Australian supermarkets have begun warring over renewable energy

Coles has announced it and solar panel company Metka EGN will build three solar power plants in regional New South Wales to help the supermarket meet 10% of its power needs with renewable energy.

The development comes as Coles ramps up its efforts to compete with rival Woolworths on green energy, an emerging point of contention between the two.

That’s seen each of the supermarket giants take major steps towards cutting their electricity consumption and generating more solar energy to power their stores.
