IKEA Installing Large Solar Array at Kansas Store


MERRIAM, Kan. (AP) — IKEA plans to install a large solar array at its store in suburban Kansas City, making what the furniture retailer calls the largest rooftop solar spread in Kansas. The company said in a release Wednesday that installation of the 92,000-square-foot solar array will likely begin in June. The store's opening is scheduled for this fall. IKEA says the 2,850 panels at the Merriam store will produce more than 1 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually for the store, which is being built on about 20 acres in Merriam. The company says it has installed more than 550,000 solar panels on buildings worldwide and has solar energy at most of its U.S. locations.
