Canton Township — Swedish retailer Ikea has expanded the size of a solar array atop its store.

The company said Wednesday the 40,000-square-foot solar panel addition at the household furnishings store includes 781 panels.

This solar expansion sits atop a store extension completed this past spring.

The company said the store now has more than 4,900 panels and the solar array will produce the equivalent of enough energy to power about 135 homes.
