Walmart inks solar contracts with SolarCity, SunEdison0
Walmart has announced new contracts with SolarCity and SunEdison to install PV panels at up to 400 of its stores and distribution centers nationwide in the next four years.
The retail giant says the deal will help it meet its goal of sourcing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. SolarCity and SunEdison were selected for the contracts following an RFP process.
Installation size will vary by location, but Walmart says smaller systems will likely provide 10% to 20% of a facility’s electrical needs, while larger systems will contribute 20% to 30%.
