Solar thermal magazine U.S. EPA Announces List of Top 100 U.S. Organizations Using Renewable Energy

Top 100 Organizations Using Renewable Energy.

Tech Sector Leads the Way

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Green Power Partnership released an updated list of the Top 100 organizations that are choosing to use electricity from clean, renewable sources like wind and solar power.

“By using green power, these companies and organizations are showing that business can flourish while taking meaningful steps to reduce carbon pollution,” said Gina McCarthy, EPA Administrator.

Making cleaner choices to power our communities, institutions and businesses reduces the pollution that contributes to climate change, protects America’s health and environment, and supports continued growth in the green power sector.

Intel Corporation continues its seven-year run as the nation’s largest voluntary user of green power, meeting 100 percent of its electricity load with renewable resources. Other technology companies in the top 10 include Microsoft Corporation, Google Inc., and Apple Inc. Apple increased its annual green power use by nearly 100 million kilowatt-hours (kWh), moving from No. 11 to No. 8 on the list. In total, the combined green power usage of these Top 100 Partners amounts to nearly 24 billion kWh annually, which represents close to 83 percent of the green power commitments made by all EPA Green Power Partners. The list is calculated based on annual green power usage (in kilowatt-hours) by Green Power Partners. 

The top 10 partners appearing on the Top 100 list include:

1. Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, Calif.) 2. Kohl’s Department Stores (Menomonee Falls, Wis.) 3. Microsoft Corporation (Redmond, Wash.) 4. Whole Foods Market (Austin, Texas) 5. Google Inc. (Mountain View, Calif.) 6. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (Bentonville, Ark.) 7. Staples (Framingham, Mass.) 8. Apple Inc. (Cupertino, Calif.) 9. City of Houston, Texas

10. U.S. Department of Energy (Washington, D.C.)
