IKEA Bolingbrook & Schaumburg | 1.99 MW

Sustainable Design

IKEA installed large rooftop solar arrays at their Schaumburg and Bolingbrook retail stores in 2012. This investment reinforces their long-term commitment of IKEA to sustainability and confidence in photovoltaic (PV) technology. IKEA owns and operates each of its solar PV energy systems as opposed to a solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA). Together, the projects produce about 2,334,081 kWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent of 1,915 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
