In the UK, IKEA has bought a 12MW wind farm and is planning to install 39,000 solar panels on its stores and is planning to run on 100% renewable energy. In the US, the Swedish furniture chain has recently expanded its solar installations across California and the East Coast and has now announced, according to Market Watch, that it will now be installing solar on all IKEA stores in the Southern US. The commitment means a full 75% of US IKEA stores will now feature solar installations, and it is also notable because the company plans to own the installations outright, rather than lease them.
