IKEA commissions roof top solar energy system at Atlanta store

Greentech Lead America: IKEA, a home furnishings
retailer, has plugged-in the solar energy system installed at its store in
Atlanta, Georgia. The 1,034.9-kW system consists of 4,312 solar panels. The
system is expected to produce approximately 1,416,502 kWh of clean electricity
annually, the equivalent of reducing 977 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Gehrlicher Solar, a subsidiary of Gehrlicher AG, an
independent PV project developer and system integrator, has designed and
installed the system at IKEA store.

This investment by IKEA reinforces the company’s
long-term commitment to sustainability and confidence in photovoltaic (PV)

This Atlanta installation represents the 23rd completed
solar energy project for IKEAin
the United States, with 16 more locations underway, making the eventual U.S. solar
presence of IKEA nearly 89 percent with a total generation of 38 MW.

“Our mission is to create a better everyday life for
the many people, and at IKEA Atlanta, we just added to this effort. A solar
energy system will help reduce the store’s carbon footprint and represents
another investment toward our future in this community. We appreciate the
continued support of the City of Atlanta, Georgia Power, and Gehrlicher Solar,
our partners in this project,” said Jim Anastos, IKEA Atlanta store manager.

commercial solar developer in the Midwest and developer of more than 65 U.S.
commercial PV installations.
