Wal-Mart Canada has revealed that they’re working towards getting 100 percent of their electricity from renewable energy.
To meet that goal, two large Canadian stores have been outfitted with rooftop solar panels and wind turbines, with other major projects on the way. The retail store intends to generate enough renewable energy to sell some back to the grid.
Hopefully, these plans extend to the U.S. as well. Many stores here have been outfitted with solar panels, and a New Jersey store will soon replace all its light poles with wind turbines, but the company has indicated that they’ll only work towards being completely powered by renewable energy if that renewable energy matches or beats grid parity. So, as long as it’s cheap.
