As the world’s largest retailer and biggest private employer, Walmart commands attention from Wall Street to Main Street. But it’s not what’s happening inside Walmart stores making news this week — it’s what’s happening on top of them.
The annual Solar Means Business Report, which identifies major commercial solar projects and ranks America’s top corporate solar users, was released this week by SEIA and Vote Solar. The report found that Walmart is America’s commercial solar leader for the second year in a row with 89 megawatts (MW) installed at 215 locations.
Other companies on the Top 25 list include Costco, Kohl’s, Apple, IKEA, Macy’s, Johnson & Johnson, McGraw Hill, Staples, Campbell’s Soup, U.S. Foods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Kaiser Permanente, Volkswagen, Walgreens, Target, Safeway, FedEx, Intel, L’OREAL, General Motors, Toys “R” Us, White Rose Foods, Toyota, and Dow Jones & Company.
