Home furnishings retailer IKEA says it has officially plugged in a solar energy system installed at its Dallas-area store in Frisco, Texas.
When combined with projects completed in Houston and under way in Round Rock, these installations make IKEA the state's largest private solar owner, according to the company.
The Frisco store's 114,000 square-foot PV array consists of a 912 kW system, built with 3,780 panels. For the development, design and installation of the Frisco store's customized solar power system, IKEA contracted with REC Solar Inc.
This installation represents IKEA's 30th completed solar project in the U.S., and the company has nine more installations under way.
