Kohl's Department Stores has announced that it will expand its solar program by nearly 25% this year and plans to install solar panels at approximately 30 additional Kohl's locations.
While some of the new solar sites will be in states such as California, Connecticut and Maryland – where Kohl's already has a solar presence – additional sites will be located in new solar states for Kohl's, including Massachusetts, New York and Ohio.
On average, the solar panels will supply 20% to 50% of each store's energy consumption. Construction on the first set of solar projects began this spring. Once the installations are complete by the end of the year, Kohl's expects to have more than 150 solar locations across 13 states.
