<div class="quote-block"><b>Retail giant Wal-Mart Stores is thinking big about solar power.</b><br><br><br><br>
The company put out an RFP (request for proposal) last month to solar electric suppliers and expects to receive responses early this month, according to a representative. The move is part of a long-term plan to convert to renewable energy sources.<br><br><br><br>
Wal-Mart is keeping the details of the proposal under wraps as the process is still ongoing.<br><br><br><br>
However, one person who saw the proposal said that if completed, it could amount to a significantly large installation--on the order of 100 megawatts of power over the next five years.<br><br><br><br>
"To put that into perspective, the solar system currently being installed at Google headquarters in California--the largest single corporate solar installation in history--is 1.6 MW, about 1/60th the size," wrote Joel Makower, a clean-technology consultant who saw the proposal but is not bidding on it.</div>

My bf just told me about this. Pretty Cool! I still don't know if I will shop at Wal-Mart though. I just never liked the place ...maybe if they changed the name or something.
