April 2005 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Green Power Partnership released its list of the nation's "Top 25" green power purchasers. The U.S. Air Force leads the list with annual renewable energy purchases of 321 million kWh for Air Force bases across the country, followed by Johnson & Johnson (241 million kWh), EPA (221 million kWh), The World Bank (85 million kWh) and the U.S. General Services Administration, Region 2 (76 million kWh).

Partners in the program pledge to switch to green power for a portion of their electricity needs in return for EPA technical assistance and public recognition.
