Safeway Commits to Green Power

September 2005 - Safeway, one of the largest food and drug retailers in North America, announced that it will purchase renewable energy to power the company's 270 fuel stations in the United States, its 15 stores in San Francisco, and the Safeway corporate campuses in Pleasanton and Walnut Creek, California. Under an agreement with 3 Phases Energy (now serviced by 3Degrees), Safeway will purchase 78 million kWh of wind energy annually, thus becoming California's largest buyer of renewable energy and one of the nation's largest buyers of green power.
