Walmart Installs Solar Panels on Colorado Stores
April 12, 2012
Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-mart Stores Inc. will expand its solar commitment in Colorado, with six SolarCity projects planned for the state. The projects will include the company’s 100th solar power installation in the United States and will help it to achieve its long-term goal of using 100 percent renewable energy for all of its facilities. The installations, totaling two megawatts on three stores in Westminster and one each in Lakewood, Highlands Ranch and Lafayette, also will help Colorado meet its renewable energy goals. Walmart's SolarCity projects in Colorado are expected to generate approximately 3 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy per year.
