Wal-Mart Becomes Canada’s Largest Commercial Purchaser of Renewable Energy

Mississauga, Ontario [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Wal-Mart Canada has announced a three-year agreement to purchase 31,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean, renewable power from Bullfrog Power to green the electricity of three of its Alberta stores. In combination with ongoing alternative-energy contracts in Ontario and British Columbia, the Alberta purchase makes Wal-Mart Canada the nation’s largest commercial purchaser of green power. In 2007, the company will operate the equivalent of 15 stores emissions free, through the purchase of green power from solar, wind and low-impact hydro sources. This will contribute to Wal-Mart Canada’s plan to reduce its carbon emissions footprint by a minimum of 19,000 tons this year.
