Walmart, the world’s largest retail corporation, operates hundreds of stores throughout Central America, including the region’s largest Walmart store located in Roosevelt, Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Recently, the store replaced its older Ternium TR-101 trapezoidal rib metal roof with a new KR-18 standing seam roof and installed a 690kWp solar array, which generates 1GW per year and reduces carbon emissions by 31 tons annually.
The project was completed in less than a month, with the solar installation completed in just eight days by two crews of four installers each. The facility’s 1,260 rooftop solar modules were held in place utilizing the S-5! PVKIT® rail-less solar mounting solution along with S-5-MX™ Mini clamps.
