Kohl's opens 59th solar store in California


MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. Kohl’s Department Stores announced that it will open 30 new stores throughout the state of California, including its 59th solar location in the state at Point West in Sacramento. The Sacramento store is Kohl’s 79th solar location nationwide. Including the new Sacramento solar location, nearly half of Kohl’s California stores will be solar.

“Energy efficiency and green power are key business and environmental strategies for Kohl’s, and we continue to work to make them an integral part of building and expansion efforts,” said Ken Bonning, Kohl’s EVP of store planning and logistics. “Our solar program is a hallmark of our green power efforts, and we’re continuing to expand it because it demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and improving the environment directly in the communities we serve.”


The Point West store’s 990-panel, 206 kilowatt solar array will generate approximately 50 percent of the store’s energy and is expected to offset almost 5.7 million pounds of CO2 during its lifespan, the equivalent of taking approximately 28 cars off the road each year for 20 years, according to the company.
