Walmart is installing solar power generating systems in several locations in California and Arizona. The majority of these sites will utilize thin film panels as seen on this Mountain View, Calif. store.
One of Walmart’s broad sustainability goals is to be powered by 100% renewable energy, including the use of solar panels on the Covina, Calif. Walmart.
Walmart’s white roofs help reduce energy use and have a lower heat island effect than a darker roofing color. The skylights are part of the company’s daylight harvesting system, which can save an average of 800,000 kwh of energy annually.
