Carol Tomé joins CNBC’s Squawk Box to Discuss Home Depot’s Fuel Cell Initiatives

October 25, 2016

Since 2014, The Home Depot has utilized fuel cells for on-site electricity production at approximately 140 stores, and even forklifts in our distribution centers.

They offer a reliable alternative to standard electricity generation that provides nearly 90 percent of a store’s power while reducing carbon emissions and saving water. The use of fuel cells is expected to grow well into 2017.

Today, Carol Tomé, CFO of The Home Depot, joined CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss The Home Depot’s renewable strategy with a focus on fuel cell technology. See the full segment here.
