Big Retailers Converting to Solar Panels

What do IKEA, Walgreens, Costco, Wal-Mart, Macy’s, and Staples all have in common?

Answer: they’re all leveraging solar solutions to improve energy use, reduce overhead, and gain a competitive advantage.

Solar PowerWhether you are the owner of an up-and-coming retail outfit or a homeowner who wants to use solar power roofing or solar tiles to get your energy bill down, consider this amazing development: the most successful retailers on the planet now use solar energy.

Let’s take a closer look at what’s going at Wal-Mart, specifically.

According to a recent report, over 100 Wal-Marts have gone solar, and the company is financing 300 separate solar projects. On some level, it’s not surprising that Wal-Mart would go solar, since the company’s mission is to offer the lowest possible prices for consumers. In 2005, the Bentonville, Arkansas retailer set a goal of becoming 100% reliant on solar energy. Today, there are over 8,000 Wal-Marts on Earth. So it may take some time for that goal to come to fruition. However, the solar revolution has already helped Wal-Mart save more than a million dollars since 2008. You can bet that the market is noticing. And you can be sure the company will soon scale up their solar efforts to gain more of a competitive advantage.
