Walmart Demonstrates Global Leadership in Sustainability with Substantial Solar Power Footprint in Arizona Retailer Announces FY12 Environmental Impact Data, Showing Significant Benefit to Growing Number of Renewable Energy Sites Within the State As part of our mission to build a sustainable future, Walmart announces a year of expansion and development of solar power projects in Arizona. Since March 2011, Walmart has more than doubled solar power installations at stores, clubs, and distribution centers, with a total of 21 installations across the state. “Walmart’s investment in solar technology has grown significantly, with solar installations in Arizona more than doubling in the past year,” said Marty Gilbert, director, Walmart energy. “Due to the success of projects in states like Arizona, we’ve continued to Arizona Walmart facilities with solar panel projects: Avondale – 13055 West Rancho expand our renewable energy efforts throughout the U.S., having just reached an exciting milestone of 100 solar power installations Santa Fe Boulevard, Buckeye – 1060 South Watson Road, Buckeye (Distribution Center) on Walmart stores, clubs and distribution centers. There’s still more work to be done to ultimately power all of our locations with renewable energy, which will bring great environmental benefit to each state and financial savings where the installations are found.” Walmart’s SolarCity crystalline and thin film solar panel installations have generated more than 20.5 million kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy in the past year, which is the equivalent of powering more than 1,700 homes. Additionally, the installations have prevented more than 27 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from being released into the air, which are harmful to public health and the environment. This is equivalent to taking more than 2,750 vehicles off of the roads in Arizona. Arizona was one of the first states to receive solar generating systems at its Walmart stores, helping to lead the company in reaching its goal of using renewable energy at all of its locations throughout the country. While solar power is a natural sustainability application for states in the nation’s Sunbelt such as Arizona, it is only one of numerous global sustainability achievements highlighted in Walmart’s Global Responsibility Report released Monday, April 16. The report reviews Walmart’s progress and performance during fiscal year 2012, as well as areas of opportunity for the future.
