"We couldn’t pay a premium for solar energy."

Surely Wal-Mart doesn't expect to pay the same for clean solar energy as they do for electricity? Not to mention that this will buffer them against any price spikes in electricity due to increasing petroleum prices.

Having said that, this is where government grants can help to bridge the price gap and encourage more companies to consider the solar energy option.


No one else will be able to get the install price that Wal-Mart got--PowerLight, BP, and SunEd are taking a loss and chalking it up to SG&A.
