IKEA to Install Tennessee’s Largest Solar Rooftop System on Future Memphis Store
MEMPHIS, TENN. — IKEA plans to install Tennessee’s largest solar rooftop system atop its Memphis store set to open in the fall. The 271,000-square-foot IKEA Memphis will be situated on 35 acres in the Wolfchase Corridor along the southwestern side of I-40 near the Germantown Parkway exit. The store will feature approximately 800 parking spaces. Atlanta-based Hannah Solar is installing the 250,675-square-foot solar array beginning this summer. Linkous Construction is managing the site work and building the store, which will represent the 44th solar project for IKEA. The Swedish-based retailer plans for its stores to be energy independent by 2020.
