There’s a new trend in energy efficiency – and it’s top U.S. companies investing in solar. The annual Solar Means Business Report identifies major commercial solar projects and ranks America’s top corporate solar users.
The report found that Walmart is America’s commercial solar leader for the second year in a row with 89 megawatts (MW) installed at 215 locations. Other companies include Costco, Kohl’s, Apple, IKEA, Macy’s, and Johnson & Johnson. Combined, the top 25 companies have deployed 445 MW of solar capacity – a 48 percent increase over a year ago.
Commercial solar deployment totaled 3,380 MW at 32,800 facilities throughout the country the first half of this year – a significant 40 percent increase from last year. It’s a testament to the country’s growing adoption to renewable energy.
