Kohls Goes Renewable

Kohls is a pretty well known department store. They are known for competitive prices and a wide variety of clothing options. But they are working to become known for their effort to generate energy by using the vast open spaces on top of their California stores.

Sixty-thress of Kohl's eighty stores will feature solar paneling in 2008. This is a significant effort by Kohls. Once completed, their solar grid will represent 15% of California's solar energy set-ups. The stores will generate 25 Megawatts of energy. This is bigger than the top 5 largest completed voltaic systems in the United States combined.

All of this means that enough energy will be generated to power 3,087 homes per year and offset 28 million pounds of carbon dioxide in the first year alone. Let me just say that if you're not shopping at Kohls yet, its time to start. They should be rewarded for this astounding effort. Hopefully they will extend their work to other states & hopefully other stores will follow Kohls' lead.
