New York Brooklyn IKEA Installs Solar Panels But Can’t Turn Them On

Geschreven op 22-8-2010 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

IKEANew York City’s first IKEA furniture store came with an unusual accessory: a field of rooftop solar panels. IKEA has another store with solar panels in Pittsburgh and is building an array in Tempe, Arizona.

The panels have been ready since early summer, but the company can’t turn them on, due to a slow approval process.

    America’s First Geothermal-Powered IKEA Coming to Denver

    More and more retail chains are embracing renewable energy in a bid to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Examples include Wal-Mart installing close to 5300 solar panels at its Apple Valley distribution center in California and Green Depot making their stores LEED-certified. Now IKEA has joined the renewable retail ranks by announcing that a store near Centennial in Denver will be powered by geothermal energy. Thanks to a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the Denver IKEA store will be the first IKEA store in the United States to be built with geothermal heating and cooling, saving both energy and money.

    IKEA To Install Solar Panels on Eight California Locations

    IKEA announced plans to install solar energy panels on eight of its California locations. Pending governmental permits, installation can begin in late Fall, with completion expected in early 2011. Collectively, the eight buildings comprise nearly 90% of the IKEA presence in California, and will total 4.5 megawatts (MW) of solar generating capacity, nearly 20,000 panels, and an annual output of 6.65 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity. This effort represents the equivalent to reducing 5,268 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) in California – equaling the emissions of 914 cars or providing 580 homes electricity yearly.

    IKEA will be installing panels at its three stores in Northern California (East Palo Alto, Emeryville and West Sacramento), four stores in southern California (Burbank, Costa Mesa, Covina and San Diego) and at its distribution center in Tejon – one of the top ten largest rooftop commercial systems in the U.S.

    IKEA Installs 14,000 square meter + 4,300 square meter solar panels in Germany

    In competition with more than 200 other solar system providers, REC Systems Germany GmbH was selected to provide systems solution for two installations in Germany. The 14,000 square meter (0.83 acres) installation, producing 449,000 kilowatt-hrs/year (kWh/year) on the rooftop of a store in Regensburg, Germany, was connected to the grid at the end of September. The 430kW installation will offset 398 tons of CO2 per year.

    A second rooftop installation covering 4,300 square meters (0.32 acres) producing 149,000 kWh/year was installed on a store in Freiburg, Germany and connected to the grid in December. The 150 kilowatt installation will offset 132 tons of CO2 per year. “We will use the solar power produced for our lighting department, and furniture exhibition, as well as for the customer restaurant”, says Michael Armin, Head, Expansion, IKEA Germany. Building on the success of earlier joint projects, Goldbeck Solar, a large construction company focusing on industrial rooftop and ground mounted PV installations, partnered with REC as sub-contractor on the German IKEA projects.
