Target to add solar arrays to 180 store rooftops

Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal | March 18, 2015 | Column by Nick Halter

Crews this spring will begin installing solar arrays on the rooftops of 180 Target stores nationwide.

Nancy Kuehn | MSPBJ Target is having solar arrays installed on 180 stores nationwide.

Target Corp. hired Greenskies Renewable Energy of Middletown, Conn., to install and operate the systems, which are expected to produce a total of 100 megawatts of electricity.

Greenskies says the arrays will produce 20 to 30 percent of the energy needed to power a typical Target store. Two arrays will be installed on New York distribution centers.

Target already has solar arrays on 108 stores and wants to reach 500 by 2020, according to an earlier news release. The Minneapolis-based retailer has 1,800 stores in the U.S.
