Just like Amazon, Walmart is expanding its solar network. The retailer announced a deal with SunPower last week that will bring solar energy to 19 stores and two distribution centers in Illinois, inching Walmart closer towards its 2025 environmental targets.

Construction on the new solar systems is set to commence in the first half of 2019. SunPower will install a combination of rooftop and ground-mounted solar panels at the Illinois locations, adding up to a collective 23 megawatts of power.
