Report: Target tapping alternative energy for North Carolina store


Minneapolis – Target Corp. is reportedly bringing a sunny approach to energy at its store in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

According to the Fayetteville Observer, Target will install solar panels that can generate 432 KwH of electricity per year on the store’s roof. There is no firm launch date yet for the store’s solar panels, which will likely generate 15%-30% of its total electricity needs.

The Fayetteville store is one of about 30 Target stores in North Carolina and 150 stores in other states currently slated for solar panels. Target will become the first major retailer to use solar power for stores in North Carolina.

By the end of 2015, Target plans to have 238 stores and distribution centers in 15 states equipped with solar panels. Target also plans to have solar panels on the roofs of 500 stores and distribution centers by 2020.
