Whole Foods Market awarded EPA Green Power Leadership award

BY Staff Writer

Austin, Texas — Whole Foods Market said Tuesday it has received a 2012 Green Power Leadership Award for sustained excellence from the Environmental Protection Agency for its renewable energy purchase of 800 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) last year.

The annual award recognizes leading green power purchasers for their commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market.

In addition to its renewable energy purchases, Whole Foods Market is generating nearly 258,000 kWh annually with the use of on-site solar arrays, which is enough green power to meet 107% of the grocer’s electricity use. Whole Foods Market adds this most recent award to its three previous Green Power Partner of the Year and two Green Power Purchasing awards from the EPA.

The grocer also received the Superior Achievement Award from the EPA’s GreenChill Partnership for reaching its refrigerant emission reduction goal for last year. GreenChill works with grocers to decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change by reducing refrigerant emissions. Whole Foods Market has won a GreenChill award the past four years as well.

Kohl’s receives EPA Sustained Excellence in Green Power Award

BY Marianne Wilson

Menomonee Falls, Wis. — Kohl’s Department Stores has been recognized with a 2012 Sustained Excellence in Green Power Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This is the company’s sixth consecutive year receiving a Green Power Leadership Award.

Kohl’s purchased 1.5 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power in 2012 and generates more than 28 million kWh through its solar program, offsetting more than 100% of the company’s electricity use for the third consecutive year.

The award was presented Monday at an event held in conjunction with the 2012 Renewable Energy Markets Conference in Washington, D.C. EPA’s annual Green Power Leadership Awards recognize the country’s leading green power purchasers for their commitment and contribution to helping advance the development of the nation’s voluntary green power market.

Kohl’s purchased 1.5 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power in 2012 and generates more than 28 million kWh through its solar program, offsetting more than 100% of the company’s electricity use for the third consecutive year.

“Kohl’s takes its commitment to green power and sustainable operations seriously and has set several goals to ensure we continue to strategically advance our programs,” said John Worthington, Kohl’s chief administrative officer. “From offsetting 100% of our energy use to having 200 solar locations by 2015 to educating our partners about how to establish successful programs of their own, Kohl’s is proud to do our part to support green power use.

Ikea goes live with largest solar installation to date

BY Staff Writer

Round Rock, Texas — Ikea has officially plugged in its largest U.S. rooftop solar installation to date, at its store in Round Rock, Texas. When combined with Ikea projects atop stores in Houston and Dallas-area Frisco, the new installation also makes Ikea the largest solar owner in Texas.

The 273,700-sq.-ft. PV array in Round Rock consists of a 1,633-kW system, built with 6,664 panels. It will produce approximately 2,398,500 kWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent of reducing 1,822 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), eliminating the emissions of 324 cars or powering 206 homes yearly. Ikea contracted with REC Solar for the development, design and installation of the system.

The installation represents the 33rd completed solar project for Ikea in the U.S. The chain currently has six more solar deployments locations underway, which will make the eventual U.S. solar presence of Ikea nearly 89% of its U.S. locations with a total generation of 38 MW. Ikea owns and operates each of its solar PV energy systems atop its buildings.

More than 250,000 solar panels have been installed on Ikea stores and buildings across the world. The company also owns and/or operates approximately 110 wind turbines in Europe.
