"These are important steps toward reaching our long-term goal to power our global infrastructure using 100 percent renewable energy", she added. Each turbine is over 300 feet tall and their wingspans are even longer than a Boeing 747 commercial jet. The plan is to ramp up use of renewable solar and wind power to offset energy used at its facilities, increasing the energy-efficiency of heating and lighting sources in stores, actively managing its refrigerant inventory and exploring new programs, Target said.
