WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - International retailer IKEA says the West Chester IKEA store is one of six IKEA stores that are adding large solar power systems to their roofs this year. The company already has solar panels on a number of stores. The company's U.S. headquarters is also getting solar panels.
This is the third large solar panel array in the Tri-State recently. Within the past couple of weeks, Turkeyfoot Middle School in Edgewood recently switched on the largest solar array in the state of Kentucky, and the Cincinnati Zoo recently activated one of the largest arrays of its type above its parking lot on Vine Street.
The IKEA new installations are all in the eastern U.S.
