Last Tuesday, IKEA announced the completion of the solar panels on top of the new Las Vegas store, according to the Review Journal.
"Once commissioned, the project will be the largest single-use retail rooftop solar array in Nevada, store officials said in a statement. The store’s 240,504-square-foot solar comprises a 1.14 MW system, built with 3,620 panels, and will produce approximately 1.75 million kWh of electricity annually for the store."
IKEA will be opening on May 18, a month ahead of the projected opening date. Many Las Vegas residents are looking forward to having the large home furnishing store here in Las Vegas. IKEA will also be providing several hundred jobs for valley residents.
