Wal-Mart Selects SolarCity Corporation and SunEdison, Inc. to Install Up to 400 New Solar Projects at Facilities Across the Nation

Walmart announced that the company will install up to 400 new solar projects at facilities across the nation over the next four years. This advances the company's global commitment to drive the production or procurement of seven billion kWh of renewable energy by the end of 2020 and its goal to be supplied by 100% renewable energy. To facilitate these installations, Walmart selected proposals from two preferred solar energy providers, SolarCity and SunEdison, following an RFP process. Working with numerous solar providers, Walmart has installed approximately 260 solar projects to date in the United States. Walmart's commercial solar deployment is now 105 MW, more than double the capacity of the next large business. This has saved more than $5 million in energy expenses, demonstrating that Walmart can keep costs low for customers while reducing environmental impact. The installations will vary in size, commensurate with the respective store or facility. It is expected that smaller systems will provide 10% to 20% of the facility's electricity requirements and larger systems will provide 20% to 30% of the power needed by the facility.

SolarCity Unveils Zs Beam

SolarCity unveiled ZS Beam, a new product that allows solar panels to be attached to parking lot shading structures faster, more safely and at a lower cost than was previously possible. The newest product in SolarCity's Zep Solar line should make it possible for more businesses, schools and government organizations to build carport structures that create shaded parking and also provide solar electricity at a lower rate than electricity from their utility companies. SolarCity expects ZS Beam to significantly reduce the construction cost associated with solar carports, and SolarCity is introducing the product at a time when U.S. solar carport construction is expected to grow dramatically. A recent report from GTM Research forecasts U.S. solar carports to grow from a projected 180.2 megawatts of annual installed capacity in 2014 to a projected 317.9 megawatts in 2016; a 76% increase in two years. The carport system can pair effectively with SolarCity's ZS Peak; SolarCity's lightweight, "snap together" mounting system for commercial flat roofs that can significantly increase the number of panels that can be installed on each roof.
