Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, will leverage its scale to bring affordable renewable power to consumers using its experience from the retail industry. Rahul Raj, director of sustainability and merchandising innovation at Walmart.com, said that the retail giant aspires to 100% renewable power. Roughly 22% of Walmart’s electricity needs globally are supplied by clean energy sources, Raj told the Cleantech Open Conference in Santa Clara. In California, approximately 75% of Walmart owned locations will have rooftop solar installed by the end of 2013.
