IKEA Completes 600 kW Photovoltaic Installation In Arizona

Home furnishings retailer IKEA has inaugurated a solar energy system installed at its store in Tempe, Ariz. IKEA contracted with Gloria Solar for the development, design and installation of the system.

The 75,000 square-foot array consists of two 300 kW systems, each built with approximately 1,300 panels. IKEA Tempe's solar program will produce approximately 1 million kWh annually.

This effort represents the third active solar energy project for IKEA in the U.S. Systems are operational in Brooklyn, N.Y., and Pittsburgh, Pa., and plans are under way for installing programs at eight IKEA locations in California.
