Blue Oak Energy installed and designed the solar systems using Sharp solar modules. REI says its  solar systems in Sacramento and Folsom will be producing energy by the end of the year.

In May, the retailer said it plans to retrofit more than 10 percent of its stores with solar power in 2008. REI set a 2009 goal to reduce its emissions by one-third from its 2006 baseline in order to help reach its 2020 goal of becoming climate neutral.
