Wal-Mart Installs 3.3 MW Solar System
Wal-Mart has announced its largest solar installation to date: a 3.3 MW system atop the Buckeye distribution center (pictured) near Phoenix, Ariz., with more than 14,000 solar panels on a 1,000,000-square-foot building and parking canopies.
The company said the parking canopies will produce up to 30 percent of the centerâ€™s energy needs, and will generate up to 5.3 million kWh of energy per year.
Walmart has 65,000 kW of installed capacity, according to a report published this week by theÂ Solar Energy Industries Association and the Vote Solar Initiative, and is the no. 1 corporate solar user in terms of on-site capacity.
