Solar installations are currently complete or underway at four Kohl’s stores, with six additional locations in the planning phase. Together, the solar panels are expected to collectively generate approximately 1.6 million kWh annually, which is the equivalent of powering 153 homes for a year.

Kohl’s launched its solar program in California in 2007 at its Laguna Niguel store. The company currently has 86 solar locations nationwide in California, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Oregon and Wisconsin with the near-term goal of reaching 100 locations in the upcoming months.

The company also installs central energy management systems at all stores that operate most of the interior and exterior lighting, and heating and cooling systems.
