Store Goes Solar Cuts Electric Costs by $50 Million

Kohl's Department Stores says 100 of their locations across the country now have solar panels.The panels at their 100th location were activated earlier this month at its Mays Landing, N.J. location.

The Menomonee Falls-based company started installing the panels in 2007 and currently has them at some stores and distribution centers in Wisconsin, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Oregon and Colorado.

In a news release, the company estimates their energy management programs have helped prevent nearly $50 million in electricity costs.

The company says it is also expanding its solar program into Pennsylvania.
