Here are the top 20 companies for the use of on-site, deployed solar power capacity in the U.S.:

1. Walmart
2. Costco
3. Kohl’s Department Stores
4. IKEA
5. Macy’s

Notably, the top 20 corporate solar users’ installations generate an estimated $47.3 million worth of electricity each year, and the amount of solar installed by the top 20 solar-powered companies could power more than 46,500 average U.S. homes. (Altogether, U.S. commercial solar installations could power more than 390,000 U.S. homes.)

The companies analyzed for this report have deployed more than 700 individual solar photovoltaic systems on their facilities in at least 25 states and Puerto Rico. More than 1.2 million solar PV panels were used for the top 20 corporate solar users’ installations. Combined, these arrays would cover more than 544 acres of rooftops.

I visited a lot of website but I believe this one has something extra in it. "It is the habit of mediocre minds to condemn all that is beyond their grasp." by La Rochefoucauld.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that
I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang
of it!
