March 24 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar inverter maker Ginlong Technologies Co Ltd (SHE:300763) has provided its equipment for 2 MW of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) installations at Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) stores across Mexico.

Eight stores of Wal-mart de Mexico SAB de CV (BMV: WALMEX), the local unit of the US supermarket chain, have been fitted with Ginlong’s 60-kW Solis inverters, the Chinese manufacturer said last week.

Installations at Walmart stores in four Mexican cities were connected to the grid in January.

Ginlong highlighted that the PV arrays would not only meet each store’s daytime electricity needs, but also support Walmart’s progress to reach the goal of 50% of renewables in power supply by 2025.
