Walmart has worked with SolarCity to install solar panels on 12 Walmart stores and Sam's Clubs throughout Ohio.
The solar panel installations will add about 6,000 MWh of generation production — enough energy to power more than 820 homes — and are expected to supply about 5-20 percent of each store's overall electricity use.
"Solar power makes sense for Walmart, and it makes sense for Ohio," said David Ozment, Walmart Senior Director of Energy. "We are committed to increasing the use of renewable energy resources, including solar panels, at our stores in Ohio and throughout the country."
The Walmart stores and Sam's Clubs receiving solar power systems are located in Mason, Xenia, Greenville, Austintown, Middletown, Franklin, Youngstown, Toledo, Milford, Loveland and two systems in Cincinnati.
