Walgreens is betting on it with the opening of its solar-powered drugstore of the future — America’s first dedicated retail space that generates all of the energy it needs to operate on-site. Among them are solar panels and wind turbines, as well as the use of geothermal energy and LED lighting. The store will serve as an educational platform as well as a promotional tool — Walgreens has put major emphasis on making their eco-friendly status both visible and informative. The location of the store is in close proximity to both the Walgreens headquarters in Deerfield, Illinois as well as the Northwestern University campus, making it accessible as a learning tool for people from both places.
