In fact, Walmart believes it can save a billion dollars on their energy bill by 2020 if they meet their targets. Since 2005, they have already improved their fleet efficiency by an awesome 84.2 percent. If a company that massive can make such admirable changes over time, then there is no excuse for anyone else.
