Walgreens to Install Solar Power on 112 Stores

Walgreens announced on January 11th that it will install solar electric systems on 96 stores and two distribution centers in California, and on 16 stores in New Jersey. Both states offer significant rebates for solar power installations. ImaginIt Inc. will install solar roof tiles on each of the buildings, allowing each facility to generate between 20 and 50 percent of its power needs. Walgreens expects the first of the systems to be installed early this year. See the Walgreens press release and ImaginIt's brochure about its roof tile system (PDF 419 KB). Download Adobe Reader.
