Minnesota-based Geronimo Energy is installing solar panels for Slumberland Furniture for eight stores, one distribution warehouse and one corporate office in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Each of the 10 40 kW solar installations is expected to reduce electricity usage by an average of 20% at each location.
The first installation began in September. Completion of the first round of installations is expected in early November, with more installations planned for 2014.
‘Taking steps toward improving the future of our planet is really just another way we try to improve the lives of our customers,’ says Slumberland President Kenny Larson. ‘As a company, we are committed to environmentally friendly practices.’
