Ikea looks to install solar panels at Stoughton store
Home furnishings retailer Ikea said it plans to install solar energy panels on its store in Stoughton.
"Pending governmental permits, rooftop installation will begin in the new year, with completion expected in spring 2011," said Ikea, whose US operations are based in Pennsylvania.
There currently are more than 300 Ikea stores in 38 countries, including 37 in the United States. Ikea said it also plans to install solar panels at its store in Paramus, N.J. When the Stoughton and Paramus installations are completed, Ikea said that the total number of US Ikea locations with solar energy systems will be 13.
