Ikea, the Swedish furniture and home furnishings retailer, plans to purchase a 98-megawatt wind farm about 110 miles south of Chicago, MarketWatch reported. The wind farm is expected to be fully operational by the first half of 2015. Ikea plans to delegate management to wind and solar developer Apex Clean Energy. The wind farm is not intended to supply energy to any of Ikea's 38 stores in North America, according to the company, but should provide energy to 34,000 American households annually.
