In this segment, Tyler discusses how Wal-Mart's (NYSE:WMT) ambitious goals to deliver 7 billion kilowatt-hours of renewable energy to its operations by 2020 plays right into the hands of SolarCity (NASDAQ:SCTY). The two companies have a working relationship building over 130 rooftop solar installations on Wal-Mart stores this year, and there is lots of potential to build more of them. While the deals thus far are not earth-shattering for one of the world's largest retailers, the work that SolarCity is doing for Wal-Mart is about 13% of their business this year. Tune into the video below to learn more about this relationship and some other companies that could be looking to ride Wal-Mart's energy goals.
