When I see this, I hear a page turning:
Walmart has been adding solar to scores of stores across the country . . . as it plans to become 100 percent renewably powered. . . The company has aggressively been building out solar on its stores and other buildings. It’s also been boosting its purchase of renewable energy both directly and indirectly. And it is doing so across the world.
“Walmart has 280 renewable energy projects in operation or under development, and continues to test solar, fuel cells, microwind, offsite wind projects, green power purchases and more,” the company said.

It was once a rallying cry. But we lost that one, along with the jobs.

Not that anyone beleived them anyway.
