Ikea, the Swedish home furnishings retailer with U.S. headquarters in Conshohocken, on Tuesday announced plans to install 45,360 solar panels on ten locations in the southern United States.

The panels will have a generating capacity of 10.7 megawatts. The retailer already has 23 solar systems installed or under way.

The ten new locations will increase the company's solar presence to 75 percent of its U.S. locations.    - Andrew Maykuth
