SEIA Applauds Walmart for Expanding Clean Energy Initiatives

WASHINGTON, dc - Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement today after an announcement by Walmart that it is dramatically increasing its use of renewable energy:


"We applaud Walmart's decision to ramp up construction of new clean energy projects nationwide, including an expanded use of solar. The company's decision to increase its clean energy projects by six-fold puts Walmart on a clear path to become 100 percent supplied by renewable energy by 2020. This lead-by-example' approach will not only benefit the company's 2 million associates and 150 million shoppers, but it will also significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, help the U.S. economy and stimulate American innovation. It's a win-win for everyone, and Walmart should be commended for its leadership."
