IKEA Invests in 165 MW Wind Farm
The IKEA Group purchased its second wind farm in the United States from Apex Clean Energy: a 165 MW wind installation in Cameron County, Texas. This represents the single largest renewable energy investment made by the IKEA Group globally to date.
The Cameron wind farm will be owned by IKEA and is expected to be fully operational in late 2015. The project will use 55 Acciona Windpower 3 MW turbines.
Earlier this year IKEA Group announced its first US wind farm purchase located in Hoopeston, Ill. Together, the IKEA Hoopeston and Cameron wind farms are expected to generate nearly 1,000 GWh per year.
IKEA renewable energy investments in the US to date now include: 104 wind turbines located on wind farms in Hoopeston and Cameron; 165,000 solar panels installed on 90 percent of IKEA buildings across the US, providing an additional 38 MW installed capacity; and geothermal integrated into the heating and cooling systems of two stores, in Centennial, Colo., and Merriam, Kan.
