Wal-Mart Stalls Solar-Power Plan

[ZDNet] Wal-Mart Stores’ choice of providers for a solar-power investment has been put off past its anticipated date, according to people familiar with the process. The retail giant at the end of last year put out a request for proposals to suppliers soliciting bids on what could be a large-scale installation of solar electric power at company stores. … The company has two experimental stores–in McKinney, Texas, and Aurora, Colo. — that use renewable-power sources, including solar and wind. In January, it opened four high-efficiency stores designed to serve as prototypes for the clean-energy initiative, according to the company.
