25 Aug: Best Buy to power 57 Texas locations with clean solar energy

Best Buy has committed to be carbon neutral across our business by 2040, and we’re taking another big step toward that goal by expanding our use of renewable energy.

We recently signed a 10-year agreement with Constellation, a leading energy company, to power 57 stores and a 600,000-square-foot distribution center with solar energy sourced from the 140-megawatt Big Star Solar project that is currently in development in Texas. Our portion of the project is expected to produce approximately 46,845 megawatt hours per year.
