Whole Foods Becomes Largest Corporate Purchaser

January 2006 - Whole Foods Market, the nation's largest natural and organic foods supermarket, announced that it is purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs) to offset 100% of the electricity used in all of its stores. The purchase, totaling 458 million kWh of wind energy annually, makes Whole Foods the leading corporate purchaser of green power in the United States, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership. Whole Foods also becomes the nation's first Fortune 500 Company to be entirely green-powered. The RECs are being supplied by Renewable Choice Energy (RCE).
