IKEA Canada Buys Wind Farm In Pincher Creek

 
 

PINCHER CREEK - IKEA Canada has purchased a 46 megawatt wind farm in Pincher Creek.

 

The 20-turbine wind farm will be the largest owned by a Canadian retailer and is expected to generate 161 gigawatt hours each year, which is more than double the total energy consumption of IKEA Canada.

 

President Kerri Molinaro says "this wind farm in Alberta, along with existing solar installations at three of our Ontario stores, is a significant step to achieving IKEA's global ambition to be energy independent by 2020, producing more renewable energy than we consume."

 

The project is currently being constructed by global wind and solar company Mainstream Renewable Power and is expected to be fully operational in the fall of 2014.
