Kohl's Increasingly Relying on Solar Power Generated at Its Stores

Kohl's Department Stores is to install solar panels at roughly 30 additional locations, expanding its existing solar program by nearly 25 percent.

While some of the new solar sites will be in states such as California, Connecticut and Maryland where Kohl's already has a solar presence, additional sites will be located in new solar states for Kohl's, including Massachusetts, New York and Ohio.

On average, the solar panels will supply 20 to 50 percent of each store's energy. Construction of the solar panel arrays on the first phase of stores began this spring and should be completed by the end of 2012. At that time, Kohl's expects to have more than 150 solar locations across 13 states, providing more than 74.2 million kWh of energy annually Kohl's launched its solar program in 2007 with the installation of panels at its Laguna Niguel, Calif., store.
