Ikea starts generating solar power at Tampa store
by Staff, Tampa Bay Online | July 17, 2012
Ikea has flipped the switch on its 148,700-square-foot solar energy system in Tampa, making it the company's 22nd store to go solar.
The 4,956 panels will significantly reduce its carbon footprint, said Kathi Garden, a marketing consultant for Ikea.
"It literally is going to be as if it's 242 cars off the road emissions-wise," Garden said.
For the development, design and installation of the Tampa store’s customized solar power system, IKEA contracted with REC Solar Inc., a national leader in solar electric system design and installation with more than 9,000 systems built across the United States.
