Target Rolls Out Its First Net-Zero Energy Store

Rooftop solar panels are old news, but solar panels in the parking lot have one of the most ubiquitous big-box retailers thinking net-zero.

Target Corp. has retrofitted a store in Vista, California, to be a net-zero energy facility. The site will generate more renewable energy than it needs to operate and will test various other changes to its physical plant to reduce the building’s emissions, which the company says can be applied to other Target locations in the future.

The site will generate energy through 3,420 solar panels installed on its roof and on newly installed carport canopies in the parking lot. Target predicts that the panels will generate as much as a 10% energy surplus that can be transmitted to the local grid.

The building will also power its heating system via the solar panels instead of natural gas, and the store will use carbon dioxide refrigeration rather than standard systems. Target is planning to use carbon dioxide refrigeration chainwide by 2040, which the company says will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20%.
