July 2012 - Walmart has installed its 100th solar system in California on its College Avenue store in San Diego. The combined output of Walmart's California solar systems are expected to generate 70 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy and provide 10%-30% of each facility's annual electricity needs. For the College Avenue installation, Walmart worked with SolarCity, which has installed, managed and maintained 70 of the 100 California solar systems for Walmart.
Walmart has now installed more than 150 solar systems on its stores in the US, and has a goal of 1,000 solar systems on its US retail outlets by 2020.
