US Solar will build 36 MW PV plants for Walmart in Minnesota

US trading company Walmart Inc. has reached an agreement with United States Solar Corporation (US Solar) to subscribe to 36 of US Solar’s community solar gardens located throughout the state of Minnesota. US Solar’s 36 one-megawatt (MW) community solar gardens will generate renewable energy to provide Walmart locations in 13 separate counties. The first solar gardens have completed construction and the remainder are targeted to be online by the first half of 2020.
Community solar in Minnesota allows businesses, public entities, and residents to subscribe to an offsite solar garden without having to site solar directly on their property. Subscribers receive energy savings in the form of a bill credit on their retail electric bill based on the amount of energy produced each month by their subscribed portion of the solar gardens.
US Solar is a developer, owner, operator, and financier of solar generation projects with a focus on emerging markets and community solar programs, with primary offices in Minnesota and Connecticut.
