Wal-Mart Canada Opens Green Demo Store


Latest News > Green Building News

A new Wal-Mart store in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, is being billed as an "environmental demonstration" store, intended to show Wal-Mart is serious about sustainability throughout its operations.

Highlight of the store is a geothermal heating/cooling system that uses 15 kilometers of piping under the parking lot to exchange heat to and from the earth, according to CNNMoney. It also includes in-floor radiant heating and cooling.

The company has similar stores in Texas and Colorado. All three stores are being used to test energy-saving features and determine what makes sense to include in stores throughout the chain. Wal-Mart estimates that the Burlington store will use 60% less energy, reports CNNMoney. Click to read the full story.
