Walmart turning to thin-film solar for new installations


Walmart (Bentonville, AR) announced that it plans to expand its renewable energy development initiatives through the adoption of thin-film solar technology at a number of its solar power development sites. The company is in the process of adding solar generating systems at 20 to 30 facilities in California and Arizona, and many of these sites will feature thin-film technology, the company said. “By leveraging our global scale to become a more efficient company, we are able to lower our expenses and help develop markets for new technologies,” said Kim Saylors Laster, Walmart’s vice president of energy. “Developing and incorporating new renewable energy sources, like thin film, reduces energy price risk and aligns very well with our commitment to solving business challenges through technology.” Walmart currently has solar installations at 31 facilities in California and Hawaii.
