Walmart extends solar commitment

December 2014

Walmart is to install up to 400 new solar projects at facilities across the US over the next four years. This advances the company’s global commitment to drive the production or procurement of seven billion kWh of renewable energy by the end of 2020 and its goal to be supplied by 100% renewable energy.

“We are pleased to announce this expansion on the heels of the Solar Energy Industries Association’s commercial solar report, which recognizes Walmart as having the most installed solar capacity in the US,” said Pam Kohn, executive vice president at Walmart and president of Walmart Realty.

Walmart has installed close to 260 solar projects to date in the US. Its commercial solar deployment is now 105 MW, more than double the capacity of the next largest business.
