I say WalMart, some say “People of Walmart”, referring to the unfortunate photos captured of people roaming the aisles at the largest grocery retailer in America. Or, you sniff and shrug and say, “I NEVER shop at WalMart.”
I shop at WalMart. But I don’t whisper about it. (I don’t shop there exclusively but I sure spend a lot of my dough there).
And today, there’s a bit of news that makes me feel even better about the place.
An article out today on the website Energy Manager Today, gives a clear picture of the retail giant’s commitment to renewable energy.
One interesting fact; that WalMart intends to plop solar panels atop at least 1,000 facilities by the year 2020. That, and a whole bunch of other energy reduction efforts that are underway are supposed to result in annual energy savings to the tune of $1 billion.
Pretty impressive — if it all happens.
