IKEA's U.S. subsidiary is buying a long-planned wind farm near Hoopeston.
The plan is to offset IKEA’s power use with renewable energy generation.
Officials hope to have Hoopeston Wind up and running by 2015.
The company says the 98-megawatt wind farm should generate enough electricity to offset all of its U.S.properties power use.
IKEA becomes the third owner of the yet-to-be-built project.
