Case Study


How we help IKEA make their RE100 commitments reality.

“At IKEA, we have a mission to create a better everyday life for the many, so we are excited about furthering our sustainability commitment and contributing to a low-carbon society with solar panels on nearly 90% of our U.S. locations.” – Lars Peterson, IKEA U.S. President

The Scenario

IKEA is a Swedish home furnishings company with a deep respect for nature. In an effort to minimize their impact on the environment, IKEA made a commitment in 2010 to use solar energy to reduce carbon emissions from their facilities.


The Solution

In support of IKEA’s commitment to solar, REC Solar has designed, engineered, and built solar electric systems at 20 IKEA facilities in 13 states across the country. These projects included both retrofits of existing IKEA stores (and a distribution center), as well as solar projects added to newly constructed buildings.


In addition to project design and construction, REC Solar provides complete operations and maintenance for all IKEA systems we install. Our monitoring and service teams observe production across all systems, identify issues and troubleshoot to find ways to improve system performance.
