Roby Brock reports on Walmart’s request to participate in a state Public Service Commission case on energy conservation and efficiency. It’s a big energy user, of course, but it also says it has undertaken a number of energy effiency strategies of its own that would make it a unique contributor to the case.

I think any help against the utility companies is welcome (see the hunting club that has fought SWEPCO to the death on its power plant). But there is always the potential that serving corporate interests could cause collateral damage to small electric users (residential customers). The state attorney general once carried that banner high.
