Retailers buy wind power

Wal-Mart has announced its first substantial purchase of wind energy in the US. The wind power will supply up to 15% of the retailer's total energy load in approximately 360 Texas stores and other facilities. The renewable energy will come from a Duke Energy wind farm under construction in Notrees, TX, and is expected to begin producing electricity for Wal-Mart by April of 2009. "We're purchasing renewable power at traditional energy rates," said Kim Saylors-Laster, VP of Energy for Wal-Mart. "The wind power purchase will result in a significant decrease of greenhouse gas emissions and aligns perfectly with Wal-Mart's long-term goal of being supplied by 100% renewable energy."
