Wal Mart Mexico going green

Recently Wal Mart Mexico (WALMEX) announced that it would be switching all of its stores to wind power by 2025.  This includes all of the units of the Wal Mart group including Superama grocery stores, Wal Mart, Suburbia, Bodegas, Sam's Club, Vips, El Porton.

The stores and restaurants will be powered by the Wind Farm 'I Lamatalaventosa Oaxaca, in the state of Oaxaca.  The farm has 27 2.5 MW turbines and will reduce CO2 emissions by 137 tons, which is the equivalent of removing 21,000 vehicles from the roads.
