September 14 (Renewables Now) - Global renewables company EDP Renovaveis SA (ELI:EDPR) said it has signed 51 contracts to install 38.3 MW of distributed solar energy systems for US supermarket chain owner Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) at its locations in seven US states.

These projects were delivered by EDPR’s subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC, specifically, the EDPR NA DG unit. The bulk of the contracts and projects, a total of 39, were executed between 2020 and 2021, EDPR said.

EDPR NA DG’s work on five solar installations for Walmart stores in New Jersey won the Large-Scale Project of the Year award from the Solar Builder magazine, according to the renewables company.
