Wal Mart Drops Hints that it Might Buy It's Own Power Plants

Saw it at the Environmental Leader.

Wal Mart, suggest that it would buy its own power generation. This coming after Wal Mart was criticized for only moving 1% of it's energy needs over to solar panels. The Wal Mart spokesperson saying that though greening its image, Wal Mart is still a frugal company and will move when cost effective. Green power being to expensive in the retail commercial market in the quantities they would need to buy.

If Wal Mart does buy power plants this would be big. This would be a huge move in vertical integration for a large power user. I believe it would be the first Corporation to take responsibility for 100% of its own power generation at the point of creation.
