Kohl's Expands Solar Program
June 25, 2012,
Kohl's first solar location in Laguna Niguel, Calif.
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.-Kohl's said it plans to expand its solar program by nearly 25 percent in 2012, installing solar panels at approximately 30 additional Kohl's locations.
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. Once the installations are complete by the end of 2012, Kohl's expects to have more than 150 solar locations across 13 states.
