar energy systems.
