Why is Walmart participating in Florida’s electric regulatory process?

The retail giant is getting involved in two main types of dockets.


The complexities of Florida’s electric regulatory process are usually taken on only by the state’s power companies. But here’s a surprising participant:

Walmart.

Over the past three years, Walmart has weighed in on an increasing number of issues before the Florida Public Service Commission. Some of the uptick is because of timing — some issues, such as energy efficiency goals, are scheduled to come up once every five years.

But others show the retail giant taking a more active role in dockets that affect its energy bills, particularly those that deal with renewable energy.

“They’ve made pledges to reduce their carbon emissions,” said Andrew Hoffman, professor of environment and sustainability at the University of Michigan. “They want to meet that objective (with) the lowest cost possible.”
